I would like to include Art Adams but his limited output is a negative for me.

I picked Alan Davis because he brought new facets to the franchise. Yes, he helped define Kitty for a generation but he also re-designed and re-defined Captain Britain equally as well. In fact, in catching up on his X-work and particularly Excalibur, I think his collaboration with Claremont is on par with the Claremont/Bryne pairing. With Excalibur, the pair introduced more humor, a new tone and a different style that allowed for more types of genres to be explored for the characters that expanded the overall franchise. His renditions of X-characters, while perhaps not as ground-breaking as say, Cockrum or even Lee, helped define a certain look for them for nearly a decade or more.

I probably give a little too much emphasis to artists whose styles I enjoy as opposed to creating designs....

What about Sal Buscema. Wasn’t he the original artist on Wolverine? Any innovative designs from that run that have stuck?

Nope, it was his brother John Buscema who worked on Wolverine. Sal did some great artwork and designs for the Avengers though, including the original Squadron Sinister, and a decent run on Spider-man too.
