Now, Prodigy, who is also known as David Alleyn, has declared in a recent comic book cliffhanger that he is most definitely bisexual. "I'm bi!" he tells Hunkling, after they share a same-sex kiss.
It's not the first male-male kiss in the comic book series, but it's a very definitive coming out as bisexual for a character. And, Prodigy is also black, so the down-low stigma is even more groundbreaking.
Prodigy did have a relationship with a guy, the character Surge, and in a recent issue was sharing a kiss with Hulking, who pointed out that everyone thought he was gay.
Prodigy kept his powers closeted and seemed ambiguous about his sexuality until now.
