Archie Proposes To Veronica

Posted by G-Man (32555 posts) - - Show Bio

There's been some talk lately here and here as to who Archie should marry, Betty or Veronica.  We even had a Question Of The Day about who would be better last summer.  It's something that will always be debated.  At least until now.

It seems Archie is going to propose after 65 years.  This isn't the first time that Archie has decided to chose someone once and for all.  Back in late 1994, early 1995, there was the "Love Showdown" storyline.

Archie Comics announced that Archie Andrews may finally choose between Betty & Veronica once and for all, the response from the media, fans and retailers alike was unprecedented—and with good reason!  The landmark "Love Showdown" storyline threatened the certainty of the love triangle and all it stood for, nearly bringing an end to the friendships of all three characters as Archie chose old flame Cheryl Blossom at story’s end!

Readers had nothing to fear, as ultimately Cheryl wore out her welcome in Riverdale.  While she’s been an occasional presence (and to Betty and Veronica, an occasional nuisance) in the last 15 years, life has returned to normal for Archie and his friends.  And that includes his seemingly never-ending inability to choose between Betty and Veronica, no matter how many times he takes them out.
Now with Archie #600 shipping on August 12, 2009, we will see "Archie Marries Veronica Part 1: The Proposal."  Could it be after all these years we will finally see an end to this debate?  The story will give us a look at Archie and friends after they graduate college.  What jobs and professions might they take on?  Will they stick around Riverdale?  What will Betty think of Archie's decision to choose Veronica?  Will Veronica take Archie's last name?  Will Archie be able to find and keep a steady job?

The issue will be written by Michael Uslan and illustrated by legendary Archie Comics artist Stan Goldberg.  It'll be in comic shops on August 19 and newstands September 1 with a cover price of $2.50.

How do you feel about Archie getting married?  Even if you haven't been keeping up with the characters, the whole Archie-Betty-Veronica love triangle pretty much defined their characters.  Having a marriage will change everything.  Then again, we did see Lois and Clark get married.  Is this the right time for the marriage?  Will it remain permanent or simply be an imaginary tale?

If it doesn't work out, they can just do it the Spider-man way. Archie makes a deal with the devil and it's all erased.

Could the devil just have the series cancelled?

Why Veronica? Because she's rich? Common sense tells us Betty's the right girl.

(Wow, I can't believe I thought that, let alone typed it. It sounds like I'm talking about a soap opera, and I basically am.)

Veronica is a slut and puts out.  YOU do the math.  Archie has a good thing going, but he'd better watch it, she'll leave his Ginger bum once she sees someone better looking & with dough.  

In Edith Bunker's voice,  "AAAAAHHHHRRRCCCHHHHIIIEEEEE!!!".... 

*no one knows who the H I am talking about*  Bwaa Haa Haaa!!

omigawd.

I haven't bought an Archie comic in years! (but most of my life i was a HUGE fan.)

I've been a Betty fan since then. I like being to good girl next door.
(though i did HATE being a walking mat)

Betty and Veronica should have both dumped Archie, moved to MA and married each other.

I bought the recent "Freshman Year" arc but that's it.  I'm sure I might pick this up out of curiousity.

The hell?

Archie marrying Veronica?

What is this crap?

#17 Posted by xscarletkittie (594 posts) - - Show Bio

From the few comics I read when I was a kid, I always thought Betty would be the most likely to get Archie in the end.

That said, I'm thinking this is likely a 'What If?' future story kinda deal and they'll go right back to the high school stories after this 6-parter is done.

RETARD!!!!!!! everyone knows Archie has to marry betty, it's like black cat and mary jane rivalry, black cat/ veronica is hot, but mary jane/ betty is always the right one!

Me, I would have taken Betty over Veronica any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Ronnie has always been portrayed in an unflattering way as being high maintenance and self-centered. etty has always been the logical choice - Betty, Gwen, Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island. Not sure I would have taken MJ or Black Cat given a choice. that's why Gwen's death was so tragic and painful. She was The One.

I just can't see this happening. It's like saying that the earth is round and if we sail off into the horizon we'll find new land, new civilizations and we won't fall off the end of the earth. Next thing you know we'll have aliens landing and marrying our women, and high school students infected with radiation thinking that they can measure up and maintain supermodels. Some absolutes need to be maintained!
