    Hyksoses don't count. And you are anti-everything, so you definitely don't get to say what's racist or not!

    Storm controls the weather and Wakanda has always been shown as a highly advanced culture in a lush tropical rain forest! No one was in danger of dying of heat stroke!

This belief always has people point out that if 'normal' or regular everyday joes are portrayed then none of this would happen. This thinking always overlooks the fact that no matter what the character acts like people that have an issue with gay people won't like them period.
    Well then...yeah people shouldn't feel unwanted or unwelcome simply for acting in a way that would be viewed as effeminate or flamboyant. I wouldn't want to give that impression at all.
    I'm not a fan of the theory that I'm a self-loathing queen for having a beard and watching football in between times I go to drag shows or musicals. I get that it is asking a lot for Marvel to cater so specifically to someone like me but damn it, I like General Howlett and Hercules around and I would like a few more characters like them around.

But then society feels this need to slap a label on people, and demands to know "Is So-and-So gay? Ermahgerd." Having a character like Psylocke who's only thus far had feelings for men develop feelings for a woman would not be a "sudden change for shock value." It'd be resembling something that happens on occasion in real life, and it would in no way invalidate the feelings for the previous men or the woman in question.
    True but unless there's a continuing storyline behind it then it is just for the shock value and such or if it's Cluster then it's to give a push to Fantomex, the problem wtih that would be that many people would then only want her with women from that day forward, since she did it once...much like Buffy...true it happens in real life but Betsy imho has never shown any inkling and that's a big change to a character to where not every future writer will agree with it, as Wood will not be the last writer to write her and I doubt that all of them would be for it, if I had to guess then I'd guess that it was Rachel or Storm or maybe Jubilee, besides which Betsy unfortunately will still be with the creepy Fantomex 3 and their feelings for her. Take Rictor for example, until PAD did a 180 and changed his sexuality Rictor was as straight as they come, Nicieza the writer that had written almost all fo what those fans who liked them together use admitted after leaving X-Force that he knew that some peopel felt that way and wrote what he did to tease them, nothing more.

    Oh my god, this is a completely different thread and you've managed to bring your Fantomex/Psylocke vendetta here too.

    This title sounds like so much fun! I'm excited. I wonder who the 7th will be. Female, surprise/twist X-Character. Sage? I hope not. I'll take X-23 after she finishes killing baby Avengers in the Arena. And woop woop to Pixie and Bling supporting roles! Surge next maybe??

    I agree with everything in this post. Anyone who wants to kill off Anole for such a pathetic reason, needs to off themselves. What a very ignorant thing to say.

    Oh, that would would be all kinds of awesome! Can you imagine a Coipel drawn Callisto? That would certainly be a great for me.

    Or this. She is rumored to be starting her own school, and Jubes does show up with a kid in tow. For all we know, Mystique could be recruiting as early as nursery school. Either of these choices is a winner in my book.
    Believe me, if I'd felt it was the way to go, I would have done it. Thank the goddesses I didn't have to. But don't flatter yourself, you couldn't have stopped me if you tried - Storm
