Marvel is introducing a new Iron Man in June, and though there's absolutely no indication that he will be gay, no one is saying he isn't either.
Marvel posted a sneak preview of Invincible Iron Man #518 on their website this afternoon. The description of the issue reveals that there will be a new Iron Man debuting:
Marvel is pleased to present your first look at INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #518, featuring the all-new Iron Man! Courtesy of the Eisner Award-Winning creative team of Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca, tensions mount as Spymaster's rampage within Stark Resilient comes to its bloody end. The Mandarin is throwing everything he's got at Tony Stark including amped-up super villains! With a big target painted on his back, can Tony Stark make it out alive? Can the new Iron Man save him in time? Find out in INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #518, hitting comic shops, the Marvel Comics app, and Marvel Digital Comic Shop this June!
Of course, this says nothing about the sexual orientation of the new Iron Man, but all the recent media attention on gay characters, it would be senseless of them not to capitalize.
So when this story breaks on Good Morning America, remember that you heard it first on The Outhouse - ALL GAY, ALL THE TIME!
