May I ask for some helpfrom my LGBT comic book/super hero fan friends?

About 15 or 20 years ago, I remember that a member of Alpha Flight, the Canadian Marvel super hero group, came out as Gay and was identified in the news stories at the time as the first openly Gay super hero.

I remember seeing some panels from the issue where he reveals his sexuality in the reports. He's a young guy with a black and white costume and I think his twin sister is also on the team. If I recall, in the panels I saw, he was defending a young man from some Gay bashers and at one point declares "...for I, Too, am Gay"!

Any help available? Thank you in advance!

PEACE!

3. Northstar was also supposed to have AIDS...

But they changed it to some kind of mystical disease that he got because of his (then) elfin heritage or something.
