(a) See my above comment (b) I never said that he wanted to or was trying to take a pot shot at Roy, however I am saying that he indirectly and unintentionally is insulting Roy by making fun of LL and (c) see my previous posts.What makes you think that Dan Slott a) dislikes the LL character or b) Wanted to take a pot shot Roy Thomas by making a character he created gay or c) that either writer would consider making a character gay automatically would be an insult anyway?
Again, see my previous posts.What would give you the idea for your mind reading in this way?
And it has been referenced that LL is gay since, in Avengers Academy 5
I see no reason to think Slott has anything against LL unless you believe making him gay was insulting. I really can't see what difference that makes, so I cant see any insult. Unless Thomas himself has indicated he is remotely insulted, I'm afraid that I consider that to be totally spurious and poor reasoning.
While I do appreciate your view in regards how a characters original writer may come up with that character, you can see my previous posts as to how I feel original writers original concepts have to change else everything gets old fast.
