  1. Ok so Captain America is relaunched as a black man.

    Thor is relaunched as a woman.

    But a bisexual Constantine CAN'T be BI!!! He's gotta be STRAIGHT-washed for the masses.

    And we CAN'T have a GAY HERO! That's an oxymoron; because everybody knows that gays are weak and ineffectual... They can only be the occasional comic relief for the butt of a joke.

    American Dad style: What happens when your gay neighbors have a bottle of wine that you want and they won't give it to you? You kick down their door, slap their faces with a spatula, and when they're crying over their faces and being invaded, you take their bottle of wine - that's it. It's not like the gays would DO anything about it...

  4. That Time op-ed by Friess is really, really weak. If you're looking for a rebuttal of Sierra Mannie's piece, you'd be better off reading Michelle Garcia's op-ed:

    marvle claimed they would try not to come off so homophobic ,due to killing him off, and would introduce more gay characters BUT they haven't carried through on that

  12. Of course, you do not read Marvel comics.

    Most of the Young Avengers team, most notably Teddy Altman and Billy Kaplan, Hulkling and Wiccan are gay.

    Teddy is the heir to two galactic kingdoms, who chose to stay on Eart for his boyfriend, Billy, who is the created son of Scarlet Witch and Vision, granson of Magneto, created from the shard of Mephistos soul, and the future Dem,iurg who will create universe in his image ( literally ).
