  3. I'm not sure where you got the content from Andy, but that is not Marvel's (or x--mens first gay kiss)

    In Young avengers Wiccan and Hulking are always makkin on one another, and I'm fairly certain that there have been previous gay kisses in the x-men titles (Karma, North Star, Anole, Grey Malkin just off the top of my head. I know Karma has been seen kissing, I believe north star has as well)

  4. I emailed your tips about the gay kiss between Marvel and Shatterstar weeks ago

    The big story is how his creator came out publicly that his character is NOT GAY. And he will UNDO IT at the first change he gets.

    He won't get a chance. Marvel won't let him NEAR these characters now that his views are out.
