Most people are aware of this, but just in case a couple of you missed it, Kid Flash actor Keiynan Lonsdale aka Wally West, recently came out as bisexual. He said this in a wonderful post on Instagram and retweeted on Twitter.
 

This man is awesome! I feel like he’s been underused on the Flash series, and I was hoping that his character would not be completely heterosexual. Still, that does not mean that he cannot be a bisexual character and that he could get a huge push next season. With that, here’s some awesome pics of Keiynan.

In case you were not aware, another male bisexual actor on Flash was Andy Mientus who plays Pied Piper. Coincidentally, the Pied Piper is a gay character himself.
 

Hercules is not Bisexual (3).Movie_Snapshot

Yeah I couldn’t let this go. I did blogged about topic earlier, but I’ve had a couple people request to do a video on the topic. If you are not aware of this, Hercules is very much a bisexual character. Not just in the comics, but in history. Marvel Editor in Chief, Axel Alonso has stated that despite his past, the Greek god is only after women from this point onward. Why? Seriously, why would he make the character straight? Are straight males afraid of picking up a title that has a bisexual male as the main protagonist?

Hercules Gay 2

I think this is a waste of an opportunity to show a very different character that could be opened up to so many new storylines and to include a new audience that would be interested in reading a character that has a very rich backstory already established.

Hercules is getting his own comic book series in November from Marvel Comics. This is pretty cool being that Marvel is lacking in the bisexual male department for headliners. They exist, many are women, but we have a couple males here and there. The only problem is that Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso has stated that despite Hercules’ origins and past speculations, Hercules will not be bisexual. That seems a bit disheartening as I feel like Hercules would be the PERFECT bisexual character to be given his own title. He is literally Hercules from mythology, which all Greek heroes/gods were seemingly bisexual if you read up on them.

Let’s forget that Iolaus (who you probably remember as Hercules’ sidekick in – Hercules The Legendary Journeys) was his lover at one point. Although if you tell straight guys that liked this show about the real Iolaus, they totally freak out on you. No kidding, it happened to me when I told my friend who was a Xena/Hercules fanatic. He cursed me out and called me a liar and that I was just trying to ruin the series for him. But he was completely on board with Xena and Gabrielle as being a lesbian couple.

And we have had an alternate version of Hercules that was in a relationship with Wolverine in X-Treme X-Men. That cause huge waves among some comic book fans. Others saw it as something that would make total sense for their characters and what they had experienced together. Interesting, if their gender roles were reversed and it was two women that had become lovers, no one would care. Which has happened before when a lesbian Mary Jane Watson as Spider-Woman was introduced in Exiles. Not a single angry person was found anywhere. Hypocrisy at its best.

Northstar

And if you’re not aware, Hercules in the ‘regular’ Marvel Universe (Universe 616) has been hinted at. In fact, Marvel’s most notable gay character, Northstar, has been hinted at having a thing with the Greek god. It was probably meant more as a joke, but still it counts!

Daken

It’s unfortunate that Marvel couldn’t just allow Hercules to be a bisexual character openly. The stories could be very similar to other bisexual characters where their sexuality is not a big issue but is something that could come into play depending on their needs for the progressing of the story. Look at Daken’s (Wolverine’s bisexual son) character. He used his sexuality both ways. He used men and women to get what he wanted. Granted, his pheromones made his victims feel what he wanted them to feel, including them wanting him sexually.

Anyways, what do you think? Is Marvel playing it too safe or you think they should be taking the dive and just out Hercules as a bisexual Greek god? I have a feeling that we will still see lots of innuendos and sexual suggestions that he is in fact a bisexual man.
