Marvel Comics’ Gay Young Avengers Share First KissBy Kevin Farrell

Marvel Comics’ characters Wiccan and Hulking have finally kissed within the pages of the publisher’s Young Avengers: The Children’s Crusade #9 .
The characters originally made their debut in 2005′s Young Avengers #1 masquerading as the teen sidekicks of established heroes Thor and Hulk.
The two teen boys have been in a monogamous relationship since their debut, but under superstar writer Allan Heinberg (The OC, Grey’s Anatomy) managed to avoid on-panel smooching until this week, without anyone really seeming to notice that a smooch had yet to happen. All of this is testament to the gay writer’s skill and dedication to fleshing out two of Marvel’s most headline-grabbing characters.
Hot on the heels of Archie Comics’ Kevin Keller’s same-sex, interracial military wedding, the Young Avengers kiss marks another hit in a string of gay comics milestones.
