(Peter Cannon, aka Thunderbolt, is a special case. The rights to that character reverted to his creator, and although DC licensed them and published a few stories with the character at one point, they subsequently again reverted and have since been licensed by other publishers.)

The company was a division of Charlton Publications, an equally low-budget magazine company. Its main technique for success was keeping costs low; it used a printing press made of plastic (instead of the more reliable and accurate metal) that had originally been used to print cereal boxes, and kept the same one from its opening in 1931 until closing its doors in 1986.

Said characters were [[CanonInvasion integrated into]] Franchise/TheDCU, with some faring better than others; the aforementioned Blue Beetle and Question have probably fared the best, though Captain Atom's been relatively high-profile as well. These characters attained reputation and prestige as [[InspirationForTheWork one of the inspirations]] for Alan Moore's ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}''. Moore originally planned to revive and update a pre-established stable of characters, initially considered the MLJ line only to learn that DC did not have rights to them as he had assumed. On learning of DC's acquisition of Charlton, Moore pitched the series with them, with the editor rejecting the idea since Moore's idea would make them unusable for future use, leading him instead to make original characters similar to Ditko's Charlton creations. The success and legacy of ''Watchmen'' via its CaptainErsatz characters ended up raising the Charlton inspirations prestige (especially Captain Atom, The Question, Blue Beetle).
