Looking at that list made me realize Infinity Gauntlet was, like, 25 years ago. Man.

Any great, or must read stories/runs from any era is appreciated. I mostly read DC/Vertigo and the occasional indie, so my Marvel reading has been sparse over the years.

Wish DC had a service like Marvel's. Some old DC runs I'd like to read.

That was where X-Factor peaked and 22 years later, it has yet to recover.

I love me some Morrison, but you can probably skip Marvel Boy.

I wouldn't. Not for a Marvel specific focus. Aaron built on a lot of the ideas setup there and fleshed them out. Hell, giant chunks of Marvel Boy informed Original Sin.

Yeah, you're probably right. It just didn't grab me at all. It was sort of a let down after the Invisibles.

Morrison always seemed to gel way more with his own stuff and DC.

He got close with X-Men, but it had 2 strikes going against it.

1) It was essentially nothing more than a modern homage to the Claremont/Byrne run.

2) Jemas and Quesada fucked with him from the fourth issue until he left.

Which is a shame, since I think X-men 127, the Xorn one, is one of the best X-Men comics ever written.

I was probably going to read Marvel Boy anyway, just to be a Morrison completist along with Skrull Kill Krew and that Fantastic Four mini. I'll lower my expectations.

Thanks for all the suggestions. This will keep me occupied for a while.

Morrison needs to do more with Marvel characters. He's probably too weird for Disney now, which is a real shame.

Yeah, although I was surprised, but happy, to hear he had some more DC stuff coming. I thought I had read that he was done with DC, at least for a while, after Multiversity, then they announce all these books. Heavy Metal should be interesting as well.
