Phil Jimenez Talks Gay Comics

Wonder Woman artist Phil Jimenez recently sat down with The Ansible and talked about his career in comics. In this segement, Jimenez discusses the current state of gay characters, and where he'd like to see LGBT heroes go:

One of the things I would love to see is a minority super-hero have a white boyfriend. Or, two minority super-heroes together as a couple and validate that kind of relationship…My hope is that as these couples start coming out, particularly with gay male couples, not necessarily lesbian couples, is that we see the different permutations that defy the alpha typing that we get in the expectation of modern super-hero comics.
