Ed's Notes: Ugh. So with one charecter, DC managed to ruin representation for both LGBT's and Latino's. On behalf of straight, white comic book fans everywhere, I would like to apologize for this monstrosity. It's no my call, but I'm guessing NO representation would have been better than... well, THIS.  If you've ever heard my radio show, or read my other blogs, you'd know that I am ALL FOR more diversity and better priority representation. Key word: BETTER. This isn't better! I mean... COME ON:


I'll give them one thing... Given his power set, he would be far and away the most interesting character in the New Guardians to actually play. And while I would have no problem role-playing any LGBT character, there is zero change I would play him as the picture above suggests. (Did you know that not all gay people are flamboyant as fuck? No? Well... NOW YOU DO!)

Could be worse, I suppose. At least he's not Marvel's pathetic attempt at LGBT tokenism.
