Stan Lee expertly blended the trials and tribulations of teenage life with slam bang superhero action in his groundbreaking work on The Amazing Spider-Man and that has been a recipe for successful comics ever since. Marvel has used it well in titles like Nova, New Mutants, and New Warriors. DC's New Teen Titans by Marv Wolfman and George Perez was one of the best examples of the formula. The first 50 issues of that title have stood the test of time, and are still fondly remembered today.
