I am a reader of DC superhero TPB's and issues of various non-superhero comics (i.e. Sweet Tooth, Chew, American Vampire, etc.--I tend to like the funkier stuff.) New 52 made it relatively easy to jump into issues of DC superhero stuff as well, and I've been enjoying that, for the most part.
That said, I'd like to dip into Marvel. But just finding out what the best ongoing series are won't do it for me, as I have an OCD-level desire to know "the whole story." So could you fine ladies and gents help me pick up on the Marvel universe with a few ongoing series, but also let me know what I need to catch up on (either through single issues or trades) so I can be fully clued in and up-to-date? Also suggest some other foundational things that may not be part of those series but provides good context for continuity. I've only read Marvel 1602, Morrison's New X-Men Omnibus, Miller's Daredevil (big-time ehhhhh from me), and Spider-Man Yellow.
