Knowledge Waits: All of Marvel's Characters From Their 1993 Annuals

In Deathlok Annual #2, Evan Skolnick, John Hebert and Mark McKenna and Roy Richardson delivered the Tracer, a rich guy whose father was obsessed with superheroes. He was then killed and the son believes he was deliberately killed by a superhero, so the son spent their fortune turning himself into a cybernetic manhunter whose body and armor could be temporarily altered to match the abilities of any given superhero. So he could be super quick and agile to fight Spider-Man or super-strong to fight Wonder Man or really super-strong to fight the Wasp. Stuff like that.

He faces off against Deathlok and does quite well...

In Doctor Strange, Sorcerer Supreme Annual #3, Geof Isherwood wrote and penciled the issue (with inks by Dave Simon), introducing Kyllian, a Celtic hero who is bound to the Celtic gods through rune tattoos on his body...

Kyllian ended up being a regular cast member in Doctor Strange's book for the next year or so.

In Excalibur Annual #1, Evan Skolnick, Chris Marrinan, Audwynn Newman, Mark McKenna, Danny Bulanadi and Keith Williams gave us this whole elaborate storyline about a war on another planet, with magic and stuff like that. The good guy on the planet was named Khaos ("So you're name is Choas." "No, it's Khaos." "Yeah, that's what I said, Chaos." "No, with a K! With a K!!")...

After Excalibur helps him fight back the bad guys, he sadly ends up stranded on Earth.

1993 was sort of the year of the exo-skeleton, which was made clear in Fantastic Four Annual #26, where Tom DeFalco, Herb Trimpe and Bud La Rosa introduce us to Wildstreak...
