Goldwater and artist Bob Montana [1] in collaboration with writer Vic Bloom, [2] [3] is the main character in the Archie Comics franchise, including the long-running Archie Andrews radio series, a syndicated comic strip, The Archie ShowArchie’s Weird Mysteriesand Riverdale.

Archie is portrayed by KJ Apa in Riverdale. He is the only child of Mary and Fred Andrews. His father works as a mid-level business executive. His earlier life is revealed in the “Little Archie” stories when he had a dog named Spotty. Archie lives in Riverdalewhere he attends Riverdale High School. Archie is a typical small-town teenager. His main crush is Veronica Lodgebut he is also fond of Betty Cooperforming the love triangle driving many of the comic’s plot lines.

Mary and Fred Andrews are of Scottish descent. Archie’s paternal grandfather, Andy Andrews, immigrated to the United States from Scotland and befriended Moose Mason ‘s Russian ancestor, who had emigrated at the same time. Archie has been depicted wearing the traditional kilt of his ancestors and playing bagpipes but not very well.

The Little Archie series, published from through the mids, chronicles the adventures of pre-teen Archie and his friends while in elementary school. The revival of the Life with Archie series chronicles two alternate, parallel story lines in which Archie marries both Veronica and Betty.

The love triangle between Veronica, Archie, and Betty became the hallmark of the Archie stories since the character was created more than 70 years ago. In Archie’s debut, when he was nicknamed Chick, he was trying to impress Betty Cooper. When Veronica Lodge moves to Riverdale, however, he switched his attention to her, making Betty both angry and jealous.

She began competing with Veronica for his affection. The problem is that Archie reciprocates both girls’ feelings for him.

Archie (comic book) – Wikipedia

He and Betty date frequently, and he can always count on Betty to lift his ego by showering him with affection. Betty loves Archie, but he frequently takes her for granted. He often thinks of her more as a close friend and confidant; he likes it that he can use her as a back-up when he does not have a date with Veronica. He dislikes it when Betty dates other boys, wanting her to stay available as his second choice.

Archie is married to Betty in Archie Marries Betty: Life with Archie series. Archie considers Veronica to be his girlfriend. Archie is always fighting for her affection with his rival, Reggie Mantleand occasionally other boys. Veronica keeps Archie guessing, never letting him take her for granted.


Betty, on the other hand, clearly lets Archie know she adores him. With Veronica playing hard to get and Betty playing easy to get, Archie fights to keep Veronica, knowing that devoted Betty will always be available for him. A third love interest is a wealthy red-headed girl named Cheryl Blossom. At first, she was deemed too sexual and a bit promiscuous and was taken out of the series, but due to her popularity, she was brought back in Love Showdowna four-part mini-series in which Archie attempts to make a decision between Cheryl, Betty, and Veronica.

Despite the efforts of both Cheryl and Veronica, he surprisingly chose Betty, much to her delight.

Jughead Jones has been Archie’s best friend ever since childhood. When Jughead first came to Riverdale, he was in a bad mood and tended to dismiss Archie. However, Archie, of good heart, tried to cheer up Jughead and the two have been inseparable ever since.

Jughead wears a trademark clubhouse beanie a Depression-era style of makeshift hatwear, crafted from an inverted fedora with a scallop-cut brim, and decorated with assorted pinbacks and an inscrutable, closed-eyelid expression.

Often Jughead has to help Archie out from a tricky situation. Jughead usually knows when Archie’s ideas will not work, but is powerless to avoid getting involved. Reggie Mantle is Archie’s constant romantic and athletic rival. Each often makes divest to separate the other from Veronica, occasionally exhibiting physical violence, archied both have won their fair share of scrapes with each other.
