Yesterday, a basketball player named Jason Collins became the first openly gay athlete in the big four (NBA, NFL, MLB, and NHL) to acknowledge his sexuality while still playing. Last week, the Psych Ward I did for Marvel was about the same sex teenage couple and Young Avengers teammates Billy Caplan (Wiccan) and Teddy Altman (Hulkling). Related? Almost certainly not. But they both pissed off people on the internet so, there's that.
This past weekend also saw the first big, big convention of the the comic convention, C2E2 in the parlance. I was not there, but I did cover two new announcement, Charles Soule taking over THUNDERBOLTS and AVENGERS ARENA entering "Boss Level." And I wrote them all for you.
