Some of the stuff on Chuck Dixon's message board just drives me batshit. I just read a thread about gays in the military that is infuriating. It wasn't started by Chuck, I hasten to add.

HOWEVER, I don't think Chuck is homophobic and he definitely does NOT put his political views on his characters, but rather is very respectful of what their histories have been. I think he writes far better and more competent women than many of the big names that are supposedly so great with female characterization (even though all their women are the same). Chuck's Black Canary was tough and fun, his Oracle was smart and determined, and the list goes on. He doesn't get enough credit for his female portrayals, in my opinion. I can read a LOT of his Birds of Prey over some of the much more acclaimed dreary, droopy female heroes out there right now.


I disagree with Chuck on almost everything political, but he's absolutely a play-fair writer, and I admire that a lot. A very nice guy, to boot.

If I were going by his superhero comics, I doubt I would be able to discern Chuck Dixon's political views at all.
