People from Golden, Silver or even Bronze age cant be accepted.

Aliens can be accepted as long as there not Kryptonian, Zenn-La or any other place where a character has appeard from of the same gender.

Miss Martian only made her first appearance in Teen Titans, but she is a white Martian and they have been around for a while so she can't be accepted.

What's with the qualifiers and why are you singling out Miss Marian? (not that's she's terribly original anyway)

How is he original?

Miss Martian was the first one to come to me. I dont know much about Hulking, i just red a quick review of him. and i dont know if another person has the same background so people will have to help me.

Jack Hawksmoor, looks good enough.

I used to live on a street named Hawksmorr :D

2) Bishop- (became a MAJOR X-men character)

3) Sentry

Well, the definition of original is personal, but the fact is, these 3 characters became quite popular, and integrated, into continuity. They also, still exist today in major influence...

You're right, your definition differs from mine. While I wouldn't have said any of the ones you did, I do understand and agree with your reasoning.

I think Buckshot wins this topic. I don't think Spawn or Sentry is very original.

Yeah, Sqirrel Girl s also a good pick. I thought she was created earlier than 1992, but apparently not.

Yes, it's really rare to have a female comic book character who is based on an animal that is not a cat, fox or bird. 99% of animal-themed female characters are based of different felines.

Also she was created to be not sexy and that is also quite rare for a female comic book character.

And she's on a team with another female hero not meant to be sexy, Big Bertha.

Deadpool isn't original but he is a step toward new territory...


 I'll go with Venom.  Even though he was overused at his first appearance he was definately new.
