Batman is not gay by Morrison's yardstick, he's asexual.
    Batman being asexual? On behalf of the asexual community, we'll accept that. Not that it's true, given Batman's propensity for having sex, but you know, Batman!

    I found him tiresome when he trashed Secret Invasion in lieu of Final Crisis. Secret Invasion may not have been the greatest and it set up Dark Reign, which I hated, but at least I could understand what the hell was going on unlike Final Crisis. And that goes double for R.I.P as well.

    Batman can do anything. He can even be asexual when he's having sex!

    Comic writers do it all the time dude. And I'll never get those complaints about FC and R.I.P. they're not straightforward, but there is a point.

    Actually that's quite possible. See to us its like shopping with your wife, you can do it for her sake, but it's not as if your not crazy about it.

    Also I should point out that it IS possible to be an asexual and pursue romantic interests. We just prefer it if are romantic entanglements make less of a mess.

    I really like Spiffy's description of WW.

    And it made Bendis angry, very very angry.

    Did he turn black with a Roman centurion helmet and really big sneakers?

    Don't you people know the gay rule in comics? The longer a character is in constant use, the higher the amount of people that at some point describe them as homosexual :3

    Thank you for informing me of my intentions. Ones I don't have, by the way.

    I spent some time myself criticizing his use of the word "pervy". But acknowledging that didn't help your desire to zing me.

    Quoting myself:
    That doesn't and shouldn't mean fetish outfits and being portrayed as a slut (I use that word intentionally, because I'm saying her sexuality should not be portrayed as a bad thing--its the very opposite). If that's all he means by marching out "pervy", then there's a problem here. Grant has gotten that part DEAD wrong before.

    It would have been funnier if he had, but no he did not turn into Marvin, although metaphoric mushroom clouds were involved.

    Let's just say it lead to Bendis regretting and apologizing to several people who where the target of his outburst, including a certain beloved crazy redhead hairdresser who is under the delusions that she writes comics for a living.
