Not that she needed to be a
lesbian to have the geeks fantasize
about her, but it's a nice touch

Yes, you heard correctly. Batwoman is back ... as a lesbian! Times certainly are changing -- I remember when Robin was the only gay "Batman" character. He's not? You've got to be kidding.

Anyway, according to DC Comics, "The 5-foot-10 superhero comes with flowing red hair, knee-high red boots with spiked heels, and a form-fitting black outfit." This is exactly what most lesbians look like. Just ask Sonny & Cher's daughter.

This development has gotten me thinking about other superheroes whose capes may swing the other way, if you get my drift. There's Plastic Man, of course, and Wonder Woman (Paradise Island, indeed). And I always thought Power Man and Iron Fist had a little sum-sum going on there.

Regardless, the lesbian Batwoman is bound to lead the way in terms of diversity in comic books, as long as the characters all still have tiny waists and breasts the size of zeppelins.
