    Yeah, it was pretty cool. But hugely gimmicky.

    Oh, and they did do a slight gender swap in Archie 516 already, but this was just Archie's mom imagining what it would be like if he were a girl.

    I honestly wouldn't be surprised if there were more examples.
    Here's the deal, I'm the best there is. I wake up in the morning and I urinate excellence. And nobody can hang with my stuff. I'm just a big hairy American winning machine.

    I'm very humble, too.

    Somewhere in our vast array of Archie comics is a story where Betty and Veronica meet their spear counterparts, Benny and Jon. Does that sound like another example?
    It also showed a female Archie (Angela Archer IIRC), but only for one panel, and only in Betty's and Veronica's thought balloon (after Benny and Jon say they have so much in common, they argued over the same redheaded girl in middle school).

    This was the worst gimmick of Archie. They turned Jughead into a "punk."

    Again...not as bad as it looks on the surface. Except for the hair. And we got Sassy out of the deal, so...a win to me.

    THIS WEEK: It's a war on the media and Trawn and company are caught in the middle in Part 2 of a brand-new Electric Wonderland incident! Aren't you glad real life isn't this insane?

    It's not like she became a permanent member of the cast, though, probably because it's nearly impossible to be more dated than Sassy Thrasher, gnarly skateboarding 80s punkette.



    Not to say she was a bad character, I like her spunkiness, but the faddish ones aren't built to last. Same way with Crystal the New Age Girl and Aerobic Liz. This is the only picture I can find of them.



    And then there's Eyeda, but she's not so much gimmicky as terrifyingly insane.
