I am collecting obscure Marvel and DC characters introduced in the Bronze Age. I consider this one of those eras where let's throw whatever we can against the wall and see what sticks. Have any suggestions? Nothing is out of bounds here. I will start off with R.jpg.dd3a24f41e9c7bd2f26152300e024f8b.jpg

I always thought Will-O'-The-Wisp from Amazing Spider-Man 167 was under-rated.   Tragic character, likeable, cool powers. 

He's been around and appeared in other stuff, but probably a C list type character.

were you unable to find an image for Steel #1, or is it Swamp Monster you're suggesting?  I loved the pages from the unpublished Steel #6 that were incorporated into All-Star Squadron #8 & 9, re-inked by Jerry Ordway.  Perhaps the best looking Don Heck artwork this side of X-Men #64.

I think Jim Owsley was said to have commented that the above comic was written, penciled, inked and lettered by Alan Kupperberg and untouched by human hands.  Does anyone know which comic featured Obnoxio's first appearance?

I have all 5 Steel's figured I'd post one that gets less love

Those All-Star pages re-inked by a young Ordway are fantastic. There is a CAF gallery that contains most of Steel 6 before the re- ink , they sure look different. Different as in less polished and less substantial.

Lots of great suggestions! Here is a character I actually bought off the stands in the 1970's. I thought this character looked great and the Joe Kubert art was the main selling point for me. Didn't he actually appear in the Arrowverse?

rtist Alan Kupperberg, who would become heavily associated with the character, recounted, "Obnoxio's first appearance was in a one-panel illustration to accompany a subscription ad in Crazy, written by Larry and calling for likenesses of P. T. Barnum and Marcy Tweed among others.

The Monster-type guy in the background has appeared a lot, but I think this was the only appearance of the girl...hm  B|

Someone who looked like her appeared in Superman: the Wedding Annual #1, Marvel Fumetti Book #1 and X-Men Annual #10.

That’s Louise ‘Weezie’ Simonson.  Pretty certain she’s appeared in comics after this cover was published
