Really? Can we just leave little boys alone and let them play without having to ponder whether Batman is a pitcher or a catcher in the bedroom?DC Comics plans to reintroduce a character as gay in a future issue, it has been revealed.
Co-publisher Dan DiDio previously said that the company would not change the sexual orientation of an existing superhero and would bring in a new one altogether.
But at Kapow Comic Convention in London on Sunday, he revealed that an existing character - who was previously assumed to be straight - will become ‘one of our most prominent gay characters’, according to comic blog BleedingCool.com.
Senior VP Sales Bob Wayne said DiDio’s view ‘had evolved’, comparing the shift to Barack Obama’s recent endorsement of same-sex marriage.
DiDio did not specify which character would ‘come out’ or in which issue it would be featured.
But Courtney Simmons, DC Entertainment’s senior vice president of publicity, told ABC News that it would be soon.
'One of the major iconic DC characters will reveal that he is gay in a storyline in June,' Simmons told the network.
