SuperQueeros! for March 16th, 2011

Superqueeros! is a list of comics published this week that feature LGBTetc. characters. As always, let me know if I've missed anybody!

Knight and Squire #6 (of 6)
For a series in love with Birtish culture and word play, this series is getting very dark in its last two issues! Jarvis Poker, the British (and gay and non-murdering) Joker, is terminally ill. Last issue Knight and Squire, the British arm of the Bat Family, decided that it would be sporting to convince the world that Poker's not more of a joke than a Joker and help him pull off one final, grand crime spree by giving chase (and therefore legitimacy) to his watered down crimes. But with celebrity comes company, and when The (American) Joker takes notice he decides that what Jarvis needs is a lesson in homicide, whether the British buffoon wants it or not! The first victim is Squire's new boyfriend (come out of the fridge, ladies!), and the stakes are sure to get higher before this issue, and this limited series, is over! #pickoftheweek

X-Factor #217
Felicia Hardy: Blackcat and bodyguard to New York's mayor, J. Jonah Jameson. Balistique: formerly brainwashed killer, gathering associates and gunning for the head of JJJ ever since her brainwashing was unraveled by X-Factor's resident telepath. X-Factor and guest star Spider-man: caught in the middle! Peter David is sure to deliver, and Shatterstar is sure to make a cameo, as all sides convene in what will surely be the Mexican stand-off of cross-over comics!

Avengers: The Children's Crusade - Young Avengers #1
So we all remember the last page of the most recent issue of Children's Crusade, right? Well it's time to see the making of that dramatic reveal! In this one shot we get: the origin of the Young Avengers, the impetus of Iron Lad, and a possible future of our favorite amateur Avengers! With Heinberg writing this is gonna be good (or at least as legitimately canon as possible)! Also: why is Wiccan missing from the Future Young Avengers????

Adventure Comics #524
I am in love with this comic: Gravity Kid (teh hottness) and his (subtly purple) boyfriend Power Boy are the hottest couple in comics, and Legion Academy teacher Night Girl has always been the campest superhero ever created! AND Phil Jimenez, out artist extraordinaire, is on pencils! This book literally could be more awesome! #getit
