Riverdale is not a typical superhero show, but rather a teen drama series based on the characters from the Archie Comics. The show premiered in 2017 and has since gained a massive following for its dark and mysterious plotlines, intriguing characters, and stunning visuals.

The story follows a group of high school students in the small town of Riverdale, including Archie Andrews, Betty Cooper, Veronica Lodge, and Jughead Jones. As the series progresses, they become embroiled in a series of interconnected mysteries and crimes that threaten the safety and stability of their community.

While the show doesn’t feature superheroes in the traditional sense, some characters have abilities or skills that border on the superhuman. For example, Betty is a skilled detective who can solve even the most challenging cases, while Veronica has a natural gift for negotiation and manipulation.

Overall, Riverdale is a compelling and addictive series that combines elements of mystery, drama, and romance. Its unique blend of genres has made it a fan favorite, and it continues to captivate audiences around the world.

Also, don’t forget to:

While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.

Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.

You can help by donating to local abortion funds. To find out where to donate for each state, visit

If you or someone you know needs help, or if you want to get more involved, here are 5 resources:

1. Shout Your Abortion is a campaign to normalize abortion.

2. Don’t Ban Equality is a campaign for companies to take a stand against abortion restrictions.

3. has information about where to find clinics.

4. provides early at-home abortion pills that you can keep in your medicine cabinet. And five.

5. has a collection of these resources and more.
