Can we run a sweep on who it will be?

I’ve always thought Superman was a bit suspect, myself. Besides, they’ve been trying to kill him off for years now. This might really do it.

This can not be considered anything less than a blatant and open Homosexual recruiting drive aimed at kids. Kids read super hero comics. Kids loose their innocence soon enough and have enough issues and pressures on them. They are very easy too manipulate. The last thing they need in these times is adults encouraging them to a destructive lifestyle.

We are on fast track toward Gomorrah. The same GOD our creator who judged Sodom and Gomorrah will also judge this nation unless these acts are stopped.

Do it and I will never watch a Super Hero movie ever again.

What Bruce Wayne or Superman does in their bedroom is none of my business and I don’t want a scintilla of details...

simple.

boycott ALL DC comics.

call them and explain you won’t allow your children to be exposed to such indoctrination and overt propaganda. tell them you’ll make sure to spread the word at the next PTA or church meeting.

done.

they’ll feel that.

the left boycotts, ridicules, and attacks anyone with conservative beliefs... it’s about time kharma smacks them in the face

Why does everyone assume it is a male character ? Wonder Woman is an Amazon from an island of all women suspiciously like the Greek legend of Lesbos, isn’t she ?

Superman. Looked gay in the ‘50’s, and Lois too obvious a cover.

Problem is....Marvel already beat ‘em to it. Hasn’t hurt their bottom line (NO PUN INTENDED) one bit. Okay...granted, Northstar isn’t one of their main characters, but he came out YEARS ago and he’s still around...and so are they.

Now...if the DC character that comes out is one of their “Big 4” (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern), THEN you may see more of an impact.

I’ll wait and see.

I don’t think it can be the Flash or Superman....because of the practical and limited side of condoms. It has to be Wonder Woman.

Wonder Woman wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest. If I were a betting man, that’s where my money would be.

There’s a bondage subtext in Wonder Woman; the creator, William Moulton Marston, admitted as such. Aside from being the inventor of the lie detector, he had an interest in bondage. Here’s a couple of quotes of his:

“The only hope for peace is to teach people who are full of pep and unbound force to enjoy being bound... Only when the control of self by others is more pleasant than the unbound assertion of self in human relationships can we hope for a stable, peaceful human society... Giving to others, being controlled by them, submitting to other people cannot possibly be enjoyable without a strong erotic element”.

In reference to Wonder Woman’s male readers, he said, “Give them an alluring woman stronger than themselves to submit to, and they’ll be proud to become her willing slaves!”

So, yeah........my money’s on Wonder Woman. Of course, I could be wrong; maybe she’s just a dominatrix.

From the article...

DC vice president Bob Wayne likened DC's change in tune to President Obama's shift on gay marriage, explaining that DC's policy “has evolved,” the report says.

It HAS to be 'Green Arrow', with a secret identity name
like 'Oliver Queen', the die is all but cast, the poor sap.

Yep, even has a great big ol' "G" as a belt buckle.

“I hope sales go down 90%.”

Does anyone actually read these things anyway? If not for these stories I would have never known comic books were still being printed...

“Kids read super hero comics.”

I honestly didn’t know that; I can’t believe they can compete with video games and Harry Potter. I never see comic books for sale anywhere, so I just assumed it was 50 year-olds with nothing better to do that were re-living their childhoods that were the target audience. I remember seeing some in a barbershop when I was kid (around 1980), and those books were old back then. I thought these had gone the way of Atari...

There’s a bondage subtext in Wonder Woman;

I think the subtext here is rapidly becoming text.

“They were a dime when I was a kid. Now they’re about 5 bucks. ridiculous”

I don’t remember them being popular with kids when I was in grammar school (late 1970s, early 1980s), so I always thought of them as something kids had enjoyed a few years earlier.

True

The whole thing is wrong on so many levels, sometimes ya just gotta show it with making it even more wrong to show the insanity of it all.

And you are right about the public service announcements, they were cheesy, but right.

Not even on “Lois and Clark” would Cub Reporter Jimmy Olsen be considered a superhero.
