There is so much going on in the comic world that really anything can be discussed here. From DC to Marvel, from figures to movies, comics are everywhere with much to talk about.

That's because ther eis a current storyline where Batman (Bruce Wayne) is retiring and passing the cowl to a replacemnet. Batwoman is a contender for the replacement.

I'm not really surprised it didn't take off. Regardless of your feelings on the issue of homosexuality, you can't really base an interesting character around "he/she is gay" any more than you can base an interesting character around "he/she is straight." You need quite a bit more to hook an audience, because after the novelty wears off, they're going to want something else.

Exactly.

It's the exact reason why you don't see Marvel What If's like 'What if Spider-man was gay?" Instead, you see things like 'What if the Punisher was Venom?' or 'What if Spider-man had kept 6 arms?' These can be elaborated upon, but the sexual orientation issue is pretty much a stale point.

I've yet to know anyone who was gay that there was their only defining character point. this is catching on though, i posted another topic in the main forum i think, about Stan lee now making a guy character.

I fear less about them trying to get gay people to read comics, and more about them pushing a liberal moral agenda.
