MARVEL Comics Gets Gayer! – Gay Romantic Couple To Be Prominent Characters In “Young Avengers”

Marvel comics is putting renewed focus on its Avengers comics series and past spin-offs like the Young Avengers, about a teen of young superheroes who haven’t  quite reached the level of Captain America or Iron Man.

In the new Young Avengers #1  which hits  stores on  January 23,  Wiccan and Hulkling, one of mainstream comics’ most prominent (and cutest)  gay couples that were actually a part of an earlier Young Avengers series that ended some years  back will be re-introduced and will be  the new series.

Young Avenger’s writer Kieron Gillen states that Wiccan will make a big mistake that threatens his relationship with the  shapeshifting Hulkling in upcoming issues and they will be the “core romantic couple of Young Avengers.”

So awesome!
