DC Comics today confirmed that there will be a new gay character in the DCU:
One of the major iconic DC characters will reveal that he is gay in a storyline in June,” Courtney Simmons, DC Entertainment’s senior vice president of publicity, confirmed to ABC News.
I think “iconic” rules out Vibe who I heard numerous times yesterday. This story however reiterates that the character will be “reintroduced”. The executive quote doesn’t reference that, however, just that the character will “reveal” they are gay.
So who is it? As I said yesterday, I don’t think it will be Tim Drake.
That said I was absolutely appalled at the comments generated by the mere suggestion that Tim Drake could be gay.
Really people, Get. A. Fucking. Grip.
Anyway you know my guess, the original Green Lantern, Alan Scott. I’d say that’s iconic. But who knows? Maybe Morrison had something.
But we’ll know soon enough.
So now that we know more, who is your guess?
