DC Comics to announce gay Green Lantern in the pages of Earth 2
DC Comics has revealed that Alan Scott, the Green Lantern in the “Earth 2″ comic book set in an alternate universe, will be revealed as gay in the second issue of the series, “Earth 2″ #2, on sale Wednesday. “Starman” writer James Robinson is helming the series.
“I’m very proud to be introducing Alan Scott into DC COMICS-THE NEW 52,” said series writer James Robinson at DC Comics’ Source blog. “He was my favorite Golden Age character and one I’m very familiar with so I’m really excited to be updating him for a contemporary readership. However, I think old-time readers will be pleasantly surprised by how, in some ways, I’m trying to show the ‘classic’ Alan Scott at the same time. He’s still the same dynamic, heroic guy he was. He’s still the head of a media empire like he was in his prior version, but of course with the form of media changing and evolving with the times. And in many ways, his origin mirrors the original one also. Oh, and on Earth 2 there is only one Green Lantern, so Alan’s title is The Green Lantern. Alan’s sexuality is just one facet of him, along with his innate goodness, valor, charisma and skill at leadership that makes him the perfect man to wield the power of the green light in the world of Earth 2.”
