Hey Betches! Hi folks! So we've been known to go on hiatuses every now and then... but this last one was a doozy! We're back this week and in rare form. This episode is all ladies all the time. With Marvel's release of Fearless Defenders and their all women X-men, we've got a lot of divas floatin' around.
The betches are coming out of the woodwork nowadays! The ever affable (and my personal crush) Greg Pak (credits include World War Hulk, Phoenix: Endsong, Alpha Flight, etc.) in the latest issue of X-Treme X-men that General James Howlett, the Wolverine of Earth 208, hinted at a relationship between Howlett and his universe's Hercules.
Now, I don't think it's a far cry to say that Buffy has a strong following in the queer community. The messages of empowerment, overcoming oppression, and accepting one's full self all resonate deeply with the experience of queer kids.
We're back this week talking about the new betch on campus, Cullen Row in Batman #12, Kevin Keller and his trip to the London Olympics (and betchy ex-bfs), J.H. William's return to art on Batwoman, Wonder Woman, the Young Masters' guest appearance in Avengers Academy, and the great facepalm of Karma's perpetual victimization in New Mutants... and much more!
In this issue of Scarlet Betch, Anthony and Jason talk about the end of iZombie, the future of Teen Titans, the endless victimization of Karma, and the politics of superhero boyfriends, also we get excited about Bunker/Vibe speculations (Viker? Bibe?).
