“It’s a bird . . . It’s a plane . . . It’s the new gay Superman?” According to a DC spokesman, “they are about to reintroduce a previously existing DC character who was previously straight and now will be ‘one of our most prominent gay characters.’” Fox News asks, “Could Superman be gay?” Probably not, but his character will certainly voice his strong approval of whoever DC decides to “out.”
This isn’t the first time the comic book industry has been out front in its support of homosexuality. In the March 1992 issue of Marvel’s Alpha Flight comic book series, Northstar, a former (fictional) Canadian Olympic athlete, decides to come out of the closet after seeing the ravaging effect that AIDS has had on an abandoned baby. He decides to adopt the infant victim. At one point in the story, he cries out, “I am gay.” Here’s the full panel:
“For while I am not inclined to discuss my sexuality with people for whom it is none of their business — I am gay.”
The folks at Marvel never asked how the baby got AIDS and what the relationship is between homosexuality and AIDS. For the most part, AIDS was most prevalent among homosexuals and drug users. Again, few people asked why. AIDS is not a heterosexual disease.
While the Northstar character was not inclined to discuss is sexuality with other people, now it seems that it’s all homosexuals want to discuss, and they want children to be taught about their preferred sexual choices in government schools. California now requires that homosexuality be portrayed in public schools in a positive manner. History textbooks will be rewritten to include the agenda.
Marvel is expected to announce Northstar’s “engagement” to his “boyfriend,” Kyle, on ABC’s The View on May 22, 2012.
In 2011, the Archie Comic book franchise announced that it was adding a homosexual character to join Archie, Jughead, Veronica, and Betty. “Life with Archie,” issue 16, featured an “interracial, same-sex wedding of character Lt. Kevin Keller, a white American soldier wounded in Iraq, and Clay Walker, the black physical therapist who helped him recover.” Naturally, the homosexual-inspired series was lauded by homosexual groups and the American Civil Liberties Union.
Homosexuals want the children, and they are doing everything in their power to molest their young minds. The number of homosexual characters is increasing. You can find them in Teen Titans, Young Avengers, Batwoman, and Astonishing X-Men. Marvel announced in December 2002 that it was reviving the 1950’s character “The Rawhide Kid” as an openly homosexual character.1 I don’t know how well homosexual-character themed comics do the in the marketplace. I do know the Alpha Flight series has had a hard time staying in print.
In 1954, German-American psychiatrist Frederick Wertham published the book The Seduction of the Innocent. While Wertham was a little over the top in his evaluation of comics in that era, he did understand that popular culture can be used as a moral wedge.Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
