    I liked Heroes for Hire and Quicksilver from the 90's (together).

    mark waid and one of the kuberts pumped out about 14 issues of ka-zar. he fought thanos. good stuff.

    steven seagle's alpha flight was great through the first year. i have never in my life cared about alpha flight outside of his run.

    joe kelly's deadpool is the best deadpool.

    until the day i die i shall lament the loss of marvel universe, which lasted 7 issues. it was supposed to focus on the marvel universe prior to fantastic four #1 in 1961. the first three issues had the invaders, the last four featured the monster hunters. so much potential.

    warren ellis' four-issue "not dead yet" run on wolverine is by far my favorite wolverine story.

    I always have to give some love to the 90's Silver Surfer series. I loved the Jim Starlin/Ron Lim (32-50) and the Ron Marz/ Ron Lim (51-91) runs. Just amazing cosmic action and both writers really knew how to use the WHOLE cosmic side of the MCU, and Ron Lim drew one of the best Silver Surfers ever.

    Another great cosmic series was Warlock and the Infinity Watch which sprang out of the Infinity Gauntlet event. That along with The Warlock Chronicles mini series just made it a great time to be a cosmic Marvel fan.

    The original New Warriors series was to me great as well.

    I on the other hand did Loved how Todd McFarlane depicted the Lizard and Calypso in that one.
    Another one I read not that long ago was The New Fantastic Four: Monsters Unleashed (1991) that I thought was pretty cool. In it the actual FF are in peril and a new temporary team is assembled consisting of Wolverine, Ghost Rider, Spider-Man and The Hulk.
    I'd love to see this happen in live-action in the Marvel Cinematic Universe post MCU Phase 3!

    - Onslaught Saga: That was the big X-Men event for me back in the 90s
    - Maximum Carnage: A crazy story with many heroes trying to stop the bloodbath
    - McFarlane's Spiderman: Some of my favorite Spiderman Stories
    - Venom: Lethal Protector

    If you want a single issue fun, then Amazing Spiderman 350 is worth checking out. Spiderman fights Doctor Doom. The fight didn't go well for Spidey (putting it lightly) and he has to find/team up with a burglar to retrieve an item that was stolen from Doom

    I don't know if you mind X-Books but I always felt this one was more a European Avengers than X-Men. But I'd pick up Alan Davis writing and art run of the 90s as well as the Warren Ellis run of Excalibur as well later that same era. It has some nice art by Carlos Pacheco (before X-Men stole him) and Casey Jones. The beginning Claremont/Davis arcs are also good but you may be turned off by all the dimension hopping like some were and it started in 88 but it's close enough, I think. I'd give this story a go. But Marvel seems to like to shit on this book for some reason.

    Those were both good and I was especially sad when HFH was cancelled, great art, writing and characters.

    LOL! I jumped in without reading your name! I'm pretty sure you've read Excalibur already.

    Have you read Thunder Bolts or Captain Marvel? The Captain Marvel was male in this but not the original I'm pretty sure. I rather enjoyed that one and the art was good as well. I can't remember the writer, though, but I think it was Peter David or Mark Waid.

    The writer was Peter David and it was about the adventures of Genis-Vell, the son of Mar-Vell, the original Captain Marvel. IMHO, the best heir, and the one that made most sense, of the Captain Marvel title. To rise sales, PAD made Genis insane, which resulted in amazing stories, but also stigmatized a bit the character, then Fabian Nicieza killed him in the pages of Thunderbolts (although I could see a way to bring him back, but it involved Rick Jones, now also dead).

    Peace

    I don't hold on to comics. I usually end up giving them away but Heroes For Hire was good because I remember buying it month to month. I bailed on Quicksilver after the first issue. It was around this time that I started to suspect that Marvel speedsters were terrible.

    Good to see people shout out The Silver Surfer runs. The Jim Starlin/Ron Lim and Ron Marz/Ron Lim runs are the best Surfer runs. Ron Lim is the greatest Silver Surfer artist of all time, better than Kirby and Moebius. Yeah, I said it.
