Another Gay First For Marvel

Following in the wake of the first gay couple kissing on a mainstream comics cover (Ultimate Spider-Man #16) I thought I’d share another first, also from Marvel. John Byrne during his run on Fantastic Four used the word “gay” in a typical conversation. The panels here are from #251, dated 2/1983 which put it on sale probably in December of 1982. Tom DeFalco was editor and Jim Shooter was Editor in Chief. Shooter’s position makes me wonder if there was any friction over the word being used.
