Homo Superior.

Daniel Radosh

Over at the American Enterprise, my čbergeek pal Todd Seavey takes the Rawhide Kid hype down a peg, and delves into the real history and significance of gay comic book heroes: "The paranoid conservative response might be to interpret all this as propaganda for an impending global conquest by gay eugenicists, but Morrison appears to intend it as a metaphor for humanity's capacity for improvement and transformation." In two parts, here and here.

Even cooler—if you measure cool, as I do, in the Bizarro-Earth fashion—Todd also wrote the new issue of Justice League Adventures, on sale now at your favorite comics emporium.
