SuperQueeros! for April 10th, 2013

With Hippolyta coming back from the dead in the Marvel U and fighting the undead in the DCnU, Tia rescuing Batu from certain death in the Supurbia-U, and the Gordian knot that is #nowthatchersdead in the Twitter-U, this week is a life-or-death week for powerful women! And that means that it's a great week for... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgendered, and queer in comics today!!

Supurbia #6
Woohoo, Gio gets a storyline! The dashing Nightwing-with-good-hair is investigating an illegal weapons deal without his Batman-esque boy toy and the fallout is going to have ramifications for the whole 'hood! What with Zari thinking Gio is the cat's pajamas (or at least really good at pajama parties), will a bazooka bust gone bad force her to resort to using her evil magic powerstone (courtesy of Hector Hunt) to save Agent Twilight? And will Agent T dig up something incriminating about The Superhero & Weapons Expo? Or is Alexis actually going to acquire HuntTech, and is her doing so part of some sort of convoluted trap????

Fearless Defenders #3
Hippolyta (Daughter of Ares, not the mother of a butt-kicking clay princess) joins the cast! Hippolyta is so strongly Wonder Woman's mother in my mind that it's odd to me that she is some sort of maiden superhero in the Marvel U. Ditto with the actual Greek stories, too. Every time I see her in an alternate universe I think, "When does she have time for all this queen-ing? Diana must be taking up so much of her time at that age!" Anyway, the awesome Misty Knight-and-Valkyrie recap pages continue in this issue, so this book is perfect even before page one!

Kevin Keller #8
Kevin Keller has his own love triangle now! This is kind of one of the coolest things to ever happen in comics, you guys. #IMO #DanParentIsASuperQueero

X-treme X-men #13
Final Issue!!!!!!!!!! This has been my favorite X-book for the past year-ish ("Wolver-queers before Weddings", as they say!), so it's hard to see it go so soon... The best I can hope for is that Howlett survives and Dazzler remains totes bad-as. But in terms of what is actually happening this issue: 
Kid!Nightcrawler makes "the ultimate sacrifice", which I assume means he kills the anti-Celestial with his Spidey lunch box. Either way, I'm still P.O.'d about Howlett's loss... On the LGBT-upside, though, it looks like it's up to Karma and Northstar to save the day! Go remaining 'queeros!

Demon Knights #19
The Demon Knights take on the vampire army invading Themescyria! (It's like totes Hippolyta week, eh?)

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 9: Freefall #20
Xander tumbles into a possible solution to save the fading Dawn!

I've really been enjoying X-Treme X-Men and I'm very disappointed in how it's ending. They really rushed the whole evil Xaviers thing only to shoehorn the team into this crossover and kill a bunch of them. My only consolation is that Herc is a god and in Marvel that means it's pretty easy for him to come back to Howlett.

Agreed! It was heartening how soon they started talking about saving him!
