* The very early days of TheFifties saw the creation of ''School-Day Romances'' (later renamed ''Popular Teen-agers''), a romcom comic series. These days it's mostly remembered for one of their lead couples, who went by the incredible names of... Toni Gay and Butch Dykeman. (Those words were already changing to mean what most people today think of at the time, but it was really recent.)

** This example also shows up in a contemporary ''Franchise/{{Spider-Man}}'' comic--after Spider-Man embarrasses himself by breaking up an apparently villainous act by the Human Torch that turns out to be YouJustRuinedTheShot, a bystander comments "I guess anyone can pull a boner".

* Similarly, Jim Wilson in 1972's ''Hulk #157'', thinking about Maj. Glenn Talbot: "The Major isn't a ''bad'' guy... just so awfully ''straight'', it makes your ''backbone'' ache!". For extra fun, Wilson would come out about 20 years later, in the PeterDavid run.

** And because it seems there's not a single word on this page that hasn't appeared in at least one vintage ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' comic, here is: [[http://www.superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1292:qremember-this-leather-thong-it-still-has-your-teeth-marks-in-itq&catid=32:seduction-index&Itemid=36 Batman's leather thong]] .
** In [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=340:batmans-doing-his-best-to-sound-gay&catid=32:seduction-index&Itemid=36 one comic]], Batman is carrying Robin out of a hospital, saying "I've got news for you, Robin! Wait till you hear what Gordon has up his sleeve" and Robin is thinking "Batman's doing his best to sound gay. But I can tell his heart isn't in it!"
** A comic featuring the Joker set at Christmas ended with the Joker back in jail and receiving a mocking, rhyming Christmas card from the Dynamic Duo that ended with, "Accept these greetings gay/From Batman and from Robin."
** Then [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=318:real-men-wear-pink&catid=32:seduction-index&Itemid=36 there's that issue called "Rainbow Batman"]] which has Bats fitting a pink batsuit on the cover.

* Deliberately inverted in an issue of [[ComicBooks/TheAuthority Midnighter]]'s solo series, in a time travel arc. In the 40th century, EveryoneIsBi, so when the Midnighter says something about being gay, a character from that future says, "I don't understand. What does being happy have to do with sex?"

*** Also, the references to "coke". At the time it was widely used to refer to as a derivative of coal, but nowadays "coke" usually refers to either Coca-Cola or cocaine. The latter interpretation makes Haddock's shocked reaction to Tintin's question if their ship is carrying any coke look particularly hilarious.
