"in some cases you can't even tell there WAS a reboot"


The reboot plagues me day and night.

Barda and Mister Miracle!

These two are a close second and third after Batman and Catwoman for me.

What the film needs is a better understanding of the source material, a better paced plot, a more coherent script and a tone down of the epicly destructive action. Then we're getting somewhere. And no more Superman killing or being mopey/emoish or dark and brooding. He's about inspiration, hope, empathy and striving to be better.

Second.

@pyrogram: Thanks. :) Expecting things to stay the same in comics is like expecting people to always be civil and courteous on-line. They'll often disappoint you.

There's always the question why should someone care about a fictional character's sexual orientation that much.

BB

Because that's NOT Spider-Man's sexual orientation.

His sexuality is what I want it to be.

@pyrogram said:

Because we like character integrity?

lol.

If you like character integrity, don't get into comics. Characters change constantly.

I don't think changing Spider-Man's sexuality would be bad change, though. It would create greater exposure for homosexuality in popular culture, which would hopefully lead to wider acceptance. But, like Billy Batson, I think it's mostly a moot point in terms of how it effects the character. He's still the same beloved, friendly neighborhood spider-man who believes that with great power comes great responsibility. He just likes a guy now instead of a girl. And I take issue with the fact that people object to or are appalled by the idea.

But, it's just a thought-experiment. It's NOT going to happen. Homosexuality hasn't received the level of acceptance in our society where having a bisexual super hero wouldn't hurt box office numbers. And, it's true, Sony wants to make money. If they didn't, they wouldn't have rushed into making Spider-Man in the first place, so soon after the last series.

He may have the right to do what he wishes with the character he created, but that doesn't justify his views.

That being said, I'm more offended by the audience, who were clapping and cheering at Stan's jokes, than Stan himself. Stan may have intended his comments to be taken lightly, but the audience affirmed the implication that bisexuality is unacceptable through their applause. And they don't have age as an excuse.

Stan doesn't say anything wrong in the video. If I created a character that isn't gay in any way, shape or form and they become as big as Spider-Man and then years down the line someone tries to make him bi, I would have a problem with that. People reach to hard to be offended.

In this case, I think the implication is that he's baffled by the idea of Spider-Man being gay because he has old-fashioned views about sex and sexuality. I don't agree with him, but I think that he has age as an excuse. However, the audience isn't excused for applauding him. By doing so, they affirm the idea that bisexual characters, and by extension, homosexual and trans characters, don't have a place in comics. I disagree with that viewpoint and find it bigoted. And if making your character bisexual bothers you, then I have to ask, "Why?"

Gotham City is the worst place on earth. In addition to the on-going struggle against organized crime, Gotham is home to the inmates of Arkham Asylum, The Court of Owls, The Religion of Crime, and The Mutants. In Batwoman #0 - Beyond a Shadow, Batwoman travels across the world, entering into some of the deadliest conflict zones on the planet, in order to prepare herself for crime fighting in Gotham. Batman, as a mortal man, is only able to equal Superman because he has been repeatedly tested and hardened by his experiences fighting crime in Gotham. And speaking of Superman, In No Man's Land, Superman attempted to offer his aid to the crumbling Gotham, but had to retreat when he realized that he wasn't well-equipped to handle the situation. Average, everyday cops just aren't enough in Gotham.
