"I think it’s hardly surprising and entirely healthy for us to want to sample and revisit classic stories and characters from different eras.It reflects the richness and diversity of the DCU and its long history, and adds to the mythology that makes the DCU such a compelling place. You can be nostalgic for the eras of the past and still love the present incarnations. Just ask any Doctor Who fan." - Dan Abnett

"Andy Lanning and I are no longer working together, and indeed haven’t worked together since early last year except to finish commitments. The very long-standing relationship was no longer working, and the split was for the best. I am very much happier now working solo." - Dan Abnett

"I've loved the multiverse concept throughout my long association with DC. Some see DC's history as a stumbling block, but all I see is endless possibilities. So having taken the time to establish the New 52, I think it's a perfect time to revisit previous incarnations and celebrate just how enduring these characters are, and how many great ways there are to play them." - Tony Bedard

"A superhero is someone who, at some point or in some way, inspires hope or is the enemy of cynicism. Even if you bog it down with political allegory ... You still need to take the cynical out of it." - Mark Waid

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
