"You don't have to like me. But you will respect me."
I voted for Batwoman before noticing that Renee Montoya was an option. Oh well, but I guess she's not a superhero ATM so I can live with that.
While never explicitly stated as such in the comics I really would've loved to see Triumph come out as gay in story like Christopher Priest apparently intended to reveal.
I thought it helped make some of his interactions make a bit more sense. And as Priest mewntioned it would fit in with his narrative of feeling out of place and out of time.
Interestingly I have a hunch Priest who also wrote Ray at the time in the 90's might've intended to have Ray come out as gay (or bi) and have them be a couple given some events that happened in Ray's book, that I'm guessing DC nixed in the end which would've led to it.
Question for y'all: If a writer or artist writes or draws a character as lgbt, but they're never outed or made explicit on the page, does it count for you?
I'm going to say that, at least for those issues/that run, it does count for me, but the fan-side of me also feels that it "counts" completely, even though I know that's not logical.
That's the thing, though: I think, any version you have of John, he's a winky guy. It's easy for me that, at the very least, he hits on a lot of people, whether it's more serious than that or not.
Richard Stone from Static
or Richie Foley, as he was known on Static Shock
Midnighter all the way! I love the way Orlando is writing him and the way he handles his sexuality. The Prometheus story was awesome and twisted at the same time.
I'd recognize that a$$ anywhere! Midnighter talking to Dick Grayson about his best feature
Midnighter,Kate,Constantine,Renee,Scandal are my favourites but if I had to choose it'd be Midnighter. Catman,Catwoman and Ivy are "failed" gay/bi characters and actually lumping them with the others is an insult to actual LGBT characters. For the latter characters the writers tried to live some weird fantasy or fetish that they obviously were not fully comfortable with and committed to. Eg Harley/Ivy which is vague and only exists in Dini's head or Catwoman/Eiko which Valentine showed for one page and that was all there was to it,or Catman who is bi in Gail Simone's head.
Pied Piper is one of my fav C level characters ever!
Current Pull: Lazarus, Invincible, Seven to Eternity, Aquaman, Batman, Detective Comics, Flash, Green Arrow, Green Lanterns, Nightwing, Titans, Trinity, Daredevil, Elektra, Uncanny Inhumans, Black Panther, Archie, Ninjak.
in bed together. I'm not sure what more is needed for them to be successful bi characters.
