-Oh, Jughead, how you are my favourite. I think Jug appealed to me as a kid because I, too, hated dames (cooties, and all). Nowadays, he's just spectacular for so many OTHER reasons aside from horrible misogyny. His backstory (revealed in the early 90s) is utterly fascinating: he had a childhood crush on a little girl named Joani Jummp, and it broke his heart when she moved away. So to this day, he keeps her picture in his wallet, reminding himself that love only brings pain, and the simpler world of food is so much more rewarding. This is DEEP STUFF for an Archie book, people. Frickin' Daredevil has a lamer origin story than that! This allows him to be the "Straight Man" to Heterosexual Life Partner Archie the Girl-Crazy, despite being a comparative goofball with a famously odd dress sense.
-About the hat: Kids actually ONCE DRESSED LIKE THAT, cutting up their father's old discarded fedoras into jagged-edged beanies- oftentimes, it symbolized that the wearer was a mechanic. Nowadays, Juggie is the only person in the universe still wearing one. The "S" Sweater is more mysterious- another storyline by the same artist & writer as the "Joani" one that had the Jones family moving away featured Jug ALMOST telling Archie the secret of the "S", only to have it revealed at the last second that the Jones family WASN'T moving after all.
-Jughead's relationships are varied and complex. With Archie, Jug tries to rein in his excesses (and vice-versa), keeping him on a path away from girls (especially Veronica). Jug, as stated, feels that women bring only trouble, so he tries to protect his good buddy. Plus, women leave Archie with no time or money for Jugs. With Veronica, Jug has his worst rival, and she can't stand the slob. Reggie is even worse, being a prankster with the target often on Jughead, so they have a massive prank war going. With Betty (as I've gone into before) we have a very interesting and unique partnership, where if Jughead tries to push ANY girl on Arch, it's Betty. It helps that she's one of the top cooks in Riverdale. The adults tend to view him differently. The teachers admit he's intelligent, but hate his laziness and slovenly behavior. Pop Tate loves his service, but hates his tab. The only one who loves him unconditionally is Hot Dog.
-Jughead and Women: Like I said, he rejects women. Most of the time. However, the same strip that introduced his backstory also brought Joani Jummp BACK to Riverdale, at the exact same time Jughead got a crush on ANOTHER woman (named Debbie). So Jughead now all of a sudden had not only conflicted feelings, rejecting his old food-only days, but had TWO women to pick from. Oh, the IRONY was sweet. These remarkably adult, morose stories are easily my favourite Archie strips of all time, dealing with irony, sadness, misanthropy, love, hate, rivalry and indecision. Of course, Jug and those girls resulted in some ignoring of poor Big Ethel, who up to this point had been a Gonk-ish hideous trollbeast who was always chasing Juggie in one of the series' longest running gags. To avoid hurting her feelings (he claims to hate all women, but all of a sudden he's got TWO? The CAD.), she was written out for a while.
-Circa a couple years later, both Joani & Debbie were written out (*sob*) and never heard from again, as we all know that in Archie Comics: Status Quo IS GOD. Still, though, it was nice while it lasted. Honestly, the only bad thing I can say about that whole thing was that the girls were kind of Flat Characters. No outstanding characteristics beyond being in love with Jughead, major flaws, etc.
-Jughead is one of the odd ones to stat up. He's a worse fighter and weaker than Archie unless a Rich Dark-Haired Person is invovled (Reggie fits the bill), but his wall-to-wall Complications can give him a TON of Hero Points in any encounter. He's got lower Abilities than most of the gang (but is pretty high in Wisdom for THIS group), but makes up for them with Betty-like skill at various things. He's knowledgeable on all things Food-related, is a great Drummer, and has various investigative skills picked up from Archie. Hot Dog as a Sidekick isn't really a boost, as he's got lower stats than your common Wolf across the board (despite being nearly as intelligent as some people- and MORESO than Big Moose)- I'm not giving him his giant Super-Science Dog House that he had in that crack-induced "Archie" period that involved the R/C Racers, Jughead's Diner and Time Police, but he's still pretty bright- able to understand and react to people accordingly.
-Jughead, like Archie, gets honest-to-God powers. He can run like the wind if food is involved (or Big Ethel is chasing him)- so he can blast off at Speed 2 if he sees a "Pop Tate's Special" sign or something like that. He is totally 100% immune to a single Interaction- Seduction. No woman can properly seduce him (one time, a cousin of Ronnie's decided to "test" Archie's loyalty to Ron by attempting to seduce him... mistaking Juggie for Arch, she left frustrated a few minutes later after putting on her absolutely Fanservicey display ever going "That boy would be safe in a HAREM!"), which makes him the sole possessor of that ability in all Archie Comics. Last of all is his Matter-Eater power. Jughead has frequently proven able to consume ANY amount of edible matter (he once prepared for a Hamburger Eating Contest by eating 50 burgers earlier in the day) no matter what- easily giving him a Power- but he doesn't get any of the Immunities or Non-Edible Eating powers that it normally bestows, meaning he pays the first 5 pp, then pays 1 for the next four.
