and you've clearly never read the Fraction/Bru Immortal Iron Fist stuff. that is un-dislikable.


How did you know I just started that arc and am already a little sick of it. I do love Sawyer as Iron Man though.

If you're going back 7 years looking for titles to read, Dan Slott's She-Hulk run was great. Its all collected in five trades, the first one titled "Single Green Female".

It was right after Stark Disassembled. Started around 25 or 26 and ended what felt like 175 issues later.

Planet Hulk!

Pre-Civil War but probably the best Hulk story in recent years. It may be hard to find a hardcover but the paperback is around.

World War Hulk was also good. It's the fallout from Planet Hulk.

For recent X-Men stories I'd recommend Messiah Complex but that's where I stopped. Grant Morrison's New X-Men is a really great take but its early 2000s way before Civil War.
