Another Comic Book Hero Goes Gay?


Marvel Comics already has its gay superhero, Northstar. The comic book company is planning a Northstar "marriage" on June 20. Now DC Comics appears to be following suit. The original Green Lantern, a character named Alan Scott, is returning, but with one major change. He's gay. The question is... why?

As noted in The Christian Post, X-Men character Northstar will marry his companion in the June 20th issue:

"When gay marriage became legal in New York State, it raised obvious questions since most of our heroes reside in New York State", said Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Axel Alonso in an interview with Rolling Stone this week.

"Northstar is the first openly gay character in comics and he's been in a long-term relationship with his partner Kyle so the big question was – how would this change his relationship? Our comics are always best when they respond to and reflect developments in the real world. We've been doing that for decades, and this is just the latest expression of that."

Now, The Blaze reports that as part of DC Comic's "universe-wide reboot," Green Lantern is coming back, but this time he's gay:

The big reveal officially comes Wednesday in the second issue of DC’s “Earth 2” series, which features Scott as the main superhero of a parallel world. Scott, who first appeared in a 1940 comic, is getting a new origin story as a young media mogul as part of DC’s universe-wide reboot.

DC confirmed the news about the character Friday after co-publisher Dan Dido told a convention audience in May that a heretofore straight character would be gay.

“He’s going to be the leader of the team, this dynamic hero, he’ll do anything to save people, the bravest man on the planet. Why not just make him gay as well?” writer James Robinson told USA Today.

What is all the fuss about? Obama is giving speeches endorsing gay marriage. Courts are picking up the issue. What is going on? According to the Huffington Post, Gary Gates, a demographer at the Williams Institute estimates that only 1.7 percent of the entire adult population in the U.S. is gay. Based on the way the media and the left hype the issue, most Americans probably think the number is much higher.

But back to the point. Why even make a superhero gay? Isn't the comic book for kids? Isn't it supposed to show the good guy fighting bad guys? What's the agenda here, when no kid out there cares whether his or her favorite super hero is gay or straight.

    I wonder if Ryan Reynolds would still have played the part of the Green Lantern if he knew in advance that they were going to do this to the character, or did he not care, what some people will do for a buck. It’s discusting any way you look at it. Then we wonder why “What is happening to this Country?” I’ll tell ya what… it’s going straight to hell in a hand basket, faster than the speed of light. Where in the Constitution does it say we have the right to pervert, kill steal and destroy, that’s the devils job and we the people are taking it away from him. Don’t we have enough battles to fight?

    Wonder how this makes Ryan Reynolds, who played the Green Lantern in the 2011 movie, feel? I think HuffPo should interview him on this subject. Of course, if he’s a typical Hollyweird limo liberal, he will be obliged to say he’s okay with it.

    For a special interest group, which representing less than 2 percent of the overall population gays surely are, why should they dominate in favorable media coverage and why should their agenda be any more important, or highlighted, than anyone else’s?

    Rusty571 is, indeed, correct. It’s all about indoctrination of our children, as if most regular public school, liberal sophistry and slosh aren’t already turning their brains into mush.

    Why? Green Lantern is gay to increase sales and spark investor/collectors to buy this comic in bulk for profitable return. It will probably work.
    As to the root cause for Green Lantern’s gaity, I suspect there is something in the spandex!

      That you would even equate being gay to being a pedophile shows how little you know about the subject. While one (gay) is about being attracted to and loving someone of the same sex, the other (pedophile) is about preying on the young and helpless. One involves two consenting adults while the other involves a victim of manipulation and abuse. If you can’t see the difference between these two completely different types of people, may God have mercy on your soul.

      Surely sureshot you aren’t implying that the pedophiles don’t ‘love’ the children they are attracted to? I mean, I’m certain they don’t look at it as ‘preying’ or even wrong. Have you ever talked to a pedophile, or are you showing just how little you know about the subject?

      The age of consent can change too. Well, who knows how low the government might allow it to go? Think about it… The government allows homosexuals to marry in some states even though I don’t want it. Who’s to say what they might change that ‘you’ think is wrong?

      Bring on that famous liberal tolerance! LOL, nah…

      BTW, both are sins. I’m just pointing out that accepting one and disapproving of the other is a bit hypocritical when both are sin.

    Of course Ryan Reynolds is a extreme liberal, he was married to Scarlett Johansson who is a flaming elitist liberal that swooned all over Obama during the election. O’ and Scarlett emailed each other like they were children. Ryan will definitely think it’s cool for his character to go gay. He’s part of Hollyweird elite, and they think they know so much more than us simpletons.

    It does seem to be completely unnecessary. I’m a movie fan of the comic book heroes and go to all the movies, including the recent Green Lantern, Captain America and the Avengers. I will continue to go to those films that do not make our heroes homosexual. There is just no point to it. It is rare that the heroes have any love life, but to make a point of inserting a homosexual relationship is nothing more than an attempt at political indoctrination. Why would I pay my money for that?

    Batman/Robin, Lone Ranger/Tonto and finally we will have oy Rogers having an affair with his horse. I always knew Rogers was too sickly sweet to be a real cowboy and now I know — his horse was in love with him because of his singing or was that Gene Autry.

    Where does this nonsense end and aren’t there laws against porno aimed at children or is that another dead issue in our Liberal society? Sick, sick and more sick. Comics like this are not aimed at consenting adults, but at children and as such should be off the shelves and into the wastebasket along with the publishers.

    Obviously before any actor agrees to play a hero, he needs to have a clause prohibiting the story writers from changing him into a pervert, which should keep a few more lawyers employed fighting corruption and crime (in their dreams).

    I should point out to those who are comparing the Hal Jordan Green Lantern (Ryan Reynolds), that this is about Alan Scott, the original Green Lantern from the 40′s who got his power from a magical lantern.

    Hal(Ryan)-(an entirely different character) gets his power from the Main Battery on OA, from the Guardians of the Universe.

    That’s one of the reasons DC felt safe to do this. They know that Alan is a ‘very secondary character’ in a side line set of comics that aren’t their main money makers. I’m not sure, as I don’t care for Alan Scott’s Green Lantern, but I don’t even think the character has a comic book of his own. He generally shows up in the Justice Society of America (JSA) books.

    It figures he’d be homosexual. The JSA story lines are usually a waste of time.

    rick63, you’re spot on. The consumer has the final say, and since most kids have to ask Mom & Dad for the money to buy this trash, the parents are the ones who hold the power to put the brakes on this agenda. If they say NO the first time one of their kids wants to bring one of these so-called comic books home, then the problem will self-correct thru loss of revenue. That, my friends, holds far more sway than what the 2% can bring to bear on the LGBT agenda. Remember Don Imus and Glen Beck and what advertising boycotts did to their careers. The “power of the purse” controls everything, and if parents refuse to fund the purchase of this kind of garbage, whether it be in print or on the big screen, the morons responsible will have to eat a lot of newsprint. Investors want the value of their stock to increase and their dividends to be paid in cash, not unsold copies of comic books.

    Why wreck an already established super hero? If they want to have a gay super hero, create one….don’t ruin one we already know and love, for crying out loud. This is about as stupid as JKRowling coming out and saying Dumbledore was gay. Yeah, right, ruin the series, why not just to get your name back in the spotlight. Good going. You and I both know this is done to try and get more kids to grow up thinking being gay is a dandy thing. won’t be long and we’ll have teachers telling the kids that Washington and Lincoln were gay…probably throw in Benjamin Franklin, too. Why not? Wasn’t this the way of history? When things get to the saturation point of depravity, don’t they crumble and destroy themselves? I think we’re next in line.
