The world is changing and why shouldn't comics change with it, right? On today's show, we discuss sexual identity amongst superheroes and other comic book characters. We ask the questions: Who were some of the first heroes in comics history rumored to be gay or bisexual?

And have creators in comics generally done a good job of handling these themes over the last 20 years?
