    First gay superhero is oooh-perman

    SPIDER-MAN creator Stan Lee is to unveil the world’s first gay superhero.

    High school basketball star Thom Creed hides his developing superpowers along with his sexuality.
    Former Marvel Comics boss Stan, 86 — who also created the Hulk and the X-Men — will unleash the character in an hour-long TV drama being shot in the US. If it’s a hit there it will cross to the UK.
    TV execs hope it will rival the huge success of shows likes Heroes.

    Lee developed the idea of a gay character from the award-winning novel Hero by Perry Moore. A TV insider said: “It was only a matter of time before we had our first gay superhero. And if there is one man who can make him a success it is Stan Lee. “There’s a real buzz among comic book fans.”

    Sandman is hardly the superhero type of comic, but Neil Gaiman had gay and ambiguous characters back in the 90s. The personification of Desire can even change genders.

    Marvel also gave one of their cowboy characters a gay makeover in 2003 (yeah thats a punch line waiting to happen)

    A controversial[citation needed] 2003 limited series from Marvel's MAX imprint, the five-issue Rawhide Kid (the story itself titled "Slap Leather"), revealed him to be a homosexual. The series was labeled "Parental Advisory Explicit Content", and the story was written by Ron Zimmerman and veteran John Severin. Sales for the book were low although it was surrounded by a great deal of publicity for the orientation of the character.

    Nope. John Byrne had intended to make one of the characters in Alpha Flight gay from the start of the series...

    On his website's message board, comic book writer and artist John Byrne said that, while planning the Alpha Flight series that was launched in 1983, the characters had little to no depth at the time, and so he decided to flesh them out.

    "One of the things that popped immediately into my head was to make one of them gay," Byrne stated. "I had recently read an article in Scientific American on what was then (the early 80s) fairly radical new thinking on just what processes caused a person to be homosexual, and the evidence was pointing increasingly to it being genetic and not environmental factors. So, I thought, it seemed like it was time for a gay superhero, and since I was being 'forced' to make Alpha Flight a real series, I might as well make one of them gay." Byrne went through the cast members deciding which character would be an appropriate choice. "I settled on Jean-Paul, and the moment I did I realized it was already there. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I must have been considering making him gay before I 'decided' to do so. Of course, the temper of the times, the Powers That Were and, naturally, the Comics Code would not let me come right out and state that Jean-Paul was homosexual, but I managed to 'get the word out' even with those barriers."

    Northstar came out of the closet in 1992 in issue 106 of Alpha Flight....

    In Alpha Flight #106, published in 1992, some years after Shooter had left Marvel, writer Scott Lobdell was finally given permission to allow Northstar to utter the words "I am gay". The event generated some publicity in the mainstream press and Alpha Flight #106 sold out in a week, despite the fact that the series was not a very popular title. Shortly before Northstar admitted he was gay, he was voted Canada's most eligible bachelor, in the Alpha Flight series.
