DC Comics having one their popular characters come out of the closet, report says
Fox News: Could Superman be gay?
Honchos at Superman’s comic book home, DC Comics, said this weekend that one of their most identifiable (but as of yet unnamed) straight characters will soon be coming out of the closet, according to a report.
Didio said DC’s position had shifted on the subject since he said in an interview last year that any homosexual characters would be new introductions, and that none of their existing characters’ sexual orientations would shift.
DC vice president Bob Wayne likened DC’s change in tune to President Obama’s shift on gay marriage, explaining that DC’s policy “has evolved,” the report says.
Archie Comics introduced a homosexual character, Kevin Keller, in 2010. In Keller’s initial story line, “Isn’t It Bromantic?”, Veronica expresses interest in dating Kevin but he is uninterested. As he and Jughead bond over their mutual love of food, Kevin explains that he does not want to date Veronica because he is gay. Archie Comics co-CEO Jon Goldwater explained that including an openly gay character is a way to keep the world of Archie Comics inclusive and updated. “It shows that Riverdale is in the 21st century.”
So when are these comic books going to “evolve” and have a character in a plural marriage? What about a character that favors bestiality? What about one that favors little boys? After all, “you can choose to love whoever you love.”
