I think we all know that Robin was gay. I mean, green leatard, yellow vest…he’s either gay or a leprechaun. Anyway, we never had proof because we didn’t know EVERYTHING that was going on in the bat cave.
But, one of the caped crusader group is now officially out of the closet.
DC Comics is resurrecting the classic comic book character as a lesbian, unveiling the new Batwoman in July as part of an ongoing weekly series that began this year. The 5-foot-10 superhero comes with flowing red hair, knee-high red boots with spiked heels, and a form-fitting black outfit.
“We decided to give her a different point of view,” explained Dan DiDio, vice president and executive editor at DC. “We wanted to make her a more unique personality than others in the Bat-family. That’s one of the reasons we went in this direction.”
So, not only is she a lesbian, but she’s a hot, lipstick, dominatrix lesbian. I wonder if Halle Berry was approached about this “direction” before her stint as Catwoman. They already had Sharon Stone as the villian. Clearly, not a major leap for her. And it would’ve at least made the movie watchable.
I’m not saying DC Comics is trying to ramp up interest in their comics, but let’s just say that suddenly guys who probably never read a comic in their lives will be canvassing the comic stores for a copy.
I’m trying to picture the reaction of Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons.
By the way, this also begs the question…when are we seeing the first Wonder Woman/Batwoman makeout session? I’m just asking.
