Trans anarchists: Inside Marvel’s pride comic for kids

The free comic books promoted by Marvel during Pride Month were targeted at kids aged 13 and over, but contained a variety of messages about gender and sexuality.

As part of its efforts towards inclusivity, Marvel has given away free copies of its “Marvel Voices” comics to distributors. Free Comic Book Day.

The issue, which focused on gender and sexuality, was targeted at teenagers and also featured a dedicated page on Black and “Indigenous” stories and creators.

Following a Bollywood-themed Spider-Man and a female hero named Spider-Gwen, the glow-in-the-dark Spider-Man faced off against a pretty interesting foe.

The comic depicts a group of villains attacking Stark Pharmaceuticals, whose leader is depicted as a “trans woman” named Peach.

“Peach. Leader of the commune. Transgender woman. Hacker. Yorkie lover. Currently very annoyed,” the comic reads.

After the group realizes that all they have left are needles and syringes, the transgender leader decides they should leave before the security system is restored.

When Spider-Man arrives, it becomes clear that the group is actually a collective of queer anarchists who see themselves as working-class heroes.

“A commune. A Robin Hood-esque group of strange, human, anarchist people living and working together.”

In addition to the comparison of a transgender person stealing from a medical supply store, Spider-Man himself pointed out that men who identify as women can’t take part in the conversation.

“Stand back, Spiderman! You’re not hurting anyone and I don’t want you to be the one to start the attack,” the criminal said.

“Come on. Breaking and stealing is easy, but having a friendly conversation isn’t,” Spider-Man replied.

“There is no requirement of a particular race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion or planetary origin to be a hero.”

The comics are relentlessly loaded with ideological messages, including full-page features of various superheroes, and creator Angelique Roche has written that since the 1960s, Marvel’s teams have “evolved to reflect the world around us.”

“Our heroes and their stories have proven what we’ve known all along: you don’t need to be of a particular race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion or planetary origin to be a hero,” she wrote.

Park Place editor John F. Trent said the cartoon was an attempt to corrupt children and lead them to despair.

“On a storytelling level, they can set up alternate universes with these characters and then bring them into the main universe, replacing other characters like Captain America, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk or Thor,” he said.

Pride Comics consists almost entirely of alternate timelines, examples include “Earth-65” with a female Spider-Man character, and “Earth-50101” featuring an Indian Spider-Man performing in Bollywood films.
