Doug's Dozen: 12 Proposed Gay Superheroes

News item:

DC Comics just announced that one of their superheroes, Green Lantern, will come out as gay.

C'mon, DC! Have some guts! Gay people have been fighting to achieve civil rights for decades, and now that it's within their grasp, you want to give them a hand-me-down?

Create an original gay superhero... one who owns being gay!

I have a few suggestions:
