    Hana Barbera did it first. Snagglepuss was one gay cat.

    Also, characters are always being reinvented. Again, it's very hard to create a popular new character. So, reinvent an old one. Look at Spiderman...there was Spider man 2099, Spider Man Noir, then they cloned him, to make him anew, etc etc etc.

    Look at the X-Men. How many X comics are out there now, I don't even know? I stopped reading in the mid to late 90s...I pick up a graphic novel and read it in the bookstore from time to time...and that alone tells me there are WAY too many reinvented characters. Remember the old Avengers? Pretty much every Marvel super hero was a member...now we are back to just Thor, Hulk, Iron Man, Wasp, Pym, and Captain America...but at the same time, there is a DIFFERENT captain america waging war in some Civil War thing...debating the merits of vigilantism.

    They are going to do WHATEVER they feel is going to make a character lucrative. Period.

    And remember, it's NOT Batman that would be gay...only Bruce Wayne.

    He was an illegal alien, anyway. He was stealing superhero work from real Americans like the Flash and Batman.

    By the way, did it not occur to you that the whole "Truth, Justice, and the American Way" motto was, itself, a politically motivated thing?

    Isn't that precisely what superheros are supposed to do? Remodel society and make people feel better?

    Personally, I don't see a problem in learning more about the superheroes, some of which has not been written before. Introducing sexuality does not alter the basic purposes/learning opportunities involved. They are no less heroic on account of their sexual orientation. Their deeds are no less great.

    However, if one wants alternatives, they are readily available. One example would be Aesop's Fables. However, some degree of literacy is required to explain the many Fables and the deeper lessons involved e.g., some of the broader lessons involved with "The Lion and the Mouse" (intrinsic worth of people, differences don't automatically mean lesser/greater ability to make a contribution, don't underestimate a person's possible contribution, etc.). And, like many early or classic works of literature, one can find them online.

    That's because Spidey has a new latex suit.
