    I think the younger posters might not even know those existed.

    Dell Four-Color was probably the most successful audition book anyone ever published. I think it even beat DC's SHOWCASE for the number of successful launches.

    Gonna go with byrd156. It's an actual try-out anthology, a lasting legacy and a quirky villain.

    Pharozonk for beating me to the Legion. And DubipR? That issue isn't within two decades of the introduction of the Legion of Substitute-Heroes.

    Restricting myself to actual tryout books. Of those, the most iconic was posted by jodoc.

    But you can argue that they were featured with a possible ongoing in mind. Thus The "try Out " part.

    marvelmaniac6169. I'd completely forgotten about that one. Stan even put a caption at the end of the story saying basically, kids, this was a try-out, do you want Captain America back or not?

    Just as an aside, Mark Waid retold that story in a really funny issue of Sentinel of Liberty. The Torch narrates it to Cap, who completely can't believe it. "And you thought that was ME?"
