To my deep irritation I found out today that Courtney Simmons senior vice-president of publicity for DC comics, told ABC News that “One of the major iconic DC characters will reveal that he is gay in a storyline in June.”
This is important because the world is divided into people who prefer DC comics characters or Marvel characters.
This is going to be a problem for characters with a strong back story. Superman has his Lois Lane, for example. And I think that stupid choice would simply irritate the whole world.
Okay, we had better have a poll:
