Of Marvel's defunct M2 line, I actually liked Larry Hama's Wild Thing series. Ron Lim's art on it was shit (the fact that it was *THE* Al Williamson inking him is something I still can't quite process) but Hama blended that slice of teenage social life with the superheroics really well. Far better than DeFalco on Spider-Girl.
SS is trying to do something similar, but adding in a Forrest Gump style historical element. Something like that might fit in perfectly at Archie Comics, if they were actually interested in expanding their product line and not just pushing cheap marketing tricks (Archie finally gets married! We've got a gay Riverdale kid now!) This might also require them being willing to pay for better talent than Dan Parent, but I digress.
"The trouble with being a ghost writer or artist is that you must remain anonymous without credit.
If one wants the credit, one has to cease being a ghost and become a leader or innovator." — Bob Kane
