    Every time I think of Sunfire, I think of him as "Fire Namor" but I had never noticed that he has no partner, funny.

    But it's a common trope that Asian Dudes aren't sexual
    Yeah. 'Cause it's all threatening when Asian (or black) dudes have girlfriends. So Bishop and Sunfire and the like get to be 'gruff loners' or some such nonsense.

    While I'd be amused by Sunfire and Silver Samurai having a thing, having hooked up off screen back during their Big Hero 6 days, I'm just as fond of the idea of either or both of them having some hetero love interests.

    Or Mariko, because it's comic tradition to randomly pair off ethnically similar folk, even if they come from regions with *millions* of possible love interests.

    But not Yukio. Storm will cut a fool who make a play for Yukio.

    Well considering they have Luke Cage, Captain Marvel, and Northstar in an interracial relationship at one point or another. I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to be with Firestar or some other mutants on Krakoa. After all it’s one of the founding tenants of the island - procreation.
    Other Asian men (including South Asians) who got involved in an interracial relationship, Jimmy Woo & Namorita in Agents of Atlas.
    And let’s not forget Lifeguard and Neal Sahara in Extreme X-Men.
