    Transformers was also shockingly more dark than the animated cartoon series for a child. (Issue 4 ended with 98% of the heroes dead, and their leader Optimus Prime's head severed from his body and held captive. A later issue had a woman left paralyzed from a Decepticon attack.)
    Totally agree with every dark moment you mentioned. But, at least, the cartoon had Doctor Arkeville being turned into a cyborg. Kinda creepy, IMHO.

    I liked "The New Mutants" and "Solo Avengers/ Avengers Spotlight" at the time.
    Totally agree with you about Solo Avengers/Avengers Spotlight. The first year's worth is still the best.

    Claremont's New Mutants was fantastic. I didn't list it because I lump it in with his X-Men run, but you're right, it should stand apart because you don't have to have read X-Men to follow this.

    I really liked the Thomas/Guice Doctor Strange, Sorcerer Supreme that started at the tail-end of the eighties and finished in 1990.

    Dennis O'Neil's work on Iron Man doesn't get talked about enough (#182, 1984).
