Marvel’s newest mutant is a drag queen and her name is Shade


You might want to hop on the Iceman spin-off train. Marvel’s making good choices, thanks in large part to writer Sina Grace.

The fourth issue of the recently launched series introduced a new mutant. She possesses teleportation powers, and she can create and enter a pocket dimension inside her handheld folding fan.

Oh yeah, she’s also Marvel’s first drag queen superheroAnd her name is Shade.

Here’s her first appearance, in a page from the comic that Grace helpfully re-tweeted.
