@jonny_anonymous: Well I'm pleased to hear it, but you were a bit ambiguous in the way you phrased it. And as I stated before, the reason why I'm not fond of Hercules suddenly being bi-sexual is because there's nothing building it up in his history. Or that the change would come out of nowhere. Both of which happened with characters such as Alan Scott and Iceman in the last few years, which haven't been received overly well.
And if what AcidSkull says about Hercules actually turning a dude down is true, then that'll make the bi-sexual switch in conflict with Hercules' character, in spite of how fitting it would be due to his Ancient Greek background. Unless Abnett did some major backstory explaining to unfamiliar readers why Hercules is suddenly bi-sexual, the readers would be left unclear.
But to cut off my complaining, the interviews and press statements have me genuinely interested in this Marvel comic, which is something I didn't think could happen what with Marvel's current ethos, and business practice of diversity and purposefully enraging their fans. I've heard Abnett and Lanning are a dream team of writers for Marvel on Guardians of the Galaxy and Marvel's cosmic events but I wonder how good Abnett is on his own.
