Friday May 24, 2019 - 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

This year, in the pages of Iceman, the X-Men introduced Shade, the first drag queen superhero in Marvel comics, and this panel will discuss Marvel's mutants' history through fight or acceptance in a world that hates and fears them, and how LGBTQ characters and themes have factored into that story to bring us to Shade.
