The Young Avengers - A Marvel Comics Series with two main gay characters!

The Young Avengers: The Children's Crusade by series creators Allan Heinberg and Jim Cheung

When Wiccan's reality-altering powers begin to rival those of the Scarlet Witch, the young hero sets out on a quest to find her that spans the Marvel Universe and pits Wiccan against both the Avengers and the Young Avengers. But will Wiccan's desire to solve the mystery of his parentage be his salvation or his undoing? With three words, the Scarlet Witch changed the world forever...and now with her return, nothing will ever be the same for the Marvel Universe. 

Yup.  It's a gay teen kiss from the Young Avengers: The Children's Crusade.  How cool is that!?

My thanks to the reader who recommended this - they also wrote:

Two main characters on the team are gay, and I think that for the younger people who are into comics and such would really appreciate reading their story. It's pretty cool too because in their debut comic, one of the teen's parents are very excited that he finally found love and came out to them. ...Sorry if it's weird that I'm telling you about this, but I feel that these books would just make a lot of young people feel more comfortable about themselves. Marvel, a big comic book company, accepts all types of love, and wants to let people know that it's okay to love whoever you want. I just think that's really cool. :)

It's not weird at all - it's wonderful that you shared - and now more people get to know about it!
