As we’ve mentioned more than a few times, it’s Friday. And, as it’s Friday, it’s time for another edition of every gay nerd’s favorite game: “Save Me Gay Heroes!” Yay!!
We received a surprising amount of comments and emails from the first edition, some more helpful than others. Our friend kb reminded us of the mutant, Northstar. Formerly of Alpha Flight (we agree, kb, they were lame), Northstar came out after finding an abandoned girl infected with HIV. This was way back in the day, so definitely a big deal.
Kirke informed us of Wiccan and Hulkling, two Young Avengers with a thirst for eachother. They sure do look hunky, even if they are barely-legal cartoons.
And yet another reader, Russell, to be exact, sent us in the direction of his boyfriend’s website: Boy Meets Hero. There, one can find some indie gay supes. See, who says shameless self-promotion doesn’t pay?
Send us some more. We need a little fantasy in our lives.
Relive the magic of the original Save Me Gay Heroes! Save Me!
