Superman is a fictional Comic book Superhero widely considered to be one of the most recognized of such characters and an American Cultural icon None remained popular. In 1941, a teenage humor strip called Archie began as a new back-up feature in Pep, replacing Madam Satan. Striking a popular nerve with emerging youth culture, Archie and his gang were such a hit that MLJ changed its name to Archie Comics in 1946.
In the 1950s and 1960s, cartoonist Dan DeCarlo ceased work on Atlas Comics' Millie the Model and brought his influential style to the Archie Comics universe.

The Archie characters have been continually successful in other mediums since the comic's inception. The Archie Andrews radio program debuted May 31, 1943, and ran on various networks until September 5, 1953.

Several attempts have been made to revive MLJ's original superhero line, without success. Today, Archie Comics largely ignores its superheroes. Occasionally, some appear in their comics, if only for the sake of maintaining a trademark.
The February 1962 issue of Harvey Kurtzman's Help! magazine featured a parody of the Archie characters in its Goodman Beaver story, Goodman Goes Playboy, written by Kurtzman and illustrated by frequent collaborator, Will Elder (the magazine itself hit newsstands on December of 1960). Harvey Kurtzman ( October 3, 1924, Brooklyn New York – February 21, 1993) was a U Help! (1960-1965 was a magazine published by James Warren. It was Harvey Kurtzman 's longest-running Magazine project after leaving William "Will" Elder ( September 22, 1921 – May 15, 2008) was an American Illustrator and Comic book artist Attorneys for Archie Comics filed suit shortly thereafter, for copyright infringement. 'Copyright infringement' (or copyright violation) is the unauthorized use of material that is covered by Copyright law in a manner that violates An agreement was reached in March 1964, with $1000 in damages paid, and an apology was issued.
Later attempts to reprint the Goodman Beaver story, with names and artwork altered by Kurtzman and Elder to minimize similarities to Archie characters and trademarks, were again met with threatened legal action by Archie Comics.
However, according to a May 2008 posting on The Comics Journal website: "It resulted in waves of lawyers raining upon the strip’s creators, ultimately leading to Kurtzman and Elder handing the copyright to the story over to Archie and signing an agreement promising never to reproduce it again. The Comics Journal, often abbreviated TCJ, is a US magazine of news and criticism pertaining to Comic books and strips Some 40 years or so later, Gary Groth or someone close to him discovered that Archie had forgotten to renew the copyright to the strip, and that it had fallen into the public domain. Gary Groth (born 1954 is an American Comic book editor, Publisher, and Critic. "
As a result, Goodman Goes Playboy can now be reprinted by anyone, anywhere, at anytime, since it no long is copyright by anyone.
Ironically, despite the above legal wrangling, Archie Comics never took any action against Kurtzman, Elder nor publisher William Gaines for the 1954 Mad Magazine story Starchie, which has been reprinted numerous times. William Maxwell Gaines ( March 1, 1922 &ndash June 3, 1992) (more frequently referred to as Bill Gaines) was the publisher and co-editor Mad is a monthly American Humor Magazine founded by editor Harvey Kurtzman and publisher William Gaines in 1952

Events 1581 - Francis Drake completes a circumnavigation of the world and is knighted by Elizabeth I. Year 2003 ( MMIII) was a Common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar.

Archie is set in the small town of Riverdale. The state, or even the general location of the town, is unclear. It is known, however, that John L. Goldwater attended Horace Mann School, which is located in the Riverdale section of the Bronx in New York City. The Horace Mann School is an independent College preparatory school in New York City. Riverdale (population approximately 45000 according to the 2000 U The City of New York In the early years of Archie, Riverdale was located in Massachusetts, with Mr. Lodge being a senator for that state, but this is no longer considered canon. This article is not about Literary canons of influential works of fiction but about the concept of a canon which defines the world of a particular fictional series
For the comics' 60th anniversary in 2002, several geographical and historical hints to the location of Riverdale were printed in every digest issue. At the end of the year, it was revealed that the hints point to Riverdale being located in the "Missouri area," but that officially Riverdale has no location. Missouri ( or) is a state in the Midwestern region of the United States bordered by Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee It is essentially located wherever the reader wants it to be. Indeed, the geography of Riverdale is far too inconsistent for it to be any one specific location (see below).
Cheryl Blossom: Appeared even Richer and snobbier than Veronica in the beginning, but now here father works for Mr. Lodge. Competes with Betty and Veronica for Archie
Of all the parents, it is Veronica's father and Archie's parents who appear most frequently.
The other parents appear less frequently:
From time to time the writers would drop in real people and locations as elements in a story. This is a list of minor recurring characters who have appeared in the Archie Comics universe
Aside from very basic characteristics, many of the characters' traits, and even personalities, can change from strip to strip, usually depending on the writer.
In certain strips, Betty does not mind being Archie's second choice as long as she gets a date with him on occasion, but in other strips she is insulted and upset when Archie considers her a second choice. In addition, sometimes Veronica dominates Archie's love interest and Betty plays a distant second fiddle, while other times both girls seem to have Archie split 50/50 in a heated love triangle. Even though most of the gang have one or more main love interests, they often date other people who appear only once.
There are also inconsistencies surrounding the gang's personality traits. Reggie Mantle is usually portrayed as being part of the gang (sometimes mean and rude, but deep down really a good person), but in other strips he an outsider and an antagonist to Archie and the gang.
In some issues, Moose Mason is portrayed as too dumb to solve the simplest math problem, but in other episodes he can complete tests if he applies himself. A few stories justify this by stating that he has a learning disability and just has to try harder, with the students being very kind and supportive. Midge, Moose's girlfriend, is usually respectful of Moose's limited intelligence, but has been known to make comments suggesting otherwise.
Archie is sometimes depicted as a complete hopeless klutz of only average intelligence, while in other stories he is highly athletic and/or intelligent. While rarely mean-spirited, he sometimes thinks nothing of dating other girls behind Betty or Veronica's backs and even lying about it, while in other appearances, he is scrupulously extremely honest and extremely moral (particularly in the Christian comics produced by Spire).
Betty sometimes appears traditionally feminine, as she can be seen cooking, sewing and cheerleading. Other stories depict her as more of a tomboy, content to wear sporty clothes, go fishing or fix cars. While she definitely has some traits associated with both, there is inconsistency as to which is more prominent.
One of the most ambiguous things in the Archie universe is the geographical location, climate and size of Riverdale. Sometimes it is portrayed as being within driving distance of a beach; at other times there seems to be no beach, when the gang say that they have nowhere to go on a hot day.
Mountains are sometimes said to surround or be located near Riverdale, making it appear to be located in a valley. At other times, the surrounding terrain is more level, and occupied by farm land and woods. One story shows Archie and his father buying lobsters from an old fisherman (lobsters are more common in the northeastern United States).
Rivers and lakes in the area may vary. Normally, the beach (when it appears) is on the ocean, but at least one story declares that the beach is on a lake with no other land in sight. This matches the description of some very large bodies of water, such as the Great Lakes (there is at least one real Riverdale in that area). The Laurentian Great Lakes are a chain of freshwater lakes located in eastern North America, on the Canada–United States border. Riverdale is a village in Cook County, Illinois, United States.
Snow is very common in the winter, which suggests that Riverdale is in a northern state. Often the gang will be seen on seemingly impromptu and convenient ski holidays. However, beaches are very warm in the summer, and heat waves are occasional. One story has Betty, Archie and Jughead trying to escape a tornado, which would suggest Riverdale is in the Midwest.
In one story, Riverdale is shown on a small map as being in about the same place as Des Moines, Iowa. The State of Iowa ( is a state in the Midwestern region of the United States of America. One plot in the 1990s involved Jughead possibly being forced to move to Ohio, in which Betty, looking at a map, comments that Ohio is extremely far away. Ohio ( is a Midwestern state of the United States. As part of the Great Lakes region, Ohio has long been a cultural and geographical crossroads In the live-action film adaptation (Archie: To Riverdale and Back Again), Riverdale is explicitly portrayed as being located in California. Archie To Riverdale and Back Again (released on video as Archie Return to Riverdale) was a live-action Television movie produced
Despite Riverdale seeming to be an idyllic small town, occasional stories have taken part in a rough, seemingly crime-ridden part of town. Tall buildings sometimes make Riverdale seem larger than it is supposed to be.
(It should be noted however, that "Riverdale" too is an actual town in Bronx County, New York, a few miles away from the actual headquarters of the publishers of Archie Comics in Mamaroneck. Mamaroneck New York may refer to two places in the United States Mamaroneck (town New York, a town in Westchester County Mamaroneck (village This does not necessarily imply that it is the "Riverdale" in the comics. )
In Tales from Riverdale Digest#28, "The Missing Monument" storyline centers around the statue of Sybil Ladington [sic]. The mispelling of Ludington may be intentional, but the real Ludington statue is in New York state. Perhaps this clue allows us to pinpoint the location of Riverdale with more accuracy.
Regarding the source of the Lodges' wealth, some stories depict Mr. Lodge as a self-made man who grew up poor or middle-class (thus wanting his daughter to study in a public high school to avoid making her a snob), while others depict the Lodge family as having a long history of wealth and famous, wealthy relatives. One comic's punchline ends when Archie is trying to find out how Mr. Lodge gained his wealth with Veronica answering for him: "That's easy; when he married Mom she was worth $40,000,000 at the time. "
Each character has numerous relatives who have appeared once and never again. The inside of each character's house is almost always inconsistent, as is the layout of the town. In Archie's Double Digest #165, Archie states that it takes a half-hour to drive from his house to Veronica's. In numerous other strips, Veronica's mansion is within walking distance.
The grade of the main characters usually appears to be Grade 11. In one comic, Miss Grundy says to Archie that when he grows up, he will be a junior in Riverdale High, like he is now, unless he starts studying. In high school, a "junior" is a Grade 11 student, and when their age is given, it is virtually always 16 or 17. However, their grade remains ambiguous.
Once, the class talked with Miss Grundy about their future plans, stating that college is "two years away". When they are on summer vacation, they are always implied to be going to school next year, but it is never mentioned if it will be their last year or not. However, in another story, Archie and Jughead prepare for the prom saying it will be the last time their class will be together, which implies graduation.
Overall, it seems that the writers of the comics have no qualms about changing facts to fit the story even at the expense of continuity. The complete absence of established canon is an often noted aspect of Archie Comics and may be a turn-off to fans of other comics who are accustomed to an established comic universe with strict canon. This article is not about Literary canons of influential works of fiction but about the concept of a canon which defines the world of a particular fictional series
Little Archie comics were originally produced in the 1950s. This series featured the familiar teenagers as Elementary School-age children. It became the longest running alternate universe published by Archie Comics. A number of Little Archie series were produced, and new stories are occasionally published even today.
It introduced a number of characters that had never before existed in the Archie continuity. These included Archie's dog Spotty, Betty's cat Caramel, Betty's older brother Chic and older sister Polly, and new kids Ambrose Pipps and Fangs Fogarty. This made the series more non-canonical. However, around the 1990s, the creators of Archie Comics began to tie Little Archie in to the main continuity by featuring appearances by these characters. Some became recurring characters in the gang's teenage years. Additionally, stories that take place in the main continuity sometimes feature flashbacks to the gang's childhood.
A few contradictions remain between Archie and Little Archie. One is that, in Little Archie, the Riverdale High faculty is the Riverdale Elementary faculty. Archie has established that characters like Mr. Weatherbee have worked at Riverdale High too long to have ever been elementary school teachers when the gang was young.
In the 1980s, the creators experimented with a different art style which made the characters less realistic and less like the art style used in the main continuity. Their heads became unnaturally large, their arms, legs and bodies were disproportionate in length, and their eyes were simply pupil-dots without irises or scleras. However, this was eventually dropped, and Little Archie reverted to its old style.
In 1969, Little Archie inspired a segment within the "Funhouse" segments of The Archie Comedy Hour (which is not the same as the later "Archie's Funhouse" series). The Archie Show was the first in a long line of Saturday morning cartoon Animated series produced by Filmation and based upon Bob Montana This segment however was called "The Little Archies".
