YouTuber YellowFlash summons DC to tease bisexual Batman as another ploy to hide poor sales

DC has done this with his friend Tim Drake, which has made national headlines. Then they go to the well again with the young son of his compatriot Superman, Jonathan, who takes over as his father. Now they go directly to the Dark Knight and tease him who will become part of the LGBTQ community.

And it’s not on another Earth or timeline, nor is this effort part of some passing the torch on to the next generation of Caped Crusaders. In issue number 8 of his book Batman: The Knight The miniseries, Chip Zdarsky, teases Bruce Wayne’s history change in the main continuity of his writing as bisexual.

Furthermore, it was suggested in a conversation with Dr. Captio, the supposedly smartest man in the world, that Bruce had a thing for the Ghost-Maker that ended in heartbreak.

“Lol DC Comics is about to confirm Bruce Wayne is bisexual now,” YellowFlash tweeted with a screenshot of the page. “Anton broke his heart, according to the following [week’s] cartoons!”

While it’s unclear what Dr. Captio is specifically referring to here, the issue, which was dropped on August 16, reveals that Captio is manipulating Bruce with fake photos of Alfred and Dana.

When he confronted Bruce, Captio explained, “I wanted to see. If you can’t deny your feelings, can you focus on them like a knife? And I’m in favor that it turns out… I was right.”

The excitement comes after Zdarsky and DC previously stirred up sexual tension between Batman and Ghost-Maker in Batman: Knight #5, The two of them nearly hugged before they were interrupted by former KGB agent Avery Oblonsky.

Whether it’s Tim Drake, Jonathan Kent or Alan Scott’s Green Lantern, the effort doesn’t boost sales in the long run. There is a bump, yes, but only to the trouble when the character appears – as was the case with Jon Kent in Superman: Son of Kal L.

Most of the DC books that broke the 50 bestsellers have to do with Batman, including the solo title Poison Ivy. black Adam It’s the only exception but the title barely breaks the list at the bottom.

This is a bad sign for DC’s business. As YellowFlash notes, half of their books don’t make the top 50 or barely chart which means they’re consistently selling less than 30,000 units and there’s no interest in these characters no matter how much the sales numbers are inflated with the manga.
