Comics Wrap-Up - I've Got All These Demons Hiding Underneath

 

'Comics Wrap-Up' with lined-notebook-style background and speech bubbles containing heart symbols

It's 2020. Lord knows what's going on now. Let's get some comics-y superhero-y goodness!

Once again everything's in the 'Other Stuff' category #BlameLoki


Other Stuff


John Constantine may be a long-term Bisexual icon at DC, but he clearly needs some more guidance in his nocturnal doings.

Because dude has terrible taste in men.


John Constantine (Matt Ryan): So you keep telling me!

Having a romantic liason with the devil himself (details in link) probably isn't the smartest of plans, John... but then neither was the giant shark-man, tbh. 

(At least the affair with King Shark made monster f**king Twitter happy. Yes, that's a thing. Run. Save yourselves.)

Also at DC is a Genderfluid, Non-Binary hero named Kid Quick/Jess Chambers, taking up the mantle of The Flash.

In case you're not aware, due to multiple universes, timelines, deaths and resurrections, stories set in the future, etc. etc. there are 'legacy heroes' in both Marvel and DC.

This is where a hero takes on the identity of a hero that previously existed in the comics... That's how we can have both Miles Morales and Peter Parker as Spider-Man, for example - in their case in different universes.

In fact, the most well-known version of The Flash, Barry Allen, is himself a legacy hero - taking over from Jay Garrick. 

(Comics are like 90-95% of the reason I don't give a sh** about whether I know all the canon. It's just not possible!)

Giving the legacy of a major superhero to a Non-Binary character is an amazing step for DC to take, and I hope it goes well! 😊

dividing line

And, to end once again with some shameless self-promo, last week's Friday Fics Fix talked Clint Barton /Hawkeye and Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier having an enemies/rivals-to-lovers-style romance!




Do you think Constantine needs some dating advice (urgently)?

Are you excited for Jess Chambers as The Flash?

'I've got all these demons hiding underneath' is from Demons by Alec Benjamin (and was probably not intended to be turned into a double entendre, but I've had too much coffee! 😅)
