** Initially, much like previous Creator/MarvelComics toy tie-ins ''ComicBook/ROMSpaceKnight'' and ''Franchise/{{Micronauts}}'', ''The Transformers'' was set in the Marvel Universe proper, with ComicBook/SpiderMan guest-starring in issue 3 (along with cameos by [[ComicBook/NickFury Nick Fury and Dum-Dum Dugan]], and a thinly-veiled reference to ''another'' Marvel-licensced character, [[ComicBook/GodzillaKingOfTheMonsters Godzilla]][[note]]Marvel no longer had the license by then so he wasn't referred to by name[[/note]]), and the Dinobots fighting Shockwave in the Savage Land in issue 4. But after having Circuit Breaker cameo in ''ComicBook/SecretWarsII'' (for [[ExecutiveMeddling rights issues]]) and sending Ratchet to the Savage Land to fish the Dinobots out of a tar pit in issue 8, the Transformers' connection to Earth-616 was dropped.

* In early issues of Marvel's ''Franchise/{{Micronauts}}'' series, Commander Arcturus Rann seemed to be a less refined individual. He used slang, mild swear words, and occasionally uttered sexist comments toward Marionette. In this, he was much like Han Solo from ''Franchise/StarWars''. This was toned down immediately after the first three issues, and he started acting like a straight-laced hero.

* In the second issue of Marvel's ''Franchise/StarWars'', the scene between Han Solo and Jabba the Hutt (or Hut here) is included, but Jabba looks absolutely nothing like the familiar character as seen in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''.

* In the second issue of Marvel's ''Franchise/StarWars'', the scene between Han Solo and Jabba the Hutt (or Hut here) is included, but Jabba looks absolutely nothing like the familiar character as seen in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''. The character depicted is one of the background aliens from the Cantina scene, who was eventually given the name Mosep Binneed and, as a DiscontinuityNod, was revealed to be one of Jabba's executive staff.

* Before ''Comicbook/YoungAvengers'' made her a star, Miss Comicbook/AmericaChavez debuted in an obscure mini-series called ''Vengeance''. She was originally only 15-years-old and didn't have the power to create portals, and there was no indication that she was from another dimension. Perhaps most jarringly, America wore a (very {{Stripperific}}) costume, despite ''Young Avengers'' later establishing that she prefers CivvieSpandex because she thinks costumes are stupid.

* ''{{Comicbook/Cable}}'' started out using a lot of strange idioms (NOT FutureSlang) which suggested that he spoke with a British accent.

* ''Ultimate Marvel Team-Up'' was done very early in the life of the [[UltimateMarvel Ultimate universe.]] As a result, a lot of characters like Hulk and ComicBook/IronMan appeared before they were given headlining roles in ''ComicBook/TheUltimates'' and are noticeably different from what would come.

** When Tiberius Stone was first introduced in ''Comicbook/IronMan'', he was handsome, athletic, fashionable, and blond. When he joined the cast of ''Amazing Spider-Man'' during Creator/DanSlott's run, he was redesigned to have darker hair, a scrawny build, and a nerdy fashion sense.

* In the first few isues of ''ComicBook/XMen'', mutants weren't hated and feared, the X-Men were treated as celebrities (the second issue has Angel meet a bunch of fangirls), they had an official government liasion (Fred Duncan), Beast was DumbMuscle, Iceman was a JerkAss (mission briefing would sometimes lead to him attacking the rest of the team) and Jean's telekinesis was for some reason called teleportation, even in the second issue, in which they fought an actual teleporter. Xavier didn't hesitate to hit people who knew too much with LaserGuidedAmnesia, either. Also, ComicBook/{{Magneto}}, in contrast to his contemporary portrayal as a WellIntentionedExtremist, was a straightforward bad guy without any redeeming features. He also had psychic powers that were nearly a match for Charles Xavier's, including AstralProjection.

* Bobbi Morse didn't become Comicbook/{{Mockingbird}} until about 9 years after she was created. When she first appeared, she was actually a scientist who usually showed up in stories featuring characters like Ka-Zar and Comicbook/ManThing. This is {{Lampshaded}} in the first issue of ''The Unstoppable Wasp'', where Bobbi says that nobody ever remembers all the stuff she did before she became a costumed superhero.
