Marvel has released the comic house’s first drag queen superhero. The drag hero, called Shade, will debut in the fourth issue of the Iceman spinoff. So, what kind of special abilities does a drag queen superhero have? Well, Shade can teleport, using the power of her handheld fan.
“I really wanted this series to push readers to new and better stories about the whole queer experience and how it applies to being both a mutant and a superhero,” the series writer Sina Grace said. “There’s a million different queer perspectives and we’re only scratching the surface.”
Shade will also appear in X-Men’s: Winter’s End.
