History: (Dark Avengers I#10 (fb) - BTS) - To escape her roommate Veronica's ex-boyfriend, George Washington University student Betty Simpson traveled with Veronica across the country.

(Dark Avengers I#10) - Stopping in the small town of Dinosaur, Colorado, Betty and Veronica visited the Dino Burger restaurant to use the bathroom. Informed that the bathroom was in the back and was only for paying customers, Betty ordered two cups of coffee while Veronica went to the bathroom. When Betty asked how much she owed for the coffee, a nearby man whispered for her to get out of town. Confused, Betty asked if he was talking to her and then asked if something was wrong before everyone in the restaurant turned a gray color. Terrified, Betty called for Veronica as their car seemingly disappeared outside. After Betty was missing for two days, her Secretary of State father contacted Norman Osborn and requested he look into the disappearance in Dinosaur, unaware of the molecule-manipulating Molecule Man's presence in the town.

Comments: Created by Brian Michael Bendis and Mike Deodato.

I don't think it's just a coincidence that the two college students that disappeared in Dinosaur, Colorado were named Betty and Veronica. This seems like an obvious homage to the Archie Comics characters Betty and Veronica.
