History

MLJ Comics was named after its three creators first initials: Morris Coyne, Louis Silberkleit and John Goldwater. Today, it is doing business as Archie Comics, named for its flagship character, Archie Andrews. The collective hero stock was known as "Red Circle".

During the superhero boom of the 1940s, MLJ produced various titles featuring their own superheroes, including the first patriotic-themed superhero The Shield and an early "magic ring" hero, The Fly. Archie tried reviving the Red Circle several times before giving up on it. In 1991, the superheroes were licensed by DC for their Impact Comics imprint.

In 2008, it was announced that the characters would be introduced in the pages of Brave and the Bold (Volume 3) as part of the DC Universe. This never came to be.

Their first introduction as New Earth citizens occurred in October 2009 when DC published The Red Circle — four one-shots with each issue spotlighting on a revamped DC version of a MLJ/Red Circle superhero.
