Fred Proposes to Daphne in SCOOBY APOCALYPSE #24!

DC Comics just played out the most understated, under-reported marriage proposal of two major comic book heroes. Ever. I mean, forget about Kitty Pryde and Colossus. Why isn't anyone talking about how Fred proposed to Daphne in SCOOBY APOCALYPSE #24??

You might remember how Scooby and the Gang set up stakes in an abandoned shopping mall last issue. Except that the mall wasn't quite abandoned. There are two factions of monsters (nicknamed the "Consumerites") who live in the Mears and CJ Nickel stores. Twice daily, they all race out into the mall and kill each other. Our group is waiting for the Consumerites to kill each other off and then take over the mall completely.

Except that Cliffy realized in this latest issue that the Consumerites aren't really reducing in numbers, even as more and more bodies litter the main floor of the mall. Daphne and Fred decided to sneak into CJ Nickel to see what's happening inside the store.

Always the master of good timing, Fred tells Daphne that he's only going to chase her so long and that she needs to make a choice once and for all. And then he proposes to her!

And she said Yes! (After scowling at him...)

Who said there's no romance after the apocalypse?
