DC’s Gay Character: Male, Hasn’t Been Seen Post-Relaunch
At the Kapow convention in London, DC Entertainment co-publisher Dan DiDio announced that an existing character previously established as straight would be revealed to be gay in an upcoming storyline. Though there’s no still word on exactly which character he was talking about, the resulting media coverage has revealed some clues to help narrow down the list.
In a piece from ABC News, DC’s senior vice president of publicity Courtney Simmons stated that it’s a male character, being quoted as saying, “One of the major iconic DC characters will reveal that he is gay in a storyline in June.”
DC’s publicity blog The Source covered the news without making any reference to sexual orientation, writing, “there will be a big, upcoming twist for a key DCE character coming soon.”
If all these indicators prove to be accurate, DC will be revealing that a male character who is both “iconic” and “key,” but hasn’t yet been seen since last September’s New 52 relaunch, is gay — so adjust your guesses accordingly.
Here is a rundown of the top 3 guesses who The Michael Show thinks it is:
Alan Scott, Earth-2 Green Lantern
Jay Garrick, Earth-2 Flash
Wally West, the Flash
