Mark Millar (over-)reacts to Perry Moore’s reasoning behind writing his new novel, Hero (which involved the murder of gay superhero Northstar… which was Millar’s doing):
Oh, tell him to fuck off.
He didn’t die because he was gay. He died because he’d been brainwashed by The Hand.
I love the idea that Mark seems to think that his Wolverine run was reportage; “But that’s the way it happened!” Don’t worry, though, because he’s not finished pointing out that he’s not homophobic in anyway:
I just heard some of the dead on the Titanic were gays and lesbians too.
FUCK YOU, ICEBERG, YOU HOMOPHOBIC SCUM!
For what it’s worth, I don’t think that Millar’s massively homophobic, nor that any homophobia on Millar’s part was behind his killing off of Northstar. I do think that he needs to stop creating straw men arguments, though…
