SIHANOUKVILLE, Cambodia (July 28, 2012) A SH-60 Sea Hawk helicopter, assigned to the Blackjacks of Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 21 brings a load of cargo to the pier in Sihanoukville during Pacific Partnership 2012. Cambodia is the fourth country the USNS Mercy has visited during her Pacific Partnership 2012 mission, following on from Indonesia, Philippines and Vietnam. Pacific Partnership, an annual U.S. Pacific Fleet humanitarian and civic assistance mission now in its seventh year, brings together U.S. military personnel, host and partner nations, non-government organizations and international agencies to build stronger relationships and develop disaster response capabilities throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

It’s rad as hell that Koi Boi is trans, but it’s even radder that they’re introducing a trans character that a.) hasn’t yet/maybe doesn’t intend to transition surgically and b.) is in a comic that, judging by the letters page, has the youngest readership of any Marvel comic not based directly off a cartoon.
