    Default Best Marvel Storylines

    So I look at lists involving this quite a lot on the internet...what are the/your best Marvel Storylines? Please agree/debate/state your own!

    I’ll start with a few of mine. Storylines everyone seems to look at/know of when they think of a character:

    Daredevil: Born Again
    Captain America: The Winter Soldier (#1-9, #11-14) - this just slightly edges out “Death of Captain America” for me.
    Old Man Logan (Millar & McNiven)
    The Annihilation Saga
    Thor: Godbutcher/Godbomb
    The Original Secret Wars
    The Galactus Trilogy
    Days of Future Past
    The Dark Phoenix Saga
    Astonishing X-Men (specifically Gifted)
    Kravens Last Hunt
    Immortal Iron-Fist #1-16 (essentially the Fraction/Brubaker/Aja run)

    For Frank Miller, his first run as writter is even better than Born Again.
    Old Man Logan is good, but I wouldn't say to be concidered as the to 10 Best.

    No Hulk, your list must be missing something.

    I would add:
    * "The Kid Who Collects Spider-Man" - Amazing Spider-Man #248
    * Planet Hulk - Hulk #92-105
    * Hulk: The End by Peter David

    I did forget to add Planet Hulk, you’re right. A part of me thinks that if Immortal Hulk carries on the way it does, that could be a contender too.

    Garth Ennis’ Fury trilogy:
    Fury, Fury: Peacemaker, Fury: My War Gone By

    One of my all time favourite comic runs and strangely under represented in lists like this.

    Many of the good ones have been mentioned, but there's quite a few missing as well, imho.

    Here's my take:

    Daredevil: Man Without Fear (actually prefer this to born again)
    Captain America and the Falcon: Secret Empire (1974 - Richard Nixon... is the leader of the SECRET EMPIRE!)
    Wolverine (1982, claremont / miller)
    The Death of Captain Marvel
    Secret Wars (2015, hickman)
    Silver Surfer: Parable (1988, Lee / Moebius - they won an Eisner.)
    Dr Strange / Dr Doom: Triumph and Torment (1990 stern / mignola)
    Xmen: God loves, Man Kills
    Spider-man no more (1967, Peter Parker gives up being spider-man - the Kingpin makes his debut)
    Inhumans (1998, Jenkins / Jae Lee)


    And yeah, it's cheating, but technically... it's now a part of Marble - MIRACLE MAN! :P
