    FWIW, I just published a first character profile of Phyla-Vell.

    Writeups.org -- huge encyclopaedia of characters, chiefly from super-hero comic books. It's great.

    I always liked Moondragon. I like Teddy and Wiccan too. If I had to choose, I'd say Teddy and Wiccan.

    Loved the costume though.

    Karma! She's my third-favourite Marvel character in general. I love Karma. She deserves so much more attention than she gets. She's probably the single most diverse character ever - Asian lesbian amputee rape survivor who's sole caretaker for her two younger siblings. And she's also a librarian, and librarians are awesome. (Especially any librarians out there who want to hire me. Please? I need a job!)

    Karma's awesome.


    I hope we get to see more of the Bling!/Mercury relationship. Has anyone come up with a cute name for them yet? The best I could come up with was Shiny Love.

    Julie and Karolina made a cute couple. I'd like to see more of them. Striker's cool. I liked Moondragon and Phylla as a couple, but I'm disappointed that we saw so little of it, really. They kept dying on each other, so we didn't get to see them as a couple. We never even saw them kiss, I don't think. I do think Phylla was actually a really good influence on Moondragon, though, and made her a better person.

    I still take issue with Gambit kissing Courier being described as an LGBT kiss. It was clearly meant to be a man kissing a woman. It was intended to be seen as a normal, heterosexual kiss.

    I also find it tough to really think of Mystique as bisexual. We're only aware of one relationship she'd had with a woman, and that's Destiny. We've never seen her date or sleep with another woman. Whenever she's looking for pleasure, she always seems to go with a man. At this point, she's just as likely to be "straight with an exception."

    Skeeter: Hey time traveling O5 members of the X-Men We don't take kindly to people who create a time paradox around here!

    Bartender: Now calm down Skeeter they aint hurtin nobody.

    Skeeter: No! I wanna know som'in from the "O5" How come you cant go back to your own timeline in the first place and how come when Reed Richards "fixed" the universe you wasnt put back and how come the changes that happn to you dont happn to your present day selves?

    I think the series was cancelled before they ever got to it, but I remember the writer saying in an interview that he wanted to introduce a new girlfriend for Mystique.

    For your list of LGBT characters currently active: Daken is currently active in UNCANNY AVENGERS (although probably not for too much longer as the current arc is heading towards its conclusion and I expect Daken's resurrection will be revoked at that point, if not sooner).

    I'm so glad Anole is finally getting some shine after years in the background.

    Favorite wise would be Cullen Bloodstone. I'm fairly glad that he's not a stereotype, but at the same time not so completely butch. Also it seems like he liked Aiden before his Celtic makeover so good on him.

    Yeah, I guess two years just wasn't enough time to show Mystique being interested in women.

    I hope that Shatterstar and Rictor show up somewhere in the X-books in the near future. They were too well-developed in X-Factor to just be forgotten about.

    Was it just me, or did Lieutenant Flint get outed in the last issue of MOON KNIGHT? There was a gay couple walking down the street together at the start of the issue--and one of the two guys looked an awful lot like Flint.

    To be fair, I think it was Sean McKeever who said he was planning to introduce a new female love interest for Mystique, and he was only on the book for the 2nd half of its two year run.

    Of note for the list of currently active LGBT characters:

    Gabriel Shepherd is currently appearing in X-Men and if you count miniseries, Wiccan and Hulkling are in Original Sins.

    Didn't Electro allude to being bi-curious in Mark Millar's Spider-Man run?

    Gabriel is LGBT? I didn't know that. Where was that established?

    Yep. No other writer has acknowledged it since then though, so either Electro satisfied his curiosity and concluded he is straight after all, or he is keeping his bisexual side on the down low (which would make sense--not all of the supervillain community is known for being enlightened and tolerant, after all, so Electro may not want to paint a target on his back for ridicule and discrimination from fellow villains).

    You need an "Other" option because I don't see Phyla-Vell on your list.
