DC Superhero Outed, Green Lantern Is Gay, Conspiracy Theories Abound

June 1, 2012

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.

“He’s very much the character he was. He’s still the pinnacle of bravery and  idealism. He’s also gay,” “Earth 2” writer James Robinson told The Post.

The Emerald Guardian’s sexuality was rebooted along with the rest of his  fictional universe as part of DC’s “New 52” initiative aimed at rejuvenating  their characters.

First, Jim Parsons star of Big Bang Theory is outed now the Green Lantern.. More than a coincidence???.

DC Comics To Out Gay Superhero, Holy Kleenex Batman, It Was Right Under Our Nose’s And We Blew It !!!!!!!

May 21, 2012

Gay DC character: Who will it be? At this point in time, legendary comic book company DC — you know, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, etc. — isn’t revealing too many specific details surrounding the upcoming reinvention of a presently unnamed hero, though some believe the homosexual superhero will be an existing, established character.

This isn’t the first time that DC had dabbled with delivering gay comic book characters to the masses. After going back to the drawing board with the “New 52″, the company released books featuring Batwoman as a lesbian and Voodoo as a bisexual. Additionally, the Teen Titans franchise features an openly gay character named Bunker. However, despite previous claims that the gay superhero would be a new addition to the universe, DC has reversed its statement, proclaiming that one of its established characters is scheduled to come out of the closet.

 “Holy strawberries Batman! We’re in a jam!”

 

 

New Super Congress, More DC Comics

July 24, 2011

Debt ceiling negotiators think they’ve hit on a solution to address the debt ceiling impasse and the public’s unwillingness to let go of benefits such as Medicare and Social Security that have been earned over a lifetime of work: Create a new Congress.

This “Super Congress,” composed of members of both chambers and both parties, isn’t mentioned anywhere in the Constitution, but would be granted extraordinary new powers. Under a plan put forth by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and his counterpart Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), legislation to lift the debt ceiling would be accompanied by the creation of a 12-member panel made up of 12 lawmakers — six from each chamber and six from each party.

Now Feds Having Problems Finding Oil In the Gulf. Go Figure, Not Mother Nature, A Real DC Hero

July 27, 2010

For 86 days, oil spewed into the Gulf of Mexico from BP’s damaged well, dumping some 200 million gallons of crude into sensitive ecosystems. BP and the federal government have amassed an army to clean the oil up, but there’s one problem — they’re having trouble finding it.

At its peak last month, the oil slick was the size of Kansas, but it has been rapidly shrinking, now down to the size of New Hampshire.

Today, ABC News surveyed a marsh area and found none, and even on a flight out to the rig site Sunday with the Coast Guard, there was no oil to be seen.

Even the federal government admits that locating the oil has become a problem.

“It is becoming a very elusive bunch of oil for us to find,” said National Incident Cmdr. Thad Allen.

Still, it doesn’t mean that all the oil that gushed for weeks is gone. Thousands of small oil patches remain below the surface, but experts say an astonishing amount has disappeared, reabsorbed into the environment.

“[It’s] mother nature doing her job,” said Ed Overton, a professor of environmental studies at Louisiana State University.
