I'm with you on the Winter Soldier and Iron Fist. Those are two of the best things to happen at Marvel in a while.

Hal Jordan as Green Lantern. I used to hate the character with a vengeance and loved Emerald Twilight and Kyle taking over as GL. I only ever liked Hal as the Spectre.

So when I heard about Rebirth I was pretty annoyed. But Johns has managed the impossible and made me like Hal...

I've always loved Hal. What got me into Green Lantern was the old Superfriends cartoon when I was a kid. Hal was the GL I grew up with. I'm so glad he was brought back and restored as GL and a hero.

I liked him in New Frontier, but Kyle was always My GL too.

Crossgen (although i really only got into Ruse and Negation)
Winter Soldier
the All-New Atom
Ben Reilly (not the Clone Saga, not the stupid twists and turns, just the character)
Cable & Deadpool (2 Liefeld characters, Liefeld covers, and what sounded like the dumbest premise ever turned into one of my favorite books of the last decade)


more to come later, i'm sure...

The truth is slowly coming out. Soon you will be admitting to being a huge Power Pack fan,

Power Pack is awesome. :evil: if Coyle ever gets a job in Hollywood, you too will line up with your bastard children to buy tickets to the Pack movie on opening day. :P :-D 8)

World War Hulk (fun smashy comic)
The Boys (I do not like Garth Ennis...incidentally, The Boys just fucking rocked my world)
the two Black Widow minis by Richard K. Morgan (These are cool, Marvel needs to get a clue and get the third series out)
The first 13 issues of Invincible (I thought this comic was going to suck, but after reading the first 13 issues it was awesome)
Alan Moore's Swamp Thing (I never wanted to read it because I read the first issue and wasn't interested, but after reading the first collection I had to read the rest)
The Other Side (I had no idea who the writer was, and I thought it was going to be mediocre, with good art, but I didn't expect the writing to be as good as it was. It was way better.)
