    Make Wolverine gay.
    One of the X Men is already getting married to another guy, though I admit Wolverine is probably the gayest(real life gay, not hollywood gay) of all the X Men.

    To any comic geek (such as I've been for most of my youth), Batman was the only character in the Justice League that didn't have a girlfriend or was trying to hookup with some superchick. He only wanted to have his Robin close to him... wearing some absurd tights with little winged booties on his feet. So no, I'm far from shocked.

    Now if it were someone like Green Lantern, that would be strange and out of character.
    Any comic book geek knows that there five different characters as Robin and two of them were girls an there is a couple of different batgirls as well that were his sidekick.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    His first has always been his favorite. His boy Dick... Grayson.

    There are two characters that I would be willing to bet are not going to come out as gay in DC, Superman and Batman.

    Superman because of the whole Lois Lane thing and other slightly less important reasons that someone else addressed.

    Batman because it would look bad for both Batman and homosexuality. It wouldn't make sense to cause those issues to come up and it would hurt Batman's fanbase.

    Now, I don't know a lot of the other DC characters, but I suppose most of the other main characters could be gay. A few of the top suspects on my list would be the Flash, Aquaman, and (I hate to admit this) Nightwing.

    I hope it won't be Nightwing basically for the same reason I don't think it will be Batman. It could still look bad and still hurt Batman. Plus, Nightwing is absolutely my favorite DC character.

    This is the "gay agenda" at work.

    I like the OP and how it shows he has no idea what happens in most comicbooks now. Most comicbooks are age graded or have recommendations now. This isn't really new. Marvel is responding by having 2 mutants marry in Astonishing X-Men. It may also astonish you to know that 15 years ago in Amazing Spiderman #417 Mary Jane and Peter Parker had a daughter that "died" at birth and a couple of years later their marriage was reversed by Spider-Man making a deal with the devil to bring his Aunt May back after a hit out for Peter Parker from Kingpin, who was outed as SPider-Man by Tony Stark ended up killing her instead.

    Where is the "outrage" from Conservative diatribe on those?

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Don't know about that. The way they did the reboot, Flash is actually the Flash of the previous universe, and Flashpoint started with him being heartbroken over Iris. He's not gay.

    They announced that it will be an iconic character that hasn't been seen since the reboot and that he was a formerly "straight character".

    It's also been said that it is not Batman.

    Well, other than the Big Five of the Justice League, I have no idea who's been seen or not. Outside of that group, I'd easily see Booster Gold or Guy Gardner going that way.
