The Alpha Flight toy figures that are not for the family

USA Today's written about the toys to be sold at the latest Comicon, and is propagandizing in favor of a set of action figures based on Alpha Flight, including the long-tarnished Northstar. They say:
Diamond Select: The X-men's Northstar has been in the news lately for marrying his boyfriend, and now is your chance to get him in Minimates toy form. He'll be available in a brand-new Alpha Flight set ($20), featuring the Canadian team of Guardian, Northstar, Marina and Puck, so your kids (or you) can live out epic superhero adventures in the Great White North.
After they sullied Northstar with such a heavy-handed emphasis on his being homosexual, right down to the gay wedding? I don't think so. No parents who consider that a bad example for their children are going to shell out 20 bucks after the latest embarrassment involving the X-Men.

At least the Northstar action figure wasn't built by Lego. Indeed, it would only be a blemish on their own family-friendly image, and could draw the frowns of sensible minded parents to them for all the wrong reasons.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
