    That was when Marvel was at its zenith.

Agreed! I loved Marvel comics in the 80s and 90s. X-Men were at their best in the 80s and 90s and I couldn't get enough of them. Uncanny X-Men written by Claremont in the 80s and 1990 were incredible, and I loved the X-Men comics in the 90s. My favorite X-Man, Gambit, was introduced in 1990 and a very enjoyable Gambit solo series started in 1999.

And not only did you have the great X-men comics by Claremont in the 80s, but you also had Frank Miller on Daredevil, Simonson on Thor, and Byrne on Fantastic Four. And yeah, Heroes Return was great. You got the incredible run on Avengers by Busiek and Perez, and the relaunched Thor by Jurgens and Romita Jr. which was awesome and was where I first really got into the character.

    Also, Spider-Man still had a long-standing secret ID and marriage with MJ status-quo, which was ruined by Civil Wars later on.

Yep, I was huge fan of Spider-Man before Quesada ruined him in One More Day, and the 80s and 90s were my favorite time periods for Spider-Man comics(aside from the end of the Clone Saga and the period when Ben Reilly was portrayed as the real Spider-Man). I loved his relationship with Mary Jane, and I loved the stories with Venom and Carnage.
