This is disturbing. (Original link no longer available. Story was in reference to Chuck Dixon writing the Midnighter.) Why would you ask someone who doesn’t think homosexuality belongs in comics to write a character known as the gay Batman? That’s like asking a white supremacist to write Black Panther.
Then again, DC also had Bill Willingham, whose female characters are (let’s say) often traditional and stereotypical, write Thessaly, which explains why she was almost a supporting character in her own title, with the guy ghost taking lead. They don’t always bat 100% when it comes to matching up creators and characters.
Update: Why having gay heroes matters.
