X-Statix was awesome too. I think if we could have had more issues run, it would def be on more people's radar. That was really excellent. Thank you Peter Milligan and Michael Allred.
I have to agree; with the tone of WWII and the times, this Ross piece just belts out a home run for the JSA.
Thanks for posting it. Really beautiful.
In no particular order:
Legion of Super Heroes
Justice League of America
League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (streching the super hero definition?)
Original / New X-Men
Micronauts (really streching it here but I dig 'em)
Y'know, Kurt, I actually thought you'd get a kick out of seeing the SCPA in my list...
Shoot. Y'know who I left out?
Defenders of the Earth!
This was, when I was young, the only group I could actually imagine myself as a part of, instead of appreciating from a distance. It probably deserves about #5 or so on my list, knocking everything else down by one. (Goodbye, old #10, whoever you were!)
Anyway, it is cool for you to acquire acrimony of crumbling time on blast this website.

Not sure about Allred: his stuff looks pretty nice, but at the same time has always struck me as kind of a one-note schtick. But I haven't really given it a chance by reading any of his solo work.

The Neopolis PD
Birds Of Prey (most any run pre-DCnu)
Nextwave: Agents Of H.A.T.E.

Somebody sell me on Allred: what should I be looking at to see him at his best? I'd prefer something of his own rather than his version of a Marvel or DC character or series.
Speaking of new versions of old teams, I was half-minded to take a chance on Hickman's Avengers when it comes out in trade, but I'm starting to see some of the same things I disliked about what I read and saw in previews of his Fantastic Four, so I'm not so sure now. Still might try one of his solo series, though: Pax Romana, Nightly News or Manhattan Project.
