    Default DC Pride Anthology

    PRIDE INTRODUCTION

    The DC Universe is visually represented as a kaleidoscope of color, encompassing the courage, empathy, strength, and passion that’s left an indelible mark on DC’s storytelling for the past 85+ years. DC’s comic books call to mind the world around us, which makes the characters and their adventures equal parts entertaining, inspiring, and meaningful to audiences of every generation across the globe. These may be Superheroes and super-villains, but the more you get to know them, the more you realize they can’t be boxed in by those binary labels. Like all of us, there’s a humanity present, which includes perfections, faults, successes, failures, doubt, pride, and everything in between. We welcome everyone to find and celebrate their places in the ever-expanding DC Universe! #DCPride

    Never heard of Extraño - would've thought that was Doctor Strange if I saw that panel without context.

    I see we have a story set in Future State and another set in the Arrowverse. Is that guy with Aqualad a new hero named Butterfly by any chance? Just look at the top he's wearing.

    Love what I'm seeing. Can't wait to read this. Nice to see Andy & Jess together again. They were the best to come out of FS: JL, imo.

    I would've also mistaken Extraño for Doctor Strange.

    Yeah that is very dr.strange-esque, right down to the mustache and cape. Also the guy with Kaldur kind of reminds me of Flex Mentallo.

    Either way this looks really good, has a lot of characters that I like and with a decent crop of creative teams on it as well.

    He's the Big Two's first obviously gay character from the 80's (his sexuality wasn't explicitly mentioned but he was a flaming caricature who called himself "Auntie" and then got AIDS from a vampire and died).



    Recently, Steve Orlando rebooted him and made into a suave, Doctor Strange type in one of the Apollo and Midnighter or Midnight solo minis.

    Extrano was the first openly gay DC superhero: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extra%C3%B1o

    Orlando re-introduced him into modern continuity in the Midnighter and Apollo miniseries a few years back:

    No, it's a new character. Sina Grace confirmed it in an interview a couple of weeks ago.
