    Default The Gay DC comic hero is...

    And the gay DC comic hero is…

    Green Lantern, one of DC Comics’ oldest and enduring heroes, is serving as a beacon for the publisher again, this time as a proud, mighty and openly gay hero...

    I think this is a good thing, accepting other peoples sexuality in entertainment is the first step to it being accepted in society in general. Although I personally would have thought Aqua-man was gay.

    Now just to wait for some right wing activist group to call for the banning of comic books.

    No you tit! The Greenlantern in the film (which was SHIT btw) was Hal Jordan, one of the original Green Lanterns (Silver Age) with Alan Scott being the original (Golden Age). Earth 2 is an alternative universe, so Golden Age Alan Scott from Earth 1 is still straight.

    How about that hey. Interesting that they are making gay super heroes, and why not I say, but it seems like a kind of parallel universe vibe or something...

    But purists and fans note: This Green Lantern is not the emerald galactic space cop Hal Jordan who was, and is, part of the Justice League and has had a history rich in triumph and tragedy.

    Instead, said James Robinson, who writes the new series, Alan Scott is the retooled version of the classic Lantern whose first appearance came in the pages of "All-American Comics" No. 16 in July 1940.
    "This was my idea," Robinson explained this week, noting that before DC relaunched all its titles last summer, Alan Scott had a son who was gay.

    But given "Earth 2" features retooled and rebooted characters, Scott is not old enough to have a grown son.
    "By making him younger, that son was not going to exist anymore," Robinson said.

    Ah ok I was going to say it would be rather counter character if Hal Jordan was suddenly gay since he is kinda the 'playboy' type of guy.

    I won't understand it but yes I will remember it .

    Btw yes the movie was a disappointment, however the choice of Hal Jordan was awesome though , I rate Ryan Reynolds highly.

    It is an alternate reality called Earth 2, its the Deus Ex machina that allows Comic books to revamp there characters from time to time.

    Heheheh Sycoboi. The film was not the best film ever, but it also just serve as the first of a trilogy. I am sure that the rest will be better. Also, yes Reynolds was an awesome Hal Jordan. I am a bit undecided as to if I prefer him as Deadpool though...

    As far as a gay superhero goes, who the hell cares? Things like these are already all over TV and other media forms, why should comic books be any different. The X-Men thing last month was really hyped up a lot more than it should have been.
    That's what she said.
