Green Lantern is now Gay




So Marvel and DC have been competing on who could be gayer that is more gay friendly over the past several weeks

dc came with a few gay characters or kisses in their books and Marvel (who had gay heroes) ended up marrying 2 characters

and now DC has come right back with making one of their staple characters gay

saw it on the news yesterday and the reporter looked shocked when the co anchor announced it like angry shocked lol guess he's a comic geek

anyway here's an article

Quote:

[img][b]DC relaunches its first Green Lantern, Alan Scott, as brave, powerful and gay[/img]


http://ll-media.tmz.com/2012/06/01/0601-green-lantern-kiss-1.jpg[/img]
PHILADELPHIA - Green Lantern, one of DC Comics' oldest and most enduring heroes, is serving as a beacon for the publisher again, this time as a proud, mighty and openly gay hero.
The change is revealed in the pages of the second issue of "Earth 2" out next week, and comes on the heels of what has been an expansive year for gay and lesbian characters in the pages of comic books from Archie to Marvel and others.
But purists and fans note: This Green Lantern is not the emerald galactic space cop Hal Jordan who was, and is, part of the Justice League and has had a history rich in triumph and tragedy.
Instead, he's a parallel earth Green Lantern. James Robinson, who writes the new series, said Alan Scott is the retooled version of the classic Lantern whose first appearance came in the pages of "All-American Comics" No. 16 in July 1940.
And his being gay is not part of some wider story line meant to be exploited or undone down the road, either.
"This was my idea," Robinson explained this week, noting that before DC relaunched all its titles last summer, Alan Scott had a son who was gay.
But given "Earth 2" features retooled and rebooted characters, Scott is not old enough to have a grown son.
"By making him younger, that son was not going to exist anymore," Robinson said.
"He doesn't come out. He's gay when we see him in issue two," which is due out Wednesday. "He's fearless and he's honest to the point where he realized he was gay and he said 'I'm gay.'"
It's another example of gay and lesbian characters taking more prominent roles in the medium.
In May, Marvel Entertainment said super speedster Northstar will marry his longtime boyfriend in the pages of "Astonishing X-Men." DC comics has other gay characters, too, including Kate Kane, the current Batwoman, The Question, and married characters Apollo and the Midnighter.
And in the pages of Archie Comics, Kevin Keller is one of the gang at Riverdale High School and gay, too.
DC has been a leader in incorporating gay characters into its comics — they had one of the first male gay kisses back in 1988.
Since then, numerous comic book heroes and villains have been written as gay, lesbian or transgender — from Batwoman to Hulkling and Wiccan in the pages of "Young Avengers."
Green Lantern would be the highest-profile openly gay hero — even the parallel earth version.
"It was just meant to be — Alan Scott being a gay member of the team, the Justice Society, that I'll be forming in the pages of 'Earth 2,'" Robinson said. "He's just meant to be part of this big tapestry of characters."
Some groups have protested the inclusion of gay characters, but Robinson isn't discouraged, noting that being gay is just one aspect to Scott.
"This guy, he's a media mogul, a hero, a dynamic type-A personality and he's gay," Robinson said. "He's a complex character."
___
turns out its one of those alternate timelines/worlds sort of deal so DC gave them an out for outting GL; and its not the Hal Jordan GL but the golden age Alan Scott GL

I thought they have already decided on that fact last year when they used Ryan Reynolds to play GL.

I remember this being talked about... thing about Green Lantern is, there are about a million of them (OK there are seven). So if one of them is gay, it's kind of pointless. It could be any random character

But maybe since it's the "first" one it is more relevant?

New gay characters won't get them mentioned in mainstream media

The gay storylines in comics are nothing new but DC knows it can sell a few extra issues, especially since its been a big issue in the news since Obama made his announcement and Amendment One in North Carolina.

Extrano, (the first gay character in comics) Northstar, (Gay AND Canadian), Rawhide Kid, Renee Montoya, (who I thought was the female cop who betrays Commissioner Gordon in The Dark Knight but I was wrong), Kevin Keller (Archie Comics), John Constantine (who is actually bi)

And those are just the high profile ones.

Hell, this isn't even the first time Green Lantern has brought up a gay storyline

colossus is gay in the ultimate (rebooted) universe. in the 616 (main) universe, he's still straight and recently became part juggernaut.
