DC Comics’ Green Lantern (Not Hal Jordan) Is Gay

That’s right, folks. The original Green Lantern, Mr. Alan Scott, is coming out of his superhero closet. The original Green Lantern from the 1940s, Scott was revealed to be gay after kissing his boyfriend despite formerly being a husband and father of two children. He will be revealed as a gay man in next week’s issue of “Earth 2”, a reboot of the Alan Scott character that was ordered by DC comics as a part of their “New 52” initiative, which is “aimed at rejuvenating their characters”.

This is not the first time that James Robinson, the writer of “Earth 2”, has created a gay superhero. Back in the 1990s, he wrote the “Starman” comics for DC. Starman was an openly gay superhero that Robinson hoped would teach tolerance and acceptance to children who read his comics. Regarding the Alan Scott character, Robinson has this to say:

“I hope he’s a positive figure. If there’s some kind of kid out there who’s reading the comic and who’s worried about the person he is, maybe it will give him a positive sense of who he is. Or maybe a different kid will read it and decide I don’t need to bully some kind of kid in school…We should be preaching love and tolerance…that kind of negativity is stupid and outmoded.”

According to the New York Post:

“The character is different than the more modern Green Lantern, ladies’ man Hal Jordan, who stars in his own comics and is a member of an extraterrestrial police force called the Green Lantern Corps. Jordan’s also part of DC’s Justice League with Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, the Flash and Aquaman.”

The newest issue of “Earth 2” is set to hit stands next Wednesday.

  1. Disgusting gay crap. Oh we all need to putt out a gay guy in every two or three years because we have no more original inspiration for new story so we bring back from death a straight guy and we make him gay to copycat marvel and their retarded gay Northstar!
