    1. I'm confused by the websites tag line.
    2. How is a previously straight character becoming gay different from changing from gay to straight.
    3. Wonder woman (though I feel she is too mainstream for this jump) or Green Arrow.

    Edit: 4. That writer is obnoxious.

    More than obnoxious, he's hateful & dangerous. I didn't know Canada had people as sick as our Christian fundies in the US.

    He says gays have no choice in their sexuality, but that it's still not normal, undermines society because it defies the God-given institution of marriage that holds everything together, etc, etc, all the same religious hate speech we face in the US. And in a way a more dangerous tactic than we often encounter, since it tries to neutralize the argument that gay is not a matter of choice, but is natural and so a human & civil right.

    Dangerous because he concedes our argument that being gay is not a choice, like being left-handed, but then still argues that it's wrong because God says so. Interesting that God deliberately creates humans who are wrong, and who must suffer the discrimination and inferior social status caused by HIS choice, not ours. Reminds me of the old song lyrics: "Born To Lose."

    How are you ever going to be a great comedian if your not going to practice your material?

    As for the DC comics characters, Batman & Robin are the obvious choices for being gay. In fact, there's even a loose cartoon parody of them, "The Ambiguously Gay Duo."



    But it's for that reason I hope the gay superhero is NOT Batman, because it fits some stereotypical images of older gays being predators of young men. A superhero who works solo might be the better candidate.

    DC already has gay super heroes. Batwoman. The red-headed Cassandra Kane as Batwoman. There have been other gay supporting characters but no other super heroes that I know of.

    Marvel has Northstar, Wiccan, and Graymalkin. Rictor and Shatterstar remain bisexual.

    That whole article cracked me up so much, my stomach still hurts from laughing. Unfortunately I can not completely disagree with the poor soul where he states that for a small percentage "they " make a lot of noise. The author is obviously a anti-gay hate mongering individual but hell... he made me laugh. If DC comics were to create a gay superhero I believe it should be his personality his inherent goodness that makes him famous as a hero or a and not just the fact that he likes guys. I'd like to know what sexuality his nemisis would be though coase that will slightly alter my idea about the idea....

    I tend to doubt it will be a "major" character. It's more likely to be like Aquaman's sidekick.

    Still, if they do make it a major character, Robin's the obvious choice. Especially if you watch the reruns of the old 60s show. He always seemed to pull away from Catwoman in a gay way. It would be even more interesting if they made Superman gay. With his Fortress of Solitude, inside out underwear, and penchant for being caught by Luthor, it would be kinky cool if he had another side to him.

    D C Comics is one of the worlds most famous comic lineup company

    & if they were too have a gay character after years of prohibiting then it is an awakening that gays can be mainstream too !

    I wish if Batman comes put of closet as a closet gay who has come out & there never was a girlfriend of Batman as far as i remember like Louis Lane of Superman
    so my vote is for Bat !

    The guy's an idiot and a short-sighted asshole. One of many and a dime a dozen.

    Basically, DC is reworking their whole universe, kinda starting over. I don't think the character will be switching sexuality as much as, in this new continuity, just being gay.

    Supposedly, the character is male and is a longstanding major character. He also hasn't been reintroduced yet so that eliminates the big name characters. I was hoping it's the current Robin as that makes sense but we'll have to wait and see next month.

    Though both DC and Marvel have had gay characters in the past, they haven't really been the focus or been handled all that well. Both companies have seen the huge success of Archie Comics (hard to believe) and are jumping on the gay bandwagon.

    Ummm, aren't Apollo and Midnighter still gay in Stormwatch? They flirt pretty heavily and were gay before DC.

    Aside from that, I hope it's a a semi-cool character that is hot.

    Aqua an would be cool, a blond gay surfer with superpowers. Unfortunately, they'd have to rename him Queen of the Sea.

    Aqua man is not a major DC character
    only Superman ,Batman ,Wonder women are !

    so its gonna be either from any of them !

    without these three characters DC comics is nothing but a flop!

    Marvel comics is the King & still will be the king !
