Will Alan Scott, DCís Original Green Lantern, Be Reintroduced As A Gay Man?
Bleeding Cool ^ | May 24, 2012 | Rich Johnston

Posted on 05/24/2012 2:04:37 PM PDT by C19fan

Understand that this is not a firm story. Not like DC Comics renumbering all their New DCU comics to issues zero through September, say.

This is based on a number of well sourced people and involves considerable hearsay.

It does however make a lot of sense.

Who is the, as yet unknown gay character being reintroduced to the DC Comics superhero titles? Male, an iconic character, someone who would become one of DC’s most prominent gay characters?

I’m hearing that it’s Alan Scott, the original Green Lantern.

They’ll have to change the name to the “Brown Lantern.”

“They’ll have to change the name to the “Brown Lantern.””

If DC wants to put themselves out of business, go ahead.

How did this work out for “Alpha Flight”??

The original green lantern had a girlfriend and he ultimatly married her. (I believe two characters were his children (obsidian?))

Every website has restated this story with a new victim. batman, superman, and now original green lantern.

His weakness was wood btw. THERE are going to be a plethora of wood jokes if this pans out.

Let those who worship evil’s might,
beware my power.. Green Lantern’s light!”

Talk about worshiping evil. What could be more evil than legitimizing homosexuality to kids?.

Obsidian is the codename of Todd Rice, who is the biological son of Alan Scott and Rose Canton, respectively the Golden Age superhero Green Lantern and villain Thorn.

His sister is Jade. She is essentially one big emerald power source. She is Obsidian’s twin sister.

So to make this character a homosexual, they have to kill off two other characters.

Yowza! See my online prediction here:

.............

Well, okay, I didn't exactly predict this, but I did mention Flash, Aquaman, Green Lantern, and Green Arrow in my posts here.

You had to figure it was a second-tier or third-tier superhero, not Superman or Batman, but somebody who was almost forgotten nowadays.

Of those I mentioned, Green Arrow was the most obscure and forgotten, and thus the most likely to be resurrected in this way.

But this gives Green Arrow relationship with his youthful sidekick Speedy (and they all had youthful sidekicks or onetime selves in those days) a disturbing turn.

so then there will be shaft jokes? bow jokes? not so straight arrow jokes?

Your premise does keep with the homosexuals’ practice of claiming the dead.

Meanwhile; the cover of Astonishing X-Men #51 portrays an inter-racial ‘wedding’ between two sodomites...that will be released in a couple of weeks. There are images ‘out there’ at some of the comic forums...

“His weakness was wood btw. THERE are going to be a plethora of wood jokes if this pans out.”

that could be the reason to pick him, as the left likes to coat their bs with humor to get the populace to go along with it

simple solution. contact DC and explain that you will no longer allow your kids to read their comics. any comic that feels it needs to indoctrinate children with their pedo friendly bs doesn’t deserve your money.

also tell them you will be encouraging other parents to do the same.

Dan DiDio is the culprit at DC Comics...he was previously employed in the world of ABC ‘soap operas’...

They’re just adjusting by a generation.

Obsidian was gay in his previous life.

The softer target would be your local comic shop...call them and tell them you do not appreciate them marketing this crap to children...most of these stores are a financial house of cards, and would not be able to stand against any semblance of bad publicity or a boycott. THEY will put the pressure of DC...we will be ignored.

The funny part is they are going to lose big!

Rowling didn’t “out” Dumbledor as a homosexual until after the series’ completion. Even then, she never alluded to this in any book.

She got her money first. Then she ingratiated herself to the “must attend” parties crowd.

Too bad if it's Green Arrow. I always liked characters that weren't radioactive powered, just smart guys who happened to be badasses.

Although I liked Green Lantern as a kid, he was too powerful, thus became boring. Kind of like Superman. It never made sense that Superman didn't just go medieval on criminals. Dead Lex Luthor= no more world-threatening evildoing.

It’s not Green Arrow. They said it won’t be a hero they’ve already reintroduced (last year, they “rebooted” their entire continuity, and are still rolling out some of their, erm, retooled characters).

They said one candidate is a character called Vibe. Never heard of him, but the name sounds appropriate.

Vibe the “hip” hispanic character that went nowhere?

The one who whose power was vibration? (human vibrator?)

Warner Big boys should be firing the lot at DC.

she backed off the claim when the suits pointed out (contracts) noting this would affect her cash flow.

She reduced it to “would have thought” or some set of weasel words.
