    I don't think that the X-Men has ever really worked as a metaphor for discrimination for another, major and related reason to the one the OP asked: the reason is that they are too powerful. The...

    The Zinn question is interesting. Right now, it looks like Zinn fathered at least one child by the Shaman Empress. But is he "male" or "genderless"? It's hard to say in a world where there are none...

    So, another try at this.

    The most recent issue of Monstress doesn't actually conclude the current arc - in fact, it ends indicating that the Siege of Ravenna is just beginning. This is actually...
