Let’s check out the Superman/Batman end of the sci fi pool today.
When I was in my early teens, I started collecting comic books, and I was fascinated by Superman – good looking guy, great muscles, and really good inside too. But in my wildest youth fantasies, I couldn’t have imagined a gay superhero at the time.
But now they’re popping out all over – and not just gay ones – lesbian, bisexual – maybe even transgender.
And just this morning I saw an article about a crowdfunding effort for a gay Mormon superhero (photo above)!
So here are my questions for today: What super power would you give to a gay character? And it doesn’t need to be a sexual power (though some of you will undoubtedly go there). Also, what kind of superhero stories can we tell that will shed light on the LGBt community and society as a whole?
