Another vote for Powers. It consistently ranks at or near the bottom of my reading stack. (I start off with the unknown and known-OK-but-nothing-special titles and work upward (expected quality)/downward (stack position), saving the best for last. There's nothing worse than ending a session of comics reading with a disappointment. FWIW, titles that have consistently stayed at or near the save-the-best-for-last/bottom-of-the-stack position in the last few years have included Powers, Mice Templar,Secret Warriors, Brubaker's Captain America, Gail's BoP, and Captain Britain.)
Since I don't buy Marvel books new, I haven't read a lot of his work (I did pick up "House of M" trade for $5 at Dragon*con last year and thought it was an interesting take, but didnt' blow my socks off).
I have read a lot of his early stuff, and one of my favorite Black and White books from way back when was AKA: Goldfish (Caliber comics baby!), even if I did have an awful time finding issues, since Third Planet comics in Houston didn't stock everything B&W at the time.
Also a big fan of "Jinx" (but again, as a spin off of "Goldfish" that kinda makes sense).
I enjoyed Powers, but dropped it when it moved to being published by Marvel.
and I have "Fortune and Glory" sitting around somewhere (everything got buried in the move) waiting until I have free time (HA) to sit and play catch up on all my comics.

I've also read some of his avengers stuff here and there and enjoyed it for the most part. Not as good as or as consistent as USM, but still pretty good, particularly mighty, which had the added bonus of having Ms. Marvel.
I love his New Avengers stuff. He really sucked me back into that part of the Marvel U when he launched that title.
And yes, Fortune and Glory is utterly awesome.
Torso, followed by Alias. There's just an honesty in them that draws me, and since he was working with Andreyko on Torso Bendis' dialogue habits are toned down.
What can I say that hasn't been said? Love Daredevil, Avengers, Alias...a scene that really sticks out in my mind is when Jessica Jones recalls what she said to "Rick Jones", confessing how she never felt she fit in and she just couldn't be a hero. She thought she found someone she could confide in, someone who understood...it was heartbreaking.
I really like the idea that just because you're granted super powers it doesn't mean you know how to be a super hero. So many origin stories have the hero jump right into it and save the day. It's tragic when you realize that's just not who you are.
I liked Powers. I also liked Ultimate Spider-Man right up until the rest of the Ultimate universe crashed in and ruined everything.
