Friday Fiends: Anonymous Archie Adversaries

Who knows who these greedy generic goons are, but at least we know something about their heroic opposite numbers... that they fill the roll of a punch line with their knockout punch! Consider a few such examples:


Charlton never seemed to find as much appeal mixing their humor properties nor the others (romance, war, mystery, etc) with superheroics. For Archie, however, even when they were not publishing such characters through their MLJ, Mighty and Red Circle brands, they at least had homages due the hero (and villain) niche that for a brief period in the golden age helped start up their now successful enterprise and thus launched the Archie franchise to global heights of today.
