I think we need to table the Living Lightning debate until his sexuality isn't the punchline of a dumb joke. Slott had a joke to tell and used an Avenger no one cared about. When a writer has a more serious storyline use for Miguel we'll see if he's gay or straight then.

You said it very well. Let's let a writer who really wants to develop Living Lightning as a character decide his orientation.
