Quote:Well...It's already kind of a retcon, if the intention of Jon's creator, and whichever writer and editor were behind the Saturn Girl affair was to present a straight character. A retcon that retcons nothing, you might say.
It's not revising anything about Jon as a character, just adding a new layer to him. An unnecessary one, but a new one.
Quote:It'll be interesting to see if they ever allow him a physical relationship with a female ever again. If they DO, then fair enough, he's bisexual. But if they don't, then they can call him whatever they want until the cows come home but the reality is he's for all intents and purposes a gay man.
Do Bi's in real life suddenly become Gay if they marry a man? No one, that I know of, can change how their brain works. Either they are gay, bi, lesbian or straight. At the end of the day, that Bi is still Bi regardless if he chooses to predominantly be with a man. He can still watch a TV program and whistle every time a woman walks by with a bikini on. That isn't going to suddenly change. Same with Jon. He's bi and unless his relationship with Saturn Girl gets erased, he's going to remain that way.
It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
