Marvel Boy and Hercules Are An Item Now – Guardians Of The Galaxy #6

Hercules is the Greek God writ large in the Marvel Universe, and has been running around since the seventies. A few years ago, it was revealed that the Marvel version of Hercules was bisexual or pansexual, with his lovers including Northstar, as well as Namora, Black Widow, Snowbird, Alfyse, and more. There was also a parallel dimensional relationship between that dimension's Wolverine and Hercules that got a lot of attention. But when Hercules got his own series, then-Marvel Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso played that down, stating that Hercules wasn't bisexual. It didn't go down that well.

But comic book writer Al Ewingwho just the other week gave us the wedding of Hulkling and Wiccan – seems to have taken the challenge in Guardians Of The Galaxy. The preview of the sixth issue below features the post-battle celebration of Marvel Boy and Hercules.
