    X-O Manowar from Valiant lasted 70 issues. They actually had two #50s numbered 50-X and 50-O.

So I guess X-O was Valiant's most popular feature? It was always the one of theirs that tempted me the most - because it made me think of Iron Man.

I checked out the Omnibus on Amazon and it looks like the price is going down, which is good. I want it to come down a bit more before I buy it.

In any case - X-O Manowar is in!

Well, the three heavy hitters Solar, Turok and Magnus all enjoyed similar runs I think. But X-O might have been their most popular homegrown talent. Man, I didn't dig deep enough. Bloodshot also ran 51 issues (or 52 if you count #0). What else have I missed?

Back to legacy characters like Tim Drake or Kyle Rayner. How about Dan Ketch as Ghost Rider? His 90s series ran 90-some issues, and he was arguably more popular than the the original run with Blaze.
