White Queen and Black Queen, by Gael Bertrand
This is how Chris Claremont slipped BDSM into mainstream comics read by children in the early 1980s… and the Comic Code approved it!
Two Queens together
And yes, Claremont is one kinky SOB
If he’d had his way… we would have hand more lesbians in comics too.
And this is why Chris Claremont is AWESOME
And why Marvel should have seriously just him do whatever the hell he wanted to do, with no restrictions
I’m delighted that he tried to make it as clear as he possibly could that there was so much amazing lesbianism going on during his X-men run though, even if the bigoted idiots in editorial wouldn’t let him come right out and say it
And pissed off that in 2014 Marvel STILL haven’t made any of that subtext canon because they’re too scared of pissing off bigots by making these characters canon queer…
Every time I seem them together, I cry because a) Jean is still “dead” and b) because apparently they were going to become a couple.
