Characters Changing Sexuality? New X-Men Comics? And Other Questions

today on the show it’s an old-school Q&A
video so you sent me questions I’m gonna answer them [Intro Music] quickly before we get into
today’s video I’ve converted my old gaming channel into a Sims channel the
first videos up I’m really happy with it I make Sims 4 mods like I make my own
careers for my Sims, because that’s the kind of thing I like to do in my free
time I like to download mods so it’s gonna be a different kind of Sims 4
youtube let’s play where I’m making my own stuff and maybe you guys can view
how that stuff works and if you’re into The Sims I’ll try and upload it
somewhere so you guys can download it I’m currently in the process of
uploading like A “Sims High Wrestling Team” Mod so uh yeah, please come and check it out Juancarlos asked are there shows growing up that got prematurely canceled that
you would have wanted to continue the answer for this one is yes absolutely
the first one that comes to mind is W.I.T.C.H i have actually been playing with
the idea of doing a video on W.I.T.C.H so please let me the comments down below if
that’s something you want to see but yeah I really liked W.I.T.C.H a lot, I felt
like the storyline was quite deep for the demographic it was targeted at,
and I recently rewatched it just to see if it still holds up and it absolutely does
I actually spent a lot of my childhood in the Canary Islands and W.I.T.C.H was huge in
the Canary Islands I don’t know what it was but W.I.T.C.H was everywhere so I was
actually more used to the Spanish dub of W.I.T.C.H than the English dub though I have
seen quite a bit of the English dub as well but all of my W.I.T.C.H comics are in
Spanish and I don’t speak much Spanish whatsoever like I speak enough to get by
if you asked me to say the words like nah nah ain’t happening for your blank
was blank series could you do Wolverine and the x-men Avengers Earth’s Mightiest
Heroes or persona 5 the animation please that was a two-parter question I’m
only gonna answer the first half because it’s a very quick answer the answer is
yes I am doing any comic book cartoon that you can imagine like I’m going ham
on this series, I had so much fun making that x-men
Evolution video and it was received so well that honestly this series is like lit a
spark in me like you guys have no idea Darkmagicianmagic says favorite Nico Minoru spell I’m really really fond of zombie not basically what happened in
the comic is a bunch of people in LA were turned into zombies
Nico wanted to cure them of their zombification by saying a zombie not but
instead she makes our massive knot of zombies and it creates a giant zombie
that’s attacking the runaways The third run of The Runaways didn’t have many
great moments like it wasn’t the worst run but it definitely wasn’t the best so
when it was good it was really good by comparison to everything else that was
going on around it so moments like that are really precious to me aside
from that I know it’s a bit corny but the series of spells that brought Gert
back to life that sort of like hit home for me I think
that experience of seeing Gert come back to life it was very very different if
Gert had been dead for you for near enough 10 years or if you’d only
recently got into the runaways like for me Gert has been dead for a long time
and I’d honestly resigned myself to her and never coming back because she
was dead she was one of those characters that wasn’t that popular that was just
dead and then she came back and I wasn’t expecting it and I’m really happy she is
back she adds in such a unique dynamic to the current run of The Runaways that
I can honestly say it wouldn’t be the same without her so we have Nico’s
spells to thank for that Golgoatha says have you been keeping up
with Jonathan Hickman’s House of X and powers of X if so what your thoughts on
the future of the x-men based of what you’ve read so far I don’t really want
to get too much into this question because I do have dedicated videos for
both of these planned but yes I am keeping up with it if you guys don’t
know if you’re not reading the comics basically house of X and powers of X
and all the x-men comics that are going on at the moment I like a step back in
the right direction for the x-men it’s like a breath of fresh air a return to
form the x-men have been in sort of a weird place since like I would say
Messiah Complex some people would say since Avengers vs. x-men I would take it
back a little bit earlier than that they just haven’t been the x-men and this is
the first time in a while where everyone in the x-men fandom is basically saying
yes this is why we love the x-men this is what should have been happening
this entire time so yes I am keeping up with it and I’m very very excited to see
where the x-men are going, don’t want to talk about my theories just yet just because
I believe these are limited runs not 100% sure I believe they’re limited
runs I want to wait till the end so I can be like oh I thought this was gonna
happen because if I put it out there I’ll just get disappointed but these are
very very good runs of the x-men if you want to get into reading the x-men start
here start now now is a really good time to start Paul Brown says how could you
not like Legion like this *takes a freaking sip babe* Gabe Mercedes says why do you have a
habit of wanting to change straight characters gay or bisexual examples
Red Devil, Conner Kent, Tim Drake, etc so I honestly feel like this question comes
down to a difference in perspective and this perspective is just that straight
people don’t understand what being in the closet is like or what it means
because you can’t without being told so this is me explaining it *laugh* when I say I
would like for this character to come out as gay or bisexual or pansexual or
whatever I’m not saying that I want their sexuality to change I’m saying
that I believe based on what I’ve already read of the character that they
are gay bisexual pansexual or whatever and have been all along and they’re in
the closet or have not realized this about themselves yet and people have
argued well if you want gay characters or bisexual characters or whatever why
not just make new ones and I say yes we should make new gay characters that just
come as gay but also we should have existing characters come out as gay
because people that you’ve known your entire life might come out as gay they
might come out as bi there needs to be a balance to tell the story of LGBT people
realistically in comics and reflect our stories realistically and obviously when
you’re trying to represent a group you should try to reflect their stories
realistically even if it does involve superheroes so for example Tim Drake I
believe he’s bisexual just based on what I’ve read of him and based on my own
experiences of being in the closet there’s a lot of similarities there I
could make an entire video on the number of similarities but there is just
aspects of himself he’s consistently holding back and he can only really open
up when he’s around Connor and I was the
same way there are a number of characters that I believed to be just
straight and that includes Batman Superman Green Lantern
Wolverine Damian Wayne you know there’s a whole plethora of characters that I’m
just like they’re straight they’re straight come on they’re
straight so again just for emphasis it’s not that I want to change straight
characters into being gay or bisexual pansexual it’s that I believe they’ve
been gay pansexual bisexual all along and they
deserve a coming out story skull with a bow says have you done boxing do you
know if it helps with mental health issues so I’ve never done boxing but
when I lived in America I did do wrestling and I did find it really
helped me out a lot and it’s one of the things that sort of got me into fitness
and working out if you guys don’t know I am a fully qualified level 4 personal
trainer I don’t work as a personal trainer anymore it’s one of the things
that I would like to return to wrestling is not as prominent in the UK as it is
in the US like when we have wrestling it’s less scholastic and more WWE and
I’m not really interested in WWE wrestling like I don’t even watch it but
like freestyle scholastic greco-roman that’s the kind of stuff that I’m really
into and I would like to return to that just there’s nowhere near me that does
it so I don’t know how I could be trained in it Geovxr says what do you think about the Umbrella Academy is it good or is it bad
and do you think it’s close to the comic so is it close to the comic no and I’ll
tell you for why I do not like the Umbrella Academy comic I don’t really
like Gerard Way’s writing to begin with so I am a bit biased here but his
writing and me just do not get along we are very different wavelengths the show
I love I started watching the Umbrella Academy show thinking this would be a
lot for like 10 minutes and then Ireally enjoyed it and I binge watched the entire thing in less than a
day like it was so good the part that really got me and made me
say okay this show is really good is the dancing in the moonlight scene like you
guys have no idea how much I love that song and then it popped up I had no idea
it was gonna pop up and like my little heart broke because of the storyline
around the episode like that that that was so good
10 out of 10 would recommend the Umbrella Academy show love that favorite
character Klaus Wicked.one6 says do I think Titans season 2 is a flop personally I didn’t even like Titans season 1 I feel like it’s made the
mistake that x-men movies make where it’s missed the core of what the source
material is and so I don’t support it I haven’t watched season 2 I won’t watch
season 2 I finished all of season 1 I really didn’t like it I do just want to
say though if you enjoy the Titans TV show don’t feel bad about liking it like
this is just my perspective and my point of view I’m in no way saying you can’t like it
or you’re a terrible person for liking it I just feel from my perspective as a
person that’s been reading the comics since I was 3 years old it doesn’t carry
the core over and when you’re adapting something I personally believe it needs
to carry the core essence of what it’s adapting over and if it doesn’t it’s a
failure Zack Hargreaves says have you ever seen
any of the British superhero shows from the naughties them being misfits my hero
and no heroics so I never saw my hero and no heroics but I did watch misfits a
lot I own all the seasons on DVD I love misfits so much you guys want me
to cover misfits just let me know I cuz I will cover that in an instant that show was
so good, if you guys don’t know what it is basically about these teens that end up
with these powers one of them can hear other people’s thoughts one of them can
travel through time like it’s so good because they’re so unprepared in every
way and it’s so raw and the tone of this show is near identical to the tone of
the British Invasion comics from the late 80s and I felt like that was
something that hadn’t been around for a while at that point and then it came in
the form of a TV show and it was so good like I wish more comic book TV shows
would be made like misfits because misfits was so good and so many of the
kind of TV shows are like meh to bad [ITS SUPER EFFECTIVE] OK guys that is it for today so do you have

  1. Honestly I forgot about Misfits, it was such a good show, would love to hear your commentary on the highs and lows of the show.

  2. I would love to see your video on Tim Drake's sexuality not only because he is my favorite hero of all time, but also because (and this could be my own sexuality tainting my view) I view Tim as Asexual/Bi-romantic.

  3. I just hope they keep Iceman the omega pussy punching pimp in the MCU, Marvel needs to stop changing OG characters. Make new ones

  4. Can you please make that video of why you think Tim Drake is gay?

    Drake is one of my favorite Robins (along with Dick) and I’m really interested in your perspective.

  5. Please please please do a w.i.t.c.h. Video. I also loved this show so much. I feel like it could have gone on for longer?! If I remember correctly they were chosen to meet and protect other worlds. So they could have made it a generational thing. Or maybe as years went on they each decided just stop? Let’s say will stayed. But Irma, Cornelia, taranee, and will leave. But then they all have kids and the three come back and it starts all over with these kids as guardians.

  6. btw I met Robert Sheehan. he wa s standing out side a club and me and my friend walked on over and spoke to him. is he a favorite in your tv show you''ve seen.

  7. W.i.t.c.h was big everywhere even in the U.S it was one of my favorite growing up I still remember when they had the w.i.t.c.h McDonald's kid meal toys I wanted all of them but only ended up being able to get Cordelia 😄

  8. I'd love to see you cover Misfits 😮
    I've never heard of it but the way you describe and the love you show makes me think it must be good 😂

  9. Fuck you! Retconning a character is dishonorable. I also think you are obsessed with your own sexuality, and that's pitiful, it indicates desperation.

  10. would LOVE to see a story on WITCH. Did you read the comics? I have a theory about Will and Elyon but yeah WITCH is amazing

  11. I just hope they keep Iceman the omega pussy punching pimp in the MCU, Marvel needs to stop changing OG characters. Make new ones

  12. So why don't they just make gay characters instead of fucking up our shit. Like ice man who got at women not hiding in a closet.

  13. What do you think of the modern LGBT alphabet movement on society? Do you think it's gone too far? Or do you think it hasn't gone too far enough?

  14. First off as a gay man, yes on the closet topic. And Misits is my love… but also Dawn of X is the continuation of HOX/POX.

  15. Good video! I would love a Misfits video. What a great show! I personally didn't enjoy the last season as much as the earlier seasons. Overall I would like getting your take on the series as a whole.

  16. I just wanted to mention one part of the video. Thank you for talking about Tim the way you did. I look up to and relate to him a lot. As a gay man, I do see a lot of myself in him and the way he interacts with Kon is very telling. I saw you posted this video and since you're the person who got me into the robins, I was very nervous to see what you'd say. When you talked about how you'd seen what I'd seen as well, it made me feel way less crazy. Keep up the awesome videos. I'd love to see more content on closeted superheros from you!

  17. I disagree with the tim drake arguement but it does give an interesting perspective. I think they have a close bond thats more like brothers similar to the relationship i have with my best friend. Though, it would probably be more believable than the Bobby Drake situation, which makes me incredibley uncomfortable cause it reminds me of being outed

  18. I'm surprised you would think Damian was straight, as he's still very young and nothing has really been established for him as of yet. Not that I have an opinion on that either way, but I think he's just too young to make a call yet.

  19. 6.46 Damian wayne? Hell no he is either aro or gay… (ik there is a huge different between aro and gay but I can't see him with anyone except jon and if not jon the no one)

  20. I don't know how much time you have for new anime. But I think Snow White with the Red Hair is something you might like if you haven't heard of it already

  21. Wait… wolverine? Straight? Okay that one I doubt. Wolvie has been alive a long time & in sure he's experimented 😉

  22. Do a tim drake bisexual video. I agree but i want to know if we come up with the same reason. And he and connor are totally a thing.
