    Making Batman gay would be a problem. (Catwoman, Talia al Ghul... these aren't just flings, these are relationships that have had profound influence on his life.) Superman? His civilian identity is as whitebread as possible to contrast with his amazing powers and the fact that he's the illegalest and alienest of the illegal aliens. Making him into any kind of minority misses the point. Making Hal Jordan gay would send me into a frothing homicidal rage.

    Using J'onn would be a copout, since he's an alien-- and an alien alien, unlike Superman-- but could work. Cyborg is a good bet, and might actually be intriguing when combined with his body issues. It would work with Wonder Woman, but that would be pandering to an entirely different demographic.

    I'd rather see them make new gay characters, and then write those characters into major figures in the DC Universe.
    How dare you use actual reasoning, logic, and rational arguments revolving around the actual comic books to make a point on this rather than just joining with everyone else in making it the steroetypical "gay acceptance vs not gay acceptance" / "you're bigots / you're forcing your views on people" type of thread but with comic references tossed in.

    Not reading or keeping up with much DC stuff, what about Flash?

    Uh, comic books have always been used as a political tool. Every hear of Captain America?

Anyone who says comic characters haven't always been used for providing social commentary has never read comics.

    I mean come on...

    Considering Batman's ingenuity with gadgets, tell me you don't want to see what kind of bat-dildo he can come up with.

    Most, if not all of the sexual tension was generated from the women. And if you'll notice, many gay men during those times had wives and children.

    A lesbian Wonder Woman would not work. Wasn't she involved with more than a few men since her inception?

    Oh, a lesbian Wonder Woman would definitely work. Who gives a **** abut the storyline when there's sexy lesbian scenes to consider?

    Hey, great minds think alike.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Too late..I already went there. But that DOES bring up a point. When they introduce gay characters are they going to promote the stereotypical hot sexxxy lipstick lesbian that guys still fantasize about or are they going to present a raspy tattoo'd chunky somewhat less appealing butch les? And if it is a guy will they make them the ultimate in macho and manly or are they going to offer a Perez Hilton type homosexual superhero?
