      I brought up Felicia because both characters are apparently bisexual, albeit in the phoniest, most Hollywood way possible. If we're going for the character with the terminal illness, though, then I can't think of any with Thirteen's demeanor...

    I agree about the bisexuality being phony in both cases. It's being used more to titillate the reader/viewer, rather than being an actual character trait.

At least in Felicia's case I'm not even sure if her bisexuality was used to tittilate the reader since there was so little mention of it so far. In Spider-Girl, where it was introduced, Felicia's lesbian (and interracial) life-partnership(1) apparently was so controversial that it was completely ignored after a handful of stories, and what has there been seen of it in the mainstream Marvel Universe apart from one throwaway comment in one issue of "The Evil That Men Do"?

(1) Which was mainly shown as a factor that alienated her daughter from Felicia, although it would seem that Felicity was angry at her mother for having a happy relationship with any person other than her father (Flash Thompson) and not so much for that person being a woman (although at least on person who wrote to Marvel to object to Felicia being in a relationship with another woman liked to see Felicity as sharing her own view on homosexuality).
