Since debuting in 1939, Batman has gone through his gayish phases.
During the 1950s morality campaign against comic books, a prominent psychologist and author decried “the subtle atmosphere of homoeroticism which pervades the adventures of the mature Batman and his young friend Robin."
The 1960s TV show was a camp riot, including the dynamic duo's deliciously flamboyant costumes...
...And the ultra-queeny villians.
Gay director Joel Schumacher was responsible for two of the 1990s Batman films, including Batman Forever, starring Val Kilmer and Chris O'Donnell in extremely body-defining attire.
The latest addition to the superhero series, The Dark Knight, is pretty devoid of gayness… Unless you count the fact that Heath Ledger (who plays the Joker) was best known previously for his role of a queer cowboy in Brokeback Mountain.
Straights rule Gotham now. But not forever.
Gay Batman will rise again!
