    That was my thought. When they do appear, they're more likely than not to be cold and emotionless. Nadia being an energetic bundle of love would be a pretty nice counter to that. (And if any current Marvel writer would have an openly ace character, it would be Whitley. He included one in Raven: Pirate Princess.)

    Hmmm, personally I'd rather see A-Sexuality explored through the eyes of a supporting cast member of any book.

    It's not going to be popular for me to say it, but I do think such a thing being revealed for a character is both going to limit them in terms of what kind of stories can be told, is going to make them off putting to writers who just dont want to be dealing with the criticism or additional scrutiny such a reveal with would bring and, given the way comics work, could lead to some controversy if a writer came along who failed to understand the notion of being Ace and ended up getting it all wrong.

    I think it would make a better story for someone like Nadia to be the eyes of the reader, having to explore what it means to be and to support someone who is A-Sexual, without having to be tied to a difficult trait to continue long term in any meaningful way.

    What @#$% is going on?

    First Unstoppable Wasp and now Iceman?

    Soon they announce the return of GX .

    I'm happy for Bobby but this was a great and pleasant surprise that came from nowhere.

    Yay!
    And my birthday is in September. So happy birthday me.

    Though to be entirely honest, while I really liked the previous run, something about Sina's writing didn't really gel well with me.
    It's not that I thought his writing was bad. Something just felt off, I guess.
    Still, I'm excited to see more. Less excited about what appears to be Kitty on that cover. We get it, she was his beard for a short while. Can we stop having that idiot in Bobby's books now?

    How is nydia being asexual going to limit her to the kinds of stories you can tell with her?

    I disagree. A writer who reveals a main character as asexual is going to get some controversy for it, but future writers aren't going to get heat just for using the character after that. Future writers not understanding what asexuality even is is a concern, but I don't think it would be likely to be too big an issue. And it's not going to be particularly limiting. Shit, it doesn't even prevent romantic stories, since asexuals are still capable of romantic feelings. (Hell, there's even Grey Ace, people who experience some sexual attraction.)

    Ace supporting characters are good, too, of course. But I don't think Nadia being asexual would cause the problems you think it would.

    This makes me so hopeful for more LGBTQ-led books in the future. KEEP 'EM COMING, MARVEL!
