DC Gay Superhero?

Postby LauraSeabrook on Tue May 22, 2012 9:41 am

I heard on the radio this morning that .

Image

The way it was put on TripleJ radio, by a local "nerd celebrity", was that it's going to be an established character, not some invented "GayMan". There was then speculation as to who. The suggestions were Batman or Superman, with counter arguments that no, couldn't be Batman because he's had sex with a lot of women, and Superman because no one's going to call a guy who can split a planet in two a "fag". I suspect though that the Radio Jocks are thinking of pre-reboot versions of those characters. Batman's now Dick Grayson isn't he? And Superman's backstory has had him married to Lois for a long long time (and loving it).

I suspect it's going to be a cope-out, some superhero with a minor or problematic role like Aquaman or the latest Blue Beetle. What do folk think, who do you think they'll pick and why?

Mind you, if he's the last of his kind (unlike Supe's whose relatives turn up regularly) and a shape changer how could he be gay? ;P

Turns out it's Green Lantern. On Earth-2. Major cop out? Well if Earth-2 gets cancelled before issue 12, I'd say yes.

Hmmm, just reread the story, perhaps I shouldn't be so confident about it being Alan Scott.

Still, I consider Bleeding Cool pretty reliable. I guess we'll see soon enough.

Ok now it's official.

It's a shame I'm not reading it because Nicola Scott does some nice artwork.

It kinda shows how different the media world is today, Obsidian being gay never got this much attention.
