Ever seen Ben Affleck in The Accountant? I think he had Aberger’s or Autism. Gave him laser focus in accounting, fighting and shooting. Made him scary driven perfectionist.
Christian Wolff is diagnosed with autism at Harbor Neuroscience as a child. His father refuses to let him stay over the summer, with this environment being better for his sensory processing disorder and instead believing that he must overcome the hardships of his condition. Chris’ overwhelmed mother abandons them. Fearing others will exploit Chris, his father, a US Army PSYOP officer, begins a brutal regimen of stoicism and martial-arts training for Chris and his younger brother, Braxton.
Sadly, this is getting out of hand. I don’t think these companies realise that all they’re doing is driving away people even potential newer younger fans. No-one wants this but they don’t seem to understand or realise that.
At the same time, who is still buying these comics? I think everyone is overreacting over this, DC has been tanking itself, or zerself, or theyself, for years now. It’s unoriginal, it isn’t brave and not even remotely shocking.
Let’s not forget that Superman, at times, did put a lot of emphasis on Clark and Lois’s relationship, they are just trying to do the same thing here, but they have no imagination.
I might add, that there’s a substantial portion of the gay population that is convinced that most straight men have suppressed homosexual desires and can be convinced into bisexuality. So there might be a bit of a hidden agenda there.
My point is, this is an unimaginative product, just don’t buy it and carry on.
BURBANK, CA—The brilliant and courageous writers at DC Comics have announced that Superman is now gay, and his pronouns are they/them as he is also non-binary. Now, instead of Kryptonite, he will be rendered completely powerless by anyone who addresses him using the wrong pronouns.
“I’ll finally defeat Superman! He’s such a liberal snowflake!” says right-wing transphobe Lex Luthor to reporters in the latest issue.
“NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!” cries gay Superman in response as he withers to the ground in shrieks of agony. “I’m non-binary! It should be ‘THEY is such a snowflake!’ EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!”
Writers confirmed that gay Superman will gay-save the world and gay-stop hate crimes with his gay superpowers. He will be completely impervious to Kryptonite but will be powerless against right-wing talk show hosts and trans-exclusionary radical feminist authors. First and foremost, he will be very, very gay.
“We are so proud to break new ground with this stunning, brave, totally expected, and culturally fashionable change to the Superman character,” said writer Tom Taylor. “We look forward to selling dozens and dozens of copies.”
