4. Astonishing X-Men

Marvel Comics have always hit gold with their popular X-Men comic book arcs, and Astonishing X-Men continued the trend for a modern audience. Before he became the guy behind The Avengers, Joss Whedon revamped the Astonishing X-Men series after its original limited edition run from 1995 to 1999. This series introduced the “mutant cure” twist that ended up being the main focus for the 2006 film X Men: The Last Stand. From 2004 to 2013, Astonishing X-Men brought on a host of talented writers to expand the universe into a bunch of interesting arcs from mutant babies in "Xenogenesis" to the return of a fallen superhero in “Ghost.”
