The (Social) Justice League
DC Comics co-publisher Dan DiDio confirmed at London’s Kapow Comic Convention that the company responsible for Superman, Batman, and the Justice League is planning to bring out of the closet one of its “major” characters, modifying previous reports that DC would be creating an all-new gay character. Senior vice president Bob Wayne said that the company’s policy on gay characters has “evolved.” Convenient timing.
Still awaiting word on Marvel’s inevitable one-upmanship. The Transgender Avengers, anyone?
