Yeah, but for the love of god, stop after the second miniseries. If you see the name Jeph Loeb close the comic immediately.

For X-Men I'd recommend the Morrison run on New X-Men (#114-154) and Joss Whedon on Astonishing X-Men. I've never really read Spider-Man regularly, so I have no idea there. I mostly enjoyed Bendis's extended Avengers run(s), but it's inextricably tied into an endless series of crossover events, so I can't really recommend it. Jonathan Hickman's current run on Avengers is pretty good. I also enjoyed Hickman's Fantastic Four run. Also Runaways, and the Garth Ennis and Greg Rucka runs on Punisher. I only read the last arc of the Ennis run, but it was amazing. I can be more specific with years and issue numbers if you're interested in any of this.

Actually I take that back, Ultimate Spider-Man is pretty great until it starts getting derailed by dumb crossover events. But that doesn't start happening until after issue #120 or so.

I'd agree with that, but dropping into either one (especially house of M) without knowing who is who and what is what will just lead to frustration.

I also think that the current runs of Magneto, Black Widow and Moon Knight are pretty great too. None of these are involved in this summer's cross-over which makes them noob friendly.

I'd recommend avoiding anything Ultimate altogether. It's a parallel universe, it's likely to get confusing, the characters are not the classic versions, and there's plenty of great reading out there without it. Also, personally, I don't think it as a whole is as good.

Also, a caveat about Secret Wars: It was made to sell toys. It can introduce you to some of the characters, but it was not of the highest quality, and it's from 1984 and got dated quickly.

I agree with the the Infinity Gauntlet series, and Brubaker's Captain America run. I also highly recommend Captain America's Red, White, and Black series, all of Volume I of the Thunderbolts, and Civil War, which is as good an introduction as you are going to get to the various characters and dynamics, so you can pick ones you like to follow more diligently.

For current runs, don't miss Hawkeye, and I'd also recommend Secret Avengers. Also, though they're not from the center-lined spheres that you specifically mentioned, She-Hulk (if you don't mind weird art), Moon Knight (although Warren Ellis's run only has one more issue), and Ms. Marvel (if you don't mind stories centered on teenagers) are all exceptional.

Wish DC did something like this, I'd go head first into Batman.
To get a look at a Hulk comic/stories done well check out Incredible Hulk #324 to about #450.

I honestly don't think there was much worth reading after that until Planet Hulk/World War Hulk.

Both of which I highly recommend...

Agreed.

I liked the First Ultimates series and liked the Hulk vs. Wolverine limited series...

I'm going to have to seek out that Hulk vs. Wolverine series. Clearly my Ultimates recommendation has met some controversy, but I think the first one isn't too bad. I read about half of Ultimates 2, got bored and never returned to that universe.

Jerm, you've been given a huge reading list. When you get tired of reading Marvel, let us know and I'm sure we'll all point you in other directions like:

Saga
Sex Criminals
Zero
Velvet
Preacher
Y The Last Man

Haven't been keeping up on anything ongoing because I'm kind of a DC guy and New 52 has been utter ****ing shit from the get go but anyone else find it hilarious that all the hipsters are raving about Cameron Stewart's new Batgirl design when... it's basically the exact same as Quitely/Daniels's Damian Wayne outfit that's existed for like 3/almost-four-ish years?
