Marvel Comics UK 169 1992 1994 Though Marvel had reprinted material originally created for and distributed in the UK market, like G.I. European Missions, or distributed additionally to the US market material prepared for the UK market, like Death’s Head and Dragon’s Claws, they first used the Marvel UK brand on US product with Death’s Head II #1, cover-dated March 1992. The main line ended with issues cover-dated April 1994, though a different Marvel UK logo was used from that point on Doctor Who: Classic Comics through #27, dated December 1994. Pumping Iron is a Marvel UK sub-imprint; Marvel Frontier Comics is actually a Marvel UK sub-imprint, though a Marvel UK logo is not part of the trade dress. Several Marvel UK series were solicited, but never released, including: Motormouth & Killpower, Bloodrush, Death Duty, Roid Rage, Trakker (aka Timestryke), Officer Outbody, Removal Vs. Motormouth, Ripwire, Warhide, Wild Angels, Loose Cannons, Killfrenzy, Dark Guard Gold, and Motormouth: Re-Mix.

Not the same as the "Marvel Comics Group" banner, as "Group" is considered part of the brand since it refers to the publisher. Since "Limited Series" refers to the series, it is not part of the brand.

Marvel Next; Marvel 35 2005 2006 According to the press release ( http://marvel.com/news/story/14/marvel_next ) this was "not a new line or imprint" but instead a "collection of titles that will spotlight young characters in fresh and exciting ways." The most prominent titles named in the press release, Young Avengers and Runaways, never actually carried the Marvel Next logo. The logo was used inconsistently on several of the series where it did appear. It was used from March 2005 through February 2006, which encompassed the complete run of its longest title, Araña Heart of the Spider (Marvel, 2005 series).

Marvel [white on red] 9260 2001 Marvel started putting ".com" in its logo box in 2006, then abandoned the practice for a while, and then resumed in 2007- after some discussion, this is not considered to be a separate brand. In the same period, Marvel also began integrating descriptions such as "Variant Edition", "Limited Series" and "One-Shot" in the logo box in the same position. These are similarly ignored. In some cases, the white-on-red has been substituted for other colors, likely because the red did not stand out against the background.
