DC Comics introduces several gay superheroes including Batwoman, The Question, and Voodoo in its new line of comic books.
DC Comics grabbed headlines last June when the company announced its entire line of comic books would be overhauled with 52 all-new #1 issues in September. Not only would iconic characters such as Superman and Wonder Woman restart with a fresh number, but costumes and origins for the entire universe of characters would be updated as well.
The company has also taken advantage of the relaunch to establish a wider range of diversity, introducing several LGBT characters in their own titles. Apollo and Midnighter, a gay superhero couple who previously existed in DC’s alternate Wildstorm line of comics, have been incorporated into the company’s main cast of characters. They will join lesbians Batwoman, The Question, and the bisexual African-American superhero Voodoo in DC’s new universe.
DC Comics Co-Publisher Dan Didio provided The Advocate with some insight into the new DC Universe and what we can expect to see from its expanding cast of LGBT characters.
