    It's actually a book that was written by Perry Moore.

    It wouldn't be the first gay superhero, though.

    Where do they get that it's the first gay superhero? I've been reading comics for a long time now and there have been many. Batwoman is a lesbian. Northstar is gay. Wicken and Hulkling are a gay couple. Colossus in Marvel's Ultimate comic book line is gay. The list goes on and on and....

    Far from being the first... possibly Stan Lee's first, but not the first. I hope the character isn't as much of a caricature as Stripperella (who I love --but we don't need another like that.)

    Yeah I read the book back in November.. It was a good read.

    Perry's writng style can be a little choppy at times but you get use to it.

    The web article says it is for a TV Series, not a comic book.

    It may be the first TV Series about a Gay Super hero.

    1.) Stan Lee has made nothing good in decades.

    2.) There are dozens of gay super heroes dating back to the 80s.

    3.) That article was the most homophobic thing I've seen in a long time. Leave it to the Scottish.

    I assume you're talking about the photo they put with it? Yeah, that was pretty tasteless.

    The photo's just a robin knock-off. You all do realize this article may not even be true right?

    I just wish Stan Lee would do a sequel to Mosaic.

    No, it's true. This was announced months ago. It'll be on Showtime.

    Oh okay. Because none of the comic book websites that I go to have reported on this. I've only seen one thread started in a forum which was posted today. As far as it creating a buzz then it must be buzzing right past peoples heads because nobody knew about it.

    But if it is true then hopefully it will be better than the movie they made from the winner of 'Who Wants to be a Superhero".

    I'm honestly more excited about Bill Willingham's Fables being adapted to a series by ABC.

    I have a feeling Hero on Showtime will end up being Rage from Queer as Folk.

    I hope not. He was a little too over the top with all his dick rays and gay rays.

    Stan Lee is a very progressive writer. It's awesome that he has such a contemporary approach to his art.

    That might be because its from a novel not a comic. Here is the link for the Variety article, which I would call a pretty reliable source.
    I am a comic geek to, but most of the guys I know from the shop have never heard of this book. Or "Soon I will be Invincilbe", which got the more attention from non comic readers since it was a superhero novel not based on an existing comic. Most of them havn't heard of "From the Notebooks of Dr Brain" which also has a gay character and is a local author (for me). Geeks can kind of have tunnel vision.
