Re: Representation in Marvel
I feel like Northstar's character sometimes suffers from being forced. Like his wedding felt a little rushed and forced. Kyle has had barely any development, and it just felt like Marvel was competing with Archie and DC. Don't get me wrong, I love that there is a married gay hero in the MU, I've just always had issues with how Northstar has been handled. It doesn't help that he is completely boring outside his sexuality (though I like him being a French Canadian because I'm from Canada). He just feels token-y sometimes.
But I guess some characters do need to take on that token role in order to pave the way for others. It's a slow process.
