    LOL! Hahaha!! Wow!!! I never knew some of these characters existed. In some way, it's kinda awesome! Maybe they'll bring some of these characters back for cameos in the future or whatever. Great list! Thanks for that! XD

    You had to be smarter than the average comics reader to get and enjoy the exquisite Howard the Duck. Steve Gerber was the only person who could write Howard successfully, and some of his run was sheer genius, using the format to both lampoon the conventions of comic heroes as well as satirize various aspects of human culture. Your rather garbled take on Howard would suggest you didn't exactly take a close look at him before adding him to this list.

    Sorry, but your information on Howard the Duck is wrong. During the time of it's run it was a very popular comic, it's demise due to creator Steve Gerber leaving amid legal wrangles with Marvel over ownership of the character.

    His run is still one of the most respected comics ever, and this was clearly reflected in the obituaries and tributes following Gerber's death.

    The terrible 80s movie tarnished the name HTD in the popular mainstream, but that does not mean the comics were not respected or popular.

    I also get the feeling you either haven't read the original comics, or didn't 'get' them.

    I would guess the 'haven't read them' option, as from looking through the original comics you would see the amount of Howard merchandise, and how prominenet he was featured in Marvel ads that featured their flagship characters, which reflects his brief, bright popularity in the comics world.

    Read some comics dude.

    Nice post.

    Actually Lockjaw was introduced as a member of the Inhumans. They take on many forms and tend to be humanoid. So Lockjaw is probably a humanoid who looks like a dog. by the way he talks. In an issue of fantastic Four ( can't remember which ) he spoke to the great surprise of the Thing. When asked why he had never spoken before he calmly replied that he never had anything to say.

    As for Dr. Bong he made appearances in She-hulk where he acquired a new power by being able to create realities out of Tv shows and also most recently in the Daughters of the Dragon ltd series where he was hanging out ina supervillian bar and got trashed by the heroines.
