Geekscape Comics: DC’s Gay Character Revealed

Sunday 27th May 2012 by Shawn Madden

Well, earlier this week we speculated just who it was going to be when they said “One of the major iconic DC characters will reveal that he is gay in a storyline in June”.

According to the folks over at Bleeding Cool one of their sources revealed to them at Phoenix Comic Con just who the character is.

Well ladies and gentlemen… I’ll fill you in.

Dramatic pause.

Additional unnecessary line.

Wait for it…



It’s Alan Scott. The original Green Lantern. (Who… oddly enough was number one on Eric Diaz’s list)

For those unfamiliar with Alan Scott…

Alan Scott is the ORIGINAL Green Lantern introduced in July of 1940 in All-American Comics #16.

Scott was a charter member of the Justice Society Of America, beginning in All Star Comics #3 (Winter 1940). He served as the team’s second chairman, in #7, but departed following that issue and returned a few years later. He has been a key member of the group ever since, appearing in all three titles bearing the teams’ name.

After the reboot of the DC universe Alan Scott was first reintroduced in Earth-Two #1. So, I definitely can say alot of people are about to start rushing to pick that book up and retailers may just be bumping up their orders for #2.
