DC’s new gay character will be ‘major,’ ‘iconic’ — and apparently male | Robot 6 @ Comic Book Resources – Covering Comic Book News and Entertainment
Is Batman gay? Major DC Comics character to come out of the closet | Mail Online
I've thought they should changed what the initials DC stood for since they rebooted their entire line. And, well... I think this strengthens my reasoning.
Detective Comics is now Desperate Comics - and really has been for awhile. DC is so hungry for headlines and sales that they'd do just about anything - the new 52, stupid costume changes and now taking an existing character and making them gay.
That, in and of itself I really don't have an issue with (well, I will bicker at changing an iconic character with established lore just for change's sake). But, I really don't think they're doing this for social reasons - this is a headline and money grab - this is DC using a so-called cause for their own purposes.
