Re: Lantis or Eagle > Betty or Veronica
Yeah, but in those stories, isn't the asshole hero usually a
monster? He's really hot, or really talented, or really brilliant, or really,
If the asshole boyfriend/husband IS a boring schlub, then the fantasy usually comes from her
him (either permanently or temporarily) for someone who is many times more AWESOME and also hot.
Archie isn't good-looking. He's also not a brilliant athlete, a talented artist, or a genius student. Neither does he have a "beautiful soul." He's a horny scrawny freckled kid who is consistently mediocre-at-best in all things. I can actually understand the Mistreated Maiden fantasy (though you're right, it's not my personal kick), but why would anybody want to fantasize about being mistreated by someone DULL?
