DC Comics Green Lantern Relaunched as 🤬 Superhero

IDK if this was posted or not because it's from last month, but this 🤬 is Fckin ridiculous. They pushin this 🤬 agenda wayyyy overboard. And N/H:
One of DC Comics oldest heroes is super-coming out.

The original Green Lantern - a DC Comics mainstay for the past 70 years - will be revealed to be a 🤬 man in next week's issue of "Earth 2."

Alan Scott - formerly a married father of two who first appeared in 1940 - tips readers off to his sexuality early on in the comic when he gives his boyfriend a welcome home kiss.
DC Comics

"He's very much the character he was. He's still the pinnacle of bravery and idealism. He's also 🤬 ," "Earth 2" writer James Robinson told The Post.

The Emerald Guardian's sexuality was rebooted along with the rest of his fictional universe as part of DC's "New 52" initiative aimed at rejuvenating their characters.

Robinson said he decided to make the change because making the character young again meant erasing Scott's 🤬 superhero son out of existence.

"The only downside of his being young was we lose his son, Obsidian, who's 🤬 . So I thought, 'Why not make Alan Scott 🤬 ?'" Robinson recalled. "That was the seed that started it."

He ran his idea by the bosses at DC, "who signed off on it without hesitation."
Robinson, a British writer who lives in San Francisco with his wife, is no stranger to 🤬 characters - he wrote DC's "Starman" comic in the 1990s, a groundbreaking title that starred a homosexual superhero. He said the only agenda he's pushing is reality.

"It's a realistic depiction of society," he said. "You have to move with the times."

He said he did hope the character - who's the most powerful member of DC's superteam, the Justice Society - would be an inspiration.

"He's a type-A personality who doesn't hide in the shadows," Robinson said.

"I hope he's a positive figure. If there's some kind of kid out there who's reading the comic and who's worried about the person he is, maybe it will give him a positive sense of who he is. Or maybe a different kid will read it and decide I don't need to bully some kind of kid in school," Robinson said.

While a 🤬 wedding in Archie Comics earlier this year and impending same-sex nuptials in a Marvel X-Men comic have recieved a small amount of backlash from angry parents, Robinson said he's not worried about that because "that kind of negativity is stupid and outmoded."

"We should be preaching love and tolerance," he said.

    That's stupid, not because they made him 🤬 but because they're changing the back story. Even with reboots the back story typically remains the same

    Ha. Now you realize the plight of a huge portion of comic fandom. The DC reboot has been met with a vast amount of criticism because they threw out pretty much all of the history, concepts, and mythos that made the fans feel invested in the DC Universe.

    For the record though, LGBT characters in comics are not new. It's been a ongoing inclusion for about twenty years now. Superhero Comics for the most part are left leaning and the genre was created and revolutionized by Jews so minority inclusion is a huge part of comics and some would say comics are behind in respectfully representing minorities.

    Why not just create a new character? At least it's not Hal Jordan or John Stewart.

    Why is this bad again? Are 🤬 so petty as to complain about the sexual orientation of a fictional character?

    While DC could've done that....they weren't going to use Alan Scott or any of the other Golden Age superheroes in any way similar to their past iterations...so they said "🤬 it" lets just reboot/modernize them for new audiences.

    I'm an avid comic book and graphic novel reader...that's why this 🤬 makes no sense...not because they made him 🤬 , like you said 🤬 characters been around DC and Marvel Universe for a while now...but completely eliminating the character's history is dumb as 🤬 ...that's a bigger risk than making him 🤬

    Is this apart of that giant revamp they're doing with all of the DC heros (Flashpoint or something like that)?

    This is some 🤬 . Theres lots of people that grew up as fans of the Green Lantern and now they going ahead and making the new green lantern 🤬 ? Thats 🤬 up. They should just create a new super hero to begin with. Good thing I never really messed with the green lantern cause I always felt like he was 🤬 anyway.
