Gay Superheroes

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s … a gay superhero! Since concerned parents in the 1950s first accused Batman and Robin of modeling a same-sex relationship, there has always been a close association between LGBT identity and superheroes. Something about hiding an identity from the public and having to “pass” as an ordinary person — not to mention the fabulous costumes! Now some superheroes are being portrayed as clearly gay — showing that justice, whether on a cosmic level or an interpersonal one, is something worth fighting for.

"We’re not going to nail it in the first movie or the second movie or third movie, or the first show or second show, but we will do our best to consistently try to represent.”
