I have one issue of Street Poet Ray (Tom Brevoort actually mentioned this in one of his blogs and gave a bit of the history behind the series. Apparantly there was quite a fad of Bronx culture at the time. I think Tom said it was the worst thing he ever worked on, and he wrote Fantastic Force), a few issues of Human Fly...
two issues of Mort the Dead Teenager...
Suburban Jersey Ninja She-devils (by Steve Gerber and apparantly in continuity since they mention the Man-thing's swamp)
eight issues of Crystar
Spider-man: Chaos at Calgary, where he fights the Frightful Four and teaches bike safety (really)
one issue of Royal Roy (I so want this guy to appear in continuity)
the issue of Ren and Stimpy with Spider-man fighting Powdered Toast Man (the first time Dan Slott wrote Spidey, I believe)
and all 50 regular issues, three annuals, two holiday specials, and a spring special of Alf, the greatest licensed comic Marvel produced. It was what got me into comics back when I was 5. Yeesh. Although Marvel doesn't own Alf, he did meet the High Evolutionary and also got an Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Master Edition (the 3-ring binder one) in his last issue by blackmailing Tom DeFalco with dirty pictures.
I don't have it, but I think the holy grail of obscure comics is the X-men at the Texas State Fair.
Delightfully insane. Spidey's efforts to break through Powdered Toast Man's, er, naturally-produced bindings are hysterical.the issue of Ren and Stimpy with Spider-man fighting Powdered Toast Man (the first time Dan Slott wrote Spidey, I believe)
Screw you. (And yes folks, all that stuff is true, and it happened in a Marvel Comic.)and all 50 regular issues, three annuals, two holiday specials, and a spring special of Alf, the greatest licensed comic Marvel produced.

Black Widow and Silver Sable...
Top 10: Hawkguy, GIJoe Cobra, The Massive, Daredevil, Wonder Woman, Fury MAX, The Black Beetle, Batman, Winter Soldier, Suicide Squad, and The Activity.
Mr T and the T Force. A truly horrific comic. It basically consisted of Mr T nearly killing two bit punks, while failing to properly maintain the slum like appartment he was the Super of. Then, after spending many pages beating people half to death, his letters column would talk about the wonders of non violence and how Mr T hoped to show people violence wasn't the answer.
Stare at a schizophrenic jabbering away while beating yourself in the head with an iron bar. Congratulations! You now know what it feels like to read an issue of Mr T and the T Force.

Incomplete collection of both ALF and Team America.
I also have four of the Marvel Treasury Editions, including this classic:
For some really, REALLY odd reason, my aunts gave me a bunch of "Epic" titles when I was 8 yrs. old, like "Terrarists," or "Law Dog." This was some pretty f'ed up crap. Seriously, those titles somewhat traumatized me for a couple of years. Up until a couple of months ago, I still had them, and, well, they were still disturbing.
As for obscure titles, I've always had a predilection for titles that have Shang-Chi, so I have much of Chuck Dixon's "Marvel Knights" run from around '00/'01, the Gulacy/Moench Shang-Chi series from '02/'03, as well as the most recent Heroes For Hire series. Other than that, there's my "Captain America Meets The Asthma" monster one-shot. Probably one of, if not the, earliest comic I have.
"I am a man of peace."
"A man of peace who fights like ten tigers."
...Mine would be the Iron Man/Sub-Mariner one-shot from ~1968 or thereabouts, when the duet books Tales to Astonish and Tales of Suspense were split into four books, and the one-shot was needed to wrap up two leftover half-length stories from each book.
...Of course, Human Fly, Comet Man and Obnoxio were good suggestions as well, although I'd also have suggest Bizarre Adventures #34, which featured the only Howard the Duck story that wasn't written by Steve Gerber that Gerber admitted was "In Canon", that being Steven Grant's take on "It's a Wonderful Life". Obscure, but damn good nevertheless.
