Are gay/ gay couples being downplayed?


I was just thinking about Midnighter and Apollo and how I've never seen them makeout. Then I thought about Wiccan and Hulkling and how they never even show affection toward each other really. So it it that the homosexuals (excluding lesbians) are being downplayed in comics. I mean I'm not homosexual myself, but one day I'd like to see what a kiss between Midnighter and Apollo would look like. And a kiss between Wiccan and Hulkling.

Pretty sure Midnighter and Apollo have been shown kissing, not quite as sure about Wiccan and Hulkling.

this was the best (and most unexpected) confession by a character about being gay EVER! and it's from a few months ago so my answer is no

Just kidding, I'm straight, but yeah I think your question has been answered.

Posted by JCJQLB

Is there any lesbian character in the comics?

Posted by CellphoneGirl
@JCJQLB: There are many :] Like my favorite is Karolina Dean, and there is also Karma from the New Mutants, and many more i can't think of.
Posted by JCJQLB
@xxCellPhoneGirlxx: I didn't knew that Karma was lesbian!
Posted by CellphoneGirl
@JCJQLB: Yeah she is, they even showed her with a girl in Uncanny a little while ago.
Posted by Sexy Merc

Kate Kane (Batwoman) is a lesbian.

@Sexy Merc: Oh that's right she is!!! I almost forgot her!

Why do you say that?

Teen couples not so much, fun fact though, Northstar has never been shown kissing anyone

to comic characters? I mean I know by showing pictures of them kissing it's like we're prying into their private lives but on the other hand, they are fictional

Because this thread is putting the gay community cage and showing them off as if they were zoo animals. Its not right. Let them get their lives together in their own time. "

Erm...what exactly do you mean by "get their lives together"? 
Most are probably doin' fine and bein' gay isn't a problem for them. It's usually others who have the problem.
Posted by JCJQLB

In these days is perfectly normal having gay people!!

But Aztek its like the OP wants to secretly troll the gay community and that shouldn't be allowed here. Surely the gays should do some soul searching and get their lives right, but that is not right to force them to do anything. "
You don't make any sense.

Our lord and savior Jesus H. Christ begs to differ with you. "
The Bible also says racism and sexism are okay.

He's just trolling to get a reaction.

Posted by ForbushBug

I always thought it was hilarious when there was that line in Young Avengers from Hulkling about not letting Northstar have all the fun when it took over fifteen years after coming out for a writer to give poor Jean-Paul a date. At least Byrne was able to sneak in a guy answering his phone in an early Alpha Flight issue under the Shooter regime.

Gays should not be put in a cage and made fun of just because they make wrong decisions.   
 
wat do you mean wrong decision being gay IS NOT A DECISION IDIOT

@Pheonix of the white throne: Not in Christian Conservative's eyes.  Although I don't know what kind of person would choose to be bigoted like that.

@spiderpigbart: @Pheonix of the white throne: and you're both being just as bad as him by continuing something that shouldn't have even been acknowledged, just stick to the topic proposed in the opening post...

Anole is another gay character as well as Thunder Mystique is bisexual Nico Minoru is bi as well Xavin's gay as well all these arent really downplayed
Posted by D-minor

in 1602 i think Iceman is gay..or was it Angel, i can't remember exactly--it was really well done though, very moving

Posted by nicknicholby
@aztek the lost: I don't think either of them is "being as bad as him" by replying.
I appreciate them defending gays.  As one of the few gay members of comicvine, its nice to see them support us.

Renee Montoya  aka the Question is lesbian

Posted by SladeRogers

Whoa. I didn't post this so it could turn into a heated debate about sexuality. Look, I'm bi so like you guys kinda makin this religious and stuff is really unnecessary. Now to end it already, the gay community in comics is alive, but it's just Wiccan and Hulkling have some problems in their relationship.
Posted by Pheonix of the white throne
@SladeRogers:
ok sorry partly my fault for replying to him but i dont think Wiccan and Hulkling have problems with there relationship its just the writers wont show them kissing for some reason
