I am not satisfied with the current crop of GTB males in the comic book world. They are too flat. It seems like every new gay guy already has a boyfriend or finds one too quick and easy. It was cute for a while and now its just uhhh. Where are the hopeless romantics who keep looking for Mr. Right but always ending up with Mr. Wrong? Where is the characters that always find Mr. Right but always in the wrong place and at the wrong time? Where are the love triangles? Where are downlow characters that sneak around?
How about a coming out story that doesn't end in open arms and the straight best friends saying, "dude, I've always known".
How about a character that goes through obstacles caused by his sexuality.
I want to see a flamboyant character who thinks he's the most fabulous thing that was ever created. I want to see a masculine character who thinks he's a man's man's man. The "they're just like us" routine is getting old. No more cookie cutter gays that fit in the politic correct world. I would like for once in a while to be offended and not appeased. And don't get me started on the "oh I just remembered I like boys too" plot magic.
Oh and can we not use the variants of the "you're barking up the wrong tree" and "it's ironic cause I'm gay" jokes. It's only funny when midnighter says it.
Oh of you haven't noticed I would get up and applaud the statement, "midnighter is the best developed gay character in comic book history"
