The Hottest Issue In Comics This Week

Welcome to Comical-Musings on a week where comics are in the news!  We try to address things that are going on content-wise in comics when they occur, but I didn’t see anything shocking about Northstar being a homosexual since he has been an identified gay character since he came out in 1992.  Then, when I found out this week that after President Obama endorsed gay marriage (for votes), Northstar’s same-sex marriage would be occurring in Astonishing X-Men #51 (for sales).  I didn’t find myself surprised or inspired to write anything about it at all.  Now I am inspired.


In what could be considered a “knee-jerk” move, DC comics announced yesterday that it would be having one of it’s “iconic” characters coming out as early as June.  This is a big deal, because DC recently revamped all of their comic book lines and anything is possible.  With a word like “iconic,” it sends your mind spinning.  Who could be the DC character, previously assumed as a heterosexual, to come out as a homosexual?  Will it effect book sales?  Is there a possibility that it won’t change anything and that the world is truly tolerant?  I for one am fascinated to find out.

In that spirit, we at Comical-Musings are taking bets as to which DC character will be coming out in June.  The writer who guesses correctly will receive a copy of the issue where the coming out occurs and the solemn duty to review it.  In the case that there is a tie, a coin will be flipped.  The entries are as follows:

Scott Deaux:  Green Arrow

Hal:  Superboy

The Blackness Monster:  Batman

Aberdeen:  The Flash

Cap:  Shazam!

Romeo Sid Vicious:  Aquaman

Shiera Carter:  Booster Gold

Lobster J:  Aquaman


So, there you have it.  We will see who wins and how this effects anything, if at all.  Who do you think it will be?

  1. I think it’s Swampthing. He loves trees.

  2. Didio I believe stated that DC will “reintroduce a previously existing DC character who was previously straight”. Due to the wording of reintroduce, I’m under the impression it isn’t someone who really has made an appearance in the new 52 DCU yet. That should mean people like Batman, Superman, and Aquaman will not be the one to come out. Though as Shazam seems to be just showing up, I think that could still leave him as a candidate.

  3. That’s a decent point. Has Booster surfaced in New 52?

  4. Scott Snyder also just stated that it wasn’t Batman on Twitter.

  5. Booster was part of Justice League International that recently got cancelled, though I do think he’d be an interesting and probably a good choice to go with.
