    Default REALLY obscure Marvel heroes?

    Who are some REALLY obscure Marvel heroes? Now, when I've seen post like this in the past people usually name, like, Monica Rambeau or Stingray, etc. Lesser known heroes, but ones most comic fans will have at least heard of. But I'm looking for REALLY obscure characters...ones that would stump some hardcore comic fans. Characters like:

    Spellbider:

    Solarman:

    https://comicvine.gamespot.com/solarman/4005-54462/

    S.U.R.F.

    Masked Marvel:

    Gomi:

    They don't have to be "bad" characters, or comedic ones, just ones that for whatever reason didn't stick around.

    Thanks.

    LOL! I was just reading up on them. Why are so few heroes? I like Wildstreak. Surprised she wasn't used more.

    Sleepwalker

    actually I have seen a couple posters wondering about sleepwalker, so I guess not obscure enough.

    Not a character per se, but I've always had a fondness for the RED RONIN mecha armor.



    I haven't been a Marvel regular since 1984, but I'll buy the hell out of any book that features Red Ronin.

    Wildstreak was the first person that came to mind for me with this thread. Her latest appearance was in Fantastic Four during Civil War, when she inadvertently busted out of the Negative Zone prison for unregistered superheroes and Susan helped her escape by making her invisible.

    He was in Avengers: The Initiative. Not too obscure, just not popular enough to be used any more.

    3D Man. Under the name Triathlon, he was an Avenger. At the end of his tenure, he met the original 3D Man, and took on his legacy. He later proved important in Secret Invasion as he can see through Skrull disguises on sight. Last appeared in Agents of Atlas, I think?

    Shamrock


    She had powers similar to Longshot, and when the luck ran out, she became a sought after hairdresser, as you do.

    KHAOS!



    Because what's cooler than a drow elf? A drow with technomagic wings! Suck it, Drizzt!

    This guy was so blatantly someone's D&D character that I actually kinda admired the writer's shamelessness in throwing him into the Marvel U. XD
