No, that's not some not-so-clever attempt at a jab against some latest DC development. I'm referring to a plot point in the latest issue (#9) of Doom Patrol, which remains a great read.

So the bad guys, the Pan-Dimensional Gentrifiers, are after Danny the Brick (formerly Danny the World).



In case it's too small to read, the text Danny's displaying reads: Mmm. World War One chic. Quite dashing.







The Gentrifiers are preparing to take over the Earth (or possibly the universe; it's not clear), when they run a property viability assessment. They decide they don't want it after all.


All those Crises and mega-events were good for something!

He started as a transvestite street. Then he became a planet. Now he's a brick... and gay.

Not really a huge leap, if you think about it...

Wait, I didn't know he was gay. I knew he was a transvestite, but the gay thing is new to me.

Ok, I hate to ask, pardon my ignorance but how can a street be a transvestite?

It's kind of hard to describe, but Danny was full of macho, manly shops, like ammo stores and mens outfitters, but is always window dressed in feminine style.

*giggle* I would love to see a street that looked like that, in a comic or in real life. Got any images of transvestite!street!Danny to share? *makes puppy face*

ILU. Oh, that is very cute. I'm particularly fond of the gun shop's pink curtains.

Here's a wider shot. The writeup even includes an explanation of his name.

He's transvestite and camp as hell, but he's never been stated as gay.

... You know, describing Danny as 'camp' makes me think...

He gives rather a new meaning to 'camp as a row of tents'...

And 'pitching a tent.'
