Sharknado vs ArchieBetty and Veronica - Shall we sing Dead Duck Archie from Wheres Archie

Archie Comics

Always from Riverdale, always stuck in the middle between warring best-friends Veronica and Betty, and always best pal to Jughead, the stomach-centered friend with a crown-cap. Archie doesn't change, always modulating from one decade to the next.

Archie's first appearance was in Pep Comics #22, published Dec 22, 1941. The story was drawn by Bob Montana and written by Vic Bloom. The characters were created by comic book publisher John Goldwater.

More Coverage at Variety: Betty and Jughead Cast

“Riverdale” is set in the present day and follows Archie and his friends attempt to survive small-town life. Reinhart’s Betty Cooper is the ideal daughter with a crush on Archie, her best friend, who gets sick of being picture perfect and turns to her new friend Veronica for advice. Sprouse’s Jughead Jones is the former best friend of Archie’s who is still prickly about what has come between them."
