It├óΓé¼Γäós The Green Lantern!
The emerald defender, one of DC Comics classic superheroes, has been rewritten as homosexual as part of the artistic brand├óΓé¼Γäós New 52 initiative – a reimagining of legendary characters for today├óΓé¼Γäós 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├óΓé¼Γäós 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├óΓé¼Γäóre 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├óΓé¼Γäós 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!
