This week’s Batman #12 by Scott Snyder brings a new gay character to the Batverse, the teenage boy named Cullen Row. He has only appeared one issue, but he has already won my heart. He is so charismatic I can’t believe.
The story is not centered on the subject of homophobia and homophobic attacks, but they are a very strong element. Even though I was never a victim of a violent attack, I could totally relate to the situation and I did cry when he was found beaten by his sister, Harper.
I do hope he becomes an important character and I wouldn´t mind seeing him going through some empowering. Minorities DO need that.
