The unspoken homoeroticism of superhero comics in the 20th century amuses me to no end.

I mean, how did we not notice (left, and lovingly plundered from Comic Vine)?

Many others have plumbed the depths of superheroes who are definitely not gay before me.

Wolverine’s penchant for sausage… Wonder Woman’s binding games… and Nick Fury. Let’s just note, without passing judgment on the previous link, that Nick’s back is turned to the bikini-clad ladies as he checks out the Speedo-clad Tony Stark whilst fingering his cigar.

Nope. Not gay at all.

Page Seven Notes:

  • Spanx and a thong? There’s got to be a cover band name in there somewhere.
  • Speaking of Spanx and a thong, exactly how do so many superheroes avoid those unsightly lines under their circulation-defying tights? Could they be wearing thongs? Boy shorts? Please tell me they’re not going commando.
