    All the female super-heroes should be gay (DC or Marvel). They would make far more interesting reading.

    And of course there are the gay super-villainesses – well, Catwoman is pretty obviously bi these days, and mostly not a villain – but Harley and Ivy's relationship was wonderful to watch in the old "Adventures" books (though it was eventually revealed that that wasn't Ivy at all – and where the real Pamela Isley had been all along was a lovely twist).

    Nice how they've backed off the initial hype concerning Batwoman now that they have a Batman movie coming out, eh?C-O-P-O-U-T-!

    Nothing new there. They copped out with Warren Ellis "Shoot" story on Hellblazer (which led to his resignation on that title); they copped out with Rich Veitch's Swamp Thing story about swamp thing meeting Jesus on a walk in the swamp.They copout everytime a story parallels a controversal topic/event and is afraid of monetary backlash.

    Everyone wants to pay lip service to things without really addressing them.The appearance of being hip without the real work.God forbid any of the male heroes be gay.That ain't NEVER gonna happen!

    Check out THE BOYS and POWERS (SELL-OUTS tpb), for in-the-closet homosexuality.When it comes to gay (or anything else) equality, there's no such thing in the funny books.
