Northstar was one of the first openly gay characters in comic books, and is still seen as one of the biggest names among fictional LGBT characters. Although creator John Byrne always intended Northstar to be gay, it wasn't mplied until 1992 when he finally came out in Alpha Flight #102. Just last year, he married his partner in the pages of Astonishing X-Men #51, and continues to be one of the coolest damn fictional Canadians out there.
