How many fans would like to see cyclops as a LGBT character.

Are there any transgender heroes/heroins?

#5 Posted by charlieboy (7158 posts) - - Show Bio

no, cyclops should stay straight. i don't think they should change his sexuality. the only way i think a previously thought to be straight character should turn out to be gay is if it makes sense for the character. with cylcops it does not.

No, changing a characters sexual orientation without any hint as to why is stupid and insulting to both the character and the readers intelligence. Now if Marvel were to build up to makeing him bi-sexual I would accept it, but still have a WTF reaction throughout, because it really would serve little purpose.

I wouldn't mind. There's already sexual tension between him and Wolverine.

As for my answer, nah. Maybe if those were his origins I wouldn't care, but after 50 years, 4 girls and a son I say no.

After dealing with all the Phoenix-possessed women BS he has had to put up with, I'd switch teams too for sanity's sake

#18 Posted by Hazlenaut (1960 posts) - - Show Bio

He has enough issues to deal with. Walking out on Madelyne Pryer, than there was jean gray scandal, as well as gun rampage when he lost his powers and everyone lost their sanity. Going against his Xavier teachings and the list goes on.

why does sexuality have to serve a purpose?

The same purpose changing The Orginal Green Lanterns did, or Storm and Black Panther's marriage. To attract attention and new readers. Marvel has a good stable of minority characters turning a character with as much history as Cyclops wouldn't serve much purpose other than to be a publicity stunt.

@JohnnyWalker: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender.

In short he wants to know how you feel if Cyclops turned yay...

Personally i think that would be weird, because that's not him.

Married man marries a red head, walks out on her, marries a red head who looks exactly like his first wife, cheats on her and has had many relationships in between, such as Psylocke.

I can imagine Cyclops just walking out the door saying 'Screw this. I'm going gay.'

I can already hear the roar of hate it would get.
