Bunker Adds Diversity to TEEN TITANS
Comic Book Resources announced today new information on Miguel Jose Barragan, the upcoming new member of the Teen Titans calling himself Bunker (formerly The Wall).
Along with the name change, which had previously been mentioned in the commercial for Teen Titans, we learn that Miguel is from a Mexican village, he’s Catholic, and gay. He comes from a family and a community that could care less about his sexual orientation, and it’s reported that he’s grown up in a very angst-free environment.
From writer, Scott Lobdell: His real name is Miguel Jose Barragan. He was raised in a very small Mexican village called El Chilar. He was very loved by his family and the village as well — and they were as accepting of his homosexuality as they were to his super powers when they first manifested. To that end he grew up in an angst-free environment. He was born out of the closet and so he has a very refreshing outlook on life.
