And DC Comic’s New Gay Superhero Is…

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspirationComic BooksLGBT




It’s The Green Lantern!

The emerald defender, one of DC Comics classic superheroes, has been rewritten as homosexual as part of the artistic brand’s New 52 initiative - a reimagining of legendary characters for today’s more enlightened society!

Alan Scott AKA The Green Lantern was originally a married father of two, whose son was previously written as gay.

BUT, because the super has been youthfully revamped, Scott’s family life was nixed and writer James Robinson suggested Scott be gay instead.

Robinson recently expressed:

"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?' That was the seed that started it… It's a realistic depiction of society, you have to move with the times.

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’re sure that one small religious group who likes to inflate their popularity by calling themselves One Million Moms will have LOTS of hateful words to spew about DC’s decision.

BUT Robinson has some choice words of his own: "We should be preaching love and tolerance."

TESTIFY! Respect for one another is the ONLY way the human race can move forward! We are overjoyed to be a part of this beautiful, human experience!

    What a huge victory for the gay community. Cue the crickets and tumbleweed.

  2. 2

    You force this gay shit down everyone's throats, just like the nags do with the breast feeding in public crap.
    No regard or respect to anyone else's right to privacy or differing values of modesty .
    You are the thugs. You are the bullies.

    Really they had to make green lantern gay? Insulted that they couldn't change his race, but changed his sexual orientation instead! Children who read this shouldn't even be thinking about that. SMH

    Why its the Green Lantern and his trusty side-dick!!

    Re: Ariel – Actually, there are more than 1 green latern in the DC comic books. It makes sense that one of them would be gay. And some are different ethnicities, fyi. Google it.

  6. 6

    Re: Ariel – Superman has Lois Lane - yet that is ok for kids? Spiderman has a love interest in the movies - so does Batman. So why is it wrong for Green Lantern to have a little romance?

    Re: rosebud99 – Seriously? Heterosexual relations are NORMAL. A man and woman use their sexual parts correctly and naturally to produce offspring. Homosexuality is NOT NORMAL. To promote it as such is wrong. And no, it's not about religion for me; I have none. I think homosexuality is deviant behavior and should be shoved back into the closet. I do not now nor will I ever accept gay as okay. And you know what? You have no choice but to accept that AND my opinion … it's called the Constitution. But I bet the limp-wrist won't allow this comment, because he's a tyrannical coward who is too stupid and selfish to accept disagreement. The pansy rarely practices what he preaches.

    Re: rosebud99 – It's wrong to make playing butt darts seem normal and acceptable. If he wants romance, let him have a normal, heterosexual relationship. Not this gay crap.

    …for the "Enlightened" society? Get over yourself ya pompous ass. Kinda stupid to make a character gay just to placate some segment of society so they can feel good about themselves. I'm all for not calling a black person the n word, or someone who's gay a f***** like you have aptly demonstrated before, but this is political correctness run a muck. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Re: La Garse – Approximately 10% of the population is gay. It is a variation of normal just like being left handed. It is noted in recorded human history going back thousands of years. There is also homosexuality in other species. If you disapprove of gay sex, then don't have gay sex. But who are we to try and stop normal natural sexual behaviour between consenting adults?

    Re: La Garse

    You must be the most small minded person in the world.

    Its not normal? Yet you say this isnt about being religious, then was is it normal? How are you defining Normal?

    You know being gay is completely scientific, they cant help it as much as a black man can help being black, so you hate blacks as well? They were perceived as not normal long ago.

    Grow up and don't speak about what you don't know, you clearly haven't researched it and are going into the argument with an unknowledgeable opinion

    This one kinda doesn't make sense.They shouldn't make a character gay suddenly just to please some people. I hate it when they change characters so much, it kinda ruins they're backstory. I just remembered how mad I was when they decided to completely ruin Gwen Stacy by changing her past and making her a lover of Norman Osborn (with offspring). If they want to please the gay community simply create new gay characters, or at least chose a character that makes more sense: one who wasn't been in relationships.

    Re: Ana – There are a lot of gay people out there who have been in heterosexual relationships.

  15. 15

    Re: Ana – I agree with you completely. They could have just created a new character and made him/her gay. Which creating a new hero may be harder done than said, lol. I guess Green Lantern was the best choice since there are multiple green lanterns, and it would be somewhat easy to make one gay. But I still agree with you, lol.

    Re: rosebud99 – VERY well said!

  17. RogueNYC says – reply to this


    Unfortunately there are still ignorant fools int he world that think being gay is a choice. Luckily, more and more people are opening their minds and learning that every human is programmed one way or another by nature in the womb. Live and let live, people. Why so much hate?

    Re: rosebud99
    It's a fallacy that there's a 10% gay population.
    It's more like 3%…maybe 4%.
    Of course the larger number is perpetuated by the gays to look like they are a larger voting block than they are. It's kinda like there are less Cherokees in Cambridge, Massachussets than officially stated.

  19. Ana says – reply to this


    Re: rosebud99 – Yeah, there are gays who were on heterosexual relationships, BUT, I'm pretty sure they had inner thoughts when they question their sexuality.
    The fact is that there is no build up whatsoever in this. At least they should have left some hints or thoughts to give some sense to this. But no, it's like they decided: oh, we need to show our support for gays…lets just make Green Lantern gay because we can. And I stated my opinion as a comic fan, not as a LGBT supporter (which I also am). To me, the storyline cohesion is way more important than suddenly change everything in order to change mentalities. Like I said, if they want to do that, use new characters or ones without many background. Or maybe, they could use a version of an alternate earth (yes, those exist), in order to not mess up the original story. Changing things like this just makes comic fans upset.

    Fanboys will reject this mess of an idea and DC will find itself with a comic book that only a fringe group will have interest in. Sales will plummet by mid summer.

  21. Ana says – reply to this


    Re: Atta – Exactly. They should already know how the fans are like.

  22. Edwards Baby Mamma says – reply to this


    Looks like it's time to go through the kid's toy room and get rid of all of their Green Lantern action figures and McDonald's happy meal toys before they get anymore invested in this super hero. I have no problem with someone being gay or their lifestyle. I have many gay friends. However as a parent I feel this was irresponsible to market him as straight only to make him gay. When my kids want to watch the shows and read the comics I will now have a harder time explaining to my kids what's going on. I haven't even had to talk to them about the birds and the bees the hetro version now I have to worry about how to explain this part to them as well. Thanks a lot.

    Re: rosebud99 – 10% is a myth concocted by the gay community. In reality, it is closer to 2%.

  25. 25

    Re: Atta – LOL you do realize how many freaking gay superheroes Marvel has had through out the years right? I know plenty of gay fan boys..i however don't know as many lesbian fan girls. I'm just upset cuz I've never liked green lantern he has always been boring..IT SHOULDA BEEN ROBIN !!

  26. Tae says – reply to this


    That made so much sense. Green Lantern is one of Sheldon (TBBT)'s favorite superhero and now they are both turned out to be gay (even though Jim Parson is outed long ago).

  27. kandycane says – reply to this


    Re: rosebud99 – to be honest, he should of written a new super hero with a gay lifestyle. Sorry, but DC' s idea….STUPID!!! I'm all for gay rights but why a childhood favorite that is known to be straight? Why not a whole different character? The writer is purposely tryin to piss off someone….

  28. Momo  says – reply to this


    Re: Ana
    I agree with with you on this Becuse it will make of the comic fan upset about this…but we don't know what the gay people truly think about this or know anything a about this either…but who know maybe some of the comic fans will get upset about this or Not.But…I think they should make a new SuperHero characters or something make it a she or he superhero who's gay or make a she or he sidekick who's gay or Something. But what think is what about the gay people think about this?…like do they want some new SuperHero characters in gay comic book? or do they want like batman,superman or the green lantern to remake of them to be gay? And plus Do gay people reads superhero comic book…?

    1. not buying gay super hero for my kids. BUT

    2. good marketing tactic by marvels to raise big news for free advertising. :D

    Nobody has mentioned that the Golden Age Green Lanterns weakness is actually wood. Insert joke here.

  31. 31

    The hell are they targeting gay people for? I've never known anyone, gay or straight, to read comics. I always imagined that comics were for white geeky kids in the suburbs. No one else would waste time.

    Re: La Garse – Wow, what a complete looser, I bet your the reason confused teens commit suicide . You hatred and bigotry probably stems from the fact that you are as fugly on the inside as you are on the outside, keep your hatred to yourself, I fired 6 heterosexuals just like you, I wish the gay community that owns businesses would do like I do, I give my gay clients a 30% discount and make looses like you pay more, HA HA. You bigoted bitch.

  33. Ron Price says – reply to this


    What a hot mess…. Why change the whole identity of an established hero, Green Latern? Why not just create a new hero who happens to be gay? A mess…..

  34. Velyna says – reply to this


    @ La Garse You made me throw up in my mouth a little bit. You have no right to tell people what they can and can't do with themselves. It's like telling a man and a woman they can't get married because they have anal sex or like BDSM or don't want children. You can't do that. There are plenty of couples that don't want children, so what because they refuse to procreate that will be unnatural and disgusting? Trust me there are more straight guys out there that have no idea what the hell the word romance means. I'm not gay but sometimes I wish I was just for how amazingly loving and romantic the LGBT community is. You obviously do not know any gay people and will not take the time to understand them, but I garentee you if you took the time to meet some people from the LGBT community you would feel like a huge asshole for saying the comment you said right now and thinking the way you think right now. Go meet some before you talk shit like this.

  35. 35

    Re: RandyM – "I give my gay clients a 30% discount and make looses like you pay more". So basically you discriminate against straights by giving gay clients a 30% discount and make those that don't conform to your beliefs pay more. I'm sure this is illegal but to the gay community it's acceptable because hypocrisy and the law doesn't apply to them.

    Haha you guys are all so funny. Either defending the gay community or bashing the shit out of it. I work at a comic book store so I know why they did this. Not to make the gay community happy, but to piss off the mothers that kept sending them letters saying how Robin (yes, as in Batman) was already too flamboyant and not appropriate for their sons. So what did DC do?? Made a gay character! So all your bitching and fearing people with a different preference than you has led to this crap. I don't like it either, its a stupid story line, but if it weren't for you bitches bitching it wouldn't have ever happened. Way to go homophobes you ruined Green Lantern for everyone -.-

  37. 37

    Re: La Garse – You couldn't commented any better than this. I'm so happy to see someone stand up to the homosexual bullies who force their sexuality upon us every chance they get and call anyone that doesn't approve of their lifestyle homophobes and haters. I'm sick and tired of it and I wish more people would stand up to these idiots and their gay agenda.

    This is sick and very disturbing of our childhood icons and FYI no one is created nor born gay and there's nothing scientific about it.

    Re: Edwards Baby Mamma – Don't throw out your Green Lantern toys yet. It's not the same guy. The Green Lantern you have toys of is straight. Hal Jordan, Green Lantern played by Ryan Reynolds, is straight.

    Alan Scott, this Green Lantern from the 1940's is a fringe character in the DC universe at best at this point.

    Hal Jordan is the straight kick ass Green Lantern who is a member of the Justice League.

    Alan Scott is basically a previous Green Lantern that nobody cares about anymore, making it easy for DC to change him without much outcry.

    It would have been very different if DC had said tat Hal Jordan would now be gay.

    DC saying that they were going to make one of their more recognizable characters at isn't quite true at all.

    Homosexuality is not a high standard for life. It's a very dangerous sexual practice. To make a gay superhero is to make someone not deserving of such a title because this "hero" tries to teach children that doing dangerous life threatening things is a good thing. Homosexual sex practices have killed many people who would have otherwise been alive. A homosexual superhero isn't a hero but a villain in disguise.

    Go here to find out what the gay superheroes and gay men in general do and why it's dangerous:
