Gay DC Character to be Revealed

Gay DC character: an established DC superhero will come "out" in the coming days. So who will it be? Superman? Batman? Robin? Aquaman?

The news about the coming out of one established DC character is now boggling geeks and comic fans all over the world.

According to DC Comics co-publisher Dan DiDio, a previously announced (and previously straight) superhero will be coming out of the closet in an unspecified upcoming edition.

“One of the things we’re very focused on doing for these types of stories is rather than [change an existing] character, we want to make sure that this is the basis of who that character is right from the start,” he said.

This isn’t the first time that a major comic book publisher has tackled the subject of homosexuality. Rictor and Shatterstar of Marvel’s “X-Factor” series are a gay couple. Also from Marvel, Hulkling and Wiccan from the Young Avengers universe are gay. But these characters are gay from the beginning.

However, DC’s gay character is previously straight. He or she is also an established character so “coming out of the closet” will definitely send shockwaves across the universe.

    dahil hindi magkakapareho ang mga opinions natin, it will surely ends up a chaos lalo na kungmagkakaiba ang mga background beliefs natin…we may say na the church may not allow gay marriage pero the government can make laws for this reason…magkakagulo diba? some will work on it not because of equality but because of quantity of votes that they can acquire working on this topics…sabi nga ni shalani..putukan naaaahhh

    social relevant? it will destroy the comic fanatics heart if they will discover batman or superman is gay!…. u dont know what u r talking… DC shoul consider the so called “SOCIAL RELEVANCE ” to not affect the ” SOCIETY of COMIC FANATICS” which comprises mostly of straight MEN…. DC is trying to spread evil again!… WE RESPECT GAYS! (not here in forum) but the Sexual ACT? NO FUCKING WAY! , lalo na yung mga baboy na bakla!…

    well, you’re such a great person. And I won’t catch aids which you and most other flaming heterosexuals claim. It’s always the gays, it’s always the flaming queers who have AIDS. You do realize though that AIDS is the transition of body fluid to one person to another? And I’m not gonna stand for people as arrogant as you are and think you can tell me where I stand in society. And yes, I tried to committed suicide before, and I was almost successful because people like you are so arrogant and so filled of much hatred because of what? Because I love someone no matter what’s in their pants? I’m sorry you feel that way, but I am strong enough to realize I don’t have a disease, it’s not a disorder and people like you, are clearly not educated well enough, and realize that yes, you won’t get to me and make me take my life in my own hands. So indeed, Keep on with the comments. (: shows you who’s better in the end

    Well just to add, I am a Roman Catholic and social worker. The bible says love all people and treat them as your brother and sister. But it also says specifically that MARRIAGE is a sacred bond between a man and a woman. I think churches have the right to say if people can or can’t be legally married for this purpose. If gay people wanna be recognized then the government should create some law for gay UNIONS to occur.

    As far as gay comic heroes, how about creating new heroes who are gay instead of taking what people have known since the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, & 2000’s and changing their sexual orientation.

  6. How nice, DC is becoming social relevant. I’m hoping it’s Robin.

    well to jldj800, You think that this is disgusting? You think that all homosexuals, and hey let’s further this transexuals and transgenders can’t be in a comic because you and others think we’re gross? Well let me tell you something. I am 15 years old and I am a Transgender female to male Sophomore. I have never seen in my entire life something about even such as a newspaper article or even a comic about a gay couple or gay marriage. So you are saying because of their “way of life”,  we’re gross. It’s gross that we love one another such as you love someone else. No, I’m gonna cause a war, but seriously, the world is changing. You say that comics will be pronographic? well I am pretty sure that all the other heterosexual movies I have watched and seen have been pornographic and televised of sexual content but it’s when it’s two men or two women having sex it’s pornographic. That so right, correct? Heterosexual couples can be publicized of having sex on ABC family, but when you bring in Soap Operas Like ‘All My Children” it’s perverted. Yes you have a right to an opinion, but when you say homosexuality is sick, and that it can’t be shown because it will be sinful, it will be disgusting that homosexuals commit all crimes of rapes? Where’s your proof? Where is all your proof that all rapes committed are by homosexuals? So you know what, Super Fag? All the means let’s have one, because you know maybe if you have children, they’re going to meet someone at least once who is homosexual. Maybe even meet a transgender male/female or a transexual. So let me tell you something, I grew up in the Christian Church, I believe love is love, it doesn’t have a gender, race, or sexuality it just is. For the Bible was written by man, and interpreted by man, so mine interpretations of life and many others are gonna be different by yours. I really hope they promote this evil you speak of, because if it’s love, then all by all means, I am for it. I have many rights as you do, but as a comic, something as little as that, you are going to be critical of the LGBTQQ community. Which is something I am not going to stand for. I really hope you have a different mind set, but if not, then I am sorry. But if you get to publicize your criticism, then by all means I have the rights as you as a citizen, a person in America to voice my opinion as well.  

  9. You’re an idiot.  Romans 1:22

  10. Disgusting. Why don’t they draw him/her eating ass, licking & sucking another woman/man’s privates stinking up the joint flaming, hating men (dyke)women (fag).  Show the gay beating up on women verbally & otherwise.  He/she will be wearing men/womens underwear and will be a plague raping little boys/girls with his super powers.  It’s Super Fag?Dyke coming to a public toilet near you.  The comics will become pornographic.  sick, sick and sinful.  Those who promote this evil are liars wicked who wlll burn in hell on the other side of eternity.
