Superior Spider-Man - Venom - Captain Marvel
Wolverine isn't popular because he appears in a lot of books. Wolverine appears in a lot of books because he is popular. If you look at his early run in X-Men. He wasn't shilled or anything, and didn't make guest appearances everywhere. In fact, he was basically the Guy Gardner of the X-Men. The jerk character that was always being shut down by the other characters. But he had a great design, cool powers and his personality was so much more vibrant than the vanilla 05 that he became something bigger. Some characters simply have the "IT" factor and some don't. Spider-Man was simply a throwaway story Stan always wanted to tell attached to last issue of a cancelled title. Stan never expected anything to come from it.
Look at Nova, Speedball and Darkhawk. All are basically the Spider-Man character of their respective decades, but ultimately they never quite clicked the way Spidey did. (Nova at least had some modest success.)
I don't only follow A-listers, but I'm realistic enough to know why the C listers I like aren't deserving of the spotlight. You either have it or you don't.
I had a letter printed once in Amazing Spider-Man #604!
Before Marvel NOW!, my pull list was 14 Marvel books. Now, it's more like 5 Marvel, 7 DC, and a few indies.
Holding out for a Peter/Miles team up.
