If it's not one of the current starting lineup, who really cares?

Just an attempt to share in the publicity Marvel is getting for Northstar's upcoming nuptials.

Incidentally, talking about showing a gay man's nuptials in a comic book does make the whole thing sound kind of indecent. TeddyR

Um...wow. This thread sure got heated.  Buggedout So have they announced who the gay character is gonna be yet? That was the only reason I even clicked on this thread, I was wondering who it was gonna be.


I'm betting it's going to be "Martian Manhunter."

Just out of curiosity...why?

I don't know of another forum on the net where we could have this discussion and it be kept as polite and civilized as we have done on this thread - kudos to all concerned!

(For the record, I don't think Emo Spiderman is a DC creation, but he would be my candidate!)

People can disagree and still respect one another. Simple wisdom too often forgotten these days.

For those still paying attention to the original post, the unofficial scuttlebutt is that it is going to be Alan Scott.

If you find yourself asking, "Who?" don't feel bad. He was the original Green Lantern (the one in the festive colors). He's a character, but not a major one. If this truly is the case, then it's a lot of brouhaha over nothing. The whole issue will be about as progressive as Northstar of Alpha Flight coming out in the early '90s. Nobody cares.
Saying it's going to be a major character and then announcing it's Alan Scott is like saying you have a huge Hollywood star in your movie and then revealing it's Clint Howard. 

"Hey, you know Green Lantern, that character nobody cared about even when he got a huge movie, toylines, videogames, and DC telling everybody what a great character he is even though nobody really believed it?  Well, here's the version of the character that people care even less about!  Your grandfather might have read his comics." 

Nice choice DC.  Couldn't you have at least said somebody like Hawkman?  Sure nobody really cares about him either, but at least they've heard of him.

How about the Wonder Twins?

You'd get a lesbian, a gay man, and a monkey!

The crazy thing about that is, it wouldn't be the first gay monkey that DC comics had. 

Okay, technically it was a gorilla, but my point still stands.

I think the "monkey" had a tale and therefore is not a gorilla or any kind of ape.

I think he's talking about this:






Now, they're both male, but technically it's an interspecies relationship. Also, even before the Brain got that shiny new robot body, he was already a brain in a jar, so I'm not sure how male he even is anymore.

So in some sense, it's a homosexual bestial relationship, and that's progressive. At the same time, the categories are pretty darn blurred. What really is going on there? And does it matter? They both got blown up really good before consummation.

Still a touching moment. Makes me wonder why DC doesn't crow about their previous strides in making a relationship involving homosexuality and bestiality between a genetically modified ape and a brain in a jar more palatable for the comic-reading public.
