Happy Harvey Milk Day!


News coming out of the Kapow comic convention in London is that DC is planning to switch the sexual orientation of one of their characters.

Holy Continuity Crisis, Batman, I bet Fredric Wertham is spinning in his grave!

DC co-publisher Dan DiDio said the newly queer character will be "one of our most prominent gay characters." Neat!

I know nothing about comics*, so I won't speculate about a hypothesis on who the newest rainbow warrior will be. Wonder Woman? Superman? Thor? Iron Fist? Could be anyone! I'll leave that discussion up to you.

Also. Important question. (Not really important.) Who will freak out more? Rightwing dirtbags who are prone to freaking out about all things gay? OR: DC fans who believe there is nothing more important in the universe than canon? I don't care. They can both shut up!

* Full disclosure: I never much liked comic books and/or superheroes. I tried once, in earnest, to "get into them" but had no luck. (The only comic I ever really liked was Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children, which was exceedingly unpopular. Whoops.)

The Weirdest TV Tie-In Ever

Fitz and the Tantrums have a sort-of cameo on Criminal Minds. Their music video is intercut with a gruesome murder. Okay then.
