But, Alan Scott is married… he can’t be gay.

One of DC Comics oldest heroes is super-coming out.

The original Green Lantern – a DC Comics mainstay for the past 70 years – will be revealed to be a gay man in next week’s issue of “Earth 2.”

Alan Scott – formerly a married father of two who first appeared in 1940 – tips readers off to his sexuality early on in the comic when he gives his boyfriend a welcome home kiss.

No doubt, this will create a great firestorm, but honestly, you didn’t see this coming? The dude wore a cape and a mask in daylight and had a fancy ring.

  1. Is this really DC’s first major gay character?

    Marvel got there 20 years ago with Northstar the guy who’s getting married this month. For my own part, I love the touch that Northstar’s boyfriend is a black man, too. I think that that really drives home the point they’re making.

    And a non-mutant, come to think of it.

    Uh-oh … people are right, they are promoting cross-species marriage!

    Of course, Quicksilver married Crystal, and she’s not even a human … Scarlet Witch was married to Vision, who’s a robot.

    What was I saying? Oh, yeah … isn’t DC a bit behind the curve, here?
