COMICS: Queer Themes We Want More Of

Batman and the Joker

DC, Marvel, Vertigo and Archie comics… each one has a growing history of LGBTI characters and storylines.

Wonder Woman has previously been revealed as queer. Hopefully the inevitable sequel to the current Wonder Woman blockbuster will show her with either a girlfriend or at least a reference to her previous female lovers.

So here are some LGBTI moments we would like to see on either the small or big screen.

1. Batman and the Joker

In Batman Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on a Serious Earth, the Joker appears to have a homoerotic interest in the Dark Knight and makes references to him wearing high heels and lipstick while subtly flirting with Batman.

Although the Joker did have a girlfriend in Harley Quinn, he has been on his own in recent years so an attraction to the Bat could be possible, especially if they adapt the comic into a movie or animated special.
