Clea (did not get a name until Roy Thomas took over writing Dr. Strange)

Rogue (only got a name after the first movie)

Silver Surfer

Spider-Woman? (Didn't they at first believe she was a mutated spider?)

Stranger (well, not sure if he counts as a protagonist, but he did defeat Magneto at his first appearance)
