Re: Queers Subtext (SPOILERS FOR SE02EP04)

Speaking of queer X-Men, do you know that in recent X-Factor issues, Peter David has made canon a long-standing slash 'ship? Rictor and Shatterstar kissed! (first time in a mainstream Marvel book) and are having some kind of relationship.

Re: Queers Subtext (SPOILERS FOR SE02EP04)

I did know about Rictor and Shatterstar. Part of me thinks it's exciting and part thinks it's way overdue.

Are you saying there haven't been same sex kisses in Marvel before? Or just not with two well established characters?

The reason I'm asking is I have a very vivid memory of being in a comic book store with Doran when he was 12 or 13 and the sales guy wouldn't let him buy a particular comic without my permission and when I asked why it was in a special category breaking the code was told it was because two men kissed in it. I think it was an X-Force, but definitely a Marvel.

Of course, I could have hallucinated the whole thing...
