This year, True Believers were busy reading! Some of our members’ top favorites? Jeff the Land Shark’s Infinity series IT’S JEFF delighted readers of all ages, classic run DAREDEVIL (1964) captivated fans of the Man Without Fear, and KANG THE CONQUERER (2021) offered a ground floor origin on the Master of Time.

TOP READ SERIES

	mu22_editorial-milestones-01

A staff and fan-favorite, defining Spidey run ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN (2000) can’t be missed. Peter Parker gets a revamped origin in this powerful series, chronicling his first days as the radioactive Spider-Man.

MOST READ HERO

Neighborhood Wall-Crawler. Spider-clone Ben Reilly nearly killed his copy during the events of “Beyond,” Tombstone also went in for a final blow, and Peter faced judgment on the heaviest moment of his life during an A.X.E.: JUDGMENT DAY tie-in. And just wait for what’s in store next year!

MOST READ VILLAIN

Or, if you don’t like the term “villain,” Lethal Protector works too. Venom ruled for baddies this year, and his new ongoing from Al Ewing and horror maestro Ram V. made for a reader’s favorite each month. Start the mind-bending tale of symbiosis in VENOM (2021) #1!

MOST READ TEAM

mu22_editorial-milestones-04

The Krakoan Age continues to pull strong favor from our readers, including the X-Men’s latest team book, X-MEN (2021)! If you haven’t tried either series yet, IMMORTAL X-MEN (2022) and X-MEN RED (2022) were this year’s other fan-favorites. Catch up on the current X-lineup “Destiny of X” now!

MOST READ EVENT

Our readers love a classic! The Superhuman Civil War starring Iron Man and Captain America—plus their opposing sides—makes an ideal entry point for those seeking blockbuster-style action. Read the event in suggested reading order!

TOP READ INFINITY SERIES

mu22_editorial-milestones-06.

Mutantkind’s weekly anthology series! Exploring new corners of Krakoa—and its many citizens—Infinity Comics’ X-MEN UNLIMITED offers new stories every single Monday. Upcoming arc “X-Men: Green” will pick up with Nature Girl’s crusade against the human world, while self-contained stories like “X-Friends” take on the slice-of-life (in space). And recently, storyline “A World Without X” revisited the Age of Apocalypse—this time with Moira MacTaggert as a key player!
