And she’s right, Tumblr still are.

I see the sadness of a love that,
though it breathes, can never be made

So did marvel really introduce a new lesbian character only to kill her off? Or

I’m really disappointed? I’m really REALLY disappointed. Because here we had a canon queer character and a possible romance that I thought was being handled really well, and now?

Haven’t queer people been murdered enough in stories? I know there are statistics somewhere that actually name the number of queer characters who are killed off in regular fiction and it’s ridiculously high. Getting queer representation at all is so difficult, then to kill them because you know, being queer is something that ends horribly? I’m over that trope so much.

I’m just… I’m sad and I’m angry and I don’t like it at all. And if Anna was the only queer character we get in Fearless Defenders I will be doubly angry.

Although some people are happier with the last issue

okay and Fearless Defenders did almost the same thing too I thought they were going to fridge the queer woman in the book but she comes back the next issue when her lady crush literally drags her out of Valhalla. A SUPERHERO COMIC ACTUALLY SUBVERTING THE CHANCE TO FRIDGE A LESBIAN? AMAZING. IT’S A THING THAT CAN ACTUALLY HAPPEN!

But what it really comes down to is

on Fearless Defenders #7

well shit this just made shipping Valkyrie/Annabelle hella awkward

And today, Marvel show exactly how this dynamic may just work. When attacking Nasty Ninjas…

We’ve had it in Demon/Etrigan, Banner/Hulk, Captain Marvel/Rick Jones now we get it in Valyrie/Annabelle. And it works both ways.
