Re: the Gay Marriage. THERE IS NO MARRIAGE. Gay or Otherwise. DC wants diverse and interesting characters but just because they are gay doesn't mean all your gay characters need to get married. Are all of your gay friends trying to get married? How about all your straight friends?
DC sees that as making a character less interesting. Editorial is clearly being more hands on.
Editorial is being hands on with hands not connected to the same brain. The Batwoman team has been clear about plans for over a year- plans that were approved, then changed last minute, and they don't want to work like that anymore- like pretty much everyone who's left.
On marriage (which remember, isn't really the issue)- coming out like they have and issuing a blanket statement seems incredibly stupid. I think there are cases to be made that Superman or Spider-man are better off unmarried (I don't agree with all of those cases, but you can make them fairly convincingly), but not every character is Spider-man or Superman. If every newer character had to follow the same formula, we wouldn't have gotten most of the good comics we have (including Spider-man and the rest of the early Marvel U, who were popular because they were different)
