Is Young Avengers The First Mainstream All LGBT Superhero Team?

Young Avengers by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie (and a few friends) comes to an end today, and it also concludes Gillen’s Loki story, even more that Journey Into Mystery did. The new Loki story picks up in All New Marvel Now Point One today.

But before that, we get a revelation.


After one or three examples, we get a few anecdotes.


And a realisation.


Now, there must be a word for Martin Eden‘s Spandex. But it certainly means for Marvel, for mainstream comics, this is their first superhero team who have been, to a man and woman… what’s the best phrase? LGBT? Unstraight? Somewhere on the Kinsey Scale from 1 to 6, but not zero?

And now it’s come to an end. Weep, tumblr, weep.

Young Avengers #15 is published today. Comics courtesy of Orbital Comics, London. Currently hosting a Game Of Thrones exhibition featuring the storyboard and illustration work of Will Simpson, who will be giving a public talk on his work on Friday evening.
