Welcome to our list of Marvel Character Reading Orders. The reading orders you will find here are different than your standard reading order. Rather than contain a chronological list of every appearance a character has made these lists only contain issues that are important for that characters development or issues that are recommended reading. All the important issues and legendary writer runs are here. Simply choose a character and begin reading. Some of the reading orders provide alternate start points so you have the option of skipping early comics.
The issue counters in the individual character reading orders do not include any events that may be in the reading order. First appearances are marked by the earliest issue the character appeared in, not necessarily there earliest chronological appearance.
