Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with over 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in comics in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!

This week we're taking a look at Riverdale's best friends and bitterest rivals, Betty and Veronica! For decades, the dynamic that has fueled the engine of Archie Comics has been the relationship between these two young ladies, as they go to great lengths to one-up each other and catch the attention of America's typical teenager, Archie Andrews. In this video, we explore the history of Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge, from the real life humans who inspired them to their various family members to how at various times each of them has been a magically foretold slayer of vampires.
