Now I am very tempted to suggest Jason Todd 1.0 or Tim Drake for this one, for taking on the role of Robin, each in their own way (Sorry Jason Todd 2.0 fans, I appreciate your POV, I just happen not to agree with it)

Technically Dick Grayson was not the first Nightwing, but since no one on Earth had any real clue about an identity that Superman used when he wanted to be a Batman-esque superhero when visiting Kandor, I think that would be a stretch too far.

Mile Morales would be another fine candidate, but instead I’m going to be just a little obvious and go for the first sidekick actually achieve what had only been intimated in the past (and which Dick had actually subverted by becoming his own, different, hero)

I feel slightly disloyal when I say, quite sincerely, that I don’t really follow characters because they are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, queer, aswexual (or anywhere in the glorious spectrum inbetween and beyond) or even straight. I follow them because I like the characters and want to see what happens next with them, and if they happen to be something other than hetero-normative in their preferences all I ask is that it’s treated with the same level of taste and decency usually reserved for straight folk.

I’m probably a little immunised to the concept by growing up reading a lot of Claremont X-Titles, where a little... grey area in characters sexuality was a given, what with so many deep and strong same-sex friendships that one had to wonder… Storm and Yukio? Rachel and Kitty? Heck, Kurt and Logan sometimes... and what exactly WAS the nature of the relationship between Doug and Warlock after they’d bonded at the molecular level a time or two?

Though I don’t actually like Mystique much, her relationship with Destiny was usually nicely handled, but like I said, I don’t care for Mystique in any other capacity.

A few more lesser known choices came to mind, the rather lovely “We’ve been married for forty years as far as we’re concerned” Jetman (formerly Jetboy, a WWII aerial ace based closely on Airboy) and fellow WWII airman Wulf, in “Top 10”, or the cute couple of Blue Comet and Fusion in the “Boy Meets Hero” webcomic, the new Jem comic will apparently have Kimber and Stormer as being in/having had a relationship, but that's not out yet.

Instead I went for a character whose emergence as a gay character was handled with admirable lack of brouhaha for the time it happened in… I mean Hartley Rathaway, better known as

In five (likely non-canon) years, Wally West gets super-speed. Here's how:Read more... )
 
 
This reminds me, what if Wally's origin turned out to be exactly the same as Barry's? Would a plot point like that still be plausible in today's analytic comic-reading society?

My first commissioned art by the talented Mitch Ballard!

I wanted a fun & sexy piece featuring my favorite Titan couples from the New Teen Titans era. Preferably with them half naked:) the guys would be shirtless while the girls wear their shirts. Mitch came up with the wonderful concept of them doing laundry. He even added Gar & Vic!

Every interest, every hobby, every fetish has to start somewhere. And it was such a quiet, innocent day in a bookstore when I came across a comic that I would only later identify as Justice League Adventures #17.

Now, back then, superhero comics were pretty much the last thing on my mind. I recognized most of the really iconic heroes - mostly in their Timmverse incarnations - but I was primarily invested in Tintin comics, along with a stipend of Chinese-translated Disney comics that my grandparents would mail over from The People's Republic every few months. There was something about this one though, that just made me want to pick it up.

Fast-forward ten years, and I'm now neck-deep in a den of debauchery involving (amongst other things) homicidal clowns, mute ninja Batgirls, and X-rated fanfiction about people who insist on putting their underwear outside of their pants. And you know what? I wouldn't have it any other way.

In retrospect, this particular comic isn't really much of a keeper - the story's kinda goofy and shallow, especially in comparison with the kind of tie-in comics that previous DCAU properties, like Batman: The Animated Series, got. General consensus around the 'net also seems to be that the quality of the DCAU tie-in comics slowly went down the toilet as time went on, with the ones for Justice League Unlimited truly hitting the bottom of the barrel. Anyone who cares to comment on this part, please do!

But enough about that. On with this tribute the the one that started it all.

Femdom, crossdresing, and more behind the cut! )

So, in this last week's Fanart Thursday thread, the issue of "iconic" and what it means in the New 52 came up, and some people were complaining that Barry's new costume was just an altered version of Wally's. And I couldn't help but find this funny.

See, the issue of Barry and Wally having similar-looking costumes (to the point where it can be difficult to distinguish them from each other when their cowls are up) has been raised before...

Warning, lots of spoilers for Mark Waid's Flash run )
