This might be my favorite Marvel event ever. Just character building stories.

I especially love how, in some, they tried to make it genre-like... almost like it could have been an Atlas era comic.

My favorites are

-Spec. Spider-Man
-Incredible Hulk

Honorable mentions to Journey into Mystery and Venom for cool ideas and trying to mesh with pre-Marvel.

Some of the books really were great at capturing that Golden/Silver Age feel while also remaining 90s book (good 90s books), which is really the trick.

The X-Titles did pretty well during this event. Generation X, Cable and X-Man told great character building tales that were necessary but not over-the-top. While Uncanny X-Men was a bit of a fail, featuring Rachel Summers going back to the start of the Sentinels, the secondary title, X-Men(1991) outshone it with a story of Prof. X and Magneto. Not really anything new, but always good when done well.

Incredible Hulk was, without a doubt, the most important story told during this event, but I just couldn't get on board with the storytelling technique.

My favorites are the Spider-Man books. The Spectacular Spider-Man story was great, as mentioned below, and the Venom issue was an unexpected pleasure. Sensational was probably the least of the stories, but still fun and a nice continuation of Amazing Spider-Man -1. I was expecting to dislike Spider-Man (1990) -1 but it was better than I remembered.
