    Byrne's work. I didn't see the point of what he did with Superman and I don't think he really understood the Fantastic Four.

Honestly I think Byrne's Fantastic Four is probably the best comic run at Marvel from the 80's. His Alpha Flight was just as good and deserves some mention as one of the gems from the 80's.

If he didn't get the Fantastic Four he sure as heck improved them over something I didn't like. I like Byrne's version better than any other version of the characters.

One thing of Byrne's I thought was overrated was Byrne's Namor run. People complain about his FF or AWC coast runs but those weren't that bad. Namor was when he ran out of ideas and the art really suffered. Around the time the whole Master Khan/Super Skrull/Iron Fist storyline was winding down you could tell his drawing and his writing weren't doing so hot and there hasn't been a lot of things he's drawn after that I liked. But I did like his FF, Avengers West Coast and Alpha Flight runs.
