    first married or has kids before they got their powers?


    and secondly


    are lesbian in nature?


    if so, how does this affect their popularity among the fans?



    The first one is just a thought that came into my head while typing this thread, i wanted to see if a heroine in a stable relationship (heck even a mother) may have affected them being accepted initially rather than being used as a manner to develop a character.


    Also i wanted to know since some fans really hate the whole shock factor of a character being made homosexual to boost sales for the sake if it would feel the same way if the characters in questions were actually female. I also wonder if any female characters have been introduced as being lesbians and how this has affected their acceptance.



    open to pretty much all mediums here.

    Sue Storm was "engaged" to Reed in their first story, but I don't think that's what you mean.

    As for lesbians, the only one that springs to mind is the new Catwoman, Holly.

    There was a Marvel story arc that had a woman who was married with kids and was given the powers of Captain Britain. That was in the last year or so. Mystique also had kids.

    Kelsey Leigh was a single mother with two young children who lived in South-East England. She was a schoolteacher who taught English literature and history. Back when she was married, thugs invaded her home. One of them attempted to rape her, she fought back, hurting him somehow and he cut her face with a broken bottle in revenge, scarring her permanently. Meanwhile, her husband, Richard, was too paralyzed with fear to help her. His guilt over that incident led to the dissolution of the marriage.

    One fateful day, her family found themselves on the front line of a battle between the Avengers and the Wrecking Crew. Thunderball rendered Captain America unconscious and Kelsey selflessly put herself between the fallen Captain and Wasp, using the downed hero's shield. While the shield was indestructible, Kelsey wasn't, and the shock from the blows inflicted terrible injuries; she died en route to receiving medical attention.

    Kelsey awoke to find herself in a ring of standing stones, where she was met by a vision of Brian Braddock (Captain Britain I). To save Britain from the evil Morgan le Fay, he passed the mantle of Captain Britain to Kelsey. Her heroic act of bravery had earned her a second chance to live and to defend her home. Given the choice between the Sword of Might and the Amulet of Right, Kelsey, desperate to see her children again, and not seeing how a necklace could defend anything, chose the sword, the path of violence. Instantly, she was transformed into the new Captain Britain, only to discover that her decision meant that if she ever revealed who she was to her children, it would cost their lives.


    Kelsey's body has been mystically altered, granting her superior strength, agility, endurance, speed, and reflexes. She also wields the Sword of Might, a mystical weapon that is invulnerable to all harm. It serves to channel mystical energy so she never tires. (This energy can also be harnessed for destructive blasts or protective shields)

    There is a lesbian superheroine team in Kurt Busiek's Astro City.

    And I really can't think of a married superheroine.

    Even with a hero all I can think of is Punisher.

    Yes they think she is dead, but the Avengers are taking care of the kids and she can still see them just not tell them she is their mother.

    what's the significance of having a whole team of lesbians?

    do they data one another? where they lesbians before they got their powers?

    how do their powers affect their relationships with other women or are they all single or do they date one another.

    Maybe I should clarify & say duo.

    And yes they seem to be lovers & partners.

    And not much has focused on their relationship.

    did they get their powers at the same time or did someone get it before the other.


    it sounds like it's just being used for shock value again:(
