Superman's gay following

Stephen Colbert, on Comedy Central’s “Colbert Report,” had a bit the other night on threats to his heterosexuality. He touched on Superman’s gay appeal - which was detailed in a recent issue of the Advocate, a prominent gay magazine - along with DC’s new Batwoman, who is s lesbian. DC and Warner Bros. have to be happy about all the media attention heaped on Batwoman. The Superman connection? Maybe not so much. “At issue now is whether that gay vibe will broaden the ‘Superman Returns' audience, or limit it,” a recent Los Angeles Times story states. For all those pundits who are now asking, “Is Superman gay?” Lois Lane can set them straight, no pun intended.
