DC Comics plans to reintroduce a character as gay, comic blog BleedingCool.com reports.

It’s gotta be Batman.
Gee, how original, FUDC
So, basically DC Comics is fixing to write the death knell for the sales of one of their Superheroes.
Mark my words, it doesn’t matter which hero it is, sales numbers will crater.
Hey, DC! How do you kill off a successful superhero franchise?
Nah, Superman - he has always had the hots for Jimmy Olsen.
Major barf. I used to have a BODACIOUS barf graphic. I wonder if it's still around?
THE LOVE THAT WON'T FREAKIN SHUT UP!!!!!
It’s just an over-priced comic book...who cares?
Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman....let it be Wonder Woman....
Really I could care less. Comics died in the 70’s if not before.
Well, these dudes have always been gayish!
Actually, the rumor that’s going around is that it will be the Earth-2 Green Lantern, who was just re-introduced this month.
A homosexual “superhero”. The Fabulous Boa! This should be hilarious. I guess they’ll have to leave off the “SWISH!” when he/she takes off running.
Just one super hero?
Every one of them has that whole spandex tights thing going on, in all kinds of bright colors. Then you’ve got the matching cape, matching mask, and slip-on stain high top shoes.
I’m thinking the whole super hero culture is keeping a secret.
What is it with these people? (Rhetorical Question...)
Comic books were one of my favorite reading pleasures as a young child and man. I read them for the adventure or the eeriness of somewhere far away and different from where I lived and went to school. I didn’t care about a heros or villains sexual orientation nor would it have ever occurred to me to ask.
Now-a-days... These comics are quickly heading for the XXX rated adult store not the local comic book store.
I dunno. He's done some pretty goofy things to impress and get to Lois. And Lana too.
