With the recent so-called "reboot" of Archie STH (plus its spin-off series, Archie Sonic Universe), many Archie fans are (naturally) all in a tizzy---especially on the topic of all the characters not originating from the games &/or the SatAM TV show. And rightfully so, IMO.
As I'm sure many, if not all of you, are aware, all former chief writer Ken Penders's characters (sans Scourge, or so I've heard) have recently been banned from the comics with the conclusion of Penders's lawsuit case against Archie. As far as I know, Penders alone created, at the most, about 50 percent of the main non-SEGA/SatAM characters we knew prior to the big Worlds Collide crossover event (see User:MeltingMan234's "List of Banned Characters in the comic" blog on this wiki for more info on that), including fan-favorites Julie-Su, Elias Acorn, and Geoffrey St. John among others.
Yet, all this leaves the question: what about the characters created by Karl Bollers and Michael Gallagher??? Have they been scratched out too, or will they eventually return in some way or another???
For those who don't know which characters I'm talking about, here's a list of the main Bollers/Gallagher characters featured in the comics:
- Mina Mongoose
- Dr. Finitevus
- Amadeus & Rosemary Prower (Tails's parents)
- Hope Kintobor
- Ash Mongoose
- The Downunda Freedom Fighters
- The Sand-Blasters
- Megan Acorn (Elias's wife)
- Agunus, Suguna, & Nugsau (they probably still exist within Ixis Naugus, being his original personas)
P.S., the Arctic Freedom Fighters (another fan-favorite F.F. group) are not on this list because they were created by Angelo DeCesare, not Bollers or Gallagher (DeCesare was the writer of StH: #26, the issue in which the Arctic F.F.s debuted, hence my reasoning); the only other notable DeCesare character (IMO) is Larry Lynx.
