X-Factor won a GLAAD award

Peter David posted on his site that his book X-Factor won a GLAAD media award for positive portrayal of gay and lesbian characters.  Unless you’ve been living under a B-list rock, you know that X-Factor shocked readers by reintroducing longtime X-Force member Shatterstar by having him lock lips with Rictor.  Since that happened, the two have had one of the more interesting angst-filled relationships around the mutant world without resorting to homosexual stereotypes and cliches.

Congratulations to Peter David!  It’s a shame Rob Liefeld’s just going to undo it first chance he gets.
