Top Five Archie Characters Who Deserve Their Own Title

by  in Comic News Comment

Top Five Month continues (check here to see an archive of all the top five lists featured so far) with a look at the top five Archie characters without their own title who I think could carry one.

Enjoy!

5. Cheryl Blossom


On the one hand, it was cool to see a female character so independent, but on the other hand, Cheryl was not all THAT interesting. I mean, was there an adventure you could do with Cheryl Blossom that you COULDN’T do with Veronica?

I say thee NAY!

4. Chuck Clayton


Chuck is an underrated character, but I am afraid that his hook (“comic artist”) just is not strong enough to support his own series. I like that he HAS a hook, though.

And also, among the choice on this list, he’s the only one who has never had a solo series, so while all the others have had series that failed in the past, Chuck has never gotten the CHANCE to fail!

3. Dilton Doiley


Dilton’s weird science stuff is enough of a gimmick for a series (and HAS been in the past), but I do not know if it could sustain itself. A bit of a one-trick pony.

2. Reggie Mantle


Reggie, on the other hand, is a much more well-rounded character. He isn’t just about mean pranks. He is also about girls, sports, etc. There is a reason why he is in the Archies. He is popular enough to merit an inclusion. Plus, he has the whole Moose nemesis thing going on. I think a Reggie series would also be a nice challenge for the writers to make him appealing. It has worked in the past (his series ran for a decent run, if I remember correctly).

1. Josie and the Pussycats


This is just silly.

They should have their own series right now.

I don’t know why Archie doesn’t think they would sell as much as Jughead.

And manga, I think, is the way to go.

All you Archie fans out there, agree or disagree?
