I do not understand how MCU Peter Parker being trans is even a theory. A theory needs to have some evidence (circumstantial or otherwise) to hint at the idea that there is validity to that theory. It’s a theory that Loki might come back to life female as this is something from the comics and he is clearly dead.
MCU Peter being trans has…nothing. It’s just a theory that’s come out of nowhere beyond Holland doing drag on a TV show. Drag in Britain is a long tradition of performance, especially on stage but it is not really a signifyer of being transgender.
I’m not even against people headcanoning this because they just want to. I’m just baffled as to why anyone would argue or believe there is anything to this ‘theory’. Maybe MCU Spider-Man will be established as trans but there is nothing at this moment to support that idea.
Iron Man is neither Marvel’s #1 character nor their mascot.
It’s still Spider-Man.
Iron Man is the centerpiece of the MCU but he’s never outsold Spider-Man once since 2008.
Spider-Man generates more news stories than Iron Man in nerd and popular press.
Spider-Man has had 10 TV shows where he is the main or central character, 3 of which have aired since 2008. Iron Man has only been a central character in 8 TV shows in his entire existence and in 6 of those he wasn’t even the main/central character
Spider-Man merchandise outsells all Iron Man and Batman merch COMBINED.
