This past Saturday, in a nondescript NYC subway car, something truly extraordinary took place.

During yet another loud homophobic tirade by yet another obnoxious subway preacher, one straphanger who identified himself as gay decided to start shouting back.

"I'm a good man," our hero retorted. "And I'm a gay man. And Jesus loves me. Jesus loves me!"

His fellow commuters couldn't help but applaud. Because he's the hero Gotham deserves and the one it needs right now.
