SuperQueeros! for November 4th, 2015

Someone on the cover of Extraordinary X-Men #1 is queer! And I'm not talking fan theories, people. This is canon! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Uncanny X-Men #600 
Secret Wars was a big hit in all respects but one: it delayed the release of Uncanny X-Men #600 and left us in limbo on whether or not adult Iceman is as queer as his time-displaced younger self. This month we get the answer to that question and (spoilers, but not really)... he is! That means we get well-adjusted gay Iceman in All-New X-Men and broody, newly-outed Iceman in Extraordinary X-Men! Talk about one character representing a diverse community, am I right? Anyway, to celebrate we also get...

Extraordinary X-Men #1
The mystery of the post-Secret Wars status quo for mutants is that Terrigen is killing some of them and sterilizing the rest. Or, as I like to subtitle this scenario, welcome to Decimation II: Children of Men! Iceman is teaming up with Storm, Jean, and the rest of the X-Men to save the mutants or die trying. Personally I'm hoping for a combination of saving the mutants and Bobby finding out that Old Man Logan's new code name is Chicken Hawk...

Midnighter #6
With Bobby and Bobby out on the dating scene, Midnighter is left to represent the homosexual bourgeois fantasy of protecting your sweetie from the machinations of dastardly villains! But will Midnighter take into account that this beau is mortal, or will his assumption that every silver fox has a Kryptonian-level healing factor lead to some miscalculations in planning the rescue mission?

Harley Quinn and Power Girl #5
It's the climactic issue of this miniseries, which I have deduced because the solicitation is just a bunch of climax jokes.

Deadpool #1
Deadpool gets a number one! But will anybody buy it???

Hercules #1
Herc gets an ongoing series too. I heard that Marvel was planning to erase his bisexuality, but unless he makes a gross face at the idea of pashing dudes, I don't see how they will be able to penetrate my head-canon.
