    Too bad. I've always had a lot more respect for DC than for Marvel. That is now over.

    Making Batman gay would be like making Superman gay. It would totally **** up the storyline and the universe.

    So now in an interest to make maybe 10% of the population feel 'welcome', we need to go and over exaggerate and make half of everything gay?

    I have no problem with gay's marrying. Its not my choice, I don't understand it. What I don't support is explicit parades, or **** like this. This type of crap would change my attitude real quick.

    I got a fantastic idea. Make a NEW gay super hero. FFS.

    P.S. Comics are for kids. If you are not a kid, and you read 'graphic novels', you need to talk to a psychiatrist.

    I suspect it is Bouncing Boy from the Legion of Super Heroes.

    From what I understand they already did that with their little "ReBoot" last year. Guess this is just more of a way to drive away the classic DC fans and try to steal some of the market from Marvel.... where nothing in the universe is any more stable than in the WWE.

    How so? What would be different in Batman's behavior and/or history that would cause problems in the DC Universe? AFAIK, Batman's never had a girlfriend he was actually screwing. He only played the part of a wealthy playboy which would be consistent with a lot of gay men during those times (50's and 60's).

    Oh that DEFINITELY explains it given all you know about Batman.

    I'm sure to a lot of gay men that were in hiding back then it was probably extremely funny.

    Is some one actually suggesting making half the characters gay?
