"Things that happen with Apollo resonate throughout the entire series, though I’m hesitant to say whether or not he has an ongoing presence in the book. However, I will say anything that goes down between them is very telling to my experience as a queer person and the things that I’ve seen in my life. They are largely each other’s first relationship, and a big part of the book is Midnighter realizing he doesn’t even know how to define himself as a gay man without Apollo, and I think that’s something many people in the real world face." -- Steve Orlando

I genuinely do like this. I like the way Middy is written, I like the way his relationships are written. I like that he's with several people, I like that he's figuring himself out this way. It's one of the first things I've ever seen that's even a little reflective of my experiences as an out gay woman - though I'm a lesbian, I tend to, y'know, nestle in more than he does, rather than bouncing around. I, just, I really, really like this.

So... that's Apollo with the (other) bad haircut?

I get what he's saying in his comment about their relationship at the top, but I'm still pressed about it.

Apollo has a blonde crew cut now.

I think he looks more like Captain America than Apollo.

Haha, yeah. With the exception of when Starlin took over, he hasn't looked like Apollo once since the New52 got him.
