Who was the first gay DC superhero? Extraño is a superhero magician appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Created by writer Steve Englehart and artist Joe Staton, he first appeared in Millennium #2 (January 1988). Extraño is noted for being the first openly gay superhero in DC Comics.
Who are the gay superheroes? In the DC Comics universe, Batwoman is an out lesbian, Catwoman has been presented as bisexual and antiheroes Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy have been portrayed as romantic partners. “It becomes uncouth for male characters to explore their sexuality because of what it may mean for the male readers,” Fitzmartin said.
What Batman character is gay? Gay. Gay male characters in Batman comics include Harper Row’s brother Cullen and the superhero Midnighter. Midnighter originated as an alternative universe analogue of Batman in comics published by WildStorm, but became part of the mainstream DC Universe in September 2011 as a result of The New 52.
Which DC characters are gay? I remember when Batwoman became the company’s first gay character to headline a book in 2009, and Midnighter became DC’s first solo series for a gay man in 2015, and the long stretch of the 2010s when Wonder Woman, and Harley Quinn, and Poison Ivy, and John Constantine were finally allowed to be irrevocably queer.
