!! OMG, Marvel introduces non-binary hero Snowflake and twin Safespace to much controversy !!

The New Warriors line-up was announced via YouTube trailer yesterday, introducing us to new characters including Screentime, Trailblazer, B-Negative, and twins Snowflake and Safespace.

Yeah…Snowflake and Safespace.

Safespace is described as a “stereotypical jock,” but with pink hair and a pink costume. His power is creating force fields, but it’s only able to be activated if he’s protecting another person.

His twin, Snowflake, is non-binary, and their more proactive power allows them to create crystallized snowflake-shaped shurikens.

Writer Daniel Kibblesmith explained the thought process behind the new character names, saying that they’re about “teens fighting against labels that have been put on them.”

“It’s the idea that these are terms that get thrown around on the internet that they don’t see as derogatory to take those words and kind of wear them as badges of honor.”

As you can imagine, members of the LGBTQ community and allies aren’t really into this attempt for representation, finding it to be a bit counter-productive. Check out some of the reactions and the first official trailer for the series after the jump!
