Green Lantern is Gay (In A Separate, Alternate Universe Though Just To Be Safe)

Also, he’s flaming. Literally. Subtle, DC. Very subtle…

A huge amount of online ink was spread today covering the supposedly groundbreaking news that DC Comics made Green Lantern gay which is surprising considering it’s not even Hal Jordon the well-known, mainstream version, but instead a rebooted version of the first Green Lantern, Alan Scott, who now exists on an alternate Earth that only hardcore geeks know about. Yet that hasn’t stopped DC from patting themselves on the back for “keeping with the times” despite the fact they basically just tucked their new gay hero as far away from sight as possible. Like in a closet, for example.
