Super Gay!

First Marvel comics takes Spiderman to the inaugural to get all gushy with Obama and now.....The first gay superhero!

SPIDER-MAN creator Stan Lee is to unveil the world’s first gay superhero. High school basketball star Thom Creed hides his developing superpowers along with his sexuality. Former Marvel Comics boss Stan, 86 — who also created the Hulk and the X-Men — will unleash the character in an hour-long TV drama being shot in the US. If it’s a hit there it will cross to the UK. TV execs hope it will rival the huge success of shows likes Heroes. Lee developed the idea of a gay character from the award-winning novel Hero by Perry Moore. The first gay superhero!

Hey. What about "The Ambiguously Gay Duo??!"

JammieWearingFool sees it this way:

Instead of emerging from a phonebooth he'll bust out of a closet warbling showtunes while fighting off evil Mormons who contributed to the Prop 8 vote.

I say let's just let Spiderman give Obama an upside kiss at the inaugural and be done with it.
