Arzeno illustrates his Marvel PRIDE with their top LGBT 11

As a gay geek blogger I would be COMPLETELY remiss in my duties were I not to share L. Rey Arzeno’s gorgeous illustration of some of of Marvel’s most significant LGBT characters – still missing Graymalkin, Julie Power, Striker, Victoria Hand and Bling. PRIDE month doesn’t start until Friday – but lets get a jump on it.

From Left to right we have: Anole, Shatterstar, Rictor, Karma (with her new cyborg leg hidden), Mystique, Northstar, Daken, Karolina Dean, Xavin, Wiccan and Hulkling.

10 SUPER Significant LGBT Milestones in 2011′s Comics

The DCnU & Marvel really ARE committed to LGBT inclusion! 2011 saw LGBT characters created from scratch, outed, rebooted into a whole new continuity or even resurrected by apologetic writers as 4color LGBT relationships become far more commonplace, even reaching distant places like the 30th century and THE Archie Universe’s perpetually squeeky clean Riverdale.

The top LGBT Stories in Comics 2011

Avengers Academy’s former child star and current famemonger, Striker came out both as gay and as a victim of childhood sexual abuse whose emerging electrical powers killed his pervy bad-touching manager.

The solicited cover for 2012′s Life With Archie revealed that the issue will bring comics first interracial gay military wedding to Riverdale.

The Teen Titans added Bunker, an out and proud new flamboyant young Mexican gay character to the team roster and the DCnU.

After much hype and stalling, Gotham’s resident lipstick lesbian vigilante – Batwoman finally began her own title with the 2011 launch of the DCnU.

The return of Rictor’s mutant seismic powers in the pages of Avengers The Children’s Crusade has resolved the feelings of powerlessness he felt and may impact his romantic relationship with his X-Factor teammate Shatterstar.

Along with a number of former Wildstorm Universe residents, Apollo and Midnighter have been mainstreamed into the DCnU and their relationship will unfold anew in the pages of Stormwatch.

the 2011 4 issue miniseries that followed up Riverdale’s new gay teen, Kevin Keller‘s 2010 Archie Universe debut was so well received that he’ll be getting his own ongoing miniseries in 2012.

James Robinson resurrected gay hero Tasmanian Devil after he realized he’d killed one of the few LGBT heroes in the DCU for a rug joke. The character has yet to surface in the post-Flashpoint DCnU.

A gay relationship between Legion Academy students Powerboy and Gravity Kid was subtly revealed at in the pre-DCnU pages of Adventure Comics – the relationship has yet to be confirmed post Flashpoint.

Shrinking Violet and Lightning Lass were confirmed as girlfriends – but that was pre-Flashpoint. We’re still awaiting confirmation that the relationship has made it into the DCnU.

I composited the above image myself – so please link back if you repost it.

DCnU & Marvel are committed to LGBT Super-Heroes

Both Marvel comics and DC’s “New 52″ show a commitment to inclusion of LGBT characters in some of their best titles. I’ll likely expand and update this post to include more titles, so leave a comment to point out any I left out. If it’s a DC title, sightings should be post relaunch.

DC’s New 52 line up of titles contains a number that prominently feature LGBT characters. Stormwatch chronicles the future relationship between gay Superman and Batman analogues Apollo and The Midnighter. Their story has been told, but never in the DCU proper. Teen Titans will introduce Bunker, a flamboyant gay teen hero. Batwoman follows the costumed adventures of lesbian socialite Kate Kane. The Shade is a new maxi-series set in Opal City and the cast includes bisexual blue alien Mikasl Tomas a.k.a. Starman. No sign of recently resurrected Aussi gay were-hero Tasmanian Devil.

Stormwatch features Apollo and The Midnighter Teen Titans features new flamboyant gay mexican teen Bunker Batwoman features prominant Gotham lesbian socialite Kate Kane a.k.a. Batwoman The SHade maxiseries features bisexual blue alien Mikaal Tomas a.k.a. Starman

Marvel may not have rebooted their entire universe recently, but nonetheless also have a number of high profile titles showcasing LGBT characters. The most popular LGBT characters of the Marvel U would be gay teen Young Avengers… Wiccan and Hulkling. A close second would be gay couple Rictor and Shatterstar from Peter David’s brilliant X-Factor. Daken Akihiro, the tattooed, bisexual bad boy son of Wolverine is fast becoming a fan favorite. Speaking of Wolverine, when he scooped up the X-kids and brought them back-to-school, he included Anole, Graymalkin and Bling. Karma has also stated Weschester is her destination.

Avengers: The Children's Crusade features gay Young Avengers Wiccan and Hulkling as well as X-Factor's gay couple Rictor and Shatterstar X-Factor features gay couple Rictor and Shatterstar Daken: Dark Wolverine features Daken Akahiro - Wolverine's bisexual bad boy son. Wolverine and the X-Men features a number of LGBT mutants: Anole, Graymalkin, Bling and Karma

If you think I forgot about Alpha Flight… not so fast. You may not have heard that news of it’s status as an ongoing title was premature. Alpha Flight is cancelled as of issue #8.

Rictor & Shatterstar’s relationship: Trouble in Paradise?

I know that writers of ongoing stories like comic books or soap operas tend to disrupt “Happily Ever After” as often as possible. But I would have enjoyed a few more happy moments before we started rocking the boat. In X-factor #226, we see both lovers expressing doubts. I could see how Rictor’s attraction/attachment to Shatterstar MIGHT have gotten a boost from his own feelings of powerlessness and Shatterstar’s bond in return could be affected by his feeling of being lost in a world that is not his.

Rictor and Shatterstar's relationship may be on rocky ground... Rictor and Shatterstar's relationship may be on rocky ground... Rictor and Shatterstar's relationship may be on rocky ground...

I’m hoping this is a temporary setback. I think Rictor’s emotions are probably closer to romantic love than Shatterstar’s. Shatty’s warrior background and upbringing in Mojoworld didn’t prepare him for being part of a couple. I hope Peter David’s master plan is to show us readers as well as the pair of heroes that they belong together. And also hoping he keeps Layla’s ladyparts out of the equation. I’d rather see her get closer to her prophesied marriage to Madrox.

X-Factor joins the fun in The Children’s Crusade

I think X-Factor’s appearance in Avengers: The Children’s Crusade probably marks the first time TWO male super couples have participated in a multi-team crossover within a mainstream comic (as much as I love them, Class Comics don’t count). With Rictor and Shatterstar hanging out with Wicaan and Shatterstar I’m hoping for an interesting conversation or two. SO much happens this issue that I had to post about it and include some spoilerific imagery – so I wanted to wait a few weeks from release so you would all have a chance to run out and pick up your copies at your local comic book shop… but enough stalling. Remember READ YOUR OWN COPY FIRST! You won’t be disappointed.

The Scarlet Witch has regained her memories and now recognized Wicann (and Speed) as her sons X-Factor got called into the brouhaha due to their personal and professional knowledge of depowered mutants Wanda successfully restored Rictor's powers... only a million mutants to go.

I think this issue offers the first solid evidence of a definitive chronological point for Avengers: The Children’s Crusade within Marvel continuity. We’ve seen Steve Rogers back in his Captain America togs since issue 1 – which sets Avengers: The Children’s Crusade AFTER Fear Itself due to Bucky’s recent untimely death… and the X-Men lineup seen below sets this mini-series BEFORE X-men Schism.

The X-Men have arrived More Mutants!

So we have Wanda recovering her memory, Rictor regaining his mutant status and the X-Men facing quite a dilemma. Can Wanda reactivate a million former mutants? Will the X-Men even trust her long enough to let her? If she does what will a mutant resurgence mean to the state of the Marvel U and it’s current “Heroic Age?”

X-Factor #213 – Bring on the Baby Daddy Drama

Now that Rictor ran into Rhane’s TRUE baby daddy – the dead wolf prince Hrimhari, I’d expect quite a confrontation between him and Wolfsbane. Shatty’s gonna be PISSED at her for using deception to try and place a wedge in the new relationship. Lucky for Shatterstar that Hrimhari was part of Hela’s undead army, quick tempered and chatty.

X-Factor #213

In the aftermath of the battle with Hela, the team is in upheaval. One member leaves…another arrives…Rictor and Rahne finally have it out over the identity of her baby’s father. Guaranteed to be the most emotional issue of X-Factor this month!

X-Factor #213 X-Factor #213 X-Factor #213 X-Factor #213

Looks like Darwin’s the one taking a powder, which might be trouble since he has Hel in his eyes. What will that do to his mutant power of evolution? If he’s leaving, who is going to show up? Got any guesses as to who “arrives?”

X-Factor #209 – Rahne Sinclair is a lying bitch

Any relationship in fiction is liable to be fraught with complications… happily ever after only works at the END of a story. So it’s no surprise that Rictor and Shatterstar have a bumpy road ahead. The biggest of those is Rahne’s belly bump as she’s now convinced Rictor that he is the father of her baby. The real baby-daddy is now-deceased Asgardian wolf-prince Hrimhari, so he won’t be showing up to claim paternity. Can she break up RicShatty?

It may happen in Vegas, but it’s very likely not going to stay there as X-Factor in general–and Longshot in particular–are unleashed on the Las Vegas strip, determined to face down the goddess of death in her lair and save a very unusual client…

What will Rahne’s manipulations mean for the happy couple? Can a good christian werewolf like Rahne keep up a deception this vile? I don’t know, but we do get Longshot’s Vegas lucky streak and the beginning of the hunt for Hela this issue. More on Rahne and Rictor in #210 from the look of the cover. Never a dull moment in a Peter David book.

LGBT Spotlight on… X-Factor’s Rictor & Shatterstar

I’m trying to be better about calling out references (both positive and negative) to LGBT characters and issues as I come across them in mainstream comics. There have been a number if significant sightings recently. Hot on the heels of Captain America’s thoughtful support of Wiccan and Hulkling’s relationship and The Rawhide Kid swishing and shooting his was across the old west we have a major development in the fan favorite romantic relationship between Rictor and Shatterstar…

from - X-Factor #207 from - X-Factor #207

Now I don’t want to give the end of the argument away because i LOVE Peter David’s work, so I’ve just included part of it, and will keep this focused on what happens in these 2 pages. This is the first time I’ve ever seen 2 men discuss their relationship on this level in a comic book. And I’d put money on it being the first time 2 men have talked about having an “open relationship” in a comic book that didn’t come from Class Comics. While on some level, I’d have preferred a traditional monogamous relationship for the pair (as an example to readers both gay and straight), I think Peter David’s choice here is the right one. It fits the character and history of Shatterstar perfectly.

Shatterstar is a very athletic fighter bred for a single purpose that didn’t include knowledge of or preparation for sex or emotional relationships. Once he became aware of the physical act, a warrior such as him might embrace it and excel at it but not understand the feelings that may come along with it. Peter David as always has done an excellent job of logically expanding upon what has gone before while still managing to break new ground and keep his audience surprised. I’ve said it before, Peter David Rocks!!!

Tell me Shatterstar… do you like gladiator movies?

I love Peter David’s writing and with his milestone issue #50 he did an excellent job of tying up not only ALL the loose threads he’s been dangling not just for the past 8 issues or so (Summers Rebellion, unevil Fitzroy, Cortex, incontinent Doctor Doom), but also the ones that have been out there since the beginning of the series (finally the definitive answer to what IS the story with Layla Miller?). I don’t want to spoil anything, but I do wonder if that’s what happens to Layla, where does she go from there (or then)? I have to admit it felt a bit rushed and tidy to have it all dropped in our laps with a lovely anniversary bow on it, but I’m eagerly anticipating what happens next!

Worlds and times collide in this double-sized conclusion to the year long storyline that has revitalized X-Factor. Will the Summers Rebellion triumph as is supposed to happen…or will it be derailed? Will Madrox make it back to his own time? Will Siryn, Monet and the rest of the team have their final showdown with Cortex? Will we actually learn just how it is that Layla Miller knows stuff? Will someone die?

X-Factor #50
X-Factor #50 X-Factor #50 X-Factor #50 X-Factor #50
X-Factor #50 X-Factor #200

You probably remember the uproar the RicShatty kiss caused from character creator Rob Liefeld. At the time X-Factor writer Peter David handled Liefeld’s reaction with grace and aplomb. Peter David made a number of humorous comments aimed at Liefeld and he’s stuck to his guns on at least one of them.

In a discussion over at Robot6 (which by the way mentioned QueerSUPE yesterday!!!), Peter David decided that he would have Guido ask “Tell me Shatterstar… do you like gladiator movies?” as a reference to the classic film Airplane in which Captain Oveur makes similar suggestive remarks to the young boy visiting the cockpit. I suppose you should expect that when entering anyplace called “The Cockpit.”

In a preview of X-Factor #200 (due in December) which relocates X-Factor Investigations to NYC to find out why “the Invisible Woman has Vanished, he did just that.

Tell me Shatterstar... do you like gladiator movies?

X-Factor counts down to #50, I mean #200

I still have to stick my my assertion that at this moment Peter Davis can do no wrong. I love what’s been going on in X-Factor with the story, characters and especially the writers online comments and letter’s page responses. He rocks!

Cortex stands revealed! Or does he? The plan of the president’s science team threatens Madrox and Layla! Or does it? Shatterstar gets a milkshake! Or does he? It’s all going according to the plan of Doctor Doom! Or is it?

X-Factor #48 X-Factor #48 X-Factor #48 X-Factor #48
X-Factor #48 X-Factor #48 X-Factor #49 X-Factor regains it old numbering with #200

We found out last issue that Cortex is a Madrox dupe, right? Not to mention Trevor Fitzroy is on the side of the angels (for now). What more is in store for us as we approach the milestone issue #50? Oops, better make that #200 since the issue that follows #49 will be renumbered to #200 (the number the title would have been on if the current series had picked up where the oriinal series left off… at 151 instead of rebooting at 0).
