Curious question....So I'v been hearing that this character is going to be gay.Is that true? A gay 13 year old kid...Really?

That's what a heard too. Marvel's really stretching it on this one I think. I mean REAAAAAALLY stretching it.

Why does being 13 matter? People are born gay.This is obviously a rumor but I would assume that Marvel wouldn't have him be in relationships and stuff if they were going that route.

*face palm* Wow guys. There is nothing wrong with being gay.

Well with a 13 year old any sexuality outside puppy love is kinda creepy.

@Vance Astro: The people above ^ Like "I hope not" "Marvel is really stretching it" "A gay 13 year old kid...Really?". Doesn't sound like they are too happy about it.

There's nothing wrong with being gay, tho there is a huge problem with being part of the suck hole that is the ultimate universe

I think when he said "Marvel's really stretching" he was saying that Marvel's already attention whoring by making him black and hispanic and then announcing it like they don't already have ethnic characters.Making him gay now is affirmative action on another level.

@joshmightbe: Woe now. The Ultimate Universe is the only good part of Marvel. Don't be so mean.

@Vance Astro: That stuff should not mater and should not be a big deal. He is a person who just happens to be those things.

i wouldnt care if he was gay but 13? is it necessary to develop his sexual identity this early his age/story? whatever they want i guess. My real problem is how characters cant be one minority now they have to be black and hispanic to cover all the bases cuz theyre too lazy to make more Black or Hispanic heroes. oh and hes gay too. and a libertarian. and has colon cancer. and he has webbed toes!!! i feel like they try to cram too much into characters.

@redhood21: If he had a crush on a girl in his class no one would make a fuss. Also 13 is old enough to go on dates and such, not sex but dates.

thered be less concern problly but i doubt anyone wants to read abt 13yr old relationships. i dont want kiddie porn lol. and what did we all do in middle school hold hands and have our parents cart us around..thats bout it. unimportant!!! If he was atleast in highschool id be fine with it. but i agree wif you that most people are just mad cuz hes gay i for one dont think its pertinent to a 13yro character one orientation or the other.

@redhood21: If he also not actually going to be gay as mentioned above so people are really mad at even the thought of him being gay.

Is it weird that people have no problem with a 13 year old fighting monsters and super powered psychopaths but they freak out at the possibility that he might like other dudes?

I kinda want to see Fox News hear about the assumption of there being a "black gay Spiderman", just outta curiosity to see how they would react. The fact that it's an incorrect assumption is irrelevant, this is Fox News we're talking about.

Tell Marvel that.They are the ones who seem to want a pat on the back for doing something they've already done before.

it isnt the fact of being gay itself, its the overall blatant laziness of it. he's black, mexican, has an asian best friend....and is gay? come on. at least make it interesting. make his pudgy genius friend gay, and then make him a supervillian that is literally crazy in love with him and pissed about being rejected, thats just off the top of my head. a gay blaxican...just lazy

Ultimate Spider-man? Yeah they can whatever they want to him. I don't care. All of Ultimate Comics is an abomination anyway.
