Batwoman is a lesbian

It is not uncommon for changes to take place in the world of comic books, with little notice from the non-reading public. Spider-Man gets a new costume. The Hulk turns gray. Batman gets his back broken, gives up his job, then wins it back. It's no big thing. But a recent storyline change got the attention of the New York Times:

The New York Times reports, diversity in the $500 million comic book business includes some new heroes with familiar names.

There's a new Batwoman, who now will be a lesbian socialite by night and a crime fighter later at night. And Blue Beetle, who's been changed into a Mexican teenager with a magical scarab.

Over at Marvel Comics, Black Panther, king of the fictional African nation of Wakanda, will marry Storm, the weather-controlling mutant and X-Man. Luke Cage, a black street fighter who married his white girlfriend in April, plays a key role in "New Avengers."

"Lets take the Bat-Cycle!"
