@John Valentine: Some X-Men,  but not all of them... there's too many of them now, it's not really a 'team' anymore.

I agree completely with the Liefeld comment on New Mutants. I will never be able to scrape the Boom-Boom art off my soul! Good list here.

@Gothic Storm: Not just the art.  He took over the plotting (just not the actual scripts), so the direction that the stories went in were his reponsibility too.  I know that it was just a sign of the times, but upon reflection... it was just a lot LOT less fun :( 
 
And the art was pretty weak too ;)

@X-93: @shawn87: This is just my favourite teams.  Obviously I still have a soft spot in my heart for the X-Men.  But as a team, they've been far from favourite for many MANY years now.  The other X-Teams are usually much better.

Do you not like fantastic four? 
I totally agree with the inhumans - i think there great!!!

@fisto77: They're good, but not great.  I've never really found myself desperate for more F4.  But yeah, I like the esoteric Inhumans :)

Wouldn't the Initiative fall in the same category as the X-Men "team" being to large and spread out. Interesting list though good to see that not everyone sticks to the Big names (Avengers, JLA, X-Men and the like).

@Mr.Q: I didn't think of it like that, but you're right.  However, there isn't really a team that covers the first class of new Initiative trainees from the Avengers: Initiative series ;)

It's depressing. When hunting for NM(I) back issues, his are the only ones I can find. But odds are, the points you mentioned are why.

@pixie_child: They usually appear in bargain basement bins.  You can also find them on eBay (although that's not as fun as finding back issues in the shop).

ok its a pretty good list, but im not getting why there isnt a single avengers team on it that contains actual people.

@Violet-Eyed Dragon: Because I don't read the Avengers.  That's why it's a list of MY favourite teams.

ok.  i reccomend reading some of the series though--they are pretty good and match up with the tastes of the series you do like.

Great List - New Mutants, X-Force and some other classic Marvel teams! Initiative is a nice touch, are you reading Avengers Academy?

Thanks, I was late to the Initiative but thoroughly loved it!  I'm enjoying Avengers Academy, so I might add it to the list too (since it seems to be Initiative: The Sequel ;)

Yes. I love the Power Pack. They had a TV series started but I think it was cancelled. They should be used more often. I'm sure they'd be a hit with kids if they had a cartoon series come out.

@HumanX: I recently found out about the live action Pilot they made for Power Pack.  I'll have to hunt it down on YouTube ;) 
 
@notoriousbcb: Which version of X-Force?  Or all of them? :)

Very intersting list. Great choices...one question though...why no Secret Six?
