Pride Profile: Comet


:00_dc_pride:Pride Profile: Comet. Warning if you haven’t read Peter David’s Supergirl this is spoiler city. And, the entire series is really, really worth the read. Andrea Martinez struggled coming to terms with her sexual identity leading to a failed marriage, rejection by her parents, substance abuse, and life risking behavior. Facing death on the slopes of Mt Everest, Andrea was saved by superpowered human-horse hybrid Comet/Andy Jones. Merging into a single being, Comet and Andrea became friends with Supergirl and eventually found true love. David Peter introduced Comet/Andrea in Supergirl vol. 4 #10 and explored issues of sexual and gender identity throughout this 1990s series.
