Character Study: X-Men’s Rictor

Welcome to Queer Fudanshi! Let’s talk. Today, we’re going to talk about X-Men’s Rictor.

New to Monday Posts? Every Monday I pick a random topic to share and talk to you guys about. In addition, each topic can have a varying category.

There are Ramble times where I discuss topics in a more casual fashion such as Why #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyFriend is Plausible, but not Possible, or How Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (AKA The Scorbus Play) Failed the LGBT Community. Lastly, there are Character Studies such as the ones I did for The Mindy Project and Ugly Betty where I discuss Queer characters from media with detail. Are they great representation? Are they not? And why.

So Let’s Get Talking.

Today’s topic is another character study and this time it’s about Marvel and X-Men’s Rictor.

I decided to talk about this character after seeing him appear in the new movie Logan. Though the character is only in his early teenage years and thus isn’t the LGBT-favorite that we have in the comics, his appearance is still noteworthy to use LGBT and BL media fans. Because of that, I thought it’d be great to talk about who the character is and what his comic book history is like.
