Happy Pride, Zalagang!

As a special treat for the season, I'm publicly releasing last year's most popular CEREBRO Secret File — a deep dive with CEREBRO's Official Lesbian Correspondent Sara Century on Marvel's first lesbian hero, Dr. Vicki Montesi of the Darkhold Redeemers. Hope you love!

Created by writer Chris Cooper and introduced in 1992 as the protagonist of Darkhold: Pages from the Book of Sins, Vicki leads a group informally known as the Darkhold Redeemers, part of the early 90s Marvel Magic franchise called The Midnight Sons. She's an Italian doctor apparently born into the Montesi family, a mysterious and ancient lineage of holy protectors tied to the Vatican... but her true nature threatens to end all reality.

Features tangents about Witches (starring Jennifer Kale, Topaz, and Satana Hellstrom), Mary Jane Watson, and whatever else came up mid-conversation.

(Content Advisory: Vicki's story includes homophobia, ableism, and involuntary pregnancy. Darkhold is a horror book and has lots of upsetting stuff in it in general.)
