Marvel will introduce two new transgender superheroes

Call them the Dysphoric Duo. reports that Marvel, the comic-book company that has become a kind of national cheerleader and almost a church for transgenderism, is trotting out two new transgender characters: Escapade, aka Shela Sexton, and her partner in fighting crime, Morgan Red.

They are of course the work of a transgender Marvel writer, a towering pink-haired “woman” named Charlie Jane Anders who has a peculiar focus on reaching young people.

Another, even bigger entertainment company, namely Disney, recently discovered the dangers of being a booster for transgenderism and homosexuality and letting its content be determined by sexually deviant employees who cannot separate their sexual preferences from other parts of their lives.

Disney’s and Marvel’s reputations as entertainers of children add to the disturbing nature of their trans activism.

But Marvel is hanging tough, saying in a statement that the not-very-attractive pair’s first adventure will be in a “high-flying, yet intensely personal mission” on the mutant nation of Krakoa in what it calls a special “Pride” comic. The mutant duo will “tear through the Marvel Universe as professional thieves, stealing from criminal and corrupt organizations” until an event changes Escapade’s life, according to a press release.

Do we really want to know what event?

Cementing the fact that the new Marvel characters and story are in fact all about him, Anders explained that both of his characters’ being transgender is a key part of the story. “‘It was really important to me to have a whole community of trans mutants in this comic – not just Shela and Morgan, but others. I wanted it to be super clear that being a mutant is not a metaphor for being trans, and vice versa.”

It did not take long for Anders to reveal his preoccupation with the young. Of the Shela character, he said: “She wants to be there for everybody who’s been left behind, and she wants to help people feel like they can belong and be seen and loved. That was something I really hope everyone reading this comic, especially young trans people, take away from it.”
