    Default New Wood Interview: X-Men Readers, Vamp Jubes, Brawler Rogue and a Surprise Character

    From Newsarama:

    Also, this book is going to rock:

    Speaking of LGBT readers (and characters), we have Bling! appearing in issue #1, but I'd love to have decent gay male characters represented as well. We're still short on that.

    No. Pixie's presence has been mentioned in every interview. This is someone else.

    I don't have a problem with there being a LGBT character on the team just as long as they don't go crazy and make Psylocke a lesbian, Bling is fine by me as would Karma(even though I've never been a big fan of her, but I believe that's mostly because when I got into comics the only thing that I knew about her was her sexuality and she hadn't showed up in years), or if Storm showed that she went both ways as many have surmised...just no sudden change for the shock value of it like putting Betsy and CLuster together becuase of how much she'd apparently love Fantomex that she didn't care if he's now a she...

    IT'S TIME. I hope Skids sells them up the river just for the scene where Kitty breaks her face in half later.

    The mystery character is X-23 who shows up for a short while before being teleported back into AA. It totally makes sense.

    I hope its Cassandra Nova.

    I'm stuck on the first villain being some kind of mummudrai.

    "BUT"

    just as long as they don't go crazy and make Psylocke a lesbian, Bling is fine by me[*] as would Karma(even though I've never been a big fan of her, but I believe that's mostly because when I got into comics the only thing that I knew about her was her sexuality [**] and she hadn't showed up in years), or if Storm showed that she went both ways as many have surmised...just no sudden change for the shock value of it like putting Betsy and CLuster [***] together becuase of how much she'd apparently love Fantomex that she didn't care if he's now a she...
    *: That's because she's already a lesbian...
    **: Wow...
    ***: Nobody reading this title gives a shit about Cluster, lol

    --

    "Not Homophobic BUT Homophobia" aside, I would love to see Wood writing a gay male character. He gets it. You don't write the character any differently than you would otherwise, except for who they go to bed with at night--and that's not a big deal. Hopefully we can have a gay character who isn't flamboyant or a Glee kid (looking at you omgsogoodYoung Avengers). Ideally we could get a masculine (not hyper-masculine sportsdudebro "masc" but a guy--just a guy) with some hair on his face, chest, and balls. That'd be a nice change of pace.

    I'd rather a brand new character, but I also wouldn't mind if they finally outed Iceman (but do we really need all his baggage? no thank you).

    Though I think certain people are probably jumping the gun by claiming that the "real" Rogue might be back, it's great to hear Wood describe Rogue as both a brawler and a wildcard.

    That traitor Skids is still sloshing her way through the blood of Apocalypse. This is Karima's time to shine. Mercury is acceptable, but only as Bling!'s latest conquest. That's what it'll take for me to like her.

    Thing is you got to have some muscle to be a brawler...

    Flatman should guest star.

    I will gladly accept a support cast role for Pixie. Just please, no wallpaper.
