The Green Lantern Is Gay

In next weeks issue of Earth 2, DC Comics announced that the Green Lantern will come out as gay. Coincidentally, I thought Green Lantern was already one of the gayest superheroes.

“He’s very much the character he was. He’s still the pinnacle of bravery and idealism. He’s also gay,” “Earth 2” writer James Robinson told The Post.

The Emerald Guardian’s sexuality was rebooted along with the rest of his fictional universe as part of DC’s “New 52” initiative aimed at rejuvenating their characters.

Robinson said he decided to make the change because making the character young again meant erasing Scott’s gay superhero son out of existence.

“The only downside of his being young was we lose his son, Obsidian, who’s gay. So I thought, ‘Why not make Alan Scott gay?'” Robinson recalled. “That was the seed that started it.”

He ran his idea by the bosses at DC, “who signed off on it without hesitation.”

A masked man who flies around in tights and derives his power from an enchanted piece of jewelry is gay? Didn’t see that coming.
