Spotted an article about the 10 Best Marvel Comics storylines and thought it might spark some chat over here.

 

Not sure how many of you read comics. I like them a lot but I generally like the darker DC stuff :)

Secret Wars? I certainly wouldn't have put that on the list.

 

It's funny, when I was reading comics regularly DC meant crazy stuff with wafer-thin plots and wall-to-wall goofiness, whereas Marvel was seen as much more mature, dealing with relationships and "real world" problems inside the supers framework. Somewhere along the way it all turned around. Still a huge Plastic Man fan, though ;)

I got as far as Secret Wars and had to stop. 5 popup ads per article is over my normal limit.

I was a bit surprised by Secret Wars as well. George Perez of course also did the rather lovely cover for Champions 4e... :)

Now Claremont X-Men on the other hand, wasn't such a surprise. That period of X-Men is my longest run on Marvel and was great stuff. Particularly as it was before the mass proliferation of related titles and huge cross over events!

As for Mark Millar. Don't get me started on that topic.... If you're familiar with his "contribution" to 2000AD, you'll know what I'm talking about... :/

No Excalibur? I think that was the last series I collected.

 

Possibly 25 years ago though now ...

Hey @Hal, don't you think that this picture of the new movie version of Quicksilver looks a lot like @TheGlen?

Spider-Man Vs. Ant-Man (definitely a scene from the upcoming Marvel Civil War movie).
