Most Wanted Figure From Each Decade


Recommended Posts

Basic premise, which character originating in a specific decade is your most desired Marvel Legend from that period? It can be a first appearance, or if the character had a significant upgrade/costume change, whatever in a later decade, that's okay too. It also doesn't have to be limited to the comics; you can include MCU figures, the 1970s TV Hulk, the 90s animated series Morph, whatever. I'm starting my list in the 1960s, but if you want to go as far back as the 30s to list that original Human Torch, or The Angel, go ahead!

 

  • 1960s - Doctor Strange
  • 1970s - The Falcon (classic costume with wings)
    • runners-up: Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Brother Voodoo
  • 1980s - Captain Marvel (Monica Rambeau)
  • 1990s - Spider-Man 2099 (upgrade on new buck)
  • 2000s - Maria Hill
    • runners-up: Lionheart
  • 2010s - Moon Girl (with Devil Dinosaur)

So who's on your list? Remember you can add earlier decades, and if you have a strict cutoff at the end of the 20th century, that's fine too.

My wants don't go back that far, so I'll start with the 1980s

1980s - Scourge of the Underworld
1990s - McFarlane Spiderman (I know this is more an '80s thing and Todd left the comic, and Marvel, in 1991, but I'm counting it)
2000s - Madrox (X-Factor Investigations)
2010s - Enigma (USAvengers)

1990 sunfire with the silver shoulder pads as seen briefly in X-men 1

That image is from my very first X-Men comic (Uncanny #284). I used to love Whilce Portacio's art, but now... not so much. I still have a soft spot for that costume, though.

60’s - Mimic

60’s - Changeling

70’s - Erik the Red

70’s - Proteus

80’s - Outback Psylocke

80’s - X-Factor Marvel Girl

90’s - BAF Forearm

This is a really random list and there are certainly some duds on there. We already have Archangel, Iceman, and Cyclops from the X-Factor days. I would like to see them start on the Outback team. I don’t know. I’d by them all.

Great idea for a thread. Thanks!

1970s: Deathbird

1980s: this is where all the competition is for me, but I'll go with Outback Psylocke... Destiny and Spiral will have to wait

1990s: Chamber in classic black Generation X

2000s: Wolverine from the post Astonishing era

2010s: Magik in the costume that matches the Dani Moonstar figure

2020s: Cypher on Krakoa

2010s - Proxima Midnight

2020s - Hmmm....you got me here! So I'll just add my Pre-Millenium Runner-Ups 🙂

60's - High Evolutionary

70s - In-Betweener

What form or appearance would you want Proteus to have? Sort of glowing pink like the Living Laser figure or something else?

I'd like a Deathbird, too, along with a classic Ms. Marvel.

That’s a good question. I didn’t really think about it too much. I might have been cleaned imagining his XTAS look. He kind of looked like a zombie in the comics. Did the cartoon look appear in the comics at all?

Not in the original Proteus saga from #126-128. He kept possessing human hosts that rapidly broke down, giving them the zombie look. The few times you see his "true form" he's kind of just a white silhouette with energy effects around him to give him a shape. I think he's come back in more recent comics, but I don't know what he looks like now.
