I recognize
Fin Fang Foom (or another Makluan)
Goom
Groot (or another from his species)
Easter Island alien (from Tales to Astonish #16)
Granitor (or another Gargoyle from Stonus Five)

I didn't see where was Martha Johansson among the class (or is that the one on the right of Evan?) orTrance

who is on the front, and right against the blackboard?
Who's the red-haired girl behind him? I say Mercury
Who is on the right of Evan/Genesis?

On the last page of students, isn't that Blindfold?
There's a shape behind Idie: Rockslide?

Nice job naming the monsters.

That's Martha Johansson (old looking, wearing a dress)

I thought it was Trance, but Mercury would work also.

I have no idea who the sleeping kid with the bag on his head is.

Good catch on Blindfold and Rockslide.

Uh, Martha's No-Girl - the brain in a jar.

Old Lady Girl is Ernst.

The character behind Idie is a bit small to be Rockslide. It's probably Bling! (that type of head-shape is becoming too common, Iceman sports it and Mike Allred has created Atomics characters with it too)

The Devil looks like Satan from early Ghost Rider issues (with all the retcons I don"t know if he was supposed to be Mephisto, Marduk Kurios or what)

Since this issue it mostly one flashback per panel, it's going to be fun to analyse and chronologise.
