  1. Nonsense. What they mean is that they don’t trust their own writers to produce compelling, complex and adult storylines – assuming that r/ships can only be expressed as angsty and/or soapy fluff.

    And aren’t two of the Fantastic Four married? It can be done, and it can be a game changer in that it alters character dynamics.

    Lousy excuse that holds little water, and insults the intelligence and maturity of their audience. Utterly tone deaf in every way (but then just look at their Harley Quinn contest from recent weeks…tasteless isn’t the word).

    Amazes me that they quite comfortably assume their readership are silly little children who cannot handle actual r/ships (and are misogynistic and pathetic basement dwellers in general).

  2. Aren’t most marriages unhappy and end in divorce anyway? Let her have a marriage, even if it has to be a bad marriage.

  3. Sorry, that one just doesn’t wash. Superman and Lois Lane got married in the previous DC continuity, as were the Flash and Iris West, Green Arrow and Black Canary etc. Granted, protagonists within the Batman series don’t have tidy love lives (Batman isn’t gay, he’s a straight fetishist-NB Catwoman? Robin/Dick Grayson was enamoured of Starfire/Koriand’r, which technically made him a xenophile (alien) sex pervert), but why don’t Kate and Maggie deserve some happiness together?

  4. Used car salesman style, PR tactic noted.

  5. They could just have the marriage and let her gay lover die after a while.

    It’s been done before :3

    Proof as to why those men in tight spandex never have any crotch bulges – there’s nothing there!

  7. What a bunch of BS. Other heroes have had various personal things happen to them. If they weren’t prepared for this possibility they shouldn’t have decided to re-introduce the character as a lesbian.

  8. DC could take a hint from the way Marjorie Liu is handling the relationship between Northstar and Kyle Jinadu in Astonishing X-Men: Happy? Ultimately, maybe, but there are lots of problems and knotty parts to the relationship that she has used to drive the story, which is ultimately more interesting because of the depth of the characters.
