Apparently, a 'prominent' DC super hero is going to come out of the closet.

Opinions? Should they do this, or introduce a new gay character? Or just not do it at all?

I don't quite understand the reasoning behind it. Yeah, there's never been a Gay Superhero. But there's never been a Transgendered one either.

Who. The fuck. Cares.

Taking bets on it being Aquaman.

I just hope it's not one who we've come to know as being a ultra badass like Batman. I'm strongly for gay rights but Batman being gay at this point would just feel weird.

I'm secretly hoping it's Wonder Woman.

Why do they have to be referred to as " Gay characters"? Can't they just be called.... Characters?


Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.

If it's Batman, they are going to see riots, If it's Wonder Women, it'll just be fan service.

I bet it'll be wonder women.

I usually wouldn't care, it just seems weird that Western superhero stories have been popular for so long and yet this hasn't been done yet (to a major character, that is)

That's my thought exactly.

And anyone who reads marvel knows this isn't new. Northstar of the X-Men has been openly homosexual since 2003.

DC is just 9 years late to the party.

And honestly, I'm putting my money on Batman or Aquaman. Though I really wish they'd just introduce a new character, since ... Just about every Superhero in the history of forever has had some form of heterosexual relationship already.

I totally agree with this. People have hinted for years that they thought Batman and Robin were gay. DC's main characters are Superman and Batman. They are not making Clark Kent gay. Bruce, its your turn to step out of the Bat closet.

Who gives a shit? It just shows how out of touch the comics industry is if they think this is a big thing that needs to be announced. Gay people exist, we know, it's not some big wake up call.

Is Rawhide Kid a Marvel character?

I remember reading that he's officially gay.

Yeah, that was back from a few years ago. They tried to make him relevant. They failed. I also think one of the guys from Alpha Flight (Northstar I think?) is gay. Again, an attempt to boost sales. Nobody cared.

Damn it, they don't need to do this. It probably has something to do with political correctness. I put my money on bats.

Thinking about it now, it makes perfect sense who the character will be... Martian MANhunter.

I can't pretend that I wasn't happy when I read this news on io9.

Yay for gay superheroes. And yeah it won't be Batman, but we all know he is still gay so that is fine.

The most retarded shit I ever heard of. Leave the DC legends alone.

I'm all for LGTB freedom/awareness and whatnot, but when it starts to effect childhood comic book fantasies, that's just when things go WAY too far. At least add a new character that is gay/lesbian/bi/whatever instead of potentially ruining 80+ years of iconic success.

I thought an argument could already be made that Batman was gay?

Completely fucking stupid. They're just trying kiss all the homos' asses. Same thing with rebooting Spiderman as a half-mexican/half-black kid.

$20 on Batman! He saved Twoface instead of that chick in the Dark Knight. There's a reason he goes around with Robin wearing tight leather outfits.

Batman is the obvious choice. His sexuality has been in question for years.
