We're in a Golden Age of writers right now. Now, DC probably has a better corp of writers, Marvel isn't that far off: Bendis, BRUBAKER~! (anyone NOT reading his Captain America series should be forced to, at gun point if neccessary..plus he just got started doing Daredevil AND he'll be jumping on Uncanny in a couple of months), Kirkman, Slott (Dude rocks, loving both She-Hulk and Thing). I'm not as huge of Mark Millar as some, but The Ultimates IS an awesome book (his run on Wolverine on the other hand..blah).
Ultimates is a great book if you like quasi-quarterly publications. Ditto for Ultimate Iron Man.
Ultimate FF is the best book going from the U-universe right now. Kirkman's zombie storyline and the Namor story were both super reads.
Daredevil and Captain America are great as well, even though "Bucky Dead" doesn't have the same resonance anymore. BTW, he pops up in the latest issue of Wolverine and we find out that ol' Bucky and Logan are connected by something Bucky did.
Marvel Zombies= good. But it's a mini series. New Avengers is good. Runaways is a fun book. There are a couple other odd good reads at this point, but Marvel has been the straggler behind DC for quite some time, mainly because it tied so much of it's universe to the House of M fiasco. IMHO, it's tough for even the best writers when they have to deal with bad plotlines that must hit their books.
Oh, and I just picked up a Fine- copy of Uncanny X-Men #2 off eBay for less than 1/4 of what it's worth. YAY ME!
