    How DOES he do it? Pure EVIL, brother... pure evil.

(Comic book tip: If you want to be a superhero, don't wear a green and purple costume. Those are the colors of PURE EVIL!)

Wow, a rare Vicky Mantle appearance.

Right there, she has the personality to be the problem parent if Mark Waid wants Reggie to have one.

Problem parent? She's his mother -- of course she thinks the world of him. Let's just say she's got a less than objective picture of the real Reggie Mantle. It's a good bet he doesn't pull any of that underhanded crap on her and act like a conceited braggart around her.  All she's seeing here is Reggie as a talented writer/actor/director, something she can be proud of.

None of the other parents would react that way if their kid put on a play like that, come on.

None of them are star athletes with a roomful of trophies, either. All right, so he's got he snowed. She doesn't REALLY know her son. Not a crime. Yeah, maybe if she'd been reading the comics along with the rest of us, she'd know better. I have to assume she doesn't know Betty and Veronica from a hole in the wall. When have you ever seen the whole gang hanging out at Reggie's house?

She must at least know Veronica, she's in a well known family, she often calls Reggie's house and in some stories they've talked and a few times you see a picture of her in Reggie's room. Anyway I was talking about the fact that Reggie's play is a big ego trip that insults another student (even if I love it), no matter what she doesn't know about Reggie already the play wouldnt get that reaction from a normal parent. I know this is applying real life analysis to a silly cartoon plot but that's what the reboots/tv show etc. are doing so going with them Mrs. Mantle would be a better choice for problem parent than her husband since we already know he's a nice guy. I'm not saying they SHOULD make her that but they seem like they want to give Reggie some kind of troubled home life. If they do I'd probably like her more if they developed her that way, the problem characters are always my favorite.

I think these pages support my idea that Mrs. Mantle would be a better problem parent, if anyone is being neglectful of Reggie here it's her. Mr. Mantle is there for him (he's not sitting down to dinner with him but how many parents do that with their teens) like he is in most stories, we see much less of Reggie with his mother.

This is funny, they should do a dream sequence story about Jughead marrying Veronica for her money.

Well, look at what you're showing right there. Mrs. Mantle is away traveling on business. That gives you the impression that she's likely the parent that isn't home a lot, and is not as involved in Reggie's day to day life. She knows he's the RHS athletic star, and that he sometimes dates Veronica. Maybe she knows he's dated Betty a few times, too. What does she know about Archie? Probably not much, beyond what Reggie might have told her. There's every possibility that she dotes on him, because to all ostensible appearances she should be a proud parent. He's likely on the fast track to an athletic scholorship. Because she's often away traveling on business, she has less opportunities to be critical of him, and probably values their time together even more. He probably gets good enough grades not to give his parents grief, and his detentions must be kept to the level that they don't cause a lot of parent-teacher meetings.

For all we know Reggie might behave like a perfect gentleman around her, and isn't even really trying to "pull the wool over her eyes". So all she really knows is she's been invited to the school to see a play that her son wrote, directed, and stars in. She hasn't even seen the play yet and she's already proud of him for that. Is she going there as a drama critic, thinking "Well, we'll just see if it's any good!" No, she's just thrilled that it's another laurel wreath to add to his achievements along with his many sports trophies. You think she's sitting there, trying to find cracks in his suspect facade? Trying to figure out what the play's about, or what it means? Is it a satire, or some kind or ironic humor? "Who knows with kids these days?" Of course not, she can't see any of that, because she has no reason to look for his motives, or to want to believe anything bad about him.

Try to imagine reading that story as if it were the first Archie story you'd ever read, like you'd never even heard of Archie, and knew nothing (or next to nothing) about any of the characters, except for a couple of select pieces of info about Reggie - he's a good-looking kid, and he's Riverdale's star athlete, with a roomful of trophies; he dates Veronica once in a while, and has maybe dated Betty a couple of times as well. Then read it again, and tell me what prior information you need to bring with you to reading the story that makes interpreting that play "obvious". And then realize that you don't want to believe anything bad about Reggie going into it.
