“”They live in sumptuous quarters, with beautiful flowers in large vases, and have a butler (….) It is like a wish dream of two homosexuals living together.” (Fredric Wertham, Seduction of the Innocent)
Continuing on the note of homo-erotic allusions, we now have pretty definite proof that Batman is gay. This and much else is covered in Fredric Wertham‘s modern modern moralist classic Seduction of the Innocent, where he lashed out against what he perceived as the unruly influence comic books had upon youth. Besides the obvious sodomy of Batman, he criticized hidden sexual themes, such as images of female nudity concealed in drawings of muscles and tree bark. In fact, these images were often so devious and well hidden that Wertham was the only one who saw them. Swedish readers may recognize the similarity to our own world-leading authority in the field of egyptology, Ted Borg.
