CBN – In the latest issue of its Iceman comic book series, Marvel Comics introduces a new superhero named Shade.

Shade is a mutant superhero drag queen, the first-ever drag queen in a Marvel series.

According to Mashable, Shade “possesses teleportation powers, and “can create and enter a pocket dimension inside her handheld folding fan.”  

Shade will be included in the latest issue of the Iceman series, which was written by an openly gay man named Sina Grace.

The lead character in the Iceman comic book series is named Bobby Drake, who is gay. 

“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,” Grace said in a recent interview with The Advocate.  “There’s a million different queer perspectives and we’re only scratching the surface.”
