90s era Marvel comics have a reputation. The guys who founded Image Comics were cutting their teeth there, and the characters they worked on seemed to take on many of the sorts of things fans today bemoan but which must have been selling back then, hence the reason for so many of them. They were massive guys with guns, pouches, and bad-ass names and powers. Bishop. Cable. Ghost Rider. X-Force. Venom. I think the Punisher had three separate titles going at one point. Todd McFarlane’s Spider-Man series showed the Hobgoblin going nuts, thinking he was a real goblin, finding religion, and ripping his own face off.
Then there was Sleepwalker.
