Back in January, a new show called #Riverdale hit the CW, and two groups of people probably had two different reactions. One group was full of young adults and teens who absolutely loved the show, and it's become a hit, thanks to them. But then there's the slightly older group, who grew up reading about Archie, #Jughead, and all the trouble they got into. Some of them might not have been happy about this new Archie universe.
This groovy list is for both of those groups, but especially the old(er) folks.
Archie #comics were some of yours truly's favorite reading material growing up, so here's some #nostalgia for me, myself, and everyone like me! I present to you, five extremely wierd moments from the #Archie comics that you most likely won't be seeing in the show.
5. Those poor guys!
They look like Archie beat them off good! This is one funky scene that most likely won't make the cut. There are probably going to be some off-color jokes or double entendre, but nothing this wacky.
4. Hiram Lodge, is that a roll of quarters in your pocket?
He really does look stressed out at whatever he's doing to cause Betty's strange sensation. Shame on you, Hiram! It would, however, make for an interesting twist on the show.
3. Riverdale gets punished
I'll just leave that there. Archie almost gets ganked by The Punisher. Crossovers can be fun, but come on now.
2. Jughead becomes a zombie?
And he eats Big Ethel! It was just a part of the Afterlife with Archie comic series, but still...weird. Unless they do a #crossover with iZombie, then nope.
1. THEY. SHOT. ARCHIE.
This is the comic weirdness to end all comic weirdness. Archie gets shot and killed taking an assassin's bullet for his friend. SO glad I had stopped reading these things by the time this story arc came out.
Besides, there's no way Riverdale is going to off the main character...is there?
What are the odds that any of these things will happen in the show? Let me know in the comments!
