Stan Lee's gay superhero

The Telegraph reports that Stan Lee - the creator of Spider-Man - has come up with a new character that is homosexual:

"Lee has reportedly created a character called Thom Creed, a high-school basketball player who is forced to hide his sexuality as well as his superpowers. It is not known what kind of powers Creed will display. Lee, the former head of Marvel Comics - who also created the Hulk and the X-Men - will unveil Creed in an hour-long television special made in the US. If he proves popular with audiences, the programme will be shown in Britain. Lee developed the idea of a gay character from the award-winning novel Hero by Perry Moore, the Sun reports. A television industry source told the paper: “It was only a matter of time before we had our first gay superhero. And if there is one man who can make him a success it is Stan Lee. “There’s a real buzz among comic book fans.”"

Don't you just love it that our liberal societies have advanced so far that homosexuality is now considered a selling-point for public consumption of a product?

Here is a review of Moore's book.
