*** It seems that "Gwen Stacy in alternate roles" have taken off to the point where there's going to be a Christmas-based one-shot featuring "Gwenpool", a Gwen Stacy who became SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} (though, thankfully, she doesn't look like she's suffering from the cancer-ridden HealingFactor normal Deadpool has), who appeared in a set of variant covers with Gwen in various roles. [[http://www.comicbookresources.com/article/marvel-launches-gwenpool-ongoing-from-hastings-gurihiru And now she's also getting an ongoing series!]]

** Venom: the black suit and Eddie Brock is also quite popular as well as Carnage.
** Toxin is also quite popular a pity that Patrick Mullgan died and that Toxin is now bonbed to Eddie Brock.

Carnage. WordOfGod is that Eddie Brock was originally slated to die after a number of issues, with the Venom symbiote bouncing around to other characters. Eddie proved so popular that he kept the symbiote much longer than planned and has stayed alive and revamped to be more of an AntiHero, with Carnage created specifically to fill the "evil symbiote" role originally planned for Venom.
** Toxin is also quite popular popular; a pity that Patrick Mullgan died and that Toxin is now bonbed to Eddie Brock.

** Similarly we have the third Batgirl, Cassandra Cain. Despite her origins as a ReplacementScrappy, she [[ComicBook/{{Batgirl2000}} had her own series]] and built up a sizable fanbase. Since the New 52 she hasn't been seen at all.

** Karn the only good member of the Inheritors that is actually liked by fans largely for his tragic backstory, fun design, and especially for betraying the other Inheritors.
** Ben Reliy and Kaine as the Scarlet Spiders.
** A lot of the new supporting cast members introduced by Dan Slott but especially Max Modell (for being a great Smart Guy for the Spiderfamily) and Anna Maria Marconi (for being really nice and her dwarfism being treated with impeccable good taste.
** Sophia Sanduval from the marvel Adventure Spider-Man.Generally down to earth, sweet, supportive of Peter/Spidey and a generally likable and entertaining companion a lot of people consider her one of Peter's best love interests third only to Mary Jane and Black Cat. So much so that when the series was eventually cancelled the biggest lament was that there would be no more Chat.

Spider.
*** Kaine as the eventual and deeply reluctant successor to that name, who was RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap by Chris Yost, whose ''ComicBook/ScarletSpider'' series became a cult hit thanks to its fun cast (including {{Adorkable}} BreakOutCharacter Aracely) and Kaine trying to be a hero while acting in some of the most irresponsible ways possible and dealing with the Other and the various totemic aspects of his powers that Peter had to handle in the early 2000's. While it was cancelled, Yost took Kaine and Aracely and made them the centrepiece of his ''ComicBook/NewWarriors'' reboot. And while ''that'' was cancelled, Kaine then starred in ''ComicBook/SpiderVerse'', before a Scarlet Spider who is almost certainly him (he has the same costume, same powers and same [[GoodIsNotNice attitude]]) started starring in ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan''. Not bad for a character who was mostly dismissed as one of the worst parts of the trainwreck that was the Clone Saga.

* Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Comicbook/MsMarvel, was originally created as a DistaffCounterpart to Comicbook/CaptainMarVell, and even worse, 'the woman whose power got stolen by [[ComicBook/XMen Rogue]]' (who is actually more popular). However, she has actually made quite a name for herself and has a reasonably sized fan following. Which is seriously impressive, because usually female clones of popular male superheroes tend to be lame, pointless {{Flat Character}}s, but Ms. Marvel has turned out to be really awesome and even outshone her original. She was included in both ''VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance'' games as a playable character, and many players agreed that she was one of the best characters. She also appears in several other shows such as ''WesternAnimation/TheSuperHeroSquadShow'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'', and comic-wise, she shapes up to be one of the more important heroines of the Marvel Universe (even going so far as becoming the AlternateCompanyEquivalent of DC's iconic Franchise/WonderWoman). In July 2012, she became the [[LegacyCharacter new Captain Marvel]].
** Then, we have the ''other'' Ms. Marvel, [[ComicBook/MsMarvel2014 Kamala Khan.]] Teenager? Check. Minority? Check. Taking up the title of an abandoned identity? Check. No major connection to the previous character? Double check. Being pushed for some sort of initiative? The whole building up the Inhumans bit - Check there. Had this been the 90s, there would have been a major uproar and demands for Carol to return to her old name. However, Kamala, who is pretty much OneOfUs and a sweet and lovable girl, won people over instantly with her crazy adventures and out-and-out [[KnightsWhoSaySquee squeeing over seeing her heroes]]. Her popularity exploded to the point where, not only is she part of the Avengers in the ''ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel'' initiative, but she'll also show up in ''WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble'' and ''[[VideoGame/LegoAdaptationGame Lego Marvel's Avengers]]''

* The success of the ''Film/{{Deadpool}}'' movie has not only made interest in the character explode, but Domino's as well; fans are practically ''begging'' for her to be in a possible sequel. Just go to DeviantArt and put her name into the search engine to see as many hits recently as the X-Ladies.

** Wolverine's [[OppositeSexClone female clone]]/daughter figure ''[[ComicBook/{{X23}} Laura Kinney, aka X-23]]'' has taken off in a similar manner to her adoptive father. Originally a CanonImmigrant from ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'', her popularity was helped by the fact that most of her appearances were in [[CreatorsPet books written by her creators]] Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle. However, it was Marjorie Liu's take on the character in her own solo series that really made her popularity take off. Nowadays she's taken up her father's blue and yellow's as the ''[[ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel All-New Wolverine]]''.
