WONDER LESBIAN POWERS, ACTIVATE!
An AfterEllen.com reader (thanks Bernard!) tipped me off that "two lesbian superheroines of Marvel Comics will be the lead characters in their own mini-series this summer. It’s part of the sci-fi stories called ‘Annihilation: Conquest,’ to be released this summer. An alien superheroine, named Phyla Mar-vell, will take up the mantle of the late superhero, Quasar. She’s joined by her girlfriend, Moondragon, an Earthling superheroine with psychic powers. Their comic will be called ‘Annihilation: Conquest, Quasar.’"
