** [[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.

* Gwenpool began life as part of a variant cover gimmick that each featured Gwen Stacy dressed as a different Marvel hero (ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, Comicbook/IronMan, [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]], etc..) The character's design proved so popular with cosplayers that Marvel brought her into their official canon as part of the ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel universe -- first appearing in a ''Howard The Duck'' backup story, she then proceeded to headline a holiday special, and now she's getting her [[Comicbook/TheUnbelievableGwenpool own ongoing series]].

to:

* 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]].

** ComicBook/HarleyQuinn was a one-shot Joker minion from the TV show who was drawn only because they wanted a girl-coming-out-of-the-cake gag. Joker minions have an average lifespan of less than a single episode, but Harley became big enough to not only jump to the comics, but get her own self-titled series as well.

* From ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'', Oroku Saki, aka The Shredder, was originally a one-time villain. However, he grew popular with the comic's readers. The rest is history.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/AfterlifeWithArchie'':
** Smithers, the Lodges' Butler, who gets a DayInTheLimeLight narrating the fifth issue and [[spoiler:backs Archie up on escaping Lodge Manor before the zombies overrun them.]]
** Ginger, a rarely used side character, and Nancy, who has few appearances without her boyfriend Chuck, get quite a few scenes on their own before they join the main group. [[spoiler:They're also secretly a couple.]]
** Betty's obscure older sister, Polly, gets a fair amount of screentime in flashbacks.
* ''ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms'':
** Despite being made a big deal of in early episodes of ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'', Synergy was mostly treated as a plot-device and rarely even appeared in her holographic form. In the comics there is ''much'' more of an effort to present her as a character and as family to The Holograms.
** Craig appeared in under five episodes of the cartoon and is mostly treated as "Stormer's brother". In the comics he appears early on and it isn't even revealed he is Stormer's older brother until several issues in. They put more emphasis on his romance with Aja.
** Clash is the Misfits groupie in the cartoon but only appears in a select number of episodes. In the comics she appears in almost every issue they do.

* The ComicBook/BlackWidow was just a supporting character for many years, not a full Avenger (with good reason -- she started out as a Russian spy, and this was the UsefulNotes/ColdWar). She's now been an Avenger long enough that it's hard to think of her otherwise, and adaptations reflect this. In ''WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble'' she's one of the main cast, and the movie ''Film/TheAvengers'' bumps her all the way up to founding member!
** Similarly with ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}}, who started out as a reluctant Iron Man villain, only to become the Avenger with the second most appearances on the team (behind only Captain America), founding leader of their West Coast branch, headliner of the Solo Avengers spotlight anthology, and present in every animated, and now live action, adaptation of the team.

* 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/CaptainAmerica film, and worked for the agency which would become SHIELD, 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.
