So, if that sounds like you, I think you'd really enjoy Powers. They're pretty slow at publishing the trades, but there are currently twelve great volumes for you to enjoy.
Powers is a gritty take on superheroes with a crime noir spin. With writing by Bendis and fantastic art by Oeming, it's probably my favorite series out there right now. The story follows Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim, two regular (sort of) cops tasked with dealing with the city's superpowered criminals. Unlike most superhero series, Powers has a continuing plot with characters that change and grow as the series develops, so don't pass it up just because you saw the word "superhero"!

Ground Zero is a bit more character-examination and introspective, but Red Hulk is just straight up action and punching.

I would like to say that I have been keeping up with Spider-Man since the Back in Black, and I've been enjoying it so far. Can't wait to see how American Son will resolve and what the title has in store once MJ comes back. Not to sound like I'm disregarding your recommendation, but would you know of any good trades? I've read Spider-Man: Blue and Reign (love them both, too).

I'm half-way through the book, and I 100% recommend this to anyone. It's Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale. Nuff said.
