My favorite is Paul Tobin's run on Marvel Adventures Spider-Man, the all-ages reboot that could not give less of a shit about recreating the classic status quo or retreading famous stories. I don't think Harry Osborn or Mary Jane ever even showed up. Peter's girlfriend was a cute mutant girl named Chat who could talk to animals, and Emma Frost was a regular recurring character. One of the reasons the trailer for Spider-man Homecoming hooked me so good was it reminded me of Marvel Adventures' willingness to just do its own thing. I wish it would get a reprint in big-boy sized trades (the downside to Marvel Adventures is that the trades were all supermarket digest-sized)
