    Default Best from Marvel in the 90s

    In my opinion, Marvel gets too much-undeserved flack and bad rep due to some really bad stuff that did come out, but other really good stuff did as well.


    I wanted to list my favorites from the era, encourage others to do the same and hopefully turn some hearts and minds:


    (In no particular order)

    Marvels by Busiek and Ross

    Marvels-01-nm-marvel.jpg

    Nicieza's run on adjectiveless X-Men - best X book of the 90s for me



    Ellis' run on Doom 2099 - the beginnings of a great writer



    David's run on Hulk - a classic, everyone can agree on this one I think.
    Harras' (sans Kavanaugh) run on Avengers - may be an unpopular opinion but I really enjoyed the Gatherers Saga. Shame it went so badly off the rails afterwards.
    (latter half of) Gruenwald's run on Captain America - another classic run.
    (early) Jurgens' run on Thor - despite the writer's name here it was a return to form for Thor's solo book and lasted over 80 issues.
    Busiek's run on Thunderbolts - the best new concept of the 90s.
    Busiek's run on Avengers - best revitalization of a then very badly damaged franchise.
    Loeb's Cable - made Nathan a must read.
    Claremont's Fantastic Four - brought the book back to form after years of mediocrity.
    Kevin Smith followed by David Mack Daredevil.
    Busiek's run on Iron man
    Krueger and Ross Earth X

    I'm likely forgetting something else, I'll edit the post as needed.

    Thanks for reading.

    Is this only ongoings? If limited series also count Marvels by Busiek and Ross should be mentioned.
    Tolstoy will live forever. Some people do. But that's not enough. It's not the length of a life that matters, just the depth of it. The chances we take. The paths we choose. How we go on when our hearts break. Hearts always break and so we bend with our hearts. And we sway. But in the end what matters is that we loved... and lived.

    My Top (3) Three:

    1. PRE-Heroes Reborn Captain America from Mark Waid & Ron Garney





    2. John Ostrander on Punisher





    3. Jeph Loeb on Cable (In fact, nearly the entire '90s run could be recommended)

    Got that right. I'll file that under big stuff I forgot.

    I couldn't get past Capmania on Waid's run. Does it get better?

    I seem to recall Nicieza's New Warriors being pretty good.

    Honestly, I kinda zoned-out until Cap had his shield restored...

    Me too. But, it got better once Rich Rider went back to his original uniform...

    Busiek's Thunderbolts wins hands down, for me, followed by New Warriors, but I also loved X-Men 2099.

    La Lunatica, Xian Chi Xan, Krystalin and Meanstreak are some of my favorite X-Men, even more than many classic modern-day X-folk!
