Before there was a Marvel Comics Publishing house, there was a company called Timely Publications. The very first comic they produced in October 1939, Marvel Comics #1 would star The Human Torch, Namor The Submariner, the Angel and Ka-zar the Jungle lord.

Later, they would change their name to Timely Comics and publish more well known characters such as Captain America and his sidekick, Bucky. Eventually, in 1961, Timely Comics because Marvel comics and we know how well that turned out.

Due to the historical nature of Timely Comics, I felt it was worth keeping an eye out for any 1st Appearances.
