I just saw this on Newsarama:http://blog.newsarama.com/2011/10/05/ca ... -possibly/
Over on her tumblr, Gail Simone has revealed two things for fans of her Secret Six run. Firstly, Catman was/is bisexual. Secondly, Gail has more Catman in her future, in some form. Somehow, I suspect that the former is going to be the thing that people are going to react to the most, but for me, the latter is the more exciting. Especially when she says this (emphasis mine):
"I don’t want to reveal the exact scene yet, but [Catman's sexuality] would become revealed to Deadshot through a set of circumstances. My first thought was Deadshot reacting in a bit of shock, which seemed to make sense going by Deadshot’s character. But then I thought about it, and I think it’s MORE his character that he knew or suspected and didn’t give a ****.
I can’t use the exact scene I had in mind, so I can at least reveal that bit. But the rest is still in play the next time I get to write the two of them together, which Dan has assured me, is very much on the table."
It took me awhile to warm up to Secret Six, because I am stupid, but this news makes me very, very happy. I’d eagerly pick up a Deadshot/Catman title, if that ended up happening (Although, really, the one I’d really want would be a Scandal series…).
