SuperQueeros! for May 11th, 2011

We've got two definites in terms of queer visibility this week, and two comics that might feature their queer characters but have previews that don't bode well. First the good news!

Birds of Prey #12
The Question guest stars alongside the Huntress as Renee and Helena team up to take out some of Gotham's crooked cops. Huntress also has a question for Renee, but we don't see what it is in the preview. Could Helena be recruiting Renee for the Birds? Or is this a more personal matter? Only one way to find out... #buyit

Daken: Dark Wolverine #9
You just can't pin Daken down, can you? Almost immediately after turning X-23 over to her villainous makers, Daken was pulling a rescue of the lady-clone of his father. And seconds after that double-crossing liberation, the comic went all Resident Evil and turned into the stabby slashfest (not that kind of slashfest) we expect from Wolverine's clones and offspring. So how will this tale conclude? Will Daken and X part on good terms? Or is this the start of some even more complex family relationships? Collision, and Liu's run as writer, ends here!

Possible Cameos
New Avengers #12 is mostly a flashback to "the first Avengers" (read: retconned origin story), but we could get some Victoria Hand if they set any scenes in the present day. New Mutants #25 is the first Post-Age of X issue, but the preview doesn't show Karma (or Magik) in the opening scene. Hopefully she'll make an appearance, but I'm not holding my breath. Though, to be fair, I am totally buying this issue anyway...
