Seriously? 
 
That just seems wrong to me. I have no problem with gay people but to put it in an Archie comic...

I like how Archie comics have tried to stay current but done such a bad job.

Enough people are actually still reading Archie comics for them to still be going?

Is mostly character or mostly plot device?

New guy, doesn't even excel as a plot device. So mostly neither of the both.
