I'm not too surprised, and not surprised that Stan Lee is behind this, but I am surprised that it will be a TV drama.

How do you think this will go over as a TV show?

How do you think this will affect the Comic Book Industry?

How will it affect the whole current image of " Super Heroes " ?


Comments or Opinions?

This doesn't surprise me really. I seem to recall a character from the Batman Series, Renee Montoya, being in her own series and not hiding the fact that she's a lesbian. I guess it was a matter of time until an actual superhero would be attracted to his/her own gender. The best comment I can give comes from a video game

"A truly evolved man moves with the times"

That seems to fit quite well to this ever growing world.

This should have been placed on the Ridiculous Item Of The Day

Actually, believe it or not, I really considered doing that very thing. :p I myself thought it was extremely "ridiculous", but on second thought, I didn't think too many people would agree with me. Maybe I was wrong on that, though. :yaknow:

It's hardly the first gay superhero, despite what that article claims. It would be the first one on a television series that I can recall offhand, but not the first one ever. There are actually quite a few of them. A percentage are characters that were created without this aspect in their characters and had it added years later, but there are many that were created to be gay characters. One of the most famous examples from recent memory might be Batwoman, who was gathered a decent amount of media attention because she was created with this as an aspect of the character.

It probably is the first one created by Stan Lee, though.

This seems kind of gimmicky to me; it seems like a desperate attempt to gain the public's interest. Don't ask me why I think of it this way, I couldn't even give you an answer.
