Rogue- a series that tells the Mystique and Ms. Marvel connections

I thought the entire Ultimate Spider-Man run was very good. (Both Peter and Miles)
I hated Ultimate Fantastic 4 at first, but it became great towards the end with the Maker.
I thought the Ultimate X-Men run was hit or miss.
Ultimate Elektra wasn't bad.
Unpopular opinion: I didn't like the Ultimates at all.
Definitely liked Secret Wars 2015 and Spider-Men
Library, seriously. They have everything
X-Men Endangered Species
X-Men Messiah Complex
X-Men Second Coming
Wolverine and the X-Men
Uncanny X-Men (Bendis)
House of X/Powers of X
Dawn of X
Either Homecoming or Guardians 1.
I'm reading the Dawn of X trades. On 12, but still have like 4 to go and X of Swords
It would be cool if they did Civil War show. I'm not trying to be funny, I mean doing the actual story with a much larger cast. The movie was super watered down and it would be nice to redo it with a much larger scope.
But yeah, in the comics the Civil War resolution was kind of sudden and it didn't really resolve anything- except a fantastic lead up to Secret Invasion
2015 Secret Wars was way better for me. One of the better events in general.
Yes, Dark Reign- but the end has to be some form of Siege, because he can't get away with it
I'd like to see a variation of Siege. But more of a show- watching Norman gain more political power and becoming more unhinged.
X-Men. The House of X/Powers of X event was a gamechanger. Lead to Dawn of X.
Also Miles Morales comics are always very good.
If this adds to the conversation, X-Men Endangered Species is about Beast's journey.
Spider-Woman all day
Rogue, Wolverine, Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew)
Anissa from Invincible.
Here is a pretty good resource
A couple people have recommended choosing comics of your favorite characters. I think that's a good idea, but also look for comic book events to read also. What really got me into comics was reading the events- it helped me understand why things mattered. Why does this person have this point of view? Why is the world structured this way? Also, in events there are usually many characters and will help familiarize yourself with them and expand your understanding of the variety of personalities. I understand reading a character you like, and I really enjoy reading Spider-Man, Miles Morales, Jessica Jones, X-Men, but the events really give context and nuance. This is an article that lists some essential events.
Fyi Secret Invasion and almost all the tie ins are my absolute favorite event. You quickly learn a lot about a variety of characters than span most of the corners of Marvel. The story is pretty complex and intricate, the action is phenomenal, the art tends to look top notch, and it has a lot of heart. This is a little over the top, but this is my definitive recommendation for the Secret Invasion storyline.

I have read comics long enough to fully believe that no one ever stays dead, no matter what anyone says. Just have patience and before you know it..
