    It was Vnn.

    Me, Yesterday: "Starbrand is just a Hulk, lamest B.C. Avenger, lol"

    Me, Now: "Starbrand is the best Boomer Avenger and he deserves happiness and his garden and a solo series and he's 3,000x better than Kevin and Starbrand is cool again and if anything bad happens to him I will burn the world"

    lol. My reaction isn't as....intense as yours, but I share the basic sentiment. I have to admit, despite my lack of interest in the B.C.(C.) Avengers (and my general skepticism towards the very concept in general) Aaron has made most of these flashback spotlight issues far more entertaining than I would ever have expected.

    I do still feel bad about what happened to poor Kevin though.

    The Week In Gay:

    Aero #5 - the story with Sea Hunter continues

    Avengers #26 - another issue set in the ancient past, exploring the members of the B.C. Avengers - this time focusing on Starbrand. We see his origin story here and that he was in a same-sex relationship prior to getting his cosmic power.

    Deadpool #1 - Wade's latest series is written by Kelly Thompson and features a brief appearance by Gwenpool as she turns custody of Jeff the Land Shark (from Thompson's WEST COAST AVENGERS series) over to Wade.

    Excalibur #2 - no sign of Rictor yet, but Betsy and Gambit are here and the team establishes their new headquarters by restoring the Lighthouse (which was the base of operations for the original EXCALIBUR team back in the day).

    Gwenpool Strikes Back #4 of 5

    Loki #5 - final issue, unfortunately.

    Marauders #2 - this book is really piling on the gay content. We've got Iceman on the team, and making out with some random guy. We've got a top secret memo tracking the Marauder's activities, reporting that their time in Tokyo was spent in gay dance clubs and an underground casino--and that this government agency has now embedded agents in those locations in case the Marauders return. And we learn that Christian Frost has been appointed the White Bishop of the Hellfire Trading Company. We've also got Pyro getting a face tattoo--which seems rather drastic.

    Strikeforce #3 - This book is MARAUDERS' main competition for the title of Marvel's gayest book, although this issue wasn't quite as gay-packed as #2 since we're no longer at Satana's nightclub. But Wiccan has a major role in this issue; Angela got to kick ass; and Hulkling had a brief guest appearance. Also Daimon Hellstorm has finally taken his place among the cast, although he has not yet returned to his regular sexy look.

    I think that's everything, although this week's CAPTAIN MARVEL guest starred Thor, who was shirtless for the entire issue.

    Did I miss anything?

    Luciano Vecchio did a redesign for Koi Boi and I'm just....... his mind is so powerful I can't even!



    Also Marvel, we just lost all of the ongoing books with trans rep. DO SOMETHING!

    Is this a canon redesign because it’s amazing and should really be used.

    Thanks for sharing that here -- that is an amazing redesign and it would be amazing to see Koi Boi using it or something very similar in the comics!

    I really hope Koi Boi (and Chipmunk Hunk) aren't allowed to slip away into comics limbo for too long.

    Last week you missed Fantastic Four 2099 #1 where one of the members, Sian Cortez, was a lesbian married to a hologram named Vellum and another member was their daughter Bela.

    Too bad the entire team is killed by HERBIE at the end of the issue.

    I don’t think there’s been a proper explanation for Koi Boi’s powers so just retcon him to be an X-Gene carrier and ship him off to Krakoa.

    Koi Boi deserves better than becoming the latest teen to get shoved into the X-Men's clutches just to get ignored by all future writers

    I'm not even sure if the X-office cares about whatever was established in the SG book after she was retconned to not be a mutant in the most transparent way ever. As far as they're concerned, Marvel was trying to make her corner of the MU none of their business.

    Anyway, I think Ken's best shot right now, considering how minor of a character he is, is to follow wherever Doreen goes. He is a firmly established supporting character of hers, and she's been popular enough to appear in other books, whether it's a relaunch of her solo or a team book. If he can tag along with her, I think he'll be fine. It's what Marvel should've done with Serangela, but they were dumb and decided to make them part ways again, so now we're back to writers using Angela, and Sera being nowhere to be seen, because no one would likely bother to use her without Angela.

    I’d rather his own mythology was explored as something unique. I’m not sure if it’s ever been directly stated (but working with the fact his surname, Shiga, is a Japanese Prefecture and koi are associated with the country) but I’ve always viewed him as Japanese-American. I think that, paired with his admiration of Namor, would make it pretty cool if he was a descendent or half-ningyo type character. It plays with Japanese mythology and it could set him on a path against Namor, who notoriously doesn’t play well with other sea folk, as he discovered his heritage.

    I think it’s a disservice just to force characters into banners like mutant for the ease of story telling. If you’re gonna try and make a character last, they need to stand on their own.

    That said, it’s very likely that Koi Boi won’t return until someone decides to push Squirrel Girl again. Which is unfortunate as it’s another trans character that’s simply faded into comic limbo.
