Series artist, Brett Booth has revealed that Bunker will debut in the 3rd issue of the series. The character’s real name is Migueel Jose Barragan, an openly gay teen from Mexico.

On his blog, Booth has posted Lobdell’s description of Bunker:

His real name is Miguel Jose Barragan. He was raised in a very small Mexican village called El Chilar. He was very loved by his family and the village as well — and they were as accepting of his homosexuality as they were to his super powers when they first manifested. To that end he grew up in an angst-free environment. He was born out of the closet and so he has a very refreshing outlook on life.

The character will be seen as an “happy-go-lucky” character, compared to the angst-ridden personalities that seem to plague most LGBT characters.
