Okay, the whole pink kryptonite thing is uncomfortably homophobic, but I have an idea to fix it:
Kryptonians developed technology that made it possible for same-sex couples to have kids, so Kryptonians then adapted to the point where they were all attracted to multiple genders. Pink kryptonite doesn’t “turn them gay”, it messes with their brain chemistry and makes them horny for the same sex.

SPOILERS for Batman:Urban Legends #7
"I knew right away you could never be Batman."
Pleasantly surprised by a gem of a story in this future-oriented issue of Batman: Urban Legends #7
I think this issue was a beautiful homage to the great Batman: Beyond pilot "Rebirth: Part 1".
It might be the best opening scene in all of Batman anything--strikes right at the heart of who Bruce Wayne is, and what Batman is supposed to stand for (and what happens when the one fails to live up to the inhuman expectations of the other):
At a certain point in the issue, Bruce reveals what he has regretted about the legacy of Batman, and what he's leaving behind to Terry. And what he hope Terry might become:
"Terror. In the eyes of every...suspicious and cowardly...person hunted. In my father's eyes. In the heart of the city. And in mine. That is the true legacy of Batman, Terry...not Justice...not safety...my legacy is Fear. Do you understand...what's I'm saying, Terry? Why I trained you...all these years?...
You have to go beyond."
I shall not spoil anything else, but this story is worth picking up the whole issue (the rest of which is kind of a wash, in mine own opinion.)
