Stan Lee, creator of Marvel Comics, says he’s created a comic about the world’s first gay superhero, the Daily Telegraph is reporting.

The character — Thom Creed, a high school basketball player learning to deal with his sexual orientation and his newfound powers — was adapted by Lee from the Perry Moore novel “Hero.” Thom will debut in an hour-long Showtime special.


You mean, all this time, all those other superheroes —  with the colorful Spandex outfits and the long flowing capes — none of them was gay?
