* Though most people just know her as a longtime anti-heroine today, SpiderMan villainess the BlackCat was introduced in a whole convoluted storyline. It involved J. Jonah Jameson, usually unseen in the story proper, slowly losing his mind, Robbie Robertson, his right-hand man, taking on his boss's characteristics, a whole bunch of other threads slowly coming together, and the Black Cat getting in the middle of all this. All plot threads were abruptly dropped when the writer left the series suddenly, causing the story to be hastily rewritten so that the Black Cat is shown to be stealing items out of a twisted love for Spider-Man, who she sees as a substitute father figure. It was eventually revealed many years later that if the storyline had been concluded as it was originally intended to, J. Jonah Jameson, in a deranged fit, would have gunned down the Black Cat.

* Fred's fate in the BadFuture of ''ComicBook/ZombiesChristmasCarol'' is unknown, though given the emphasis on Scrooge's redemption it's likely that even Fred's kindness wasn't enough to stop the rising tide of undead.

*** Apocalypse almost ended up being made into the third Summers sibling but thankfully editorial squashed the plotline. On the other side, as part of the "X-Men: The End" trilogy, Chris Claremont made Gambit the third sibling of sorts in said alternate reality storyline, but with the twist being made that Gambit was a clone-son of Sinister and that Sinister spliced in Cyclops' DNA (his X-gene, specifically) as part of his plot to use Gambit as a host body to kill Apocalypse. Claremont's storyline itself was largely seen as a "TakeThat" against Wizard which heavily pressed in the pages of its magazine for Gambit to be revealed as the third brother (using the dubious logic that they were both 20-something white american males with brown hair, red eyes, and explosive energy powers). It's also a reference to Claremont's [[WhatCouldHaveBeen original plan]] for Gambit to be revealed as another persona of Sinister's intended true identity as an immortal mutant child, the child's version of a "roguish hero" archetype to Sinister's "archvillain."

**** Technically this was resolved, Adam Neramani (X-Treme) is Scott and Alex's Half-Brother, but not a Summers, as he is the son of their mother and D'Ken, and not the child of Christopher Summers (Corsair).
*** Flipside of Adam-X, Corsair's girlfriend among the Starjammers, Hepzibah, was pregnant with his child when Corsair was killed by Vulcan, while Hepzibah has been seen several times since her escaping to Earth and bonding with Warpath, if she did or didn't have the baby and its whereabouts if she did carry it to term have been left unknown.

* If Creator/GerryConway hadn't [[KilledOffForReal dropped Gwen Stacy off a bridge]], this would have been the most famous legacy of his 70s tenure in the Marvel Bullpen. He had an infuriating tendency toward using [[SequelHook sequel hooks]] and [[LeftHanging dangling plot threads]] as resolutions that rendered a lot of his stories unsatisfying. A prime example was the eight-issue arc climaxing in ComicBook/TheMightyThor #203 with the creation of the Young Gods. Every sign pointed toward these characters immediately playing a massive role in the title; instead, they were [[PutOnABus shelved for seven years]].

* One arc of ''ComicBook/{{Revival}}'' has Dana tracking ongoing shipments of reviver flesh outside the quarantine. She finds the butcher receiving it dead, his current stock destroyed, his next clients murdered, and the murderer destroyed, so she closes the case. But to judge from the smugglers' stock and the amount of money they had, the smuggling had been ongoing for some time. Did the butcher have previous clients that are now revivers?
