It appears you cannot go anywhere without the multi-Emmy Award winning Drag Race being mentioned.

And now, Marvel Comics has given us one of the best - and unexpected - crossovers ever, and we are loving it.

In the latest edition of 'Marauders', we see Bobby Drake aka Iceman - one of the many out superheroes in the comic franchise - speaking to Storm and Kitty Pryde.

Kitty is explaining how she and Iceman have 'something important to do', which Drake then drops the best line ever.

He says: "I know you're both on the council, but I'm a guest judge on Drag Race this week."

Storm then replies: "Well, clearly, you have the most responsbility."

We hope that Ru will make his comic book debut in the series in all his glory.

Although the Marvel Comics have seen a number of superheroes come out as LGBTQ, including Deadpool, Pyro, Hulkling and Vivian, the movie franchise has yet to introduce an out superhero.

However, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed that the upcoming movie The Eternals will be the first in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to feature an LGBTQ superhero.
