    It's mentioned at the beginning of the story that Steph & Tim have broken up for some unknown reasons... Then Tim is leaving to see an old friend (Bernard).

    Shout out to this panel from the story "Whom Gods Destroy". Best Wonder Woman kiss ever (although technically it's Lois Lane as Wonder Woman kissing the goddess Artemis)

    Thank you. Do you have an image if this panel/page that's not embedded into CBR? I can't really read it because CBR distorts images when it embeds them into their own server.

    EDIT: I think I found them.

    I think this BC article is an even better answer for your request

    Thanks!

    So, gotta wait until next month to see how this storyline ends? I also ponder what BC does: will they continue the teasing, or will whatever they're teasing finally come into actualization?

    There's a Midnighter back-up story in Action Comics currently going on.
    There's Ghostmaker in the Batman comics nowadays.
    Also, Midnighter & Apollo will appear in the Superman & the Authority mini.

    But yeah, currently there's not so much emphasis on their romantic life.
    Hippolyta and Philippus are pretty open in the Wonder Woman back-ups. Though they don't get that much to do.

    I could also see Nubia being an LGBTQ+ character, and even if Nubia herself isn't, the Amazons definitely are/will be in her book. One of the writers, Stephanie Williams, already mentioned she wants to make clear Themyscira is open to all women, which includes trans women. Philippus will also be part of the book.

    It's a shame that Hippolyta in JL is just genericwarriorwoman#2.

    I hope the Renee Montoya story DC teased as part of the anthology is truly in the making.

    If that's not queerbaiting then happy for Tim's LGBTQIA+ fans but this kind of feels like a compromise on DC's part to avoid canonizing Dick being on the spectrum.

    Were they ever going to reveal Dick as LGBT?
    I mean, all the Robins feel kind of gay to me, but I know we can't have them all lol
    I do hope they have the stones to have Tim be openly gay or bi and not just do this kind of stuff where it's obvious he is but they won't say it. In 2021 we can do better than that.
    Now I'm wondering if they'll actually let Conner come out and give us the SuperBat ship we deserve.

    I got extremely confused when the Nightwing Pride variant cover was one of the first to be revealed, thinking Dick being bi was already confirmed and I somehow missed it. DC knows extremely well what they are doing and it's insulting if they don't plan to commit to it.

    I understood the Pride variants were just variant covers. Superman did one too.
    I think it would be easy to imagine Jason in a poly group with Roy and Artemis.

    Lol

    I think Dick will never be other than heterosexual. Not a problem, just saying...
    Damian - sometimes he seems asexual (maybe hetero-romantic) to me... he'd be a perfect candidate for representing aces
    Jason - maybe bisexual, polyamorous?

    Indeed. And it's a shame that Diana's bisexuality isn't emphasized. Ok, I got it, bisexual means that she can be attracted to Steve Trevor and other men.
    Maybe... she could live in a poly relationship with Steve and her new beau, Siegfried

    Damien is pretty young still, so it's not surprising he's not showing attraction to anyone yet. It's easy to see that he could be ace.
    I read Jason as bi/pan and poly.
    I don't expect Dick to be other than heterosexual but it wouldn't be a big stretch to see him as bi if DC had the stones to do it.
    But really, just give me one Robin and one Superboy, that's all I ask.

    Yeah, but Clark wasn't doing THIS on his Pride cover.


    The intent is clearly to cater to the queer gaze and collect 'em monies, without actually committing to anything.

    welcome to capitalism baby!
    btw it's not just about the queer gaze, it's also about the female gaze like the Grayson series
