Marvel’s Miss America Comes Out as Gay

A-Force is easily one of the most significant marvel comics to come at in recent years. The series seems a direct response to criticisms that the Marvel Universe still isn’t diverse enough and that there aren’t enough female-centric superhero comics.


So now we have a book that’s almost entirely female-driven. The cast is comprised of the biggest and brightest of Marvel’s heroines, while the script is a joint effort between Angela: Asgard’s Assassin writer Marguerite Bennett and Ms. Marvel writer G. Willow Wilson.

In the new issue of A-Force Miss America (akaAmerica Chavez) will outs herself as being bi or lesbian….

A-Force raised some eyebrows when it was announced because of its all-female cast and its supposed “feminist agenda” (because surely any comic that focuses on female characters must have ill intent).

The comic doesn’t make a point of actively excluding male characters in favour of females. Nor does it play on the old trope that a society ruled by women is inherently superior to a man’s world.



The comic makes it clear that Arcadia is a paradise because all of its inhabitants – male and female, young and old – worked together to make it happen. It just so happens that most of the costumed super-people in this realm are women.

Marvel Announces The First All-Female Avengers Team

The Marvel Universe is looking to make some changes. The Avengers are coming to an end and in their place, another team will take its place; one that is entirely comprised of female heroes.


Marvel calls the team A-Force, and it’s made up of powerful and diverse women spanning the entirety of the Marvel Universe.

In a recent statement, co-writer G. Willow Wilson said

“She-Hulk, Dazzler, Medusa, Nico Minoru and other fan favorites, will take charge. We’ve purposefully assembled a team composed of different characters from disparate parts of the Marvel U, with very different power sets, identities and ideologies.”

It’s not Marvel’s first all-female team, or even the only one they have right now. X-Men, also written by G. Willow Wilson, with art by Roland Boschi, focuses on a core cast of women.
