I know this is an unusual group of superheroes to ask about, but you fellows seem to have a knack at discovering this information that I so far lack: what is the current legal status of the characters created for Penthouse Comix and Men's Adventure Comix? They were published between 1994 and 1999 until the main line editor, well, committed suicide, and they haven't been used since. I admit, most were pretty terrible parodies of 90's style superheroes, but there were a couple with some legitimate potential.

Not an expert and I couldn't swear to it, but we're talking about stuff that's only 20 years old and Wikipedia claims that foreign versions are still being published. I'd be willing to bet that the copyrights are still sitting in the files at Penthouse. And yeah, some of the characters were pretty terrible, but I did like Doc Dare, Captain Adventure/Hericane, and Miss Adventure. Kind of a shame it what happened to the book.
