    Default DC LGBT Appreciation

    I checked and couldn't find this discussion existing in this forum. The Marvel forum has a very well thought out version in it.

    I'm intending this to be a place to discuss events surrounding DC's LGBT character specifically. What do you like or not like?

    Anyways, right now DC has a lot of great books out right now starring their LGBT characters. Off the top of my head there's Harley Quinn, Catwoman, Secret Six, Midnighter, DC Bombshells, and Constantine. I'm sure I'm forgetting some, but it's pretty amazing how many are being put out in such a short period of time.

    Constantine is gay?

    .....



    Anyway, my all-time favorite LGBT character has always been Midnighter before everyone jumped on the bandwagon. Bunker, Poison Ivy, Catman & Batwoman are other favorites.

    You can find people who think Nathan Lane is straight and J'onn is black.

    Which, really, should be a sitcom: Nathan, John, and J'onn share an flat and try to convince the landlord that they're all straight but, no, J'onn isn't black, he's a Martian. Cue laugh track.

    DC inherited/bought a lot of queer characters via WildStorm, even beyond real-world sexualities or sexual identities, but most of that hasn't got any play in years and years.

    My boy Midnighter FTW!
    I'm a fighter. I fight for normal people. But I'll never be one. I'm not a hero. Some people can't handle that.

    I'm obsessed with midnighter personally. He's been my fave for years. I would love to cosplay as him but I have no idea where I can get a mask like his (except an s and m shop but I would like to be able to keep my mouth free)

    I liked Obsidian but he doesn't exist anymore but he's my favorite pre-boot.
    Post reboot is Batwoman. I like the character style with the limited palette, her story is interesting too. I like that she's bold.

    It only lasted a few episodes on NBC, I didn't have Bravo then on our cable.

    I forgot about Starman. It's too bad he didn't stick around post-Flashpoint.

    I picked Piper because (a) I thought he had the best coming-out scene in mainstream comics, and (b) in the years following his coming out, he was my favorite. He had a sense of humor that I found enjoyable and familiar. This was post-CoIE (Wally West Flash), pre-Flashpoint days.

    But then they went all wildly angsty on him, got grim, and, in my opinion, pretty much ruined him. And in The New 52, he has been a minor and uninteresting tertiary character whose backstory (and years as a criminal) we know nothing about - practically a cipher.

    I remember watching it on Bravo on reruns at one point. I can't remember if it was honestly good or if I just really really had a crush on Nathan Lane.

    I voted for Piper as well for similar reasons. His coming out is one of the most casual outings in comics. I also enjoyed Hartley teaming up with Wally during his Flash days.

    I voted for Constantine; to spread the love (Midnighter is amazing too).

We are Fredrick the Great. We are Rustin. We are Addams. We are Marsha! Marsha Marsha Marsha! We so generous, we DeGeneres. We are Ziggy Stardust hooked to the silver screen.
