Marvel has a huge cinematic and TV universe. From film to Netflix, they got it covered with amazing tales and incredible characters. However, we think it’s time to see more queer characters on the scene, especially more queer characters of color.
So check out this list of some folks we should see soon.
America Chavez (Miss America)
America has an interesting background that mixes space, different dimensions and time. We could see her in the Infinity War, GOTG or in Captain Marvel, considering America’s back story. Also, she could pop up in Agents of SHIELD as they start exploring other dimensions.
Xi’an Coy Manh (Karma)
With this talk of a New Mutants film, they better include “Shan”. Her power to possess people is absolutely amazing and her back story… It’s rough, but it could provide an excellent tale of inner strength and resilience. Shan has always been a wise member of any team, so seeing her on screen would be phenomenal!
Miguel Santos (Living Lightning)
Miguel is one of those characters we don’t hear a lot about in the Marvel universe. He’s very powerful though, flying sub-light speeds, invulnerability in his energy form and can manipulate bursts of electricity and electrical fields of varying intensities. Miguel would be an asset to any team, in fact, he’s been an Avenger.
The Inhumans are beginning to flourish in the MCU. With new ones appearing regularly, why not add Ren to the mix. Her powers are kind of cool; Ren’s skin on her hands and forearms can transform into to metallic razors. It would neat to see her powers at work.
Tim doesn’t have superpowers, but he works for Tony Stark as a scientist. It would be interesting learn more about Tony’s business through the characters running departments and projects in his name. Tim could be that character. He could be someone useful for the Agents or The Defenders.
If The Runaways series gets picked up, Xavin should on the team. Xavin is a Skrull who’s in an interesting situation. Xavin came to earth to marry Karolina Dean, but Karolina is a lesbian. No biggie for a Skrull, since they are shape shifters. So, Xavin shifts into a Black woman. If done right, Xavin will be a fascinating character to watch. The complexities of being a lesbian/POC/male/female could give us a character so multi-layered and beyond anything we expecting.
