LGBTQ Superhero Marriage Equality Memes (Vol. 2)

Stormwatch’s Apollo and Midnighter Kissing

‘Stormwatch’s’ Apollo and Midnighter Kissing

I enjoyed making the first batch of LGBTQ superhero marriage equality memes so much that I decided to do another. Plus, as Baby Nightsoil pointed out in the comments, there are a few major same-sex comic book couples that I overlooked in the first round.

Just like last time, if there’s one you like, please feel free to pass it around, use it as your profile pic, etc. but please include a link back to my site. Continue reading ‘LGBTQ Superhero Marriage Equality Memes (Vol. 2)’

Andy Khouri's Batwoman and The Question marriage equality meme

The Avengers Vs X-Men: What it Could Have Been

Captain America, Spider-Man, Iron Man and crew against Cyclops and the X-MenIt’s safe to say that I had mixed feelings when Marvel first announced Avengers Vs. X-Men. As readers of this site will know, I prefer my comic books to contain a little more depth than who can hit who the hardest.

If this was simply going to be a fight book, part of me respected their truth in advertising.

But now that it’s over, I can finally say: good riddance.

The vast majority of the book was completely unnecessary. Kind of like putting Captain America or Thor in repulsor armor… which they did. Continue reading ‘The Avengers Vs X-Men: What it Could Have Been’
