Seriously, what's the harm if he comes out? Will Mancrunch.com end up owning the X-Men?


You're talking about a group of people who flip their shit if any character ever is portrayed as doing something that contradicts something else he did thirty years ago in another comic. Why do many fans not want Hawkeye to want to kill Norman Osborn?

I don't not want him to be gay, but from reading X-Men for 10 years or so, I've never really seen indication that he is anything but straight. I was just intrigued as to why these 'rumours' are so prevalent online, with so little (from what I'd seen) evidence.

At least you get it.

(That's okay, Punchy, you don't have to--your handlers can do it for you.)


You're fucking mental.

That's not evidence of anything really. An asian woman is still a woman.

Maybe the people accusing you of homophobia are racist! :lol:

I'm not a royal anything.

I don't have mod protection at all, I just don't rise to people's bait anymore.

You insult me a lot, but haven't been penalised, who has protection here? Not me.

You have a persecution complex and it's annoying.

Wolverine is gay.

He dated Asian Women!
Just because he's always dated women before, so what, so and so's Uncle came out as gay and he always dated women.
He has been shown to have intense internal struggles with his true nature.

He must be gay.
