One each for everyone else
If Solsoria is Duchess/Lashina then she was created by Jack Kirby in 1972. This would be the sole '70s character on the team.
If TDK is Arm-Fall-Off-Boy then he was created by Curt Swan and someone who we won't name, in 1989. (Hope this unnamed person isn't getting any money.)
What's really confusing is that Wikipedia and all the fan sites claim Rick Flag was created in the 40s, in the Golden Age. That was Rick Flag Sr though. Isn't the son an Ostrander/McDonnell invention?
Also interesting to note that the Thinker was just a Flash TV Big Bad for an entire season, spanning three different actors. This interpretation of the character appears very different.
