    1. Thunderstrike
    2. Spider-Man 2099
    3. PAD's Hulk
    4. Thunderbolts
    5. Waid's Captain America run
    6. X-Men 2099
    7. Priest's Black Panther

I had forgotten the 2099 titles were 90s books! One of the great cult classic comic book imprints, and one that is especially popular on these boards.

Priest's Black Panther is deemed by many to be the best T'Challa incarnation of all time. I would have to say its only competition is the Don McGregor run, although I was surprised to discover that I enjoyed Jack Kirby's Panther run, despite the high silliness that was evident. I think I liked it because I was reading the Essential, and having just finished imbibing McGregor's wordy, literary style, I was ready for something completely different, which Kirby's run certainly was.

Priest did excellent work in the late 80s and throughout the 90s, and all of it would be on topic at an Iron Age (1986-2000) Message Board. I would like to spotlight his Conan the King issues 50-55, written in 1989 under the name of Jim Owsley. These would be on topic, and I am glad of that, because I consider those six issues to be among the very best Conan stories ever written in any venue, and I think even Robert E. Howard would have agreed.
