Comic book hero Superman has come under scrutiny from gay campaigners who claim he is homosexual.

According to hollywood.com, the gay magazine Advocate is calling for Superman to reveal that he is gay in an issue titled "How gay is Superman?"

The issue has sparked a lot of discussions. Gay fans point out Superman's skin-tight suit and hands-on-hips stance as sure signs. They are asking film bosses to add Superman's sexual tendencies to plot lines.

The new Superman actor Brandon Routh was voted the year's most exciting homosexual icon.
