    1) what's Strikeforce? Is it a mini or a series, who's the writer and what's the cast? Also does he have a good role?
    2) what's happening in the X-verse right now? The overall story formula?
    3) ohhhhh Iceman on the "Marauders"? Noice! Who's the writer and what's the cast?
    1) Strikeforce is an ongoing. I actually haven't read the first issue yet, but seems like there's a good paneltime distribution for the team and Billy is mentioned in solicits for next issues. Written by Toni Howard who's also doing Death's Head.That's the cast.

    2) Honestly you're just gonna have to read HOX/POX(House of X/Powers of X), it's like the biggest status-quo change for mutants since ever.

    3) Gerry Duggan. The team.

    One more question, not really LGBT+ related... any news on Thunderbolts? Esp. Moonstone!

    I'm intrigued. It needed a huge shift. I'll research!

    Is that... EMMA FROST??? My gorgeous Emma is back? What a cast! Emma, STORM!!! Love it, and is that Pyro Pyro? The original? Wow, okay, that very much ticks all the boxes.

    As far as I’m aware it’s the new Pyro. Simon Lasker. He’s a former hookup of Iceman’s.

    Sort of? Nothing in terms of the team having their own book again, but some of the characters have been around.

    Zemo has been an ongoing character in Matt Rosenberg's PUNISHER series, and in the final arc he assembled a new Thunderbolts team (Moonstone, Ghost, Radioactive Man, Fixer and Jigsaw) to hunt Punisher down.

    A few months ago there was a GIANT-MAN miniseries that teamed up four size-changing heroes: Ant-Man (Scott Lang), Giant-Man (Raz, the new gay Giant-Man), Goliath (Tom Foster) and Atlas. Moonstone also appeared in that mini.

    And Atlas also appeared in the latest issue of GWENPOOL - where he was one of several heroes running around in nothing but a skimpy swimsuit.

    But given that original Pyro was also originally intended to be gay, perhaps he'll follow in Simon's footsteps and also be a hook up for Iceman.

    I don't know if you've been keeping up with Marvel movies/TV shows news, but we're getting at least two LGBT+ characters in Marvel movies in the next two years. Kevin Feige has confirmed that Eternals (coming out next year) will have a gay male character who's married. We don't know who's the character yet, but fan speculation and rumors point towards either Ikaris (played by Richard Madden) or Phastos (played by Brian Tyree Henry). Tessa Thompson also confirmed Valkyrie being bi and that she would be ''looking for a queen'' in the upcoming Thor: Love And Thunder movie (coming in 2021).

    And just recently we got rumors of Wiccan's (and Speed's) origin story possibly being adapted on the WandaVision TV show coming in 2021 on Disney+, which could lead to the Young Avengers in the MCU. But nothing has been confirmed so far.

    That's kind of disappointing, as I was hoping we would get a follow-up to Bobby and Simon's hookup. But on the other hand, Gerry Duggan kind of teased on Twitter that Christian Frost might be the guy that shows up alongside Bobby on the cover of one of the upcoming issues of Marauders, so I guess all is forgiven if they give me that IceFrost ship I've been craving.

    Technically Sina Grace followed up on it a bit in the one-shot that finished his ICEMAN run. The two agreed there was nothing serious to pursue between them...but that didn't rule out the occasional friends-with-benefits hook-up, as they had sex again as Simon's "birthday present" to Bobby since he didn't buy him a gift.

    Interesting! Regardless of whether we see a Bobby/Christian relationship (I'm not sure Christian is mentally/emotionally ready to date anyone just yet) it will be cool to see his storyline followed up on!

    Jim Cheung posted a new image of Billy on his Instagram, which you can find here.

    Someone asked if he could soon tell us what it's for, and he said, "Stay tuned..."

    Unsure whether this counts as LGBT rep, but there are hints that Scott, Jean, and Logan are in a Poly relationship. Specifically:

    ERlYTCb.jpg

    Jean's room has doors directly to both Scott and Logan's rooms. Also, Logan is living in the Summers household, where the only people there not directly related to Scott are Jean and Logan, and considering that two of those people are biologically Jean's children, if not actually since clones and alternate dimensions...

    What I really wonder now is if Jean is just in a relationship with both Scott and Logan, or if those two are together as well. If they are, then we have some new bi/pan mutants to celebrate. And some of the most famous ones too! Logan even had an alternate version of his date Hercules anyway, so it's not like his sexuality would come from nowhere!

    Thank you for that.

    Wow, the AGENTS OF ATLAS book and all of its various side solo projects are certainly adding a lot of new characters into the mainstream Marvel Universe! Nice to see some more LGBT representation among them.

    Yeah, I'm glad to see them finally fleshing out Marvel's Asian heroes, and in a way that's actually thoughtful. Too often new Asian characters are just white dudes making clunky manga parodies...

    Polyamorous relationships don't always translate into queer relationships, though. Like you said, it's possible Scott and Logan are just ''sharing'' Jean without having any actual contact between themselves. And even if Hickman's intention is to have a full-on threesome, I have my doubts if Marvel would allow him to go that far explicitly. Making BOTH Cyclops and Wolverine openly queer in the main universe would be a tough pitch coming from any writer, let's be real.

    Yeah, I know. I don't think it will happen. Hell, even the polyamory seems a little unlikely. But if they are in fact in an open relationship, then it does open some doors. I also wonder if Scott is dating Emma as well, but since she doesn't have a room in his house and Wolverine does, I don't think so? But yeah, I think it's REALLY unlikely that Scott specifically would be made queer is some way, but Logan does have the whole "AU dating Hercules" going for him.

    And lastly, I wanted to ask, does straight polyamory count as LGBTQ+ in some way? Since they do face discrimination for being in unusual sexual relationships that should be no big deal as long as everyone is consenting and aware of the situation? I think they kind of fit in a blurred line kinda way since they are discriminated based on their sexual preferences, but don't really know the actual answer. What do you guys think?

    Nah wouldn't count it. It's a cis person banging another cis person f the opposite sex...Are single straight and sexually active cis people considered Queer? Polygamy isn't a preference it's a choice...like only banging people in a higher income bracket than you....or strictly hooking up with fraternity/sorority members you're not born with that sexual inclination
