    None of the Freedom Fighters were actually created in the 70s, though. With the exception of Phantom Lady, none of them were really even visually updated from their Golden Age roots.

    I really liked Ulysses Bloodstone:



    and Devil-Slayer had a weird history before appearing as a Marvel character:

    Didn't the Wrecking Crew first appear in Thor in the 60s?

    Bloodstone in particular was a really cool idea, but they never seemed to do it justice.

    No. The Wrecker himself was a 60s creation, but his crew didn't arrive until 1974 (Defenders #17).

    I agree, and it's kind of borderline case. The characters originated in the Golden Age, with Quality, but DC didn't roll them out until the 70's. Ditto the Shazam family of characters.

    True, there was a lot of potential there. They could have explored the past of the Marvel Universe, with flashback stories involving the Hyperborean Age, Atlantis before it sank, medieval times, pulp action in the Roaring 20s, World War II, etc. And Marvel did a lot of one-shot monster comics in the early years, which would have made for a ready supply of opponents for Bloodstone. His psychic powers would have made him a worthy opponent for certain X-villains. Bloodstone would have been perfect for adventures in the Savage Land. And the whole Conspiracy angle could have played out at a slower pace, and maybe involved additional villainous masterminds fighting it out in the shadows. If Marvel does decide to reboot their line with this Marvel NOW thing, it would be a great time to bring back Bloodstone.
