…and to add insult to injury, he gets martyred to make a freaking political statement:
For the fans of Archie Andrews, his impending death marks a fitting end for the famous comic book do-gooder.
The 73-year-old red-headed character will die in Wednesday’s installment of “Life with Archie” when he intervenes in an assassination attempt on senator Kevin Keller, Archie Comics’ first openly gay character who is pushing for more gun control in Riverdale….
Kevin first joined Veronica Lodge, Betty Cooper, Jughead Jones and Reggie Mantle in Archie Comics in 2010. He later appeared in his own solo title. In “Life with Archie,” he’s a married military veteran and newly elected senator who’s pushing for the gun control after his husband was involved in a shooting.
A military veteran pushing for more gun control. Special. I wonder if “Life With Archie” ever talked about the vitriolic reaction Kevin Keller would have gotten from other veterans for doing such. You know, just to be accurate about the whole thing. And I bet Archie gets killed in a gun-free zone, too. Something about those just seems to make them magnets for killers. I wonder what it is?
