X-Men was defined by its authors as a gay metaphor as well as the explicit racial MLK/Malcolm X metaphor of Xavier and Magneto.



You mean Claremont,right? You have previously stated that you disregard any non-Claremont X-men comics.

Just wondering if this is who you mean.

re: Is it possible that Batman is gay?


I've read a ton of Batman comics, and I've never come across anything that made me think, "Man, that is really gay. Batman must be gay." Saying that, I tend to stick to the more modern Batman comics (something like 1980s-present). Maybe there is some gay stuff in the old ones.

I think we'll see the it in cartoons and possibly movies


I believe this as well. No way DC comics would do this just for comics only.

quote:

Steve Trevor is on the rebound big time in comics. The new Justice League arc gave him a validity in the DC Universe he hasn't enjoyed in a long time. I actually liked him best in the Perez reboot as an "older brother" figure for Diana. But I do like his new role in the new 52.


I would prefer he be an older brother figure for Diana but yeah, he's ok in new 52.

quote:

I think also the Lois Lane mythos is too strong for her to remain out of the picture forever.


I agree. If SM/WW is going to last a long time, she'll be a very good side character, one of the best in comics.

quote:

I like the pairing, but see it ascending to a deeper friendship, stronger than love between two people who could only truly understand each other.


Isn't it true that friendship is pretty much the basis for a great loving relationship? Friends make great lovers. The mind cannot sustain infatuation for a long time so friendship enforces that if that makes sense. I think that they are already in a deep friendship and that will only make the relationship they have into the strongest love there is.

Dammit, I sound like some romance novel obsessed chick.

quote:

They do undeniably make a good team.
Agreed. They are pretty much on the same level of power. Only Superman would have a very good chance of stopping Wonder Woman if she ever went rogue.

Also, if word ever gets out about them dating in the comic world, it will be interesting to see how it's written how Earth accepts two people that are basically gods dating each other.

quote:

I think we might even get a glimpse of it at the end of the Man of Steel. Gina Carano has been dating Henry Cavill for about 6 months or so in the public eye. Wonder where they met? I love Gina Carano, but she's totally wrong for Wonder Woman.


This rumor might have some legs and I really could see this happening. But that's only if they get a Justice League flick going off the ground and word is that it's still stuck in development hell.

They do make quite the attractive couple though

is it possible that a fictional superhero is gay? Sure. He's fictional.

If they want him to be able to talk to horses or be a reformed pedophile all they have to do is write it down on paper. This is a strange thread.

My question was based on the stories and character development already established, not what is possible in the future.
