    A Gay Captain America???

    Discussion in 'Entertainment' started by Lewdog, May 25, 2016.

    So there are several articles out there where fans want Marvel to have Captain America come out as gay. Some fans thing Cap's friendship with Bucky Barnes should be... "more than friends." So what do you guys think? Seriously.

    I thought Captain America was always gay...Or maybe I am thinking of a different comic character.

    They'd have to change universes or first movie romance is pointless.

    Well they would not only have to change his romance with Peggy Carter... but also his new romance.

    Pretty sure most fans don't want Cap to be gay, they want him to be bi. Oh misleading headlines :rolleyes:

    Why is this an issue? Does it matter if Captain America wants to bone whoever he chooses? Will this affect his ability to kick ass and be a hero? Sadly this has raised more questions than answers. @Lewdog damn it why did you bring forth this conundrum? What next the Hulk wants to put on a pretty pink dress and sell delicate fine china? O_O :p

    Well you had to wonder about Captain America... since he is always seen carrying a shield made of vibrators... err I mean vibranium.

    To treat this seriously, the groundwork has actually been laid for a believable Stucky romance. It wouldn't necessarily be an out-of-nowhere Sudden Sexuality thing. Retcons and AUs would be unnecessary, as sexuality is actually fairly fluid. Being a product of his time, Cap just may have never considered homosexual attraction to be possible. It's one of those Things That Don't Happen. Whatever he felt for Bucky was friendship, camaraderie, and hero worship from his pre-serum days. But, maybe, living in today's world and being exposed to new ideas and being made to think about things, maybe he starts seeing Bucky in a new light, and comes to see that his feelings for Bucky are more than platonic. It doesn't mean he's gay, or that his relationship with Peggy was a sham, it just means that what Person A is feeling for Person B is deeper and stronger than he previously believed.
    It would be a really fascinating story point, and having an A-list character like Cap being canonically on the LGBT+ spectrum would be great for opening people's minds, and would give people on said spectrum much-deserved representation.

    Sure, why not?

    Oooooh, when Captain America throws his mighty shiiiield...
    All those who opposes his shield must yiiiieelllld.....


    But seriously, why not? I honestly wouldn't mind seeing him smooching on other men. I think he and Tony Stark would make an excellent couple.

    It'd never work out between the two.

    Tony would always be making new 'toys' and Cap is just too old fashioned for that.

    Plus, didn't their last breakup start a civil war?

    For anyone not up on their slashy shipping, Science Boyfriends is Tony & Bruce.

    Deadpool does canonically have a thing for Thor, though.

    I figured out out, the hulk and Cap get together.

    Tony only loves himself anyways.
