    I didn't get the impression that Tommy and David are exclusive or even seriously dating, more like friends who occasionally make out with each other.
    end of spoilers
    Yeah it could be like a friends with benefits situation at best/if anything, but calling it a serious relationship is probably pushing it

Now if she's gonna develop this relationship? That's a whole other story. People were flooding her with questions about it, and she simply said she didn't want to answer that because she didn't want to spoil the book. What I get from this is that either a) Thinkfast will be a thing in X-Factor and she doesn't want to reveal Tommy's role in the book OR b) Thinkfast won't be a thing in X-Factor and David might have another love interest, which she doesn't want to reveal right now.

    What is making me think it might be option b) is the fact that Anthony said a while back on a podcast that he wrote Emperor Hulkling as a send-off to David before he goes back to the X-Men books. I interpreted this as ''David may not be interacting with these characters anytime soon, so here's a parting gift'', but I guess I could be wrong and the send-off actually refers to both David and Tommy going into X-Factor, but we haven't seen any evidence that Tommy will be included at all so far. I guess we'll find out sooner or later.

    If anything I imagine David hooking up with the one of the sons of The Pretender Wanda Maximoff is likely to be a source of tension within the team, especially if Wanda's recent attempt to help the mutant race in X-men Empyre has left general sentiment around her at all time low and resparked old wounds.

    Though it'd be equally amusing to see David on the receiving end of being tempted away from home, likely by Daken.

    It be intresting to see how it'd parallel his attempt with Billy and Teddy, who much more established and devoted to each other vs him and Tommy who are clearly still in the early phases of their relationship and not as stable.

    It would certainly make for some interesting drama.

    Oh, I doubt Tommy/David will ever, ever be like Billy/Teddy, and I don't say this just because of my bias towards Wickling as a couple, but simply because I don't think any YA couple can reach the status Billy and Teddy did. It's much easier for a couple to make it when they are written to be together ever since their very creation and remain together ever since. They are the Reed/Sue of the group, so they're going to be a solid couple. The YA just don't have that with any other couple, and Thinkfast specifically will always be haunted by the fact that they are characters from different franchises, so much like Storm/Black Panther, it's very likely that editorial interference will be their downfall, unless they hit the jackpot and become the new Jessica Jones/Luke Cage, but that's the exception, not the rule.

    I don't even think it makes sense for them to love each other in a distant way.

    Agreed, and I'd prefer it that way. Different flavors of relationships, not every pairing needs to one true forever love soulmate stuff (which Billy & Teddy totally are and I will not hear otherwise!), some of it can the kind of serial monogamy that's gone on with Kate Bishop, and that's okay, too.

    So I've seen some people theorizing that Tommy is living with David (which would mean he's living in Krakoa) because of his ''can we stop to get fries before we go home'' line, but I'm not particularly convinced that's what it was supposed to mean. IF it was supposed to mean they're living together, we'll probably find out soon enough with X-Factor.

    My first instinct is to assume that they don't live together and Tommy was just saying "go home" in the pejorative way as in "go to our respective homes, from this club"

    But this entire ship is based on reading into subtext and fan headcanon. So it's impossible for me to predict what will happen with them

    Oh, and Anthony was in the Marvel Podcast with Chip and they talked about Emperor Hulkling. Anthony said something interesting about Krystal and how he would love to explain one day why she seems to know more about the X-Men adventures than your average Marvel civilian would. I really hope he gets to give her a backstory in a future book!

    He's also been campaigning hard on Twitter for Marvel to give him a Young Avengers or Wiccan & Hulkling book, and I hope it pays off.

    I think it'd make sense if they're living together but David isn't in Krakoa yet. He doesn't have his powers so maybe he's been hesitant to go. Leah says she has a story about him getting his powers back that is not the crucible, so there are many ways it could all go... Either way I'm not counting on Tommy being in X-Factor.

    The Week In Gay:

    We had a really good week this week!

    Empyre #2 - more Hulkling awesomeness as the cosmic event continues! And...does anyone else get a bit of a 'queer-vibe' off of Quoi? I can't put my finger on it, and maybe its just something to do with Schiti's makeover of the character.

    Empyre: X-Men #1 of 4 - Multiple Man is one of the X-Men in this story. I wouldn't count on an appearance by his gay dupe(s), but one never knows....

    The Adventures Of Teddy The Twunk oops, sorry, no I meant Emperor Hulkling - possibly the gayest comic Marvel has ever published! Even if this were the only LGBT-inclusive book out this week, it would still be a strong week for our "Week In Gay" list!

    New Mutants #11 - Karma is in the cast

    Wolverine #3 - Iceman has an appearance

    X-Men/FF #4 of 4 - Iceman appears here too, although he role is so small he's not even included in the cast list on the recap page.

    Teddy the Twunk is a better superhero name than Hulkling

    I listened to that. It was really lovely to hear Chip being so supportive and kind to Anthony's accomplishment(s) with this issue.
    I know that lovely man has LOTS of ideas simmering in his brain on stories he'd like to tell with Billy and Teddy. I've been tweeting and retweeting and encouraging people to signal boost/blast Marvel heads, encouraging them to give him more work.

    Additionally, I absolutely LOVED what he said about the Queer Experience in regards to Billy/Teddy and their day to day life. That really hit me in my soul.
