    Default What are your top 3 Marvel franchises? (and when did you start?)

    For me they would be;

    1. Spider Man
    2. X-Men
    3. Guardians of the Galaxy

    I've been a Spider Man fan since the 90's (I'm not someone who ever uses the term fan to describe myself because...well a lot fanbases are toxic nowadays) however I'm a total nut for anything Spider Man-related. I got my start in the 90s with the Clone Saga and the Animated Series, collected the comics and toys back then grew up a bit and became "too cool" for it so to speak, recently as of this time last year I went on a very expensive nostalgia spree and purchased Spider Man trades, toys, etc.

    X-Men I've loved since the 90's as well, the Saturday morning cartoon (which ran on the now defunct Fox Kids iirc) is what got into the X-Men mythos. I had a very modest collection of X-Men figures from the 90s (I think mainly Sauron and a variation of the dozen or so Wolverine toys that were popular at the time). The early 2000s movies also revamped my interest in the X-Men, as of 2017 I've been collecting X-Men figures as well and have the whole Warlock wave and most of the Juggernaut wave of legends figures.

    Guardians of the Galaxy, I will admit that my enjoyment of the films is what influenced me to branch out further into GOTG beyond the movies; reading the comics and learning about the original team of GOTG and the differences and origins of the current comic heroes versus the MCU versions.

    *The MCU
    *Early Ultimate Marvel (up until it all went to pieces around the time of Loeb's Ultimates 3). Okay, looking it up that was still 8 years, so
    maybe not that early.
    *The X-Men

    And I started at around age 7, with a book about Spider-Man fighting some lizard creature Doc Connors had accidentally created (not the actual Lizard, although he also made an appearance).

    I've been reading comics since the early to mid 70's, when I was about 6 or 7 years old, but the 80's are my favorite era.

    X-Men (including Deadpool)
    Spider-Man
    Fantastic Four

    My first book purchase was Deadpool #1 (1994) "Sins of the Past" by Fabian Nicieza.

    The X-Men were my gateway into comic book heroes and the Fantastic Four & Spider-Man are too iconic to not put on the top franchise list.

    I have been a reader of the X-Men and Spider-Man for about a decade. For Thor, Let's just say that I have been a fan for an awful lot longer.

    Spider-Man and X-Men since the 1990s with the concurrent animated series from that decade, and Avengers since the 2000s.
