There have been a number of wolves and foxes.
Well, there was Yankee Poodle in the Amazing Zoo Crew.
Before the Turtle, there was Cornelis Drebbel, who built a submarine (essentially a leather-sealed rowboat) that ran up and down the Thames in 1620. King James I is said to have taken a ride, and reports at the time maintained that Drebbel had some sort of air-refreshing chemical process.
Not long after the Turtle, Robert Fulton, of steamboat fame, made a working submarine that he called the Nautilus. Verne named his fictional submarine after Fulton’s, and, of course, a number of real submarines have been named after Verne’s.
If you go by Dante, the third-to-last subdivision of the ninth and last circle, as a traitor to his country. (Traitors to their guests and traitors to their benefactors go even lower, but I cannot honestly call those Trumpian trademarks.)

Indeed, George Washington did indeed use pencils. For writing, of course, he used quill pens.
If we’re talking about leading characters from strips, not comic books, there aren’t as many as there should be.

Americans don’t know Jane, of course.
Not dinosaurs; they’re actually siblings of the ancestors of the mammals.
