    Jason really is carrying these anthologies. Give him a book DC enough already. I don't like wasting money on characters I don't care about just so i can follow the one character I like

    Nope, spoilers:
    The person Grifter is talking to *sent* Zealot to Fox's location but is not Zealot herself. It is likely Ladytron and apparently Void is there, too, because of the teleportation.

    Jason gets really used a lot to prop up all kinds of book (Future State: Gotham, Batman Adventures Coninues, DCeased Unkilleables, even White Knight) unfortunately his treatment in those books usually leave a lot to be desired.

    Well, FS has ended up being allright, even when the story itself is so-so.
    And White Knight has a lot of potential now that he's appeared in the present and he clearly has a different story behind than the usual one he has.

    He was in Bombshells too, and he was nicely done there.
    Always changing; ever the same.

    This is my Tumblr. Sometimes I post stuff there.

    So this is book made not only Grifter bisexual(unless he's joking about how hot Superman is) but in the same issue, Tim Drake is on his way of being Bi too?

    Tim being Bi is only speculation at this point.

    But the series was promoted as lead by him and Deathstroke, and I didn't really felt like this, at least in issue 2 and 3.

    Ultimately it doesn't matter in a superhero context if a character is straight/gay/bi. Is it relevant to the story? I don't care about romance in a superhero world when there are enough novels and movies or shows out there. Is it about the reader being represented? I don't need to see myself on the page. Is it about a publisher being able to say we value all our readers... translate to we want money from everyone.

    I believe its more about adding depth to the character. Not just romance, but other non-superhero stuff that they do.

    For example; DBZ is well known for its fights, which often keep escalating until the penultimate part of the arc. However, its more slice of life episodes, and even mini-arcs, are usually greatly enjoyed. Because it gives the viewers/readers a glimpse of these characters when not leveling landscapes in big battles.

    So you might not want those things, and that's certainly fine but you realize others might right?

    Why not create a new character that's bi then? Why use a pre-existing one? Name recognition. Brand. It sells more. I'm fine with adding depth but it doesn't matter in the long run (see Batwoman's marriage). If it would lead to better stories why not make Bruce gay? The backlash. The uproar. Its just about sales and another gimmick and I hate that its being used as look at us we're tolerant and promote progress when its just marketing and shallow headlines. Yes, others might enjoy it nonetheless.
