So where are all the positive gay and lesbian role models in the DC Universe?
Especially when it comes to gay male heros, DC's falling behind. All of the gay characters are either minor or just have fallen out of the public eye. And then there are the ones that just aren't that great.
I mean, we've got the two ex-Guardians kicked out of Oa, but the rule-breaking little blue men who lost their jobs for loving each other don't make for good role models in life. And there's Terry Berg, the boy jumped in an alley and nearly killed for being gay. That certainly draws you out of the closet, right? There's the Piper, the Flash villain who goes back and forth between heroism and villainy. And there's the other villain-hero, Obsidian.
As far as I can tell, there's only Josiah Powers who would make a fairly decent role model.
Oh, oh, did I forget to mention the gorilla and the bodiless brain? Monsieur Mallah and The Brain. That's just weird.
