Yeah, I really dislike the idea of Daken/Johnny being a couple. I'm not even so sure why it irritated me so much, but I think it's mostly due to me being annoyed at how some people always look at a strong bond/friendship between two guys to be homosexual in nature and also adding that people tend to get suspect if a straight man and a queer guy are very close friends. Just because a queer guy is best buds with a straight guy doesn't mean he has ulterior motives. They could just be really great friends. I liked that whole idea of Daken and Johnny, especially given how different they are and that Johnny may be the one person who he could show a bit of a friendship with, despite how extremely unlikely and random that friendship could be especially with one being a villain and the other a hero. Heck, I've become close buds with some folks who I would have never expected due to our differences.
