Re: What was Mark Waid's issues with the 1986 retelling?
Have you also noticed that Byrne has created positive good HBT characters during his career? that whatever you may find in his career there are several progressive and nice stories that show minorities in a good way?
Did you notice also that the comic you have such problems with was approved by the Comics Code Authority? and the point of it was that if uyou are a child you think that its just a kiss, the comic doesn't show anything else. If you want it to be "disgusting" , well then it is.
Could "Grossman" also be "Gross Man" ? etc.
Your hatred over 30 year old comics is quite passionate. Maybe you should, u know, ignore that, and just read stuff that gives you positive feelings?
