DC Comics Superhero To Come Out Of The Closet


From BuzzFeed:

Over the weekend, at the Kapow Comic Convention in London, DC announced they were reversing their position in regards to changing the sexual orientation of established characters, citing President Obama as their inspiration.

Co-Publisher Dan DiDio was quoted as saying an established character would become "one of our most prominent gay characters."

Add your speculations and reasons in comments. I'd have to see the superhero's apartment first. Every one knows gays are meticulous housekeepers (not that there's anything wrong with that).

The obvious choice is Batman. He's just a little too close to Robin and Alfred. But then again, he does live in a cave, which no self-respecting gay guy would ever do.

I'm assuming it will be a male superhero, as a lesbian superhero would be a non-story.
