I would add:

MARVEL SIDE

SAVAGE TALES #1v1 -1st MAN THING

Adventure into Fear 19- 1st HOWARD THE DUCK

the problem is some announcement may launch and obscure 1st appearance into the stratosphere. Here some I consider underlooked:

DAREDEVIL #150 - 1st Paladin

Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #23-1st Jack of Hearts

Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #19- 1st White Tiger. With the success of Black Panther this is a latino martial arts character ripe for Marvel to use

Invaders #8- 1st Union Jack

Spiderman and his Amazing friends #1-1st Firestar

X-Men #107- 1st STARJAMMERS

Avengers #145- 1st Hellcat

Incredible Hulk Annual #5- 2nd appearance of GROOT not a reprint

Marvel Previews #4-1st Starlord

Incredible Hulk #271-1st Rocket Raccoon

Strange Tales #181- 1st Gamora

Strange Tales #169-1st Brother Voodoo

Power Pack #1-1st Power Pack

DC SIDE

Adventure Comics #428- 1st Ochid

Ragman #1-1st Ragman

New Teen Titans #2-1st Deathstroke and Trigon

New Teen Titans #21-1st Brother Blood also 1st NIGHT FORCE

Legion of Superheroes #298-1st Amethyst Princess of Gemworld

FIrestorm #1-1st Firestorm

Starfire #1-1st Starfire

Action #521-1st Vixen

Just my 2¢

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks for this -- great list!

One small note -- while Incredible Hulk #271 is Rocket Raccoon's first appearance in the comics, he was first introduced in Marvel Preview #7.

Not only is it not a reprint, it's not Groot! Not that a second appearance would be key anyway.

The only Marvel Monster who appears in that issue is Xemnu.

I like the list, but the more D-level characters that you include, alla Night Nurse, Moondragon, etc., the more exponential the list becomes. Is New Gods #7 (1st Steppenwolf) really a "definitive Bronze Age Key"? If you want to just make a listing of all BA 1st appearance books, we can do that...but in my collection, not all 1st appearance books are "Keys". 

 

If we're doing that, I'd add these...a notation as to why they are "key" would be nice for any listing as well:

Great seeing the notes.   I have a few questions on some:

Can you add the notations to the Amazing Spidermans, Avengers, Captain Marvel 25?

Is Cat #1 the fist app?

What’s marvel spotlight 12?

Why Marvel team up #1? 

Why Ms Marvel 16,17,18?

I’d like to see this list ranked by value, but don’t have the time atm to do that.
