** Spyke is a sort of example. A character with similar powers named Spike appeared in ''Comicbook/XForce'', while a canonical nephew of Storm was introduced in ''Comicbook/BlackPanther''. His name is David Evan Munroe (his middle name is a ShoutOut to Spyke, whose name was Evan), but it hasn't yet been established whether or not he's a mutant. Another Spyke {{Expy}} named Spike appeared in ''Film/XMenTheLastStand''.

Often, these new characters will be added to fill a particular need in the new story, and add some degree of novelty to attract readers/watchers. Frequently, they'll also fill some gap in the current cast, such as adding a female character to an all-male cast, or [[TokenMinority imposing some other element of diversity, be it racial, geographic, or simply personality]]. This can spark new conflicts and adventures that wouldn't otherwise occur under the limitations of the "conventional" cast and series format one of the main points of "expanded universe" fiction to begin with.

* Cheater Gunsmoke was the only criminal on ''WesternAnimation/TheDickTracyShow'' who did not originate from [[ComicStrip/DickTracy the comic strip]]. Obviously there was not much the UPA studio could do with Gunsmoke as he appeared in only two episodes.
