Riverdale Podcast - Top 5!
« on: April 24, 2016, 08:48:51 AM »
On this week's episode, I'll be running down my top 5 favorite characters outside of the core five. With the exception of Archie, Jughead, Betty, Veronica, and Reggie, who are your favorite characters? I'd love to see your lists and share them on the show!


Thanks!

I'm not sure if you were thinking of this in terms of characters that would be considered 'secondary' or 'supporting' characters (like Pop Tate, Mr. Lodge, or Cheryl Blossom) ONLY in those titles that are Archie-centric...


Because my favorites are really the characters from the other series within the Archieverse.


1. Sabrina
2&3. (tie) Melody & Pepper
4&5. (tie) Alex & Alexandra


But if you were really thinking of the ARCHIE secondary/supporting players, I guess I could make a different list.

Any characters outside of those five. I was thinking supporting characters as well as other titles, Josie, That Wilkin Boy, Suzie, etc. Thanks for the clarification!

In no particular order:
  • Trula Twyst — always fun to see her match wits with Jughead  ;D
  • Dilton Doiley — also fun for the weirdness and strange inventions that make the gang’s life interesting  ::)
  • Cheryl Blossom — obvious, but irresistible …  :)
  • 'Jellybean' Jones — for a change of pace …
  • Wendy Weatherbee — for the dynamic it adds …
Of course there’s Sabrina, the Pussycats (and Alexandra), Moose & Midge, Ethel … there’s another worthy 5 right there …

The Riverdale Podcast is a podcast (okay, I'm just assuming you know what that is) where Jonathan Merrifield talks about Archie Comics (and occasionally related things). "Sometimes it's a new Archie comic book, sometimes it's an old Archie comic book", as he says, along with news and new releases from the world of Archie Comics.


I think your list is very interesting. I haven't read all those New Riverdale issues, so I mainly just know the old versions of those characters. I thought it was interesting to see January McAndrews as your 3rd favorite (apart from the main five, I guess) because she's a relatively minor character in the older comics (but I like her).

Yep, I know what a Podcast is. I looked at the link and it looks really cool. I will take a listen later today. I really like January McAndrews because she can time travel which I think is really neat. I also like her lots because she has a lot of faith in Jughead. Kevin Keller is very nice, but also speaks his mind and stands for something which I think is awesome. Sheila Wu is such a fashion plate and tries so hard in the one Archie issue to transform Betty into a girly girl. Dilton seems like a really loyal friend to Jughead next to Archie. He is also super smart which always can help when you are in a jam which Jughead seems to be in a lot. Pop Tate is just so nice to everybody. He just seems to looks at all these kids as his own kids.

I can see you spent some time thinking about why you like these characters, and I like your reasons. In the older comics, I think January was only in 8 stories (there might have been a couple of very minor appearances outside of those 8, where she was a main character, and the co-star of the story along with Jughead). I don't remember if they mentioned this in the new JUGHEAD, but January is the direct descendant of Archie Andrews from the 29th Century. In the old comics she's a Marshal in the Time Police, and that makes her technically Jughead's boss (he's a new recruit, so he's only a Deputy Marshal), but she falls in love with him (and he does with her, as well). It might not be exactly the same in the new comics, I just thought you'd be interested to know. Most people seem to think that in the new comics, Jughead just has a dream about her, and that she's not real. I might have a different opinion on that topic.

I don't remember if they do mention that she is a descedant to Archie. I do remember that the villain they are after is a descendant of Reggie though. In the new Jughead story January goes to kiss Jughead after he saves the day and he disappears at that very moment back to the present time. Convenient for Jughead, huh?

In the new Jughead story January goes to kiss Jughead after he saves the day and he disappears at that very moment back to the present time. Convenient for Jughead, huh?


More importantly, it's convenient for Jughead fans who get upset if he seems to have a girlfriend. That was always a source of controversy over the old comics in which January appeared as well, because Jughead appeared in the regular Archie Comics, while January only really appeared in the stories in JUGHEAD'S TIME POLICE, and was never mentioned (by Jughead or anyone else) in stories outside of that. Is she real? Or just a figment of Jughead's overactive imagination? That seems to be what most people think. But if you could really travel through time, you could probably make people think a lot of things they really saw were "just imaginary". Time travel allows you to appear and disappear at will, or go back in time and change something that already happened (because you saw it happen) and prevent it from happening. Maybe even use 29th Century technology to 'magically' erase someone's memory.


Speaking of appearances and characters who appear in one series, while never being referred to in another, have you ever wondered why in JUGHEAD, Riverdale High is taken over by the evil Principal Stanger, while over in ARCHIE, everything at the school seems to be normal and Stanger isn't mentioned? It's almost as if one of those stories was taking place in a different alternate timeline or something...

Keep in mind that I enjoy reading old MLJ titles online when checking out my list of favorites:

1. Kevin Keller
2. Cosmo the Merry Martian
3. Dotty and Ditto
4. Jinx (the teen version much more than the 'Lil version)
5. Sam Hill
