The Replacements: Celebrating LGBTQ Legacy Characters
Since the dawn of the Silver Age, legacy characters have been a staple of superhero fiction, and having a new character step into a well loved role can open up new opportunities for writers and artists to tell different kinds of stories. In The Replacements, we’ll look back at the notable and not-so-notable heroes and villains to assume some of the most iconic mantles in the superhero genre. This week, we're celebrating Pride Week at ComicsAlliance and changing things up a little bit. Instead of looking at a singular identity and the legacy it created, we're looking at eight distinct LGBTQ+ characters who stepped into iconic superhero roles.
