Emailing DC. Comics, Marvel & Disney

Okay, so when I heard that DC Comics were going to have a same sex superhero couple get married I KNEW OMM was going to have a hissy fit! So when I got the email today I was far from surprised. Personally, I've been a reader since I was a child! I mean, maybe it's just me, but is there really anyone cooler than Batman? Yeah, I don't think so! And seriously, anyone who's been reading comics as long as I have already knew there were homosexuals in their ranks... And don't get me started on the rather uneven Gay to Straight ratio at just about ANY Comi-Con...  So yeah, this idea that DC showing support for the LGBT community is somehow offensive to the majority of their readers completely blows my mind!

Anyways, here, as always, is a copy of the letter OMM is attempting to harass DC and Disney with - Please try to keep your laughter to a minimum, I think she's serious!
As a parent and a member of, I am extremely disappointed that you would use a children's superhero character to help endorse same-sex marriage and glorify the homosexual lifestyle. It is disgusting that your company would participate in introducing sexual orientation to children when they are not equipped to understand what sexual preferences involve.

Unfortunately, children are now being exposed to same-sex marriage and the gay lifestyle choice in your comic books. Gay adults do not need superheroes as role models. Your company is damaging impressionable young minds by placing these gay characters on pedestals in a positive light. As a Christian, I know that homosexuality is a sin. The Bible states this clearly in Romans 1:26-27.

A comic book is the last place a parent would expect to be confronted with questions from their children on topics that are too complicated for them to understand. Issues of this nature are being introduced too early and too soon, which is extremely unnecessary.

Please do the right thing and reverse your decision to have sexual orientation displayed to young readers. My decision to support your company and parent company depends on it.

I look forward to hearing from you regarding my concern.
Seriously, this is one of the WORST letters I've seen from them. And honestly, I could easily pick apart nearly every sentience of this letter, but then we would be here all night.  So, I'm going to skip that part and go right in to sharing my own email!  Here's what I sent in, in place of that malarkey!
As a parent and a life long reader of your comics! I can not possibly express the level of excitement I have in me when it comes to your most recent comic book! Superheros have long been the role models of children (young and old) and your choice to not only show support for the LGBT community, but to support marriage equality can only encourage future generations to embrace equality for all!

Additionally, your choice to portray homosexuality as "normal" and "accepted" in the superhero world will go a long way to help those children in same sex families feel more secure and proud of their own families. Many of these children face ridicule and bullying over their families makeup and need the support of their heroes to help them understand the issue is NOT with them or their family, but with those who are making them a target. It also may help those targeting them to be more accepting, which is a huge step forward!

But ultimately, the best part is that children and teens struggling with their own sexuality will now have a hero (or a hero couple) all their own. We have long been a society where we tailor our heroes, characters and even toys to reflect the personality and appearance of the children or families purchasing them. It's about time homosexual, bisexual and transsexual persons were given the same as everyone else!

Comic books have long been an escape for the "different" kids and teens, a place where they can be all they want to be and a place where they can be powerful. FINALLY, you are giving that same power to those kids who are struggling with sexuality related issues - be those issues related to their own sexuality, that of their loved ones or even teachings of their family, friends or religion against an LGBT lifestyle.

I am proud to say that I am, and have been for many years, a reader of your comics! As a child and a teen I was one of those "lost" kids who needed to escape life. I found solace in fantasizing about a world where justice was a reality and where I could be a powerful hero-woman! I only wish I had had such support when facing my own sexuality!

I do, however, understand that you have most recently become a target of a Hate Group which is trying to harass you in to removing the subject of sexuality from your latest issue. I beg of you to continue to support the LGBT community, and marriage equality. Your readers - young and old - deserve it!

I look forward to hearing from you regarding my concern.
As always I encourage all of you to send in your own emails, letters and phone calls in order to show support for this company and their support of  equality and the LGBT community! Unfortunately OMM has not provided any contact information for Disney or DC. So if you wish to do this you will either need to find such contact information or go through OMM's email system (as I have done) to do so. If, and when, I get my hands on such contact information I will share it here, but until then, their system does forward properly so there is no harm in using it!

OMM vs. DC Comics, Marvel Superheros and even Disney (5/24/12)

DC Comics AND Marvel Superheroes Come Out of the Closet

Part 1: DC Comics recently announced one of their most popular, but as of yet unnamed, prominent characters will soon be coming out of the closet. DC Comics, owned by Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, has decided that one of their beloved superheroes will be homosexual. Who will they choose; Batman, Superman, Flash, Green Lantern, Plastic Man, or another one of their characters that children look up to?

Last year, DC Comics Co-publisher Dan DiDio said that the company would not change the sexual orientation of an existing superhero and would bring in a new one altogether. Parents may have been able to avoid a new character since it would not be one many children have grown to admire. DiDio has changed his mind and will not be introducing a brand new character. They will feature an existing character who was previously assumed to be straight, will now become openly gay. Senior VP Sales Bob Wayne said DiDio's view 'had evolved', comparing the shift to Barack Obama's recent endorsement of same-sex marriage, according to a report. DiDio did not specify which character would 'come out' or in which issue it would be featured. It will likely be a June issue during LBGT month, joining lesbian character Batwoman.

Part 2: And to make matters more shocking, Marvel, now owned by Disney, followed DC Comics' announcement with a surprise of their own. Northstar, Marvel's first openly gay hero, is going to tie the knot with his boyfriend in the current issue of "Astonishing X-Men." This is the first same-sex wedding in a superhero comic book.

In "Astonishing X-Men" #50, which hit comic shop shelves Wednesday, Northstar proposes to his boyfriend, Kyle, a fellow snow sports enthusiast who possesses no superpowers. The couple will seal the deal in issue #51, slated for a June 20 release.

"The story of Northstar and Kyle is universal, and at the core of everything I write: a powerful love between two people who have to fight for it against all odds," said X-Men comic writer Marjorie Liu in a statement.
Children desire to be just like superheroes. Children mimic superhero actions and even dress up in costumes to resemble these characters as much as possible. Can you imagine little boys saying, "I want a boyfriend or husband like X-Men?"

This is ridiculous! Why do adult gay men need comic superheroes as role models? They don't but do want to indoctrate impressionable young minds by placing these gay characters on pedestals in a positive light. These companies are heavily influencing our youth by using children's superheroes to desensitize and brainwash them in thinking that a gay lifestyle choice is normal and desirable. As Christians, we know that homosexuality is a sin (Romans 1:26-27).

Unfortunately, children are now being exposed to homosexuality at an early age. Comic books would be one of the last places a parent would expect their child to be confronted with homosexual topics that are too complicated for them to understand. Children do not know what straight, homosexual, or coming out of the closet even means, but DC Comics and Marvel are using superheroes to confuse them on this topic to raise questions and awareness of an alternative lifestyle choice. These companies are prompting a premature discussion on sexual orientation.

Northstar's wedding will be the first same-sex wedding in the world of mainstream superhero comics, but not the first gay comic books character. Earlier this year One Million Moms emailed Toys 'R' Us concerning the "Life With Archie" No. 16 with two gay characters getting hitched. Toys 'R' Us had the audacity to display "Archie- Just Married" at the front of the store by the checkout counters.


Please send DC Comics (Warner Bros. Entertainment Company) and Marvel (Disney) an email urging them to change and cancel all plans of homosexual superhero characters immediately. Ask them to do the right thing and reverse their decision to have sexual orientation displayed to readers.
