Confirmed: Superman might be gay

posted at 8:37 pm on May 21, 2012 by Allahpundit

Makes sense. He’s got the build, the fashion sense, and just maybe the gaydar-pinging facial structure. And yet — no one’s sure yet that he’s the one who’s coming out. All we know is that it’s a male, that it’ll happen next month, and that he’s “one of the major iconic DC characters.”

Is there something you’d like to tell us, Batman?

Actually, no need: We already know.

So which one is it? The folks at DC Comics aren’t saying, but they do say it’s the latest effort to make sure their comics keep up with the times.

Last September, DC Comics relaunched its entire line of comic books to feature an updated look and a new lineup of LGBT superheroes: including Voodoo, an African American bisexual woman and Batwoman, an open lesbian…

“DC and (archrival) Marvel are recognizing that there is an LGBT audience that has been reading their comics for years,” said Matt Kane, associate director of entertainment and media for GLAAD. “When creating these fictional worlds it’s important to show the full diversity.”

Aside from making good business sense, Kane said younger readers are perfectly comfortable with gay characters and expect to see their peers represented.

As a wise man once said, “culture is upstream from politics.” Another clue from Bleeding Cool, which broke this story:

As Senior VP Sales Bob Wayne explained, just like the President of the United States, the co-publisher’s policy on this “has evolved.”

And despite his best efforts to stem Dan’s wandering mouth, we also got the very strong impression that the death of Superman of Earth Two many not have been as final as portrayed…

So Superman’s going to return from a near-death experience having suddenly turned gay? Wouldn’t be the first time, my friends. Exit question: Did Obama’s “evolution” give Supes the courage to finally admit the truth? It’s canny marketing by D.C. to try to capitalize on The One’s big announcement by plugging one of their major characters directly into the news cycle. And, assuming they’re Obama fans, it gives their guy a tiny bit of extra political cover. Wouldn’t be the first time that that’s happened with a constituency on this issue either.

Based on convention photos in the news, I just assumed they were all gay. So it’s just one, huh?

More Marxist indoctrination. Phuck DC Comics, they have sucked donkey balls for the last 35 years anyway.

He was singing show tunes…flying upside down and then doing loopy loops….

Confirmed: Superman might be gay

How exactly does the word “confirmed” get used with the word “might” to formulate a headline?

I always thought confirmation was supposed to remove the uncertainty implied by the word “might.” Of course, all we see here is a confirmation of uncertainty. So it’s certainly uncertain… certainly.

Go figure.

Stoic Patriot on May 21, 2012 at 8:47 PM

listens2glenn on May 21, 2012 at 8:48 PM

Didn’t they cover this on “Queer As Folk?”

On that show, it was a new character and the promised comic book never was published. On this one, we will see circulation drop to almost nothing. What fools.

Yes, it’s a goof. We’re talking here about whether a comic book character might be gay. Lighten up. Geez.

AP, are you coming out of the closet? Is that what all these posts lately have been about? It’s okay, we’ll accept you even if we don’t approve of your behavior.

If not, why does it seem like you have a different post every day that’s about the homosexual lifestyle.

njrob on May 21, 2012 at 8:50 PM

Really? After years and years of these comic icon’s being around, they are going to say one of these icons is gay?

Seems like they are looking for a new avenue to grab some money from.

And AP, it is an issue greater than it being a comic book if they’re trying to destroy traditional iconic characters to further a progressive lifestyle.

njrob on May 21, 2012 at 8:51 PM

Who is going to break it to Lois Lane?

Dr Evil on May 21, 2012 at 8:52 PM

Come on, it has to be Batman. Superman had the hots too long for Lana Lang and Lois Lane. Batman hasn’t had the hots for anyone, always spurning Catwoman, yet always has a Robin. Their relationship was always platonic, but Batman needs a Robin. It could explain the real reason Dick Grayson departed to become Nightwing. Batman came out and on to him, but Dick Grayson is straight.

However, I wouldn’t be surprised if it turned out to be Flash, Wally West or Barry Allen.

Anyway, it seems pushing the progressive homosexual agenda will result in vanishing sales, just like it’s resulting in vanishing votes for 0bama.

Rebar on May 21, 2012 at 8:54 PM

Aside from making good business sense, Kane said younger readers are perfectly comfortable with gay characters and expect to see their peers represented.

Uh, really?

Every other day there’s a special or feature on how gay children are bullied by their peers. Anyone remember the “it gets better” campaign”? And the PSAs, still running, about how kids shouldn’t use “gay” as a derogatory term?

amerpundit on May 21, 2012 at 8:54 PM

They could have a conservative character with traditional values, who reads his Bible, teaches Sunday school, has only had sex with his wife who he loves, doesn’t cuss, is kind to everyone …

Relax everyone. I’m joking! It’s just too offensive to even contemplate. Just a lame attempt at humor. Bring on the LBGT characters!

Paul-Cincy on May 21, 2012 at 8:54 PM

No, no, no, NO! This is the worst news ever. Supes? The lamest, douchiest, most annoying comic book/movie/cartoon hero of them all? Worst outfits. Worst storylines (except when he’s evil) worst disguise (glasses, for realz?) worst WV TV series. Worst, EVERYTHING. He is not part of the tribe. We reject him. Give us Batman damn it.

Oh come on! I just finished a post in The Green Room on this very story. :-( I encourage everybody to take a look at it if and when it is approved. I have a slightly different take on this than AP. Needless to say, I’m not as enthusiastic as he is concerning this, although if Black Canary admits her feelings to Wonder Woman, I might change my mind (not really, see my post).

NotCoach on May 21, 2012 at 8:55 PM

Why are they worrying about the sexual proclivities of a character in literature aimed to a young demographic?

The Superman series was doing quite well even though DC never pried deeply into the presumed sex life he had with Lois Lane.

Besides, there are gay comic book characters already, like Northstar.

I never understood the need to break diversity barriers in areas of fiction. For instance, I remember when Disney released “The Princess and The Frog”. The black community was swelling up with pride about the fact that children of African descent will no longer be prevented from becoming royalty.

After Marvel outed that guy from Alpha Flight, I started noticing the liberal slant in comics, eventually gave up on most of them. Just couldn’t take it anymore. Although I was pleasantly surprised to hear John Romota Jr call Hanity one time.

AP beat me by a matter of minutes on this.

Mike Rathbone on May 21, 2012 at 8:57 PM

Won’t be Superman. Not with a movie coming out in December.

Foxnews were being the atypical snarky arseholes with that column.

Shazam would be the most logical, except he’s also a ten-year old boy. So….you’d have that whole gender-identity issue to play with also.

One of the Flash or Green Lanterns makes the most sense.

Or, it could be a “major character” who’s only major to fanboys.

Allah – You forgot to mention Marvel’s ghey marriage next month.

If it’s a major major DC character coming out, I’d guess either Batman or Wonder Woman (the most obvious choices imo), otherwise I’ll go with Jimmy Olsen – I don’t believe there’s any way it could be Superman.

There have been prominent gay characters in graphic novels outside of the DC/Marvel universe for years. Has no one here read The Authority? Or other Darkhorse titles? DC and Marvel is, frankly, behind the curve when it comes to innovation in comics. I mean, for goodness sake, ARCHIE beat them out on the gay marriage deal. But whatevs, let them think they are special.

And if you’re looking for grown folks comics to read I suggests you pick up on some of the following series:

Y, The last man on earth
Powers (great detective book that sends up DC-Marvel)
The Authority
Walking Dead

Explain this to me. We’ve had an uncountable number of Muslim/Arabic villlains in action movies for years. If there’s one positive image of a Muslim person it is “PC?” Why is it impossible for some people to accept *any* positive image of Islam or the notion that *any* Muslim people may be nice or even heroic? And why is that there’s a lot of symmetry between the people who are “sickened” by a positive image of a Muslim and those who are sickened by the possibility that fictional character superman might be gay. (hint, its not gonna be Superman).

libfreeordie on May 21, 2012 at 9:15 PM

Seems the suits running DC these days have forgotten what these characters represented that made them ‘icons’ in the first place….. and made them SELL.

If they weren’t completely bereft of any creative talent, having selectively hired people for their relationships to those already employed, or their ideology rather than their creativity, DC could have simply created NEW ‘iconic’ characters with the personal attributes they wish to assign to them. Being completely incapable of recognizing what constitute a character or story line with the potential to become popular, much less iconic, the suits are left with ordering changes to existing successful characters.They couldn’t find a faster recipe for failure.

libfreeordie on May 21, 2012 at 9:19 PM

Just another reason why manga is eating American comics lunch. If there’s a market for something you create something to fill that market, it’s called diversification. Reinventing your major characters as the polar opposite of what they have been means they have been reduced in value to the point it makes no difference if it fails. In other words, too little, too late.

I am sure they will keep the characters VERY conventional for the movies though which is the only place they are worth anything.

Finally, the dam breaks. Think of the costumes, the buffness, the prancing around. They are ALL gay. People who watch or read them are all gay too and most don’t realize it. Karzai is one of the few real people who wears a cape and of course, he is goat gay. You folks that follow this fantasy menswear stuff may as well all come out too.

What do expect? Most of them are prancing around in tights to begin with.
