    A lot of the characters Kirby created for his solo books at DC and Marvel:

    Orion
    Barda
    Mister Miracle
    Darkseid
    The Demon
    OMAC
    Thena
    The Reject
    Karkas
    Sersi
    etc, etc

    Shang Chi and the rest of the MoKF cast:
    Reston
    Leiko Wu
    Tarr (or was he a pre-existing character, like Nayland Smith?)

    Mantis, in Englehart's Avengers

    the supporting cast in Gerber's Man-Thing series:
    Dakimh
    Jennnifer Kale
    Korrek
    Thog

    I always liked the idea behind Ulysses Bloodstone, but his stories were too scattered to get a handle on.

    I loved Ironwolf...I really wish they had done an ongoing series with that character.

    Too right.

    I was going to say either 'Sersi is made of teh win' or 'I'll see your Sersi and raise you Aurelie,' then looked a little further up your list and saw the words ''Thena' and 'The Reject' and realised that there are a large number of superb characters created by Kirby during this period.

    I think Tarr is a Moench creation - i cannot recall him from any of the (few) Fu books I've read.

    They did. It's just that the ongoingness didn't go on for very long.

    It's splitting hairs, but that character actually did appear back in the 50's.

    While she didn't appear in American comics as Psylocke until 1986, Betsy Braddock first appeared in Captain Britain #8, the 70's weekly superhero comic published by Marvel's England branch.

    Depends on how you look at it, I guess.

    Yes it does. I thought her first appearance as Psylocke was her first appearance ever, including Betsy Braddock.

    I thought that too for a long time, but she was a regular supporting character int he 70's Captain Britain weekly, beginning in late 1976. Her first appearance is in #8:



    Here's one little, completely out of context scan of her first panels:



    She honestly doesn't do a whole hell of a lot at the beginning; I have a TPB that collects the first 23 issues or so of this comic and she basically crashes a plane or something and has a couple weird psychic episodes and that's more or less it.

    Copies of this comic can be occasionally found at comic shows for like $50. They are kind of hard to find and hard to store as well because they are oversized format.

    However, one of my personal favourites who started out as on of Ms. Marvel's enemies, is Deathbird:

    Why do I find Deathbird so cool? Well, it's because in those early appearances in Ms. Marvel, she seemed to have a warrior's code of honour. This code prevented her from letting innocent bystanders fall to their deaths during a rematch with Carol, but didn't keep her from landing a hilariously cheap sucker punch on Carol immediately after. Nonetheless, I thought that her 'warrior's pride' was pretty cool, beside her striking visual appearance, and her power set.
    I think that's the way Deathbird should be written; some later appearances have her play the role of a sneaky backstabber, because she's a usurper (to the throne of the Shi'ar). And a lot of writers equate usurper with treacherous coward, because so many fictional characters as well as historical figures have been that way. But while Deathbird certainly is a conniver, she also loves the thrill of fight, and she has the power and skill to hold her own on the battlefield. Last time I saw the REAL Deathbird, it was when she was hanging out with Bishop. Not the pale shadow that was at the side of Vulcan in the recent X-Men space romps and the War of Kings crossover event.

    Carol Danvers did appear in the '60s, but not as Ms. Marvel. So did Bill Foster, but not as Black Goliath, which is why I left him off my list. It makes sense to exclude Carol for the same reason.\

    So let's replace her with Bobbi Morse, who first appeared in the Ka-Zar run in Astonishing Tales.
