The Ray is back in the DC Universe and will be joining the Justice League of America. This one-shot issue serves as a new origin and a coming out story for the Ray, also known as Raymond Terrill. Grant Morrison re-envisioned the character as being a gay man in the Multiversity story and this translated over into the main DC Universe. Raymond has been absent mostly from the DC Universe in the past couple of years. This issue has writer Steve Orlando re-telling a great coming of age superhero story that keeps many of his basic roots from the former DC Universe while also re-imagining other aspects. Artist Stephen Byrne illustrates each panel great with an almost cartoon vibe coming from it. Great issue and spectacular way to usher in a character that will be deservedly part of a heroic superhero team in the DC Universe.

I have researched this a bit but I do not know when we first saw a man on man gay kiss in mainstream comic books. Women have been kissing each other since forever apparently, but man on man is a bit more rare. We have probably seen some comical kisses between male characters like when Bugs Bunny constantly kissed his male enemies in any Looney Tunes cartoon. But when did we get our first actual romantic kiss between two men?


Wolverine and Hercules first kissed in Marvel’s 2013’s X-Treme X-Men #10. But that could not have been the first kiss in mainstream comics, right?


Before Logan and the son of Zeus kissed, Shatterstar and Rictor locked lips in X-Factor #45 in 2009. Technically both are bisexual or pansexual, but it counts as a nice romantic kiss between two male characters that had been hinted at being involved with each other all the way back to the 1990s.


You probably already know about Hulkling and Wiccan being a couple. They are arguably one of the most famous comic book couples of all time. But did you know they were together and published from 2009 to 2013 before readers got to see them kiss in 2012’s Young Avengers: The Children’s Crusade #9?


Midnighter and Apollo are one of DC Comic’s most famous couples- gay or straight. They were originally meant as badass re-interpretations of Batman and Superman who do not have the same moral implications as their source material. But they have since then changed to become their own unique characters. They were originally introduced back in 1998’s Stormwatch #4.


Bloke kissed his unnamed boyfriend in X-Force #118. This was way back in 2001. That may not seem like a big deal, but not a lot happened in that year with gay comic books at all. Unfortunately this was a really unmemorable series. I had to go back and read this series and I personally did not like this interpretation of X-Force and its art. But it did count as two men that were kissing.


I do not know if Image’s Savage Dragon #49 counts or not. I have always thought of Image as being the 3rd mainstream comic book universe. This issue was in May 1998 and the issue featured a character known as Super-Tough kissing his former sidekick Young-Tough. They locked lips after being separated for years. The writer is Erik Larson and he made it seem as though this was no big deal at the time. I mean wow, in 1998 that must have been a huge deal.


Was there a kiss that happened before this? Poor Kevin was introduced into Archie Comics back in 2010 and made out to be openly gay but did not get to kiss his boyfriend until 2013. It seems unfortunate that gay men get the short end of the stick in the comic verses everywhere. But it is our fate. Was there a gay man on man kiss that I am unaware of? Let me know. I cannot find more that has happened before that date. My comic book knowledge is limited, so I am not sure.

USAvengers #1 – Another #1 from Marvel It is nice to see the New Mutants together briefly and I always love Red Hulk. But stop with the number #1’s.
Batman #14 – Catwoman and Batman have one last night together before she has to be re-incarcerated. They make it a great last night.
NIghtwing #12 – Dick continues to establish himself in Bloodhaven with Orca making an appearance.
Sam Wilson Captain America #17 – Rage and the new Falcon make their team dynamics known.

It’s comic book day! So many great comics came out today. I could not get to all of them, but here’s what I did get to read.
Star Wars #26 – A back story with Yoda is always awesome!
Civil War II #8 – The Conclusion to this Marvel epic title is finally finished.
Hulk #1 – Jennifer Walters is taking the title of the Hulk after the death of her cousin Bruce Banner in the Civil War II story.
Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corp #11 – Hal is finally going to meet up with the rest of the Green Lantern Corp after Larfleeze has captured all of them.
Spider-Man #11 – Miles Morales dad is an agent of SHIELD and is probably going to go back into action.
Wonder Woman #13 – Diana is not taking her backstory being fake very well. She has gone into a crazy state that will affect her next storyline.
Batman Beyond #3 – Terry is under cover as a Joker Gang member, but we discover something very huge in the conclusion of this issue.
Detective Comics #947 – We get a glimpse of what happened to Tim Drake. Not much, but I’ll take it! We need a return of this character back to the DC Universe.

Flash #12 – Barry and Wally are stuck in the Shadowlands dimension and have to work together to free Iris and escape.
Action Comics #969 – Lex Luthor has been captured by two intergalactic saviors that fear that Lex will kill millions in the future. Which is probably true. Superman has to face a moral dilemma to save him or leave him to his fate.
Spider-Man #10 – Miles Morales has been hiding from Captain Marvel since the revelation that he may be Captain America’s killer in an Inhuman vision. Now he makes his presence known.
Wonder Woman #12 – Princess Diana has more backstory told on her 1st year being in man’s world. Her connection to Ares is going to be explored as is her romance with Steve Trevor.
Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corp #10 – Hal is dead and the Corp is captured and shrunken in a city bottle.
Inhumans vs. X-Men #1 – The first strike has been cast and the mutants are fighting to destroy the terrigen cloud that has killed many mutants in the Marvel Universe.
Still no word on Tim Drake while he is incarceration by Mr. Oz in Detective Comics #946…so frustrating. We keep getting flashbacks and holograms. That sucks.
