Here are some noteworthy LGBTQ characters from the Marvel characters.
Jean-Paul Beaubier/Northstar - Marvel’s first openly gay, major character and one of the X-Men.
America Chavez/Miss America - Marvel’s first Lesbian Latina character
Theodore “Teddy”Altman/Hulking and William “Billy” Kaplan/Wiccan –probably Marvel’s most famous gay couple
Raven Darkholme/Mystique and Irene Adler/Destiny - we’ve seen Mystique in quite a few X-men movies, yet it still hasn’t been shown that she is Bi, even though she has a long-term female partner in the comics. :(
Loki/God of Mischief - confirmed to be Bi in the Young Avengers series.
Sera - a trans lesbian angel sorceress
Ken Shiga/Koi Boi - though never stated to be trans in canon, Ken has been shown wearing a chest binder under his clothes and his co-creator, Erica Henderson, confirmed that he is a trans boy.
Could they just remake the ‘90s X-Men show already? Like some better animation and better acting is all I want and I want some fresh (and accurate) representations of the X-Men.
Also, make it less about Wolverine. Like, he’s cool and all, but I’m sick of the hype.
List of Mutants Cooler than Wolverine:
Storm-worshipped as a goddess in Africa, has a racial identity that she could work through. Also is bisexual.
Rogue-raised by queer mutant women, is strong as hell
Scarlet Witch-raised by Romani, has had such a hard time.
Nightcrawler-he is the perfect example of the religious guy who IS the kind of person that religious people (supposedly) are supposed to shun (since he’s part demon). He’s also one of the kindest characters in the entire series.
Mystique-basically the only representation of gender fluidity that we have in the X-Men. BFFLs with Destiny (also gay with Destiny). Mother of Nightcrawler and (adopted) mother of Rogue.
Gambit-he’s got a cool power and an interesting background. Great anti-hero material here. Also, if he came out as bisexual, I would not be shocked.
Iceman-GAAAAAY! Also, hilarious. Could be besties with Spider-Man. That would be a lot of fun.
Armor-SHE CAN CREATE ARMOR OF ANY SIZE. I don’t know much else. That’s why she’s on this list.
