Are there any other gay characters in the Marvel U besides Wiccan, Hulkling, Northstar, Anole, and Karma? I think they need to be represented more. Your thoughts?

Yes, there are other gay characters in the MU. Most recently, in Moon Knight there have been a couple of gay characters, one in particular is a friend of Marc Spector. I think they (the two in Moon Knight) are represented pretty well. I don't think the stories in the Marvel Comics will focus solely on a character's gay lifestyle, but I also don't think that Marvel will ignore their homosexual characters either. Homosexual characters will appear in stories as incidental facets of the storylines, not unlike when the drug segments were included way back in Amazing Spider-Man #96, 97, and 98 (if I remember correctly). Harry Osborn's drug addiction was an incidental occurence in the overall story. Appearances of gay characters will be similar I believe. I hope that Marvel continues to do this. I think in some ways Marvel could probably do a little more, but I'm satisfied with their current representations.
