Comments: Thanks to Rob Wheelock for informing me of this character. He notes "Ms. Vanity was introduced to SuperTeens fans in issue # 4 of Archie's Super Teens (January, 1996) in the lead story Vanity, Thy Name Is Veronica. She's seen wearing a leather outfit: a pink bodice that stops just above her midriff, with purple shoulderpads and black cape; a black leather skirt with a white lap band and pink double-buckle belt; black and pink boots; black and pink gloves; she also wears white hoop-style earrings. She also appeared in issue 14 of Archie's (Weird) Mysteries (August, 2001)."
