    Default Interesting characters created in the 70's

    My wife and I went to a 70's tribute at the philharmonic and it got me to thinking about the diversity that came out of the 70's.

    What cool characters can you think of that debuted in the 70's ?

    I agree with the rest of your list, though. And I'd add:

    Betsy Braddock
    Michael Morbius
    Union Jack
    Star-Lord
    Valkyrie
    Deathlok
    Squadron Supreme
    Man-Thing
    Jack of Hearts
    Ant Man II
    Spider-Woman
    Kamandi
    The Huntress (Helena Wayne)
    Steel the Indestructible Man
    Shade the Changing Man

    Two other favourites of mine, Falcon and Nighthawk, missed out by a few months, both debuting late in 1969.

    Actually, if we're venturing outside Marvel and DC, I'd also add:

    Judge Dredd
    Ro-Busters
    Sam Slade, Robo-Hunter
    Strontium Dog
    (all of the above from either 2000AD or its sister title, Star-Lord, obviously)

    plus:

    Luther Arkwright
    Axel Pressbutton
    E-Man

    Many of my favorite characters were created in the 70's. Most of them, even. Several have already been mentioned, but here are three of my favorites:

    Warlord
    Jonah Hex
    The Unknown Soldier (don't believe the lies about OOAW #168)
    At last, Boy Comics finally gets its own website!

    And other cast members: Martin Stein, Gregory Reed, Johnny Nevada, Steve Lombard, Captain Strong, Kirk Langstrom, Wildfire, Dawnstar, Abigail Arcane, Tara of Skartaris, Machiste, Shakira (Travis Morgan's "cat"), Golden Glider, the Bronze Tiger, Ben Boxer, Oberon, Shilo Norman, Vartox, Jason Bard, Lucius Fox, the heroes of Angor.

    My God, I thought I was the only one who even remembered Steve Lombard!
    But what about Steve Howard? Or Martha Roberts of Earth One?

    Oh, man, so many cool cosmic characters who debuted in the 70s.

    And let us not forget James Hudson and his Alpha Flight!

    Almost all the major characters created by the "Big Four"'-- Englehart, Gerber, McGregor and Moench-- appeared in the 1970s. Mantis, Doctor Bong, Killmonger and his entourage, Clive Reston--

    And of course all the Marvel and DC monsters.

    Etrigan !

    Swamp Thing!

    Thoth-Amon, in his Marvel comics incarnation. One of the rare major villains not to be quickly made irrelevant due to overexposure.
