Geez, either way I find the thought of a what 110 year old having any sort romantic interest just wrong. But who cares what Captain America decides to chase. Though I agree with it being odd from a plot point of view.

Than again there aren't many openly LGBT characters in the marvel universe.

It is true that I don't look much at Twitter, but don't you believe in the rabidity of fandoms? I do.

Also AAAH THE BOW!


Oh, fandoms can be rabid. I just don't think its newsworthy, let alone outrage worthy, to be covering what a fandom is gushing about on Twitter this week.

As for the bow; No one is safe from Hello Kitty. No one.

So I looked into this thread for a laugh but I can't help myself when I see such a glaring mistake. So I hate to be "that guy" but for the movie licenses its Fox that has the movie rights for the X-Men and nearly everything X-Men related, not Sony. Sony has the Spider-Man rights and I can't remember if they have anything else. Fox also has the movie rights for Fantastic Four.


I mixed up my studios. Someone already beat you too it. The need for "that guy" was minor.

As for Fantastic Four they need to just give that one up before they completely destroy it as an ip. >.>

Elsa gets a girlfriend and Captain America is an uke. I feel like there needs to be a South Park episode about this.

One thing I see more possible is that one day they'll make a TV series or something about the Young Avengers. The main character there (Wiccan) is gay.


And is he the Designated Team Jerk like Northstar was in Alpha Flight?


Nah, some say Wiccan is too emo but I like him. He's also the son of someone important:



I love Young Avengers, especially the series written by Kieron Gillen.



I absolutely love Wiccan too.

They would make everyone gay if they could and destroy the human race.

The Bucky x Captain America ships ruin the movies a bit like the Sherlock x Watson and the supernatural ones.

Wonder how long this will last given the recent revelation that Captain America has been a deep cover Hydra agent the entire time?

Question: Why do you care so much about what a bunch of twitter users want? You do realize how unlikely it is to actually amount to anything right? And why would you honestly give two figs if it did or not? It wouldn't be the worst thing Marvel's done with the character recently, not after the last issue. and Captain America's sexuality really doesn't matter all that much to who he is as a character, seeing as he's been interpreted constantly as being staggeringly progressive about issues of equity and social rights for a man born and raised in early 20th century New York. I mean he can be gay and still be a bastion of American idealism, liberty and justice for all etc. etc.

I mean he doesn't have to be, but then he doesn't have to be straight for that either.

Honestly if it bothers you that much, homosexuals have been reading and loving stories about characters they like who don't share their sexual and romantic preferences for ages. If you expect that behavior of them, why is it so galling for you to do the same? I mean contrary to paranoia we're nowhere near to "gaying all the things" as a moron on twitter coined. Unless you're actually claiming that there's a shortage of heterosexual relationships in fiction, which I take to be so self-evidently wrong that it doesn't merit discussion.

Really for people who prattle endlessly about perpetually offended social justice warriors, this crowd sure does go to pieces over and take dramatic offense at even the faintest specter of minorities entering their comfort zone.

It' was a twitter campaign guys. It's not even trending anymore. Most of the world has forgotten about it, except ironically the people who were upset by it. Marvel Comics doesn't care. A bunch of yaoi fans on twitter aren't going to magically force Marvel to take Steve Rogers in a direction they don't want to. Though seeing as Marvel's direction entails possibly making Steve Rogers a hydra sleeper agent, I'm beginning to think turning the reins over to a mob of slash fans may not be worst idea.

In another note I just annoy a people lack of creativity. These people instead of making their own characters, they choice to try to change already establish sexualities of characters. That what bothers me. Batman could be gay and I couldn't give two fuck about it. But only if it comes from the creator own mind and not force by some 3 party personal agenda.
By the way here Wolverine and Hercules sharing a kiss.

Just make a alternate reality Cap that's gay, Marvel already did something similar with Wolverine and Hercules and they were more badass than the 616 versions

*Gasp* what if I told you I didn't care.

Your own sexual preference changes literally nothing about this. If it really, really bugs you so much that a bunch of fans on twitter are campaigning for creators to make a change in their work that's on you. The creators are not obligated to take that into account, and if they do that's their decision to make. They aren't being forced to by some outside agenda. There is literally nothing about this worth getting you knickers in such a twist over.

And for the record do you think everything about the stories you read comes 100% from the creator themselves? That they never compromised with editors or drew influence from the opinions of others on their work? Because they do, that's just what writers do. Everything you read has already been compromised to hell and back, and there's nothing wrong with that. People making criticisms of a work or suggesting things to a writer is not some toxic influence on the creative process it's a natural and helpful part of it. What comes out of the writer is raw and rough, and it's a sign of a good writer that they can take criticism of it and consider how other people see their creative decisions. It's wrong to FORCE writers to write something they don't want to, but the people behind this twitter campaign are hardly putting a gun to their heads and threatening to shoot unless they make Steve Rogers engage in sexual congress with another man.

If the creator of a work decides to make Steve Roger's gay, or well bisexual in this case, that's entirely up to them. If they got this idea from a social media campaign but decide to do it anyway, there is nothing wrong with that. There's nothing wrong with the deciding to keep Steve Rogers straight either.

There wouldn't even be a problem here in the first place if a bunch of assholes on twitter hadn't decided to take umbrage with a bunch of twitter users with no actual ability to impose their will on the creative process calling on the writers to make a certain change. It's harmless and not really worth working one's self in a tizzy over. We aren't here because of a bunch of fans bullying the poor hapless and weak media colossi of Marvel and Disney. We're here because of people blowing a gasket over a twitter campaign that dared to call for creators to make a change that made them feel uncomfortable.

Here's the thing is it really so much of a burden on the poor creator's mind to consider the representation of minority groups when writing? To maybe take a step off the path of white heterosexuality and put a character who doesn't fit that mold in their work. Or maybe to have a character who's sexuality is not something essential and defining about their character be gay or bisexual instead of straight. Not that they have to make these changes, but at least consider making them and bear in mind that the world does not consist entirely of white straight people?

It's a criticism. A suggestion of something the writer could change. Writers get those all the time and it doesn't magically force them to drastically alter their work.

And yeah I know about Hercules. I also know about how Marvel turned him straight despite the mythological Hercules being bisexual. Hardly helping your case there mate.

Cause you see straight is still the default. it's the safe, marketable option. Fiction is still dominated by white people in heterosexual relationships. Gay protagonists are still seen as risky and in the staggering minority. So forgive me if I don't see what's so outrageous about people asking writers to include more minority characters or alter the sexuality of characters for whom their sexuality is not a defining and integral part of their character. Forgive me if I don't get "triggered" to borrow the phrase over people asking people already in the industry to consider including more minority characters instead of writing their own original stories about such characters that risk averse executives likely wouldn't pick up anyway due to a belief that minority characters don't sell.

Writers are free to do what they want, and other people are free to make suggestions and criticisms they may or may not take into account. That's it. I'm not going to flip out or feign outrage over something like this. If you are, maybe you're the one being unreasonable.

I did say ALMOST.


This forced "diversity" crap is getting old pretty fast. It's not much different from Christians and Catholics who force their religion onto others.
