Hiram Lodge (Archie)(New Riverdale) - Comic Book DB
Bio: Mr. Lodge made his debut in the second issue. He and his family moved to Riverdale so he could run for mayor. His rivalry with Archie immediately begins after Archie accidentally breaks down Mr. Lodge's unfinished mansion, although Mr. Lodge was unaware it was Archie due to only seeing a glimpse of his face before Archie ran away in fear.. Thanks to Reggie Mantle, Mr. Lodge found out that Archie was the one responsible for the destruction of his mansion. In contrast to the old Mr. Lodge who tolerated Archie, Mr. Lodge didn't tolerate Archie at all, and forbade Veronica from seeing hin for a long time. After Mr. Lodge lost, he moved away and sent Veronica to Switzerland. He even went as far as to cut off all connections from Riverdale including blocking Veronica's email and phone from Riverdale. However, after seeing how Veronica had changed and became less ruthless, for better or for worse, Hiram decided to send Veronica back to Riverdale.
It's highly likely that Hiram allows Veronica to see Archie. However, Mr. Lodge's and Archie's relationship is still vague at best since they had not spoken to each other ever since Hiram first announced he was moving Veronica away.
