In a way, Hedy was Veronica to Patsy Walker's Betty. Patsy was, of course, later integrated into the Marvel Universe as Hellcat. Outside of a cameo outside Reed and Sue's wedding, was Hedy ever brought into the main Marvel continuity? No idea of the artist here, although the last page looks very Bill Elderish! Maybe?
The last Marvel comic book I bought was a 2004 Avengers Annual. In it there was a big welcome-home party for Hellcat(Patsy Walker)that was arranged by Patsy's old chum(???),Hedy Wolfe.
Hedy is in the new "Patsy Walker A.K.A. Hellcat" series, which is amazingly true to the spirit of their Golden/Silver Age humor comics while still incorporating the super-hero stuff. Oh, and Tubs is gay now, and also, not actually called Tubs because 2016 (though his old nickname is acknowledged.)
Also, I'd say Patsy had at least as much in common with Archie as she ever did with Betty, who's most milquetoast qualities made up the whole of Nan Brown's personality. Ditto Hedy as Veronica + Reggie.
