    That was when Marvel was at its zenith. We had the original Transformers comics, Marvel 2099, New Universe, Heroes Reborn/Return, Age of Apocalypse, Days of Future Past, Secret Wars (the original), Secret Wars II, (mostly) great artists (who later quit and formed Image), and more. I also like the Avengers' traditional comic costumes more than their's carried over from the movies, but I understand it needs to be done to draw in new readers. Also, Spider-Man still had a long-standing secret ID and marriage with MJ status-quo, which was ruined by Civil Wars later on.


I would say Marvel was definitely at its Zenith, especially in the 80s. Miller's DD blew my mind. The X-men in the 80s were at their height and then they got even bigger in the 90s. It was a great time to be an X-men fan. People criticize the X-events of the 90s but Age of Apocalypse is one of my most cherished events. You had the many animated series and cards and toys exploding. I loved Peter David's run on Hulk too and it was filled with great artists. Oh and how could I forget Joe Kelly's Deadpool?
