** The series' guest actors sometimes provoke this as well. The most extreme example is probably "The Superlative Seven," which guest-stars a youthful, pre-fame Creator/DonaldSutherland, Charlotte Rampling, and Creator/BrianBlessed all in a single episode!

** During the ''ComicBook/UnderSiege'' arc, in 1986, Ant-Man (Scott Lang) and the Wasp have to fight against the Absorbing Man and Titania. Lang said "We have as much change of stopping those two as [[Creator/StevenSpielberg Spielberg]] had of winning an Oscar!" They did stop them... and Spielberg got an Oscar in 1994 for the ''Film/SchindlersList''.

* UnexpectedCharacter: A group of scientists who call themselves "The Enclave", those who first created ComicBook/AdamWarlock, had a mistery cargo in a plane, and crashed into the water. There is a rescue and cleanup, but there's a cocoon down there with some serious PowerIncontinence. It turns out that the Enclave were just a RedHerring: the being inside the cocoon was a resurrected Jean Grey, who had died years before during ComicBook/TheDarkPhoenixSaga.

** Wasp, though she crosses into IronWoobie: Her dad died, to kick things off, but she didn't let that get her down too much. Then she joined a superhero team only to be regulated to DistressedDamsel roles and ignored due to being the weakest member of the team (she eventually TookALevelInBadass but it too a long time for her to get there). Then her personal chauffeur starts making advances on her until eventually trying to kill her and Hank or to get her money; the chauffeur, it turns out, is Whirlwind, a villain that constantly kicks her ass when they battle, who's since developed an obsessive crush on her. Then she marries Hank, only for him to be in the middle of a psychotic break down that is partially her own fault, eventually resulting in a painful string of events that involve her almost being mind-raped and killed by Ultron, the crazy robot Hank built, when Ultron tries to make himself a wife, Jocasta, based on Jan's brainwaves (complete with Jan being forced to endure some very NightmareFuel ShamefulStrip FanDisservice), getting slapped across the face and knocked to the floor, forever turning her into a poster child for domestic abuse in comics. THEN, she spends the next bit of time recuperating from that and dealing with a messy divorce and, when her and Hank start to patch things up, she's attacked and almost raped by Whirlwind, who's crush has turned him into an obsessed psychopath. Then, after not being allowed to do anything for a while, she's used as a [[spoiler: SacrificialLion]] during ''ComicBook/SecretInvasion''. [[spoiler: During which, she's secretly lost in the Microverse, fighting for her life]].

** 1960s, there is a special comic book character. A black superhero, named "Black Panther". What do you mean that it is not a veiled reference to the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Panther_Party Black Panthers]]? No, really, it is not: Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created the character first. There was even a brief attempt to rename the character as "Black Leopard", to escape from the confusion, but it was short lived. Until the late Eighties, the character was almost always referred to as either 'Panther', 'the Panther' or T'Challa (his name), in order to avoid the implications of the name. According to "Comics Should Be Good", it's [[http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2008/11/27/comic-book-legends-revealed-183/ actually just a coincidence]] that the two have the same name and became prominent at the same time.

* CreatorsPet: Roger Stern ''really'' liked Monica Rambeau, and actively pushed her into the limelight. He repeatedly had other characters talk about how powerful she was, men gushed over her beauty, and she was even made chairman of the Avengers for a time. The fans never quite took to her, but she was never really hated. She did develop a larger fanbase once WarrenEllis made her a member of the ''Series/{{Nextwave}}'' series.

* GrowingTheBeard: When Emma Peel became Steed's partner.

* BestKnownForTheFanservice:
** The series is credited with popularising kinky boots as a sexy fashion statement. Patrick Macnee and Honor Blackman even recorded a song called [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vvjjm8hMdKI "Kinky Boots"]].
** The episode "A Touch of Brimstone" is remembered for featuring Mrs Peel in a sexy leather bustier, even getting censored in America for this reason.
** A now defunct fansite happily listed the episodes "Immortal Clay", "Mr Teddy Bear" and "Castle De'ath" as the ones where Steed goes shirtless.
* DieForOurShip: Tara King gets more ShipTease with Steed than her two predecessors, thoroughly angering those who shipped Steed with Cathy Gale or Emma Peel.
* GrowingTheBeard: When Emma Peel became Steed's partner. Although Cathy Gale was popular, it's the Emma Peel seasons that are most remembered.



* ReplacementScrappy: Tara King. Otherwise averted with Emma Peel, who is more fondly remembered than her predecessor Cathy Gale.
