Oh, come on, you didn’t think I’d let that pass without comment, did you?
- It’s nice to see an acknowledgment that the Hercules of myth had an eye for the fellas as well as the ladies.
- It’s especially nice to see it after the “eromenos” jokes in earlier issues.
- A significant portion of an Uncanny X-Men storyline focused on Northstar’s crush on Iceman. After that, it’s hard to see how having sex with Hercules could be seen as an embarrassment.
- Yes, it did occur to me that revealing this after killing off Hercules is convenient timing.
- (No, I don’t really think Herc will stay dead long. Or that this will ever be addressed again.)
