    God, I can't think of anything dumber than butchering characters because their franchise failed expectations. That'll really help the next guys who try to make it!
    Inferno is a member of Marvel Rising, so he's still around. Not as successful as Moon Girl or Ms. Marvel, but not forgotten. The rest though have been reduced to occasional cameos (Iso was in Rising's just finished second comic volume too, but only because Morgan le Fay attacked New Attilan).

    And what's with those Hulk scans? Machine Man guesting? He's hardly forgotten, he's currently being used in Iron Man!

    Machine Man #10 Aug 1979
    "Renewal"
    Continued from Incredible Hulk #237.


    During a repair process by Dr. Broadhurst, Machine Man is "downgraded, losing several of his more advanced abilities.

    This is explained by Broadhurst that as an experimental model, his systems would
    eventually break down due to the exertion his abilities place on his core systems.

    Ooh, definitely Butterball! I always love people with only a single super-power, who kind of have to make do in a world where many other heroes have their power, and a bunch of other stuff, because they won the super-power lottery. Invulnerable heroes like Butterball, Diamond Lil and Omerta / Pauli Provenzano (or Laurel Kent, over at the other company) are totally a fave.

    I read the Initiative stuff, but I have no clue what powers Red Nine even has... He seemed neat, although his costume was a little too much like Hardball's, IMO.

    To start I'd go with The Ringmaster from Hulk's rogues. The only Hulk enemies I really hear about are the army or the government.

    Hulk adversaries who aren't the US govt/military, or fellow Gamma-mutates, such as Tyrannus or Moonstone, are definitely my favorites (particularly if they aren't necessarily big bruisers, as it makes for a cooler visual, IMO, than just to have two hyperthyroid meatslabs smacking each other for a dozen pages, not that I don't like the occasional Hulk / Mr. Hyde matchup...).

    Machine Man #11 Oct 1979
    "Byte of the Binary Bug"
    Machine Man and Peter Spaulding go to visit Byron J. Benjamin in the hopes of gaining MM some gainful employment.
    However, they find a villain known as the Binary Bug attempting to steal bonds from Benjamin's safe.
    Machine Man prevents him from stealing the valuables, but the villain gets away.
    Grateful for his efforts, Benjamin offers him a position as an insurance investigator for Delmar Insurance.

    Delmar's last investigator, Joseph Rambo was fired for tampering with policy files.
    He has since hired the Tinkerer to design him some technological hardware
    so that he may gain revenge upon Delmar as the Binary Bug.

    Machine Man discovers that the Binary Bug is hacking into Delmar Insurance files to acquire
    details concerning clients' assets and then robbing those clients of those self same items.
    His goal is to not only acquire material wealth, but also to undermine the monetary success of his former employers at Delmar.
    One of the clients he attempts to rob is Khan of Xanadu. Machine Man tracks the Bug into Khan’s dirigible.

    I was quite fond of Spellbinder, though it's unfortunate she wasn't featured more often after her 1988 series.
