Okay, the overwhelming winners in our Gayest Comic Book Couple Poll are Booster Gold and Blue Beetle.
I respect this, but I think it just goes to show one thing: most Absorbascon readers don't know many gay couples!
Hey, I'm just as willing as the next guy to read gay subtext into comic book where it doesn't belong. But despite the closeness of their friendship, Blue and Gold had all the classic earmarks of straight buddies encouraging each other in adolescent irresponsibility and covering each other backs (um, so to speak).
And what a classic pairing they were! A shallow BMOC desperate to hide his feelings of loneliness and mental inadequacy and a science nerd who wanted to hang out with the BMOCs. They had zero problems admitting and expressing their fondness for one another, which smells much more like guys comfortable with their heterosexuality than guys struggling with their homosexuality.
Catman and Deadshot? Now THOSE are closet cases...
