Comics, webcomics and graphic novels[edit]

Characters Title Years Notes Country
Alix Sex Criminals 2013–Present Alix is an asexual character introduced in issue #13. The story covers her experiences as a teenager feeling pressured to have sex, and how she feels alien without coming across as broken.[55] While other characters in the story are able to freeze time when they orgasm, Alix freezes time through the adrenaline rush of BASE jumping. United States
Diane Lumberjanes 2014–Present In issue #68, when Hes confesses her love for Diane, Diane says: "...I like you too. But I don't have any interest in kissing or junk like that" and has never had interest in kissing anyone.[56] On the following page, she still says she has romantic feelings toward Hes, but not sexual ones.
Dionysus The Wicked + The Divine 2014–2019 Dionysus is confirmed as asexual in issue 26 of the comic series.[57]
Jughead Jones Archie 1942–Present In Jughead #4 in 2016,[58] a comic by Chip Zdarsky and Erica Henderson, Jughead was established as an asexual character,[28] with Zdarsky saying at the 2015 New York Comic Con that historically Jughead "has been portrayed as asexual. They just didn't have a label for it, so they just called him a woman-hater," even though he isn't a misogynist.[59] Zdarsky added that "asexuality is underrepresented," noting that since he is already asexual, he would "continue to write him that way," and said it is more interesting than "writing him as just being behind everyone developmentally."[60]
Raphael Santiago The Shadowhunter Chronicles 2007–Present In The Red Scrolls of Magic, a fey woman asks Raphael about his sexuality. He responds and says his sexuality is "not interested." Author Cassandra Clare confirmed his asexuality, but has rarely spoken about the subject.[61]
Gaveedra-Seven / Shatterstar Marvel Comics 1991–2007 Shatterstar's co-creators Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza, who created and wrote the character as being asexual from 1991 to 2007, expressed disapproval of later writers ignoring this aspect of his character, Liefeld saying that Shatterstar was meant to be "asexual, and struggling to understand human behavior",[62] and Nicieza stating that "I pretty clearly stated that Shatterstar had no real understanding of sexuality – homo or hetero – and needed to learn about general human nature before he could define his own sexual identity."[63] He added that "I had planned to make Shatterstar think he was in love with Rictor, but only because he simply didn't know any better about what love was. He would have figured, this is my best friend, I care about him, he cares about me, we spend time together, fight together, laugh together – I guess I must be in love with him."[63] Following the duo's departure, Shatterstar's and Rictor's relationship was written as romantic from 2007 onward, against their wishes, with Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada stating that if Liefeld wanted the character's asexuality restored, he would have to "take it up with the next editor-in-chief",[64] to which Liefeld stated that he "can't wait to someday" do.[62] Following Quesada's deparature from Marvel in May 2022, whether the character's asexuality will be restored is unconfirmed.[65]
Nadia van Dyne / Wasp 2016–Present In the second issue of The Unstoppable Wasp, by Jeremy Whitley and Elsa Charretier, Nadia expresses no interest in "making out behind a bleacher".[66] In the same issue, Edwin Jarvis asks if she's interested in "teenager stuff", such as kissing boys.

Gwendolyn "Gwen" Poole 2015–Present Throughout the solo series The Unbelievable Gwenpool by Christopher Hastings, Gwen expresses no interest in physical relationships; while the Fresh Start West Coast Avengers's interpretation of Gwen by writer Kelly Thompson seemingly has her fall on the gray-asexual spectrum instead, having Gwen enter into a romantic relationship with Quentin Quire, Gwen later admits that she only did so because she felt that a romantic plot would make her less of a supporting character in the metafictional narrative of the series and thus less likely to die, having also considered establishing a romantic relationship with America Chavez, and otherwise being uninterested in having one.[67] In Marvel Voices: Pride #1, Gwen is seen wearing the colour scheme of the asexual flag.[68]
Yelena Belova / Black Widow 1995–Present In an interview Yelena's creator, writer Devin K. Grayson confirmed her asexuality when stating "Yelena is... probably more likely to identify as asexual than to follow Nat’s romantic path".[69] Additionally in her solo series titled Black Widow: Pale Little Spider Yelena is asked by another character whether or not she identifies as a lesbian and Yelena responds by stating "No I'm not a lesbian, I'm not anything". In December 2021, Grayson further confirmed Yelena's asexuality and aromanticism; addressing the lack of explicit mention of the terms in the character's storylines, Grayon stated that as a Russian, Yelena "may not have been exposed to terms like “ACE” and “ARO.” [and] If she has thought to question her sexuality at all, I feel pretty confident that she’d keep her conclusions to herself."[70][71]
Connor Hawke DC Comics 1994–Present The upcoming DC Pride 2022 anthology will confirm that Connor is asexual;[72] "Connor is a character who a number of fans have interpreted to be asexual for decades, as he has often shied away from sexual moments or innuendos".[73] The debut story, titled "Think of Me", will be created by an entirely-asexual team consisting of Ro Stein, Ted Brandt, and Frank Cvetkovic.[73][72]
Jonathan Sims The Magnus Archives 2016-2021 The creator Jon Sims confirmed in a Q n A session that the head Archivist is asexual
