It is not much of a secret that Jean-Paul Beaubier, aka Northstar, is a gay Mutant in the Marvel Universe.

There once was a very short lived Marvel Comics superhero by the name of Freedom Ring. His name was Curtis Doyle and he was created by Robert Kirkman of Walking Dead fame. Unfortunately for Curtis Doyle, he was a novice at being a superhero hero and fell in a horrible humiliating way, even for an inexperienced superhero.
