Nice work, I love your art. The characters gays of DC Comics would also give a beautiful image

Isn't Karolina with Julie Powers now?

But yeah, she's the only one who was actually *married* to her partner when she was with Xavin.

It's complicated. I believe Xavin had to leave to solve some political problem back home, Afterwards Karolina and Julie started dating (me personally, I ship all three of them 'cause I like Karolina with both Xavin and Julie).

That was informative... Not sure about some of them as most I never heard of or never developed enough to really say it was impressive/not impressive and the new secret wars may result in them being "wiped" out but it allowed me to update my info even if I am no longer the comicgeek I used to be.. I've been a otaku anime geek for many years now but I do like to get back to my roots as a fan geek once in awhile..

I think I became a fangeek because I never had much interest in anyone real in any manner, shape or form.. Maybe I should've born a machine.. I never did understand the need to be all romantic/whatever but at least I got nothing against anyone being happy with who they are and what way they wish their life.. Each to their own I guess...

DC has very few characters to include. Bat Woman, Question, Bunker and an alternate reality Green Lantern. The rest are supporting cast; not heroes, anti-heroes or villians.

Wonder Woman (bi) , Tasmanian Devil (gay), Obsidian (gay), Ice Maiden (bi), Shrinking Violet and Lightning Lass (both bi), Element Lad and Sean Erin (bi and transwoman who transitioned back to gay man, because it's the future and sexual reassignment can be done with a pill), Grace Choi and Thunder (bi and lesbian).

technically Xavin is a male shapechanger so.......yup otherwise it pleases me to see some of these characters as Marvel seems to have lost them. Runaways was a great series as was young avengers

What I love about this piece are that the characters' individual poses also reflect their personalities in some way (i.e. Northstar looking slightly stand-offish, Anole just being Anole, etc.). I also adore the soft colors of the background and how the white outfits make everyone stand out even more against the rainbow tones of the sky and ocean behind them. I imagine it must have been tricky to draw a somewhat rainbow-colored character against a rainbow-colored background without having too jarring color contrasts or the character being 'absorbed' by the background coloring, but you did a marvelous job.

I find it very hard to pick a favorite pose or character because they all turned out being simply gorgeous, although I am a little in love with the white-on-white flower detail on Anole's swimming trunks/shorts/whatchamaycallit.

This is very beautiful piece (as you probably know by now). Thank you for sharing.

How about Kitty Pride? I know she is currently has a relationship with Peter (Colossus). But back in the day, during Claremont tenures. There is always implied that she is a bi. Especially during her stint at Excalibur.
