Top Five Archie Characters Without Their Own Title!

Outside of the five Archie characters who currently have their own title (Archie, Jughead, Betty, Veronica and Sabrina), who else should have their own title? These are, I think, the top five Archie characters without their own title!

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.

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?

The lady that's doing Sabrina now is doing a Jose and the Pussycats series soon, isn't she? Or at least a manga-y graphic novel.
