    Default Rock the Vote: Countdown of the CBR's Top/Favorite LGBT X-Men Characters (616)



    X-Men has always been a book about fighting for acceptance and diversity. While the message of the book is clear the diversity isn't always represented in it's characters. To give some historical reference; Marvel Comics was founded in 1939, X-Men debuted in 1963. Northstar was the first LGBT character at Marvel; he was created in 1979, and did not "come out" till 1992 in the X-Men spin off, Alpha Flight. Cut to 2020 where will countdown 26 LGBT characters of the Marvel 616 X-Verse to reveal the favorite of CBR. The voting is in, the T is spilled, the shade is the thrown, so buckle for one of the craziest queerest Countdowns yet... hope you survive the experience!

    I'm a fighter. I fight for normal people. But I'll never be one. I'm not a hero. Some people can't handle that.

    2 Points Club



    The following three characters each received 2 points each; and believe it or not one 9th place vote each.

    Honey Badger - A copy of a female copy of Wolverine. I'm not overly familiar with the character but vaguely remember hearing something about her liking a girl so I let her in. I believe she is bi?

    Madin - Madin was created my Sina Grace in the second volume of his Iceman solo series. Madin is a Morlock who Iceman help and was gender non binary. Sina recently commented on that he was not allowed to use the term gender non binary and was surprised to hear that there is a non binary character in the up coming New Warriors series.

    Cluster/Lady Fantomex - In Uncanny X-Force, Fantomex's three brains were split up and once took a female body. Fantomex was already in flirtations with Psylocke and that continued in this female form.

    22nd: Kyle Jinadu - 15 Points



    Created by Matt Fraction & Greg Land
    First Appearance: Uncanny X-Men #508 (2009)

    Kyle is the husband of Northstar. The two met through Northstar's sister, Aurora, who hired to Kyle to manage Northstar's Extreme Sporting Teams/Company(?). Kyle has not had much development but was mostly seen in Majorie Liu's Astonishing X-Men; which features his wedding to Northstar (and the first same sex wedding in Marvel Comics). We can expect to see how he is handling the new mutant nation of Krakoa in the upcoming X-Factor series which Northstar is leading.

    21st: Mercury aka Cessily Kincaid Points



    Created by: Christina Weir, Nunzio DeFilippis, Keron Grant
    First appearance: New Mutants vol. 2 (2003)

    Mercury first debuted in New Mutants as part of the Hellions squad. She had a crush on her Hellion teammate Wither. After M-Day she was was one of the few students who retained their powers and placed on the New X-Men squad. Mercury metallic skin was used to help create Predator X. Mercury has been nothing more than a background player since her days on New X-Men. In Brian Wood's X-Men Bling has a crush on her which Mercury found creepy. Once Bling confronts her honestly and directly asks her out, Mercury agrees. While we never see the date they do reappear together in Generation X holding hands.

    Also, aside from the first post, attaching pictures has not worked for me. If anyone knows why or has suggestions please let me know. This Countdown is more fun with pics!

    I think Marvel marketed it as the first same sex wedding at the time, but Kevin Keller and Apollo and Midnighter preceded them.

    Updated. I meant to put Marvel Comics.

    Also, I created an imgur account; what am I pasting after that? I see no [url] tags, so I'm not sure what I need to paste and the http or <?

    Madin was cool and maybe my favorite character in the Iceman series, but she was like Marrow + Bling! and I think I would've rather had either of them featured (and totes down with Marrow coming out as NB!).

    In every comics discussion of her, Honey Badger really seems to polarize readers. She's not like, the saving grace of comics, but she's a bright, fun character and I don't think ANW would've been as successful without her.

    Graymalkin's origin story is maybe Guggenheim's best comics story. I think he could've been a more successful character with a more interesting powerset. I'm guessing his abilities we supposed to eventually be some kind of counterpart to Sunspot's, but...would that have actually been any more interesting?

    Mercury's pretty cool and I like her powers a lot, but there's not much to say about her on my end. There are breadcrumbs of good stuff with her character, but not enough to move me. Would love to see her get developed more.

    Wowwwww it took me until now to realize he’s essentially an inverse, gay Superman or opposite Apollo. He needs a wayyy more interesting costume and characterization so maybe that’ll encourage writers & artists to remember he exists.
