Having just recently started reading the Him/Adam Warlock/Space Jesus stuff, I’m left wondering if another character had as many cameos, reappearances,

« deaths » as Warlock... there are at least 4 cocoon cameos before Thor 165, right?

Venom had a Web of Spider-Man 18 and 24 and ASM 298 and 299, so that is a tie.  Mystique is up there too.

Mystique had one brief, mysterious appearance before appearing on 7 of the 17 story pages in the next issue, using her power and being called by her first name.

I was going to say Venom also.  What about Ben Reilly?  There were a lot of one panel, mysterious shots of him before it was established that there were two individuals claiming to be Peter Parker.

I guess Mary Jane Watson  is out of the running here.  Looks like Warlock (Him) might be the winner.

He first appeared in ASM 149. :gossip:

He might be in the running for longest buildup for a returning character, though there are some other contenders.

Darkseid appeared 2× before first. Not as much as Warlock, but still enough to aggravate any rational thinking collector

So what about the confusing appearances of Sgt Rock before OAAW 83? What's real verses prototype?

Mary Jane would be a contender.

??? When did she return with a long sequence of teasers? Where did she go that she even needed to return?

her into was a few teasers, it was a joke that they kept missing eachother and you didn't see her full appearance for a while. But yeah, aside from a stint where she went away to become an actress she did indeed become a mainstay, I was thinking more of the tease part.

The answer is Marvel’s Cameo Man.  To this day, never had a first full appearance
