8 Reasons Why Jughead's Skate Punk Makeover Was a Huge Mistake - Topless Robot - Nerd news, humor and self-loathing. I don't have any of the issues this guy has. Yes, it was weird, but the character had just come off Jughead's Diner, and to me soy burgers and giant robots appearing for no reason seemed normal in comparison. I know most of the "new" characters were token minorities meant to fulfill a PC quota and make Daryl feel good about himself. I don't care. They worked for me. "Yowza" was not a Jughead catchphrase. "Yowza" was a Daryl Edelman catchphrase that he just integrated into all his books, because.....Daryl, that's why. And EVERYONE hated the hair. They got hate mail during the comic's run about the hair. They had to change it back as quickly as the backlog would permit it. He wisely tiptoed around Sassy. Good move. You mess with Sassy, you mess with me.
