You have to give props to any comic that can effectively use quantum entanglement as a plot device.
While this comic does, indeed, feature awesome battles on a distant world for the fate of the galaxy, it also includes flashbacks to the first time that Billy and Teddy met. As such this comics is, perhaps. The single gayest Marvel comic I’ve ever read…and that is no bad thing!
We’ve come a long way since Northstar punched his way through a wall while shouting, “I’M GAY!” Now we’re at a point where flashbacks to when a gay, married couple first met and fell in love, while they’re fighting for the fate of the galaxy while surrounded by their gay friends just seems totally normal. Which it should be. And while Marvel has not always been the most progressive of big corporations owned by Disney…they should eb applauded for the progressive they’ve made in representations of diversity both on the page and in their creative teams.
If, like me, you’ve been a fan of these characters pretty much from the start, you’ll find this comic a joy to read. I really love the way Billy and Teddy have developed both as characters and as a couple, and hope that they stay together for a very, very long time.
