Let me get this straight: in some conference room, Stan Lee said, "After the success of Heroes, how do we make Spandex wearing, sharp tongued strong men relevant to modern culture? Let's make him a queer!"
Note: this is not the proposed character
What do you think the kids name should be? I'm putting money on the Flamer. Or Flame-Man. Or Steroid Queen.
Oh, and despite the statement that it will be the first gay superhero, there have been lots lots lots more... including trannies and ex-gays, too!!! But, with names like Hulkling, Freedom Ring, Attractive Lad, Captain Power, and Wanda Mann... I can understand why they never exactly made it big.
