    And I'm a young queer millennial as well and I'd rather read about Billy and Teddys crime fighting adventures and relationships than see them delivering radical political commentary. Modern politics are really ugly and cynical, it's not a situation I want to see those characters in.
    Well we still don't even know if they'll be in that book, and do we even know if Occupy Avengers is going to be "radically political"?

    Well, from what i have understood, it's like the superhero equivalent of Occupy Wall Street.

    Than I guess it mostly depends on what your opinion of "radical" is. Oh and how many years late are Marvel for addressing the "occupy" movement now?

    I just had a thought; with Thor: Ragnarok apparently taking elements from Planet Hulk I wonder if Korg and/or Hiroim might make an appearance? It's not like I expect to see them in a relationship but I do wonder if they might make a cameo, there was already a Kronan (the alien species that Korg is) in Thor: The Dark World.

    I was just talking to Endsong, and you know what would be a great idea?

    Ultimate-verse Jessica Drew as Black Widow's legacy replacement. She's perfect. And would finally represent us as a gay legacy hero.

    As someone who is kinda new to the comic world. (As of now I mostly only watched the Marvel shows and movies) It would be interesting to see the list of LGBT characters with their specific LGBT identities. Like, are they gay, bi, trans, ect. I can see you already put a lot of work into the list already and that's really cool. But I was interested to see which, if any, characters were transgender and that list didn't tell me that. :P

    Lol, oh well. As for my favorite LGBT character I know of, I would probably go with Deadpool.

    I would say Sera as well. But it depends on how people feel about a characters transition being caused by magic, and not by gender-confirmation surgery like in real life, I guess.

    Also, welcome to the community!

    Yes, Sera and Tong are the only confirmed trans characters that I know of, I honestly did forget about Tong.

    The first character that came to my mind was Xavin from the Runaways. How you classify him/her is up to you because he/she was a character that helped explore gender fluidity. Xavin was introduced as a straight male Skrull that was betrothed to Karolina Dean, a Majesdanian, in an effort to bring peace to the two warring races. In order to win her affection he decided to shape-shift into a female for her since she admitted to being a lesbian. Although Xav was often portrayed as female she did change into a male form from time to time. Karolina and Xav eventually fell in love but then she sacrificed her freedom for Karolina's, was taken off-planet by the Majesdanians, and we haven't seen her since. I thought Xavin's introduction was very forward thinking at the time and her story was beautifully done. Definitely one of the best characters from that series.

    Ewing has already used him a few times in ULTIMATES, so it is entirely possible he'll end up getting recruited into that team once ANT-MAN ends.

    Not really. All we know so far is that it will feature Clint Barton and a group of non-powered Avengers (which is a very small list of candidates if they are using established Avengers) dealing with more street-level threats across the country. Aside from the fact that the title evokes the "Occupy Wall Street" movement, I have not yet seen any indication that there is anything political about the book.

    The sticking point there would probably be less by what means a trans person chooses to have their body conform to their gender identity (if at all), than whether or not it's a choice. I haven't seen much objection to magical alteration as a valid path for a trans character who has it available, even though it's not an option IRL. The issue tends to be when writers change the sex of a cis character by magic, mind-swaps, etc. a la "Wanda" Langkowski and someone tries to claim it's trans representation.

    Speaking of this conversation.

    Official poll to change Karolina Dean's codename to Rainbow Bright.
