    Relationships add depth and interesting story lines to the comic books. Sexual orientation is a part of relationships. There really is very little way to separate them. Without some relationships, many comic book story lines would get pretty boring and the same old, same old. What would Superman be without Lois Lane? What would Spiderman be without Mary Jane? What would the X-Men be without the myriad of relationships that happen within them?

    It's like you're dreaming of Gorgonzola when it's clearly Brie time, baby. Step into my office.

    One would say the same thing about homosexuals in general. If this is your attitude, then perhaps we can stop having "guys" and "gay guys", politicizing someone's entire life as if who they're sexually attracted to is relevant in every single instance always.

    Maybe Batman's gay, so what?

    Just think about how the storyline of the X-men, for example, has been utterly dependent on the mutants' battle against society's views about them, fighting for their civil rights, battling systemic oppression by those who fear them, and finding a safe harbor against the general way they are ostracized by others over characteristics which they cannot control.

    Now tell me that there's no reason to have a gay superhero.

    It is relevant in that the writers are trying to create more than just a big fight every issue. The personal lives of the superhero characters has always been a large portion of any comic book, often with more time spent on that than the fighting.

    Batman wasn't gay. Robin was and Batman was tolerant.

    So no one is going to bring up that superman was an analogy by his Jewish creators of being the messiah?

    A single middle aged dude surrounded by a dozen worshipping males wasn't gay enough for them?
