Archie Proposes To Veronica


Yes, comic books have never really been the subject of a post here unless you count Christina Aguilera's makeup. However, I think this one time something needs to be said about the fact that in the latest comic book, Archie has decided to propose to Veronica. What on earth is Archie thinking? There is no way this is going to work out well. This is going to be like every season of the Bachelor. Oh sure it starts out all nice and heart warming but the next thing you know they realize that Archie doesn't have enough money to afford the lifestyle of which Veronica is accustomed and she grows bitter and resentful and ends up sleeping with Reggie for money. Hey, that almost sounds like Kim Kardashian. Wow, comic books are like real life. No, I am sure Kim loves Reggie for Reggie.

Anyway, at some point Veronica will leave Archie and he will then see the true love of his life, Betty for all she is worth. But, by then Betty will be married and have kids and Archie will be forced to move in with Jughead and the two will decided to make ends meet by doing a very off Broadway version of The Odd Couple.

I don't know what the writers were thinking here. I mean it seems to me that Archie might be thinking of this through parts of his anatomy which are best left unsaid. This is a family comic book after all.

Archie has let fame go to his head(s). He is meant to be with Betty and no good will ever come of this.

I would hope Betty would bust through the doors of the church as the preacher says, "Speak now or forever hold your peace" Or is it your piece?

Enty, you proved their point. Has anyone even cared about Archie, Betty, Veronica or Jughead in the last 20 years? Nope. All of the sudden, the internet is frenzied with posts about this. Buzz created. People care about Archie and the gang again.

Getting married??? Aren't they still high school students at Riverdale High? What will Mr. Weatherby say? I bet Archie got Veronica in the "family way" and Mr. Lodge is holding a gun to him, just outside of the picture.

Poor long suffering Betty. She will enter a marriage of convenience with Jughead so that he can remain in the closet get his mom to stop bugging him to get married and Betty can let Archie think she's got it all.

If I were Archie, I would get Maury Povich involved in this because I'd be wiling to bet the kid belongs to that tool Reggie. Maybe Professor Flutesnoot can perform and under the radar DNA test in his lab.

Sorry....HUGE fan of the Archie comics growing up...can't believe they are still around.

I haven't read an Archie comic in years but supposedly its gonna be a 4 or 6 part series. They have aged everybody a few years so they are out of college. I think what will initially happen is he proposes to Veronica, they start planning the wedding and then right before they march down the aisle he realizes Betty is his true love and marry her.

@ice angel

Love what Michael K said on dListed - the whole thing is a scam between Archie and Betty to kill Veronica and scamper off with her money - ha!

Sugar, ah honey honey, you are my candy girl, and you got me wanting you.

figgy said...

Betty and Veronica should become lovers and leave Archie to cry in his root beer.

Miranda said...

I hope they do get married and Veronica cuckolds Archie with Reggie. That's totally what would happen on Gossip Girl.

And then Betty will find someone way more awesome to love and rub it in poor, pathetic Archie's face. Maybe Dilton Doiley will get super hot when he grows up.

Rocket Queen said...

@ whole_lotto - I have that song on my iPod! I especially love the ending.

@ Miranda - looking back, I'd be all over Dilton!

"...Archie will be forced to move in with Jughead and the two will decided to make ends meet by..."

Wow, you must be in shock over the whole, ordeal cuz your fingers skated right off the keyboard. In other news, that's a great idea for a spin-off, Archie and Jughead rooming it. Hey, then they can go commune with rejected Betty and Reggie, like Doonesbury.

monalisa, is that winston?

ardleigh said...

I didn't know anyone read ARCHIE anymore.

No Veronica and Archie will last 10yrs and then he will leave her for one of Josie and the Pussycats who is now stripping to feed her two illegit kids. Veronica will take Archie to the cleaners in the divorce and become a cougar to fantastically wealthy Richie Rich.

Sorry I haven't looked at a comic since Marvel killed Captain America.

Miss X said...

Right on, Enty. Archie belongs with Betty.

@Ice Angel LOL! Awesome comments. :)
