With Great Power comes Straight Responsibility? Not anymore. Just remember to lock the door when kids are afoot boys. Someone needs to tell these tragic heroes that Its alright, Its OK, Superheroes CAN be gay! Villains too I suppose.
Norways answer to The Lonely Island boys, comedy sensation Kollektivet has launched a new humorously ironic musical send up of the lack of gay role models in comics. The video is pretty damned funny, but about 5 years late.
With Northstar’s impending X-Wedding, Batwoman defending Gotham while dating a lady cop, Apollo and Midnighter reromancing in Stormwatch, Bunker being his flamboyant self in Teen Titans, Stryker coming out and Lightspeed planning a lesbian rainbow date with Runaway Karolina Dean in Avengers Academy and Rictor/Shatterstar’s ongoing relationship… not to mention Wiccan and Hulkling FINALLY sharing their first on-panel kiss – comics are more inclusive and supportive than ever before! Its about time. All that aside – the video is hilarious. Someone just needs to get the kid some current American comics so he’s not so shocked.
