    Speaking of TimKon, the one good thing about the clearly editorially mandated abortion of Superboy's rehabilitation they hastily had Lobdell write not long ago was Tim's reaction to Kon leaving for the proverbial cornfields (for one of the most offensively ridiculous in-story reasons I've ever had the displeasure of experiencing, to boot). That him tearing up in anger and despair felt rather out of the blue given their limited interaction as friends in post-FP continuity made it even more (repressed) slashy.

    I would've liked to see more reaction from Bunker. He had been Superboy's best friend for most of his New52 lifespan.

    A~nd Bunker brings us back to the abysmal number of (superhero) queer youth at DC (proper, so no Wildstorm or Milestone, although they wouldn't raise the number much, anyway) I've been heavily complaining (and often thoroughly pissed) about at the very least since the end of Young Avengers Vol.1 (which makes me feel old; thanks for that, DC).

    A very small number of (non-superhero) supporting characters aside, there's been what? Hero Cruz, who's been in limbo since long before Flashpoint, and Miguel Barragan himself; that's about it. (I just realised both are Latino... Huh.) I'm fairly sure that Holly Robinson's stint as Catwoman and Todd Rice's coming-out happened well into their respective twenties, but even if we count them, the numbers are still terrible; I seriously can't think of anybody else.

    I loved Young Avengers, Ted & Billy were obviously my favorite part. It's too bad DC don't have anything similar.

    Kate Kane gets my vote. I never thought I would ever relate to a character so much like I do with her. She is easily one of the best and most real LGBT comic book characters imo.

    I also miss Renee and Maggie. Hope they show up again in Kate's world sometime soon. Still need to check out Midnighter.
    Emma Frost, Rogue, Felicia Hardy, Helena Bertinelli, Barbara Gordon, Monica Rambeau, Carol Danvers, Illyana Rasputin, Ororo Munroe, Harleen Quinzel, Dick Grayson, Kate Kane, Rachel Grey Summers, Gwen Stacy, Wanda Maximoff = PERFECTION!

    Great interview with Orlando...

    http://www.newsarama.com/28696-midni...e-deserve.html

    "I feel amazing about it! When the book began, people weren’t sure where Midnighter fits into the DCU. Now his place is indelible, unique, and unquestionable. People weren’t sure how much there was to him as a character, what separated him from Batman. Now anyone who has read the book would never confuse the two.
    And most of all, people were given a queer icon that they deserved, and they connected with him. All the Best of 2015 lists, a GLAAD Media Award nomination, and the personal messages people send me most of all, are the real accomplishment. This is a book I needed when I was younger, and for people to have it now, in the next generation, is my greatest accomplishment of all.
    That, and having an action scene where someone is killed with a T-Bone steak."
    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.

    He is?! Shoot, I thought he was still hanging out in Teen Titans! Heck, I was mad he wasn't in Justice League vs. Teen Titans!

    Yeah, DC definitely needs more queer characters in general and queer kids in particular.

    Come on, DC!

    The one I like the most in DC is Bunker. I like his personality, his powers, his friendship with Gar.

    I just wish his romantic relationship side was shown more.

    Talking about Maggie. Did anyone else find it weird that she was seemingly aged up in Snyder's Batman?

    And yet he hasn't been confirmed as appearing anywhere after Rebirth.

    Not only do they need more LGBT characters, they need to support them more.
    Give them more promotion.
    And not turn them into sexless entities like they did with Alan Scott.

    Not as part of a permanent cast yet, but the fact that he'll be showing up in Nightwing's new book makes me think that he'll be staying in Grayson's orbit.

    Hopefully with Apollo, but we'll see how that falls out.

    Doesn't his Nightwing appearance happen after Rebirth?

    They need to put their LGBT characters in other medias. Like they've done in their TV shows. Their movies and animations need it. It was nice of them to add Batwoman in Justice League vs Titans. What about the gay Alan Scott appearing in the Green Lantern Corps movie that'll happen? What about a third season of Young Justice where Bunker appears? What about making that Titans TV show that never comes out of the realm of rumor and put Midnighter in it?

    Midnighter #11 is highly recommended. I was actually excited to see Apollo too!

    I'm always excited to see those two together. They had so much potential that just got pissed away by one uninspired, conformist take after another. I'm hoping for better this time.

    I really like Midnighter being single. I would love to see Apollo on his own for that matter. It's what makes reuniting them exciting and solidifies their own personalities. It's a spectacular penultimate issue. I was actually late to work today because I read it on my ipad right when I got up. hehe.
