* ComicBook/PeggyCarter in ''ComicBook/CaptainAmerica'' was introduced as a flashback character and LoveInterest in WWII to link the character to her niece ([[{{Retcon}} originally sister]]), [[{{Comicbook/Agent13}} Sharon Carter]]. Recently, the character got a significant role in the ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger film, and worked for the agency which would become S.H.I.E.L.D., her past achievements are moving the storyline to the second series of ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'', and in 2015, [[Series/AgentCarter she got her own television series!]] Not too shabby.

** Bolivar Trask, creator of the Sentinels. In the comicverse, he dies in the three-parter that introduces them, in a HeroicSacrifice once they get out of control. His son and his nephew also tried their hand at it, but also didn't stick around. Despite ''X-Men'''s love of BackFromTheDead, Bolivar took forty-three years to get there. He finally came back from the dead in the main MarvelUniverse in ''ComicBook/XForce'' v3 #6. In the intervening years however? In the [[WesternAnimation/XMen 1990s animated series]], he's a {{Recurr|ingCharacter}}er you can expect to see in many a Sentinel story, on the run from his own creations. In ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution,'' he's arrested after the initial (unauthorized in this version) Sentinel incident, but kept around by SHIELD to design more once Apocalypse comes onto the scene. Had the series continued past the Apocalypse arc, we'd no doubt have seen a lot more of him and his wayward HumongousMecha children. He's got an expanded, recurring role in UltimateMarvel as well.

* ''ComicBook/TheTransformersTillAllAreOne'': Gives Blast-Off of the Combaticons a central role. While the Combaticons are one of the few Combiner Teams to avert TheDividual Often it was Onslaught, Swindle, or even Brawl who got the character-focus. In the IDW books alone Blast-Off spent most of his time as a background character and was absent from a few of the Combaticon's more important arcs. Here he's the most fleshed out of the Combaticons as it's his machinations that kick off a good deal of the plot and his conscience that prevents more deaths from happening.

* Comicbook/SquirrelGirl was originally a one-shot character created for a gag story where she teamed up with Comicbook/IronMan to fight DoctorDoom. She went close to ''a decade'' without appearing again until she got revived in 2005, and has since gained enough popularlarity to become an [[Comicbook/NewAvengers2015 Avenger]] and get her own [[Comicbook/UnbeatableSquirrelGirl ongoing series]].

** In the [[ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesMirage original Mirage comics]] Chet was the name given to the turtles' original owner, whose panel time can be counted on one hand. In the [[ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesIDW IDW comics]], however, he is now one of Stockgen's head scientists, and April's supervisor.

* Parodied in the very first issue of ''[[Creator/BongoComics Bartman #1]]'' during the scene where [[ComicBook/TheSimpsons Bart Simpson]], Milhouse Van Houten, and Martin Prince all meet in the comic-book shop. Bart points out one comics panel (unseen to the reader) featuring a street scene with a random pedestrian in the background. Bart explains that the writers plan to kill this guy off in the next issue and then [[JokerImmunity bring him back to life]] as a supervillain known as [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking "The Jaywalker"]]!

* Likewise, James "Rhodey" Rhodes and Carol Danvers were originally just supporting characters in the respective books they appeared in (Rhodey was Comicbook/IronMan's BlackBestFriend and Carol was [[Comicbook/CaptainMarVell Captain Marvel]]'s love interest). They eventually became popular enough that they were spun off as superheroes in their own rights, with Rhodey becoming Comicbook/WarMachine and Carol becoming Comicbook/MsMarvel (and later, the new Captain Marvel).

** The Riddler and The Penguin made more frequent appearances, but were still, at best, recurrent characters. Today, they are ''regular cast members''. The Penguin is now an unshakable Gotham crime boss; Two-Face, the Riddler, and ''Man-Bat'' have all Ascended and [[HeelRevolvingDoor regularly bounce back and forth between "villain" and "dubious ally" status]].

** [[ComicBook/TwoFace Two-Face]] appeared perhaps three times in the GoldenAge, and was unused for roughly ''twenty years'' before his Bronze Age revival; revival. This is, however, a somewhat downplayed example; the character's ''visual'' was popular enough that there were several stories with "impostor" Two-Faces [[http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2009/08/27/comic-book-legends-revealed-222/ published]] over the '40s and '50s, and the character's Golden Age debut was delivered to future generations in several reprint issues.
