It's Official!! Alan Scott Green Lantern Is Gay

The Golden Age Green Lantern Alan Scott who stars in the DC Comic Earth 2 a reboot of the golden age super heroes who are now in their twenties will be revealed in next weeks issue as being gay.

"He's very much the character he was. He's still the pinnacle of bravery and idealism. He's also gay,"

Earth 2 is written by James Robinson and it was pretty much a mutual decision between him and DC to make Alan Scott gay. You can read the full interview at this link.

  1. I just find the cynicism that drove this promotional campaign overwhelming. After all this time, I find it impossible to accept the thoughtless 'rebootings' of characters older than those making such changes. But then, as will be this case, the changes end up temporary; remember when Superman 'died'? Can you name all the incarnations of Robin? What number Green Lantern is this, and from which 'earth'? No doubt this he'll be replaced by yet another when DC finds the curiosity-driven sales dry up.
