Ian McKellen Shares Thoughts On A Gay Superhero Movie
When it comes to Hollywood’s superhero films, the genre is just starting to dive into [...]

“Frankly, looking at some of the images of these superheroes, I’m surprised to know that they’re not gay…It’s the reason I played Magneto; I wanted to look like that.”

“I would think Marvel is a very responsible publishing house who came up with X-Men - which is a political story about life as it is lived by minorities of whom mutants are a prime example - would respond very favorably to the idea of having a gay or bisexual or transgender superhero. Can you imagine because of it all the wonderful complications of the story - mistaken identities, etcetera etcetera,” the actor explained.

Charles Xavier x Reader x Erik Lensherr

- Erik has icy cold hands
- he puts his hands on your tummy or thighs to wake you up
- because he’s an asshole
- he did it to Charles once and he screamed and fell out of bed
- Erik then fell out of bed laughing
- “Why are you two like this?”
- Charles will wake you and Erik up with a forehead kiss and a mug of covfefe coffee or tea
- “Good morning, loves.”
- your relationship isn’t public yet, but rumors fly at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters
- everyone (including the teachers) has bets placed on who’s dating who
- Peter is the only one who bet on a poly relationship
- the three of you find out about this betting pool and agree to announce your relationship if you all split the money four ways
- Charles calls an assembly to tell the school
- “It has been brought to my attention that there have been rumors going around regarding the possible relationships between myself, Professor Lensherr, and Professor (Y/N). We’d like to put these rumors to rest by announcing that all three of us are romantically involved with each other. We are in a polyamorous relationship. We are all very much in love.”
- Everyone hands Peter money on the way out of the auditorium
- “I went from having one parent to four in like a week. Okay.”
- now that your relationship is public, you engage in a lot of PDA
- going on walks/rolls with Charles
- beating Erik at chess but he’s like “haha yeah that was a warmup round” or “I totally let you win”


whoops looks like the writers at marvel need a reminder of their own characters’ origins before they do something else grossly offensive

hey, nick spencer!  i know you’re probably not reading this, but shut up and listen for a second, maybe you’ll learn something about respect.  do you know how many jewish people died during the holocaust?  somewhere between 5,000,000 to 6,000,000.

yes, you read that right.  five to six million people dead, all less than eighty years ago.

marvel comics have never skirted around this.  they made it a vital part of magneto’s history, one that shapes his attitudes and opinions more than anything else.  he’s been subjugated, and he’s not going to let it happen to his people - in this case, mutants - again.

so what, mr. spencer, are you accomplishing by having him join up with hydra beyond spitting in the faces of all those millions of dead?  you’ve taken a jewish character - created by JEWISH WRITERS AND ARTISTS - and signed him up with what’s clearly the marvel universe’s equivalent of the nazis.  what are we supposed to take away from this besides the knowledge that you are a cold, insensitive human being?

magneto deserves better.  the jewish community deserves better.  and you own the latter a hell of an apology.

This group is supposed to kind of be an X-Force or Extinction style of team.
