    I don't think this holds up....the dialogue is very cringy at times even though the overall stories are pretty damn good.

    Tough question, a lot of superhero comics age terribly. I can't think of many series that don't lose something after putting a few years on, topical references become dated, and even something that is largely innovative is likely to be dulled as those features are spread out or even become cliche. I think Spider-Man has had more luck with this than a lot of comics characters/series. There are some surprisingly fun reads going back to the sixties, and it's hard to find a large chunk of consecutive issues that are all bad going through the decades.
    Continuity, even in a "shared" comics universe is often insignificant if not largely detrimental to the quality of a comic.

    Die - Excalibur - New Mutants - Once & Future - Runaways - RWBY - X-Men

    Nobody cares about what you don't like, they barely care about what you do like.

    Then team up between Dr. Strange and Dr. Doom to save the soul of Doomís mother. The Tome and Torment itís called I think.

    I'm surprised Claremont's X-Men hasn't been brought up. I wouldn't consider that dated at all (At least the early issues).

    I think most of the kids today would consider it to be overwritten by today's standards.

    Same. I've been re-reading them recently too, they've aged soooooo well! Still a brilliant series.

    I recently completed Roger Stern's Avengers run and loved it. I had read parts of it as a kid and it still holds up well. I will soon be re-reading Claremont's Uncanny X-Men post issue 150 to see if its as amazing as I remember.

    X Statix is from the Ultimates mold so to speak, but I don't think the things that make it great really have lost their charm. We've gotten deeper into the reality tv/celebrity/social media hole so it's probably more relevant in some ways.



    I think the Spider-Man of Stan, Steve, and John is pretty dated but completely lovable. Same with the Thomas and Everett era Namor.

    My age and exposure to the material don't seem to stop me from loving the purple Claremont and Wein X-Men type stuff.

    This is actually my example of the opposite. For all the people who threw McKenzie under the bus, Miller's stuff was just as dated decades later in my first readings, with the added problem of also being edgy in a way surpassed by later generations. The references, depictions of African Americans, and body language of the characters are far behind what I'd consider in a classic.

    O'Neil with his Loves Labors Lost stuff to me has aged better. Hama's Wolverine, Moench's MK and also the Fist of Khonshu hold up well as action comics. The writing of Busiek and the Ennis Punisher stuff don't seem to ever feel dated. And Conan with Thor to a lesser extent seem eternal by design.

    I think it is "Triumph and Torment" but, yes, an excellent read.

    And "Panther's Rage" from Jungle Action #6 through #18. Always "Panther's Rage."

    I'm just now starting McGregor and restarting Priest, they seem pretty solid so far.

    McGregor's Panther work was extraordinary and had the long-term storytelling that was actually ahead of its time.

    I definitely appreciated that take on mutants being celebrities, even though it was more for parody.
