Doop is included here because of a short story written by X-Force and Doop creator Peter Milligan. An older man named James Gilray hires a private detective, a Mr. Chandler, to follow his younger wife, Brigit, to find out whom she is seeing.
Chandler tails the woman and discovers that she is having an affair with Doop. When Chandler meets with the husband afterwards he simply tells his client that his wife is not seeing another man. Chandler continues to tail Brigit and Doop, documenting their affair. Gilray returns to confront Chandler after discovering her confessional letter. A drunken Chandler tells Gilray his wife and “Doop” checked in to a Las Vegas hotel and he confesses that he’s fallen in love.
Not long afterwards, Chandler realizes that a crazed Gilray is liable to do something violent and he drives to Vegas. Chandler crashes through the hotel room door just in time to knock out Gilray, gun in hand. Chandler confesses: “Guess I fell in love with you the first time I day you. Give me a chance to make us both happy.” The last page reveals that Chandler is driving away from Vegas into the desert at night with Doop seated next to him, happy smiles and knowing looks all around.
Doop first appeared in X-Force #116 vol. 1 and is affiliated with X-Force which was later renamed X-Statix. Doop’s sexual orientation is further revealed in I (Heart) Marvel: My Mutant Heart #1.
