Marvel Comics puts out a load of great comics, but it can be hard to figure out which ones fit your tastes or feature the heroes you care to read about. We've got you covered. Check out the list of our favorite Marvel books to learn what they're about and why they're so awesome.

What it’s about: A pack of cute little teleporting blue elves opened up a portal in the Jean Grey School, sending Wolverine, Storm, Beast, Northstar, Firestar, and Iceman to another dimension that may or may not be Heaven. They encounter a red demon pirate named Azazel who wants to plunder the souls of heaven to gain power, but a fuzzy blue elf known as Nightcrawler -- son of Azazel and X-Man who tragically died years ago -- shows up to save his old friends. Yeah, they’re probably in Heaven. So naturally, half the team winds up in Hell.

Why it’s awesome: Nightcrawler is back! Well, sort of. As things stand as of this writing, the team is still trapped in Heaven and Hell, but we’ll go ahead and assume they’ll eventually escape and that Nightcrawler will come back with them to the land of the living.

This title has a fun cast of awesome mutants on a crazy adventure into the unknown. The comic can be read without having to know much of anything about the X-Men, so it’s a great jumping-on point for anyone who needs more mutants in their life. Plus, artist Ed McGuinness was born to draw fight scenes atop the masts of a pirate ship, so your eyes are in for quite the adventure, too.

What it’s about: You may know her as Natasha Romanoff or simply Scarlett Johansson in the Avengers movie. The Black Widow has a mysterious past where the only thing known for certain is that it contains a whole lot of blood, murder, and assassination. This series shows her on a quest to repent for her past by doing good deeds using her skills in subterfuge, manipulation, and martial arts. Just because she’s trying to do good now doesn’t mean that no one is going to get hurt.

Why it’s awesome: Marvel’s premiere super spy has had us intrigued for a long time, and now we get a peek at what makes her tick. Writer Nathan Edmondson is known for writing fast-paced, hard-hitting stories that put the danger and mystery front and center. This is a brand new series, but we were over the moon for the debut issue and can’t wait to see where it goes next. With artist Phil Noto on board, it’s a safe bet that everything we do see will be gorgeously rendered, whether it be Natasha meeting for details on her next mission or her kicking the snot out of some evil goons.
