Is one of the world's most iconic superheroes really a gay man? Action Comics writer Grant Morrison, who is best known for revamping DC Comics' family of Batman titles, spoke at length about comic superheroes in an interview with Playboy magazine, confirming maybe those Batman and Robin rumors aren't so far-fetched after all, because the title character is "very, very gay."

"He’s very plutonian in the sense that he’s wealthy and also in the sense that he’s sexually deviant," Morrison told the magazine. "Gayness is built into Batman. I’m not using gay in the pejorative sense, but Batman is very, very gay. There’s just no denying it. Obviously as a fictional character he’s intended to be heterosexual, but the
basis of the whole concept is utterly gay."

In fact, Morrison adds, Batman's "gayness" is actually part of the character's near-universal appeal: "I think that’s why people like it. All these women fancy him and they all wear fetish clothes and jump around rooftops to get to him. He doesn’t care -- he’s more interested in hanging out with the old guy and the kid."


The obvious was not so obvious in my eyes for years. Since Batman is one of my favorite superheros from the days of my childhood this is some major news to me.

If you look at all the stories with that info afterwards it is like watching a new movie / reading a new book (kind of). Even if the directors / writers wasn´t aware of Buttmans .. oh sorry
... Batmans background.

Anyway, I know few gay people and I don´t give a s*it about your sexual preferences if you don´t harm other people.

What do you think about it?
Please be nice. Thanks and have a great day!

hard for him to be gay when he has slept with catwoman and batgirl/oracle.

sexual deviant doesnt mean he is gay either. means hes probably into kinky rough stuff.

The fact that some people talk about a comic book fictional character as if a real person makes me wonder about their mental health...

its fun personifying fictional characters and making them seem real and more larger than life then they already are.

its like talking about who would win between Goku and Superman.

or 'what ifs' involving history.

imagination. its fun. try it sometime.

OK I apologise.... I was just up out of bed and had not had my 10 cigs and 22 coffees yet...

Thinking about it though... I would still be more engaged if Wonder Woman became bi with Cat Woman...

So what? That doesn't change anything for me. The Batman was always my favorite of the Superheroes. Why? Because Batman was not bitten by a radioactive spider, or have anything spill on him. He was just an ordinary, albeit healthy, and in great physical shape man with some very cool toys. Also, in the Comics, the Batman was an outlaw, and only had the ear of the Police Commissioner, Gordon.
