Gay Teen Superheroes Wiccan and Hulkling Kiss in Marvel’s Young Avengers
Jamie McKelvie’s shot of teen superheroes Wiccan and Hulkling sharing a same-sex kiss in Marvel’s recently relaunched Young Avengers comic is notable in that A) WICCAN AND HULKLING ARE KISSING, and B) It took creators Allan Heinberg and Jim Cheung six years to show the gay couple locking lips for the first time.
McKelvie and new writer Kieron Gillen are wasting no time skirting the issue of the couple’s, well, coupleness this time around. The characters are 18, they’re gay, and they’ll be kissing all up in your superhero comics, thank you very much.
Any Young Avengers fans out there?
