Also I read some famous stories like: Civil War 1, Kraven's Last Hunt, Daredevil Born Again, and a lot of Spider-man comics in the 90's.

With that said I'd like to know which Marvel comics would be a good jumping point for me now. I was thinking maybe Jonathan Hickman's Avengers? Or Brian Bendis All-New X-Men?

Or is there something newer that I should be looking into? If there is I would prefer but any suggestion is appreciated. I'm looking for the best Marvel comics out there.

Thanks.

PS. I'm huge DC fan, I read a lot of the classics, specially Batman stories, and almost everything I wanted of the New 52. Unfortunately I'm a little behind on Rebirth but I already know what to look for, I'm just too lost when it comes to Marvel.

For X-Men I'd avoid Bendis' run. It's not his best work. Start further back. Morrison's New X-Men run or Whedon's Astonishing X-Men run. The New X-Men (Academy X) run that came after Morrison's was pretty cool too. It focused on the younger mutants still in school. Then there is my personal favorite X-run Maddrox/X-Factor Investigations.

Those are all from the same basic era. If you want something a little more recent go with Aaron's Wolverine and the X-Men run.

If Starfire is just Goku and if Blackfure is Raditz, when is DC going to make the Vegeta character? Hopefully in another Starfire solo series.

Good luck ever seeing another Starfire solo series. That book bombed and it only got 12 issues due to Palmiotti and Conner. Even though the book was great :(

I need this variant.

God damn that thing is amazing. I don't need the variant, a hi-res textless .jpeg will do.

If you'd like. I must have accidentally deleted it.

Speaking of variants. Warren Louw did a variant for next weeks Harley birthday book. Two versions depending on your tastes. I love his harley so very much. Its only available in one store though :/

I bought two prints off of Warren recently. He offered to ship them to me even though he usually doesnt sell them outside of cons. super nice.

In the books reveal he felt the need to drop a mention to Black Lives Matter and the wage gap and the second he felt any kind of pushback he got defensive and started saying his batman wasnt political , wasnt SJW batman .

“My main goal was to undo the comic tropes while changing Gotham from a comic book city into a real city—a city dealing with everything from Black Lives Matter to the growing wage gap,” Murphy said in the interview. “[But] rather than write a comic about the wage gap, I gave those ideas to the Joker, who leads a kind of media war against Gotham’s elite by winning people over with his potent observations and rhetoric.”

I don't technically disagree with the centrist comment, but that's generally only applicable for a political climate where the right hasn't gone completely off the deep end.

Look at the last few tweets of those accounts....look at the people he is trying to appease...and the implication of what the messages they sent him have.

I still haven't forgiven the guy for flaking out on Tokyo Ghost. I don't believe for a second that TG was only supposed to be 10 issues. They clearly skipped over stuff to get to the end.

I'm politically down the middle, but, man, it would have been best if he just hadn't said anything and let the comics do the talking. :/

Guys... he's still trying to sell some comicbooks in the end. It's not like his actual story's going to change since a lot of it is finished by now. He's just saying this stuff so people will buy his products.

And he brings up in other tweets that he's been getting harassed by trolls and is clearly worried it'll damaged the comic's word of mouth.
