* ''ComicBook/XMen'' and ''ComicBook/DoomPatrol'' are both comics about teams of superpowered misfits led by a wheelchair-bound genius. They debuted within months of each other.
* ComicBook/SwampThing and ComicBook/ManThing are both hideous but fundamentally good muck-monsters created when a male scientist is killed in a swamp and dosed with his experimental formula. They debuted within months of each other.
** Both of them have a strong similarity to an earlier character from ''Airboy'' comics, called the Heap.
* Similarly, ComicStrip/{{Dennis The Menace|US}} was created simultaneously with a [[ComicStrip/DennisTheMenaceUK British character]] [[NamesTheSame of the same name]] (both were first published around March 12, 1951), but with a vastly divergent appearance and personality.
