My question remains open, so I will give a big hint.

I'm thinking of portrayals of the characters by these actors:

Dracula - Christopher Lee
Hannibal Lecter - Anthony Hopkins
John Lennon - Ian Hart
James Bond - Sean Connery
Robert Kennedy - Steven Culp
Charles Manson - Damon Herriman


Same guy played them more than once?

Trying to come up with a guess for this one just so I can say I tried, but it's not going well.

Cap, Namor and Barry make me think about wings but that doesn't work for the other two; Namor, Creeper and Metamorpho give me "fighting crime in trunks" but that doesn't work for the other two; Cap, Namor and Barry debuted (or were reintroduced) in the 4th issue of an extant series, but not the other two (can't even go with multiples of 4 since Metamorpho was B&B #57 and Creeper was Showcase #73); everyone but Cap was introduced in an anthology/spotlight book and then got their own title; Captain America, Sub-Mariner, Creeper got their own books in 1968, but Metamorpho lost his that year and Barry's series was well established before and lasted for years after; Cap, Barry, Namor and Metamorpho all had their major love interests killed off, but I don't remember that happening to the Creeper...

I think at this point I'm at "characters with e's in their name." :-)

Dave P: Hulk, Human Torch, Flash, Batman and, huh, the Mimic again

Perhaps related with leaving a team? The Hulk and the Human Torch left their teams quite early. Batman and Mimic left their teams (Batman left a team TWICE... touchy guy.) And Jay Garrick left the JSA first. Close to the mark?

Exactly.

Yep. The idea was first departure. Hulk in Avengers #2, Human Torch in Fantastic Four #3 (not that he stayed gone for long), Flash (Jay Garrick) in All-Star Comics #6, Batman in Batman and the Outsiders #32 and the Mimic in X-Men #29.

(As for my list adjustment, IMO, Sub-Mariner was the first true departure from the Defenders in #14 of that book, but OHOTMU would say that Silver Silver and Hawkeye were members and they left in #11, so...)

And now I just remembered that Halo left the Outsiders for a bit starting in BATO #16. Whoops!

Which I guess means Eric nailed it. :-)

(And that I need to double check things rather than relying on memory.)

Well, yes, but it's more specific than that...

For example, Roger Moore as Bond would not fit in my list.
