He has won numerous awards, including the Hugo , Nebula , and Bram Stoker awards, as well as the Newbery and Carnegie medals.

Northstar is a member of a fictional subspecies of humanity known as mutants , who are born with superhuman abilities. The character possesses the ability to travel at superhuman speeds, fly, and project photonic energy blasts. His twin sister, Aurora , possesses similar abilities. Although the character was initially depicted as a member of Alpha Flight, he has appeared regularly as a member of the X-Men since joining the team of mutants in Uncanny X-Men December The character is one of the first openly gay superheroes in American comic books, and the first openly gay character to come out in a book published by Marvel Comics. He married his husband, Kyle Jinadu, in Astonishing X-Men 51 June , which was the first depiction of a same-sex wedding in mainstream comics. In , Alpha Flight went on to star in its own comic, with Northstar as a charter member. In addition to the Alpha Flight comic and associated annuals, Northstar and other members of the team made numerous guest appearances in other titles, particularly Uncanny X-Men and Wolverine. Creator John Byrne was reluctant to produce an initial run of the Alpha Flight comic series for lack of developed and compelling characters, which had no back-stories and were created as nothing more than a team to face the X-Men.
Nick Shadow in The Rake's Progress. Of especial interest to me was young bass Kyle Ketelsen's role debut as Nick Shadow. He definitely did not disappoint. Ketelsen always offers a consistent, rich, and suave tonal delivery and he is possessed of one of the most secure techniques of any voice heard before the public today. He bought his usual intelligence and superb musicianship to bear in what has to be considered a major role assumption in his growing repertoire and reputation. As wonderful as is his vocalizing, Kyle also scores big - make that waaaaaay big - as an actor. In fact, I would be hard pressed to think of any male singer active that is his equal for stage presence, character delineation, vocal color, uninhibited movement, and dramatic understanding. The card scene could have served as Masters Class in theatrical nuance.
