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???.
