Parting Shot: Batwoman & The Question and Other Geeky Marriage Equality Memes

This week, as the Supreme Court of the United States deliberates on the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act — which defines marriage for federal purposes as between a man and a woman — Americans and friends from around the world have been expressing their support for marriage equality by adopting the Human Rights Campaign’s logo as their temporary social media icons. It didn’t take long for people to get creative with the highly Photoshoppable image, and what’s resulted is an endless series of remixes that, as you might expect, contains more than a few versions that appeal to our tastes here at ComicsAlliance.

ComicsAlliance Senior Editor Andy Khouri used the artwork of JH Williams III and Cully Hamner to produce the HRC logo above, referencing the relationship between lesbian superheroes Batwoman and The Question. You can check out some more of our favorites below.

This one’s not particularly geeky but I just love it:

You can see more variations at the Human Rights Campaign Flickr feed, and others are being compiled at the Equality Logos Tumblr.
