Good morning. I found this article today: Lesbian Batwoman Is DC Comics' First Gay Superhero.OK, not a bad headline I thought, so checked the article out... and I saw this line:
"...is taking over from Bruce Wayne, who suffered an untimely demise in a recent issue of Detective Comics' longest-running series."
WTF!? I had NO IDEA that Batman is dead... but then further research showed this:
NY Daily News Article
So it looks like he's NOT quite six feet under just yet. But this got me thinking about Superheroes and why people view me as one. Not really. I actually got to thinking about who my favorite Superhero was, and I'd have to say it was always Spiderman. I know, he couldn't fly, and I know, he couldn't stretch, go on fire, go invisible, or turn green and break things. But he always struck me as being more 'human', more like a normal guy, and the way he could bounce around walls and things like a free-runner got me really excited in his adventures when I was younger. He was the one Superhero I wanted to be.
So a question to the unwashed masses - who was YOUR favorite? Who did YOU use to want to be? Responses in the usual manner...
