LGBT Representation

In #14, Kate Bishop is working as a private investigator in Los Angeles and helps an older gay couple recover stolen orchids for their wedding.


Fraction's depiction of Clint Barton was wildly popular and has had a strong influence on the characterization of many fanworks about the character, including those based in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where he is canonically married rather than single and lives on a farm rather than a Brooklyn apartment. Fraction-based characterization is especially popular for fanworks about the non-canon slash ship Clint Barton/Phil Coulson.
