SuperQueeros! for April 9th, 2014

Lumberjanes, All-New Ultimates, Batgirl... There are a lot of awesome comics coming out this week, but Avengers Undercover may be the only one with any... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today! 

Avengers Undercover #2
Remember when Wiccan, Hulkling, Karolina, and Xavin were all captured in that Runaways/Young Avengers crossover? And then that time Hulkling was held hostage by Mother? And all those stories with Karma? 'Queeros seem to be the new damsels in distress, and Bloodstone is latest in the line of gays getting gang-pressed into the evil orders. But gosh, does he get to smash a LOT of tanks for a hostage! And who knows, maybe by the end of this saga he'll have gotten even more angst-y and have a higher degree of control over his powers! Oh, and maybe Son of Satan swings both ways and we'll get an allegory for relationships with controlling boyfriends!

Lumberjanes #1
Five Lumberjacksjanes fighting cryptofauna for the rest of the year?! YES, MA'AM! And, as the solicit so succinctly says, "It's Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Gravity Falls." A.k.a., move over Pope, real infallibility has arrived!

All New Ultimates #1
Miles Morales, Cloak and Dagger, Kitty Pryde, Bombshell, and Black Widow! This is possibly the first ever Avengers team with no white males on it and it is going to be irrefutably awesome!

Batgirl #30
The cover has Ragdoll and the solicit says "the Midnight Man", so... I have no idea what is going to happen in this issue!
