Archie and Valerie are going to reconnect in Archie #633 was visit a possible future where they end up marrying and having a cute little daughter! According to Comics Alliance, their romantic relationship is a natural development for these two characters:
Archie and Valerie... build their relationship on a mutual love of music and, in Archie's case, the fact that he falls in love with beautiful girls regardless of race. As an isolated idea, it meant a lot, but in elevating it to this level, their relationship is being treated as something just as valid as Archie's relationships with Betty and Veronica. The addition of a daughter, something that hasn't been explored in the Betty or Veronica marriages and something that has traditionally been even more controversial in American history, goes even further -- in a good way.The "controversy" over Archie's and Valerie's marriage and family got me thinking about some of my favorite interracial comic book romances. I'm not talking about purple alien brides seducing human champions of goodness. I'm talking about comic book romances between people of different races. At first I thought it wouldn't be too difficult to come up with a bunch of interracial couplings, but I really struggled to identify enough favorite. So maybe this topic is more controversial than I'd originally imagined!
Without further ado, I'd like to present my Favorite Five Interracial Comic Book Romances!:
As things usually happen, the "Age of X" storyline resolved itself and the X-Men were returned back to their old lives -- except that they now found themselves with conjoined memories of their real lives and their "Age of X" lives. Different characters coped as best they could. Unfortunately, Cyclops and Frenzy struggled to cope with their "Age of X" romance. Cyclops wanted nothing more than to forget about his romance with the villain. Frenzy couldn't forget their love for each other. Eventually, she left the X-Men's Utopia base in order to put some space between her and the X-Men's commander-in-chief. Their relationship will likely never resurface. On the other hand, it created great motivation for Marvel to create a wonderfully unique villain-to-hero transformation storyline that continues to unfold in X-Men Legacy every month.
