    DC Comics will relaunch one of their oldest and most beloved comic characters, The Green Lantern, as openly gay in the issue to come out next week.

    AND he looks like such a good kisser!

    I guess this is a good thing, but it seems a little behind what Marvel has done. icon_neutral.gif

    It should be noted that this is not the silver age Earth-1 version, Hal Jordan (as played by Ryan Reynolds in the movie). This is the Earth-2 version based on his golden age counterpart, Alan Scott:

    Ironically, in his original version, this character had a gay son: Todd Rice aka Obsidian:

    It's part of the reason they made him gay. He's younger, so he can't have a gay son. They made him gay instead (per the CNN article).

    Hey Negative Nancy, nobody claimed that it's gonna change the world. It's definitely noteworthy though, even if only as an indicator of how much things have changed.

    To some young gay man who loves comics and later dealing with his homosexuality, it just may be a HUGE deal.

    It's a bull shit cop out, really.

    It's not a major DCU character; it's an alternate reality character that'll be in 3 issues and not heard from much otherwise. Midnighter and Apollo are much more interesting and they aren't being featured in the news. Just DC trying to get some attention in light of marvel's publicity stunt with Northstar. Which is also lame.

    The changes to DCU continuity make that a guessing game. The original Golden Age Green Lantern was a pretty big deal, an established character; this rebooted version of the same... Who knows?

    Exactly. If it had been Batman or Superman, OK. Even Robin would have been something, and something of a natural. But GL? Still if Ryan Reynolds plays him, I'd get REALLY excited.

    Was the Green Lantern already a gay icon before this comic? Seems like there are a few guys from this who have pics of themselves dressed as him.
