Excluding Archie and any of the Riverdale Gang, who are your favorite MLJ/Archie Comics characters from the 40s, 50s, and/or 60s?


I've added fifteen of my favorite choices here, but encourage you to add your own choices here in the comments!

Out of the fifteen you listed, you kind of made it easy for me by only including a couple that would have been contenders, like Cosmo and Ginger, so I picked the Hangman (good thing you didn't list any of the 30 or so other superheroes, or it would have been a lot tougher for me to pick just one).

The real answer would probably have been Sabrina, though. Melody and Pepper would probably have tied for second place. Though the first two have obviously appeared in stories with Archie and the gang, none of those characters can be considered spinoffs or supporting characters from ARCHIE, any more than Wilbur, Ginger, Suzie or Katie Keene (who have also all appeared in Archie stories). In fact, if you consider "Night at the Comic Shop", then MOST of those characters have appeared in an Archie story at one time or another, except for The Twiddles (whoever they are). I assume that Sabrina (1962) and characters from JOSIE (1963) are just as fair game as characters like Cosmo (1958) or Young Dr. Masters (1964), since they were first published in the same time period.

Is there a cutoff date for these characters, or can it be just any non-Archie character like JINX (2010)?
