DC Comics Superhero To Announce He is Gay: Place Your Bets

DC Comics’ Gay Superhero Has Arrived

The publisher of DC Comics, Dan DiDeo, made a major announcement at a comic book convention in London last week, saying that they would introduce the first gay superhero in DC Comics history.

DiDeo was sketchy on the details at the Kapow Comic Convention of exactly who the new gay superhero would be, but there is strong speculation that this gay superhero would be an existing comic book superhero who comes out of the closet rather than a totally new character introduction to the DC comics stable of characters.


The announcement reflects changing societal values and increasing acceptance of the gay and lesbian community. Fans have been left to wonder if one of their favorites such as Wonder Woman, Batman, Batwoman or Superman will come out of the closet to fully embrace their true sexual nature. DiDeo had previously hinted that DC Comics had developed a totally new gay superhero, but admitted at the convention that it is actually an existing character who reveals his homosexuality.

  1. If a new character was made that would be fine, but to take an existing character and having him reveal he is gay is just stupid. It’s gonna ruin the character. I know that there is this whole movement towards empowering **** but it’s becoming riduculous. In 10 years when theis gay issue is not such a big deal DC would have ruined one of their own characters just because it was fashionable in 2012. The should just make a new character.

  2. I know this is all about empowering **** but it’s all getting annoying! Stop shoving it in our faces! It’s being overdone these days in TV/movies and almost seems like the creates of TV Shows & movies HAVE to incorporate this into their stories! It’s already well known that this is becoming accepted by society and people will make their choice (WHEN THEY BECOME DATING AGE..WHICH IS YEARS AFTER WHEN THEY ARE KIDS READING COMIC BOOKS!!) according to who they are attracted to, so you don’t have to put it out there anymore!

    I have no problem with people being gay, but I don’t need to see it every day. I mean, on the street/in public is one thing (we can look away) but do we have to see it all the time on TV (where we can’t change the channel without risking missing someone else that’s actually important/part of the story we want & enjoy)?!

    Also, doing so with a comic book character is absolutely ridiculous! I mean, being Louis & Clark and Spiderman, how many comic book characters have we even seen dating (other than perhaps in movies like the Fabulous Four)?! Kids don’t care about or even pay much attention to the love & romance part of a comic book!

    1. You know what, I find your post kind of offensive. Actually, there are very few gay shows on television and just a few gay characters here and there. Gay people are a fact of life, they are 10 percent of the population. Just you reacting this way shows you are NOT okay with gay people. What is your problem? We have a right to be out EVERYWHERE, the street, media, and YES that includes comic books. Gay for kids is only a problem if you TELL them it’s a problem.

  3. This is really ridiculous! Why are they going to change a classic character to appease the “10%”. I’m tired of these stupid publicity stunts. I’m not going to pansy-arse around with my feelings on this… I support this about as much as I support Gay Marriage. Take something great (like a traditional union of a Man and Woman, and in this case a characters legacy), and change it just because someone has their feelings hurt because they make choices out of the “norm” of society… and no your “10%” isn’t enough to be classified as norm as far as I’m concerned… its more like an anomaly…. I sence that there will be a backlash on DC because of this…
