Lesbian, Gay, and Bi Super-Heroes
12 years ago
- it's been a while since I saw that page. It's been updated since then to include some of the WildStorm/Image characters, but other than that it's still very pre-y2k html (he's using tables!). Ahem. Not that there's anything
Where the hell is Hawk and Dove?
That's way way way cool. Although what I really want to see is an L/G/B/T Archie Comics character. Have there ever been any?
Someone oughta mention to this guy that you can't go to jail for putting porn on the web, let alone reviews of porn.
Come on, you know Jughead was closeted. Great style, never went on dates with the chicks. BTW, this is completely irrelevent, but I still harbor a crush on Veronica. I love bitchy hot brunettes.
BANKY: You’re insane. Archie is not fucking Mister Weatherbee! HOOPER: Deny, deny, deny
Jughead closeted? hehe..maybe so, but first a nerd.
What?! You mean being gay isn't a superpower in and of itself?
I don't feel special anymore...
Dr. Wertham will see you now...
(I blame Sam Clay.)
This isn't worth a front page post and I humbly bow to all the banana munchers for the off topic. Yet, but yet,
is a humble superhero doing the ordinary shit that makes the true superior type hero.
I have an inclination to write a paper entitled "Jesus as a Totally Gay Superhero: A Post-Hermeneutical Meta-Analysis".
Even better with the captions.
He also missed Catwoman's sidekick (I forget her name, but she's a former drug addict and prostitute) in the current incarnation of the book. She and her girlfriend are very cute. There was also a lesbian sub-plot in one of the story arcs (1st or 2nd?) of Alias (which has nothing to do with the tv show). ...Ok, I'll stop being a dork now. At least publicly :)
It's weird that after years of DC being the staid and traditional company, they're beating Marvel in the sexual diversity category. It's also weird that Mike Allred, who's a devout Mormon, is behind putting some of the best gay characters into the Marvel universe. That said, in looking at the credits, DC seems to have gotten a lot of the better writers in comicdom in the last 10 to 15 years, where I think Marvel emphasized the artists more. And c'mon, they're missing nearly all of Leifield's characters. Everything he does is teh gay.
I just read where Catwoman is going to win a GLAAD media award. Huh.
