Especially the last 30 or so issues.. fucking great stuff. The one arc around #200 about the Invisible Woman was kind of iffy, but since then PAD has been doing something really special, bringing supernatural elements and the future and shit all into it.
Honestly, outside of the Secret Invasion arc and maybe the Invisible Woman arc.. amazing run. It's up there with Claremont's Uncanny for all time X-Men runs. PAD's got a similar approach, which I love - seeding various plots and subplots throughout the run, and picking them up at a later point. I love longform storytelling like that.
I agree it has been the most consistent Marvel book, with Journey Into Mystery a close second, but, this last arc has dragged on and it's gotten a bit boring.
