** With Phase 3, they're introducing ComicBook/BlackPanther and Spider-Man in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' before spinning them off into their own movies. They've also introduced the concept of ComicBook/TheInhumans in ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' to set up their movie as well.
** A big criticism of ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' is that significant chunks of the movie rather blatantly existed to set up ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', ''Film/ThorRagnarok'', ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'' and the above-mentioned ''Black Panther'' movie.

** Marvel would revive ''Amazing Fantasy'' in the 2000s; no series was launched directly from it, but Araña would eventually get her own title as Spider-Girl.
** More successful than her was probably Amadeus Cho, who co-starred in ''ComicBook/TheIncredibleHercules''.

** The GrandFinale BigDamnMovie "Underfist" was very obviously trying to phase out the titular trio to cast focus on the otherwise minor characters that composed Underfist, but it never got off the ground, allegedly due to being ScrewedByTheNetwork, which didn't air the special again for years afterward.

It never got off the ground, allegedly due to being ScrewedByTheNetwork, which didn't air the special again for years afterward.

** Firehair debuted in #85 (September, 1969). He also headlined issues #86-87 (November-December, 1969). Firehair was a white boy RaisedByNatives, named for his [[RedHeadedHero Red Hair]]. As an infant in the Old West, Firehair experienced the violent death of his parents at the hands of the Blackfoot tribe of Native Americans. But the leader of the tribe decided to raise the boy as his own son. As a young adult, Firehair finds himself with all the supreme fighting skills of the MightyWhitey, but none of the respect. His own tribe despises him because of his looks, while the White Man sees his as a strange-looking [[TheSavageIndian Savage Indian]]. So he starts WalkingTheEarth, trying to find a place which will truly accept him, and saving some lives in the process. According to his origin story, a shaman predicted that his destiny will be to be constantly despised by both his own people and by anyone he tried to help. The concept did not sell well enough and Firehair went straight to ComicBookLimbo. He was revived in 1971, when he briefly became the second feature of the ''ComicBook/{{Tomahawk}}'' series.
