They said he is bisexual and they did have a relationship.

But after the incident in the Mojo Universe, they seem to fall apart.

They do make a handsome couple he he he but kinda like the hulking and asgardian.

No, Fabian Nicieza has stated he is asexual as in non-sexual.

Asexuality is a sexual orientation describing individuals who do not experience sexual attraction.

Do you mean from this scene, when Madrox accused Ric of having sex with Shatterstar...?
No Caption Provided
Personally, I can see why the gay rumours are there, but I don't buy it.  Shatterstar never had a sexual encounter in his life.  He'd already destroyed the puppet of Windsong that Arcade had to try and force 'Star to fight Adam X.  Then when Rictor dragged out to a nightclub and some random girl called Stekkie (seriously, what kind of a name is that?) felt him up he got scared and ran off.  When Ric caught him up he admitted that he'd never felt such stirrings inside of him before (and Ric confessed he was still a virgin).  So to Shatterstar, Rictor was the only person he'd spent any time around.  They were close, but not that close.  

In the awful X-Force Annual '99, they were on the road together.  Rictor woke up to find Shatterstar had been working out for hours, and was amazed that he (himself) was awake before noon.  I wasn't a case of 'Mmmm... I woke up to find a sexy man working out in front of me & now I've got the horn'.  It was 'damnit, go back to sleep you workout freak'.

Marvel hasn't been afraid to 'out' gay characters for a long time now.  Rictor & Shatterstar are more something to poke fun at because of the rampant yaoi fan-girls.  The same girls who are convinced that Sora loves Riku and Cloud is Sephiroth's love slave.  It's like the rumours about Iceman being gay... just because people think it, doesn't mean it's real.  It's funny when Madrox catches Rictor off guard.  Not because Rictor was subconsciously confessing anything, but because he never realised how his friendship with 'Star looked to anyone else.

They kissed in the last issue of X-Factor, so the rumors were true...and Sora is in love with Riku too

I hope not gay characters are a cop out for not having interesting enough origins and backstories for them. It seems that the writers couldn't find anything interesting to do with Shatterstar or Rictor so they just decided "we'll hint that they're gay together and people will read it for that alone." I don't mind gay characters as long as it isn't an excuse to try to bring some excitement to their story. Do me a favor, clear up Shatterstar's origin, find something interesting about Rictor and put it to paper. The two of them being gay doesn't excuse the lack of enthusiasm in the writing of these characters.

Fair f*cking point.  It's time for mainstream comic companies to realize that being gay is not the sum total of who you are, and is not an adequate substitute for having a personality.  I'm tired of seeing C-listers that never get any other kind of development get outed for shock value.

Oh, and on a complete side-note, could someone please tell Marvel's writers to stop spelling out accents?  If I have to wade through another page of Rahne spouting "ye" instead of "you", I'm going to gouge my eyes out with a rusty carrot peeler.  Yes, we get it, she's Scottish.  That does not mean she has to talk like a wizened guide on an Edinburgh ghost tour trying to ham it up for a pack of American tourists.  If you want to communicate the fact that she's Scottish, use some Scottish slang, sentence structures and colloquialisms.  The same goes for southern characters, Irish characters, French characters...just cut it out!  It's incredibly disruptive to the flow of reading when the writer is constantly hitting you over the head with how big a character's accent is.  Believe it or not, where we come from does not define every aspect of who we are!

I haven't read X-Factor in years, but honestly, I made this prediction to a friend of mine back when they were a part of X-Force.  I honestly haven't cared enough for either character to find out what their status is.

Rictor is gay. He was uncertain about his sexuality but now he's sure and I think he's still with Shatterstar.

@gothamcity29: He is, but Shatterstar wants an open relationship since exploring his sexuality is a new sensation. Rictor's more of a bisexual, but he wants a monogamous partner.

@Thunderscream: Shatterstar said he wanted Rictor to help guide him, as he doesn't really understand the concept of monogamy (the randy little devil).
