Meet David Rapaport, the casting director on a queer superhero streak
Adam Eterno has some slight super-strength and is invulnerable to everything but Gold. Unfortunately in Adam's world Gold weapons seem to be incredibly common and you can't go for more than a couple of hours before someone with a sword made out of Gold, Gold bullets, or a pet monster made out of gold turns up and tries to kill you! He has peak human attributes, gadgets, and is able to easily throw grown adults through the air and jump to a roof from the ground. He has an army of remote controlled toy soldiers and vehicles that obey his every command that were given to him by a local scientist. The Leopard loses some placings because the character's whole plot outline is lifted wholesale from Spider-Man! The Leopard gained his powers by being scratched by a radioactive Leopard! Cat Girl is a likeable Super-heroine from girls comics "Sally" and "Tammy", she was the daughter of an inept private detective who discovered a mystical Cat suit that enhanced her speed and agility.
Valkyrie Will Officially Be Marvel’s First LGBTQ Superhero
Iconic teen characters aside, David Rapaport is paving the way for all kinds of actors to pursue their dreams. The year-old casting director, who is gay, has been getting attention for his inclusive casting choices. Recently, for example, he's been on a queer superhero streak, casting Ruby Rose as a lesbian Batwoman and Nicole Maines as television's first transgender superhero in Supergirl.
The new year brings a tide of LGBT comic-book characters and storylines—some are existing characters moving to the forefront, others are new creations, and some have just burst out of the four-color closet. At the moment, Marvel has two Icemen: the adult Bobby Drake and his teenage self, who time-traveled from the past. More recently, the younger mutant hero has been exploring his sexuality—even visiting a gay bar.
