Starting a new thing where I cover the more positive sides of comics, as opposed to my Cringeworthy Comicbook Moments many angles of squick.

First up! A bit of news that seems to have been overshadowed by the Watchmen Prequel news...

It seems that in yet another of Archie's alternate futures (blimey, he's going to be edging in on the X-Men's turf at this rate, with a post-apocalypic Age of Moose or something) it seems that he'll be marrying and having a child with Valerie from Josie and the Pussy Cats.

The two first had a brief relationship back in 2010, where they bonded over their mutual love of music, leading to the company's first interracial kiss.

Over at Comics Alliance they cover the subject of Archie and their new progressive view in more detail,

I know that this is at least partially a publicity stunt (the other companies don't seem to make much fuss when it comes to mixed race relationships, they just happen as characterisation or stories requires, for example Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, Walley West and Linda Park etc. etc.) but still, it's nice to see Archie catch up with the 21st century a bit at a time, so I thought that this might be a good place to start.

Moose needs to marry Dilton. The two of them had a much better dynamic than Moose and Midge.


Of course, the Age of Moose could be tipped off by Dilton's death, unintentionally caused by a time traveling January Andrews in an attempt to ensure her own birth happens. Without Dilton around to curb Moose's more violent tendencies, the gentle giant soon turns to evil, creating a much darker Riverdale than the one we know and love.

"Moose needs to marry Dilton. The two of them had a much better dynamic than Moose and Midge."

I would go for that and be awesome for the scenario to come true. :)
