    It's going to be SHAZAM! Just the way they wrote his name looks gay.

    I hope one of his super powers is gaydar.

    I bet it'll be one of the female characters.

    They already have a gay female character -- Batwoman. And it's a pretty good comic. This has to be a dude. Shazam is prominent in the way the Browns are prominent. He's been irrelevant for decades, but has a great history. It will be perfect for him to be gay.

    Shazam would fit the Dumbledore mold.

    I heard Clark Kent was a real gent, if you know what I mean...

    Well, there is the Jim Nabors connection. Shazam makes sense.

    I always thought Green Arrow looked a little too swashbuckley.

    I imagine it wouldn't be Batman or Superman if only because it seems like those are their only two relevant characters these days. I doubt they have a trouble selling those issues.

    I think they'd be more likely to do it with a character who is struggling to sell copies.

    A pretty obvious direction, only for decades . . .
