Skip to comments.Is Superman gay? (DC Comics in a questionable business decision)
Posted on 05/22/2012 6:26:23 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
The Man of Steel? Lois Lane's lover? DC Comics has jumped the shark - maybe. But the DC Comics co-publisher appears to be contemplating changing the sexual orientation of an "established character:"
One question asked at the DC panel today at the Kapow comic convention in London, was about DC co-publisher Dan DiDio's interview with The Advocate. Specifically over the decision not to change any character's sexual orientation when relaunching the DC Universe. At the time Dan stated they would introduce new LGBT characters rather than switch orientation, but the question asked why DC would switch race, size, age, all sorts of identifying features, but not orientation.
Surprisingly, Dan stated that they had changed DC's policy in this regard. And they ae about to reintroduce a previously existing DC character who was previously straight and now will be "one of our most prominent gay characters."
As Senior VP Sales Bob Wayne explained, just like the President of the United States, the co-publisher's policy on this "has evolved."
And despite his best efforts to stem Dan's wandering mouth, we also got the very strong impression that the death of Superman of Earth Two many not have been as final as portrayed...
Obviously, this doesn't mean that the character that is to be transformed is Superman. But his death certainly opens up that possibility.

Now known as AC-DC Comics.
Superman becomes THUPERman!!!!
Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex
WARNING it is a bit graphic.
Maybe superman is depressed all his women friends from earth end up dead due to sex...
Well, since Bizarro Superman was exactly the opposite of Superman, wouldn’t he had to have been gay? Wouldn’t most of the whole planet?
In the “new Superman universe” is Bizarro Superman then straight?
Man, hours of conversational grist for geeko-americans.
Well, if it is Superman, I hope they give him a couple of face tats (tear drops, maybe?) and make him the pitcher and not the catcher in his relationships.
You know, the love that dares not speak its name, now WONT SHUT THE HELL UP.
Isn’t Wonder Woman gay?
Not that there is anything wrong with that - island of Amazon women and all.........
I’ll be in my bunk.
Technically since Superman isn’t human, he can’t he hetero or homosexual. There’s none of his own species left.
RE: the love that dares not speak its name
Remind us again... where did we get this line from?
Not only is Wonder Woman’s island Lesbian but any man who lands there must be killed. How tolerant.
RE: Theres none of his own species left.
There are some... in the PHANTOM ZONE.
The love that dare not speak its name is a phrase from the poem “Two Loves” by Lord Alfred Douglas, published in 1894. It was mentioned at Oscar Wilde’s gross indecency trial, and it is classically interpreted as a euphemism for homosexuality.
Only when exposed to pink Kryptonite
Dan DiDio? That explains everything...
Gives the Wonderwoman/Invsible man and Supeman joke a whole new meaning.
During his trial Oscar Wilde said...
‘It is impossible to get a conviction for sodomy in England - half of the English don’t think it is physically possible - and the other half are doing it.’
He was convicted.
I see where this is going...it is the Superman from the 40's...the so-called 'Earth 2' Superman who was disposed of a number of years ago...DiDio used to work on soap operas for ABC before he moved on to DC Comics. Now this all makes sense...
Brings back to mind the joke about Superman, the Invisible Man and Wonder Woman.
WW was laying out nude, sunning herself by the pool. Superman was flying about, looking for something to do and saw her. He thought to himself, “I can fly down there and hit it faster than a speeding bullet and be gone in a flash.” So he did. Wonder Woman’s eyes popped open and she exclaimed, “What in the world was that??!!” The Invisible Man said,”I have no idea but my butt sure is sore!”
There must be some truth this supposed joke. I wouldn’t have laid out all that money seeing his movies when I was a child if I had known he was probably using it to sneak into gay bars all that time.
