"We all wish that we could do that and we need to be inspired to do that when it comes to being strong. Not of course to punch our fist through people’s faces, but that’s the most exciting thing about being able to tell these stories. Finally, a gay couple gets to be the heroes and get to tell stories, where, for a relative rarity, we don’t die at the end. We’re the heroes now and finally we get to be in that space." -- Steve Orlando

I didn't realize what that last page was homaging until someone explicitly pointed it out, but it's great either way.

It's an homage to "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow".

At least it's a discrete story with a satisfying ending, right?

The best stories are like that. It's a difficult balance. On the one end are things like Firefly, and on the other, things like The Simpsons.

Hopefully we will get more, but it may not be in this particular form.

From what I recall

This mini only happened because DC was pleasantly surprised to see Midnighter's two trades sell as well as they did.

And Extraño from Millennium, whom these creators somehow managed to turn into a character who's NOT just a walking collection of offensive stereotypes.

I assume the woman with the ponytail is René Montoya? No idea about the guy in the red bandana, though I'm fairly certain he's not Todd Rice/Obsidian.

No, those two are Marina and Tony. They're original supporting characters Orlando created for his Midnighter run.

Oh yeah, I remember them from the series. I have the first volume.
Man, it stinks Midnighter doesn't have enough pull to get a new ongoing. Then again, we can always hope.

Aw couldn't he just go a little bit further with the ending? least show them discarding their clothing on the floor ;)

How far can they go with sexual content anyway?

They've gotten quite graphic in the past with sex scenes, as much if not more than most of the straight couple sex scenes I've read in comics. For example:

Though that's not the most graphic scene I've seen from the series.
