Batman finally gets asked: ‘Are you gay?’

After 75 years of caped crusading, you would have thought someone would have asked Batman about his close-knit relationship with Robin.

But finally, in a new comics series, he answers the question that has been on everyone’s lips for three quarters of a century.

Multiversity: The Just #1, by Grant Morrison and Ben Oliver, was released on 22 October.

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

It takes place in a world where superheroes are not necessary anymore, and are more celebrities who are famous for being famous.

Batman’s son Damian Wayne, who has taken on his father’s identity, gets asked the question by Alexis Luthor, a comic book obsessive and daughter of evil arch enemy Lex.
