    While I don't read Daredevil, I was under the impression that the Kingpin had consistently been a Daredevil villain in the past couple of decades. It was mainly the Spider-Man animated series from the 90s that re-established the Kingpin as a major antagonist for Spidey. Both the times that Daredevil has appeared in film (the Affleck film and the Incredible Hulk TV Series special), he is pitted against the Kingpin as the main villain.
    Yeah, that's what I was getting at: readers my age or even substantially younger, grew up thinking of the Kingpin as a Spider-Man villain, but I imagine that anyone who started reading Marvel in the 80s might see him as a Daredevil viallin, since he became so important in Miller's DD series. Maybe it's changed back again now, I don't know; I don't know enough about what's happened since the 80s to say one way or the other.

    Ambush Bug first appeared in DC Comics Presents #52, as a relatively silly villain.

    Rogue first appeared in Avengers Annual #10. She looked middle-aged in that issue and seemed 10 years younger when she showed up in X-Men, but that might have just been a difference between artists.

    I actually meant pretty well OVER WITH, or finished, which was a better choice of words, LOL.

    Quick, guess which major DC character first appeared in this comic:




    Yes, it's... Zatanna!
    At last, Boy Comics finally gets its own website!

    Well, "Flash Comics" was an anthology, and I think they decided on the anthology title first and then decided to create a character by that name. When the character proved popular, he got his own book, All-Flash.

    In Flash Comics, he wasn't even on all the covers - they alternated covers between Flash and Hawkman.

    So we really dodged a bullet there (heh), since the lead feature could easily have been a guy who, clad only in a raincoat, opens it from time to time to unleash his own brand of "justice": The Flash!

    Crazy Quilt, best known as Batman (or, more specifically, a Robin villain) made his first appearance battling the Boy Commandos in Boy Commandos #15.

    First origin of a design rather than an actual character: Roy Thomas' and Barry Smith's version of Conan first appeared in Chamber of Darkness #4 (although he was called "Starr the slayer" for that story).
