Previously we have considered the brief forays into multi-media of the Charlton and MLJ characters. Sadly, there has never been an animated forum for the latter, which may have had the potential to buoy Archie's hero brand to success.
True some minor comics publishers have attempted this only to quickly close shop on their television venue. Nevertheless, given the subtle but strong staying power of such concepts as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Sonic, with lengthy publihsed series in comic book forum following their cartoon appearances, its not hard to conceive of something similar transpiring with the Fly, Web, and the rest of the Mighty Crusaders.
Now that these characters have seemingly defaulted back to Archie after their latest failed attempt over at DC, now would be the time to capitalize on this concept. And of course, a guest star appearance by a certain Dark Knight (be it in DCAU or Brave and Bold form) wouldn't hurt. C'mon Bats... you bosses owe these under used assets that much for what meager profits they gave you through the years?
