I am looking to maybe get back into Marvel been a bit since I have read anything from them. I had a stint of lack of money and just feeling out picking up more titles again. I am a huge fan of The Darkness and Witchblade and things like those but I also like superhero type stuff as well. Anyway enough rambles from me. What titles would you recommended and why?


Well The Avengers franchise is the current lynchpin of the MU. My guess, since you like Darkness and teh Witchblade, New Avengers would be your speed. Bendis still writes that book. As of last issue, the team roster is more Avengery than it ever has been. The roster is the new Cap, Ms. Marvel, Ronin (former Hawkeye), Mockingbird, Spiderwoman, Spider-Man, Wolverine. Iron Fist may be leaving the book and Dr. Strange may return for good.

Mighty Avengers is the book for us longtime Assemblers who felt burned by the rosters Bendis! set up. Dan Slott takes over the book next issue. He has a respect for history and can be funny or serious when the occasion arises. The finalized roster isn't known yet. Slott said most of teh guys who assemble the first mission won't be around after the first arc. The team is going to be set up outside the US and Norman Osborn's influence. I think US Agent, Hercules, Wasp II, and Jocasta will form the core. Iron Man, Hulk, Vision, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and teh New Avengers are to be featured...who actually stays is unknown...REALLY looking forward to this one!

Dark Avengers is a new take on the original Thunderbolts formula. Villains posing as heroes. Deodato art and Bendis!' sharp take on villains will make this a winner.

Incredible Hercules-Marvels BEST book 'nuff said. The Amadeus Cho is wearing out his welcome with me

Captain America-Marvels most consistant book over the past 6 or 7 years. It's slowed up abit but they are working towards issue #50 right now. You can also see classic Avengers like Black Widow and Falcon here

X-Force-Marvel cancelled the excellent New X-Men book and gave us this. I thought I'd hate it. By Kyle and Yost are on their way to being superstars. This book is very gory and very violent. Basically an X-Men assassination team that is a secret from the team members friends. Archangel, Wolverine, Warpath, X-23, Dominoe, Elixir, Wolfsbane and MAYBE the Vanisher comprise this squad

Guardian of the Galaxy-amazingly good book full of cosmic n-listers. DnA should take over FF when Millar and Hitch are done this summer. Them writing FF and they will officially become writing elite. Groot is my fav. But it has a nice mixture of Warlock, Dra, Gamorra, Starlord, the new Quasar, Rocket Racoon, Mantis, Vance Astro, and Starhawk (and Aleta Starhawk)

For me thats the best Marvel has to offer right now.

If you want DC picks, Booster Gold, JSA, Green Lantern, Green Lantern Corps are the best of their bunch
