The most obscure superheroes that need to make a comeback

One of the coolest things about comic books is the incredible library of characters that has been built up over the last century or so. Publishers are always trying to throw new ideas at the wall to see what sticks, and some of the most unlikely heroes have received second chances (Squirrel Girl, anyone?). With the announcement of the new DC sitcom Powerless centering around that company’s lesser-known characters, and Marvel giving solo books to just about anyone, it’s a good time to be in a costume.

That said, there are still plenty of heroes out there just waiting for their chance to make a big comeback. Whether that will be on TV, in the pages of the comics, or in some new entertainment medium that we haven’t even thought of yet, we don’t know. We decided to dive deep into the longboxes and bring forth 11 characters that have been lost to the mists of time and deserve a new chance in the 21st century.

What are your thoughts? Are there any back issue warriors that have been missing in action for too long?
