“Let me take you under my cape boy wonder, as we embark on our gayest adventures together.” might be a popular quote from the latest batman figure. This figure is a New Rainbow Batman Doll. Yes Alfred, there is a gay batman. DC Comics appears to be giving a subtle thumbs up to those of us in the gay community who love our super heros. This new line of rainbow colored Batman action figures are sure to fly out of the store. DC Comics took some time and did a poll to see what the fans would say. They ask questions relating to he colors and offered a variety of characters. People picked what I am calling gay batman.
In the comic series of 1957, the Caped Crusader, (oh I love that term, it makes me tingle!) wore the multi-hued capes to protect an injured Robin. The thinking was that if he wore a different colored costume every night, the criminals would be shocked and they would leave Robin alone. Come on guys, we all know that gay batman wanted to keep Robin all to himself, who wouldn’t right? The one costume that is important to the storyline was a multi-colored blend suit, it looked like Batman wrapped in rainbows. Who knows, maybe that was just a little too gay for the collection.
It looks like this collection is going to sell or about $70. I don’t care, I’m going to buy one for me and one for my boyfriend too. It’s well worth the cost. Hey, we don’t have to wonder anymore if Batman and boy wonder are or are not gay. We can say, without a doubt, Batman is gay. Humm…what about Robin? I’ll get back to you on that one.
