    For me, it's mostly the X-Men books, but we discussed that a couple of weeks ago.

Agreed. I think a lot of people are sentimental for 90's X-Men, but let's face it: X-Men comics in that era were bad. The cartoon was good, but the comics were bad.

I also thought Death of Superman (which to be fair was my first adventure into DC) was really poorly done.


That's interesting. While I thought the "Doomsday" story was really weak (giant monster pops up out of the ground and punches things for 7 issues then punches Superman to death), I thought the follow-up "World Without a Superman" and "Reign of the Supermen" which lasted the next 6 months were really enjoyable. And unlike all the big event comic copycats it inspired, it actually added toys to the toybox instead of just breaking the old ones. They obviously had Superman's return planned from the beginning so it kind of made sense in a comic booky way. It's just unfortunate that it inspired stuff like "Emerald Twilight" and "Maximum Clonage."
