In the most ambitious crossover event in human history, RuPaul’s Drag Race and the Marvel series X-Men have officially collided.

Fans might be patiently – ever so patiently – waiting for trans and queer superheroes to make their big screen debuts, but the Marvel comic books are cluttered with LGBT+ superheroes.

In the latest edition of ‘Marauders’, it sees gay mutant Bobby Drake, also known as Iceman, chatting to Ororo Munroe (Storm) and Kitty Pryde.

RuPaul’s Drag Race is canon in the Marvel universe and we have to stan it. 

Kitty explains how she and Drake have “something important to do”.

“I know you’re both on the council,” Drake replies, “but I’m a guest judge on Drag Race this week.”

Munroe then hits back: “Well, clearly, you have the most responsibility.”

He does, for he’s doing the Lord’s work by appearing on the show.

Fans rejoiced at learning that the show is canon in the Marvel universe, and they couldn’t imagine anyone better than Drake, a mutant with the ability to manipulate ice, to be a guest judge.

The Drag Race queens would undoubtedly be on thin ice if this where real life, but we’re sure they’d find a way to keep their cool.

But questions begin to pile-up here.

Does that mean that all the queens exist in the Marvel universe? Will they be making an appearance anytime soon?

Will Ru herself be starring?

Will Shade, Marvel’s first ever drag-queen superhero, be appearing on Drag Race? Did she compete on the show?

Considering that Shade herself was introduced to the series presenting at New York City Pride in the Iceman comics, and she has the ability to teleport with the flick of her fan, we can totally see her on the panel.

“There’s a million different queer perspectives and we’re only scratching the surface,” explained Marvel writer Sina Grace at the time of Shade’s debut.
