Hell Yeah! New Marvel Show Features Vegan LGBT Superhero… and Did We Mention That She’s Vegan?

Last week the first episode of Marvel show Runaways debuted on Hulu—and Karolina Dean, one of the characters, is a vegan! Praised by some as “the best new TV series you missed,” Runaways joins the likes of Jessica James, Luke Cage, and other character-focused Marvel series.

Hulu describes the show:

Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. What if you found out they actually were? Marvel’s Runaways is the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe—their parents.

Played by Virginia Gardner, Karolina Dean is a lifelong vegan and one of the first openly gay Marvel superheroes seen on screen. Check out the trailer:

According to LiveKindly, “Dean may not be Marvel’s only vegan character on screen in 2018 either, with rumours circulating that Neal Shaara, a devout vegan superhero, will appear in Deadpool 2.”

As veganism grows in popularity, we will undoubtedly see more vegan characters portrayed in mass media. Yet another sign of a changing world, Runaways is getting rave reviews—so be sure to add this to your queue!
