Gay Website Suddenly Okay With New Hercules Comic



There was some concern that the mythology-established and Marvel-hinted bisexuality of the character Hercules was going to be removed in the upcoming new series from Marvel by Dan Abnett and Luke Ross. It became quite a thing.

But after seeing some of the art, Dan Avery of gay-themed pop culure website NewNowNext suddenly feels a little less alienated, with the headline "Hercules Is Dad AF In New Marvel Comic Book".

Okay, off to the urban dictionary… ah, it's "Dad As F*uck", a play on "Bad As F*ck", basically a hot player, but a little on the older side.

I think. Feel free to school me otherwise.

I am not Dad AF sadly. But it's amazing the difference a missing shirt and a sideways glance can make.
