The relaunch of Green Lantern has him coming out as a gay superhero
Well I’m sure this will raise some eyebrows. DC Comics is relaunching the Green Lantern series, which has been a staple of comic book history for the past 70 years. Green Lantern is coming back, or shall I say coming out, and he is arriving with a twist.
In an interview with the NY Post, the comic book writer James Robinson decided to bring back Green Lantern as a gay superhero, making it extremely obvious with the opening sequence where Green Lantern is kissing his boyfriend.
Robinson insists that the superhero will still be the “pinnacle of bravery and idealism.” The series is coming back as part of the DC Comics project “New 52” which will be bringing back and rejuvenating several comic book characters.
So what do you think? Is this too drastic of a change for Green Lantern or not?
