An Icon for Pride: Steve Orlando on Embracing the Charms of Midnighter [Interview]

midnighter-feat

When Midnighter made his debut in the Wildstorm comic Stormwatch by Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch, he was a black ops Batman pastiche that played directly on the idea of the Caped Crusader as a humorless and violent bondage fetishist. Midnighter's romantic relationship with Superman analog Apollo was both the next step in the joke, and a step towards making the character more three-dimensional.

Oh, and the violence.

With today's launch of a new ongoing Midnighter series from writer Steve Orlando and artist ACO, the leather-clad action man will hope to further distinguish himself.
