    Wish they would make an FtM hero.

  2. Cute girl. WIsh it was me.

  3. Newsarama.com reported on this and posted the full page of the character’s revelation. The best part about the whole thing was Barbara’s reaction of love and acceptance. This article should mention that Gail Simone is stranger to LGBT issues and characters, having written a lesbian couple in her old book Secret Six for DC.

  4. I think there’s a little too much reporting of comic book storylines on PinkNews. Yes, they’re full of LGBT stuff…we get it! Newsworthy? No!

      It’s maybe becoming less newsworthy than it was to have LGB characters in comics, but positive portrayal of trans characters appearing in mainstream media like this is still news, since it’s still so rare.

    I read the comic yesterday – it’s kind of a shame that the touching trans revelation is bookended by scenes of brutal violence… but that’s comics. I agree it’s time for comics to acknowledge the existence of trans men too.
