** It was meant to be a backdoor pilot for an X-Men show that never got off the ground, but strangely enough, [[WolverinePublicity did not include Wolverine]]. It would've had Comicbook/{{Cyclops}}, {{Storm}}, Kitty Pryde, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Thunderbird and MsMarvel ([[AdaptationNameChange renamed]] "Lady Lightning") as [[HighSchoolAU teenagers attending a public high school]] rather than the Xavier Institute.

* The final arc of ''Comicbook/UltimateSpiderMan'' featured a team-up between Spidey (Miles), Comicbook/CloakAndDagger, SpiderWoman, and Bombshell. This same group appeared in the ''[[Comicbook/CataclysmTheUltimatesLastStand Cataclysm]]: Ultimate Spider-Man'' mini-series before being spun-off in their own book as the ''All-New [[TheUltimates Ultimates]]''.

** Comicbook/GhostRider appeared in an episode as a backdoor pilot for his own cartoon on UPN, which was not picked up. This had the effect of preventing the character from appearing in ''SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'', as the Fox execs did not want to promote a character who was going to be used by a rival network.

* The "Doof 101" episode of ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' is so obviously this, with all the focus on Doof, Vanessa and Perry and only a brief glimpse of the title characters, plus the fact that it had its own theme song, no running gags, and an inexplicable subplot about talking bugs.

* The current ''Comicbook/{{Nova}}'' volume had a story arc where the character met Justice and Speedball, two of the washed-up former members of the New Warriors. Around the same time, ''Comicbook/SuperiorSpiderMan Team-Up'' featured an arc where Otto encountered a new heroine named Sun Girl. The characters involved soon met and teamed up for the Comicbook/MarvelNOW relaunch of ''ComicBook/NewWarriors''.

** SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadman}} would have headlined #105, as a sales pitch to get him an eponymous series. No such luck until 1985.

* Creator/MarvelComics, at the start of the [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]], had what are now called "tryouts". For instance, one [[Comicbook/FantasticFour Human Torch]] story featured a Comicbook/CaptainAmerica impostor and asked the readers if they wanted to bring back the real Captain America. On the other hand, the [[FanDumb fevered imagination of fans]] (and/or the greed of comic book speculators) has been prone to see tryouts in Marvel's pre-superhero era even when links between the precursor and later characters are tenuous at best (e.g., a '50s monster character who happened to be called "Hulk" and was renamed Xemnu the Titan once the ComicBook/IncredibleHulk showed up to avoid confusion).

** {{OSS}} headlined issue #104 (September, 1978), with stories set in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII and featuring various agents. Possibly a sales pitch for a war-themed series, but nothing came of it. ''Showcase'' itself was cancelled at this point, though there were two more issues awaiting publication. Their material became available later through other formats.
