DC Comics’ Gay Superhero In The Works:
Publisher Dan DiDio Hints At Established Character’s Coming Out
The homoerotic subtext of comic book superheroes has been a hot topic in the gay community for some time. Now comics fans and the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender blogosphere is abuzz with news that a major DC Comics character will “come out” in a future issue.
Details of the character and his specific story arc are relatively scarce thus far, but as Bleeding Cool is reporting, DC Comics co-publisher Dan DiDio told attendees at the Kapow Comic Convention in London that the superhero — an established player in one of the series, and was originally introduced as straight — will become “one of our most prominent gay characters.”
DC Comics has produced some of the comic book world’s most iconic superheroes, including Superman, Wonder Woman and others. Senior Vice President Bob Wayne compared his company’s policy on gay characters to that of President Obama in that it “has evolved.”
