With her short blond locks covered by a long, dark wig, the talk show host transformed herself into Amal Alamuddin.

'I like Halloween because it’s the one time of year you can dress up however you want, and pretend you’re someone you’d never be in real life. For me, that’s married to a man,' she told her audience.

It features the offspring of the world's most famous DC Comics superheroes (Chris Kent, for example, the foster son of Clark Kent, Superman).

The late, great Joan Rivers is dead. Let her laugh go on forever.

But before the 81-year-old died, she revealed exactly how she wished she would pass.

In her book, 'I Hate Everyone...Starting With Me', the way she spoke about her death was hilarious.

Holy smokes! Batman, one of the campest and homoerotic characters from superhero history, is 75 years old

Holy homosexuality! Batman is 75 years old.

And with the anniversary, what better way than to point out the reasons why many consider the character to be the gayest straight superhero in existence?

The ‘gay’ interpretation goes all the way back to 1954, when a psychiatrist claimed that the comic books were ‘homosexual fantasies’.

The 1995 feature film Batman Forever, and especially its 1997 sequel Batman & Robin, both helmed by openly gay director Joel Schumacher, attracted attention for the homoerotic innuendos.
