Did you know that The X-Men‘s Wolverine had a bisexual son named Daken? In addition to claws and a healing factor, he’s got special pheromones that can make anyone attracted to him—but he basically sleeps with people to play mind games and gain access to secret files. Not exactly good boyfriend material.
Anyway, Marvel just announced his comic book, Daken: Dark Wolverine, is being canceled because it wasn’t making enough money.
Did Marvel market him enough to the LGBT mutant community?
Readers bummed about Daken’s exit (February’s issue #21 is expected to be the series’ last) should know that he’ll still pop up in other series. And in the meantime, you can still enjoy the greater universe of LGBT comic-book characters, including The X-Men‘s bossy bottom, Northstar.
