** 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?"

Added DiffLines:

*** 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.

* There are old ''[[TheBeano Beano]]'' comic strips called Little Dead-Eye Dick and Cocky Dick (Cock and Dick both being contemporary British slang for penis) . Also in an old Bash Street Kids strip Smiffy points at a stuffed lion which Danny has stuffed his head into and says "What a big pussy!" (Pussy is slang for vagina, but can be used to describe a coward. It was also a common British term for cat, which is the more likely meaning here...).

* In Creator/DCComics, Speedy (GreenArrow's Ward) once points out "Y'see, my straight friends and I no longer had anything in common." He means "Y'see, my non-drug-taking friends and I no longer had anything in common." The sentence can be converted to modern vernacular, though, if you tack "-edge" onto the end of "straight"; maybe future printings will take advantage of this. His name didn't escape many people, either.

* In 1942, Gardner Fox and Howard Purcell created a swashbuckling hero who battled evil from beyond the grave. His name? ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gay_Ghost The Gay Ghost.]]'' He reappeared in Creator/GrantMorrison's ''Comicbook/AnimalMan'' as a resident of Comic Book Limbo, where he said he didn't want to be brought back because of the redefining of the word "gay." He was later brought back anyway, but as ''The GRIM Ghost.'' In his inaugural story, the word "queer" comes up several times, and his ability to possess the bodies of the living is described as "the power to enter men's bodies".
