The Question: Which Bisexual Characters Deserve A Spotlight?
The Question: Which Bisexual Characters Deserve A Spotlight?
The Question is the feature where we ask our contributors for their personal responses to some of the big questions weighing on our minds! This week is Bisexual Awareness Week, a campaign that seeks to accelerate acceptance of the bisexual community. Bi visibility in fiction is an important part of that effort, as bisexual people are often marginalized or ignored in fictional worlds. Thankfully there are a growing number of bisexual characters in comics today, so to celebrate #BiWeek, we asked our writers; Which bisexual characters do you think deserve a bigger spotlight?
The Queer Superteam Fantasy Draft
The Queer Superteam Fantasy Draft
There was a time not so long ago when one could count off all the LGBTQ superheroes at Marvel and DC on the fingers of one hand. We’ve seen an increasing number of queer heroes make their debuts in recent years, and a few established heroes have come out as LGBTQ, but the number of queer superheroes at the Big Two in any given month is still sometimes small enough to count on one hand. To celebrate Pride, and the many LGBTQ heroes that have appeared at Marvel and DC over the years, we’ve assembled a panel of ComicsAlliance contributors to hold a fantasy draft. Our writers will take turns building up seven-member dream teams of LGBTQ superheroes from the ranks of both publishers.

ICYMI: A Classic Character Returned To Form In 'Secret Six'
Gail Simone’s return to Secret Six in The New 52 has gone by without much notice. As good as it is, there hasn’t been as much of an outpouring of love and support as the previous volumes received. Yet with classic Secret Six characters like Catman and Black Alice mixing it up with New 52 creations such as Strix or Porcelain, it’s still just as good as you remember. And hiding in plain sight the whole time was one character that readers know only too well from an earlier DC era. In the book's most recent issue, by Simone, Dale Eaglesham, Tom Derenick and Jason Wright, we fnally saw him spring back into the form we know and love.
