Yea i know But i think it's a good recommendation as most of DCs events, especially the Crisis ones are mainly cosmic based. My thought process was, if you like DCs crisis events, you'll like Marvels cosmic events.
Plus you know, i consider it to be the best event of this century out of both companies.
Failing that i'd recommend Planet Hulk and World War Hulk too. As i think a lot of people are already aware, i'm not a big fan of Civil War and all that, so i wouldn't recommend them to anyone. I think they are overrated mainstream garbage.
I would suggest Captain America, or the Hulk titles. Fantastic Four wouldn't be a bad pick either.
Plus, what the Illuminati did to him was just dickish. It was good to see some of them get SMASHED!!!
I'm more of a DC guy, but I'm something of a dilettante in Marvel affairs (I read Avengers Academy, Hulk, and Invincible Iron Man). My primary point is the somewhat painful admission that it's generally easier to get into Marvel books than DC's because there are recap pages in almost any and every Marvel book. So I'd recommend just grabbing whatever book you're curious about, reading the recap page carefully, and then seeing if you dig the book; either that, or just follow Marvel creators that you like from previous DC work.
Locke & Key, Saga, Thief of Thieves
And, to put the thread back on track - I suggest the Astonishing Spider-Man & Wolverine bimonthly miniseries, OP. The two main characters are written better than in other books featuring the two, and the writer and artist were born to be paired with one another. The story has a cataclysmic kind of feel and you truly don't know what's coming next.
I definitely agree with Annihilation. It got me into Marvel and cosmic comics, which I hated before. It doesn't feature any well-known Marvel heroes, but it is one of the best Marvel comics to come out in recent years. It rebooted the cosmic world of Marvel, and the cosmic events that followed it were good too.
After that, Annihilation and Annihilation Conquest are entertaining modern cosmic events. The first got me back into reading Marvel comics...at least casually.

If you don't mind reading something quite far back, then Infinity Gauntlet is a good read. And if you want to get a grasp on some characters without being overloaded with them, then Secret Wars is a good read.
Good God man! Why are you slapping a monkey.

I hear One More Day is awesome. Total reboot type thing.
