The Green Lantern Comes Out The Closet


DC Entertainment announced today that the formerly heterosexual character of the Green Lantern will now be portrayed as a homosexual in their new comic Earth 2 #2. Alan Scott, who is the Green Lantern in the comic’s alternate universe, is portrayed as a young billionaire and the head of his own corporation. He will also have a domestic partner named Sam that will be introduced next week. New, younger versions of heroes like Superman and Batman were introduced, along with an entire universe of DC’s characters in new, modern interpretations. DC also plans to have more gender and race changes to some of its classic characters in an attempt to reflect a more realistic and diverse world.
