Michael Uslan to script Pureheart the Powerful for Archie

From Archie Comics

Archie Comics made headline news this summer when it was announced that Michael Uslan (executive producer of "The Dark Knight", "Batman Begins") would be scripting the "Archie marries Veronica" story. The news was covered in newspapers around the world and was featured in television segments from "The Rachel Maddow Show," the "Today" show, "The View" and "Live with Regis & Kelly," to name just a few! Both David Letterman and Jay Leno included the Archie and Veronica wedding in their monologues!

Early next year Archie Comics and Michael Uslan will begin their next exciting project together with the re-imagining of Pureheart the Powerful (Archie as a superhero, if you recall), in a series of five specials.

"We're not just talking ONE superhero here!" Usland says. "Archie will be joined by Betty as Superteen, Jughead as Captain Hero, Reggie as Evilheart Jr., and wait'll you see the super-versions of Veronica, Dilton and Moose! Surprises galore are just ahead!"

He continues, "Pureheart and Pureheart's Emergency Patrol will debut in a series of five one-shot comic books that bring back to life the five historic superhero titles that launched Archie Comics, originally known as MLJ Comics, back in the Golden Age of the 1930s and 40s."
