DC Comics Green Lantern Relaunched as Gay Superhero
New York Post ^ | June 1, 2012 | Dareh Gregorian

One of DC Comics oldest heroes is super-coming out.

The original Green Lantern - a DC Comics mainstay for the past 70 years - will be revealed to be a gay man in next week's issue of "Earth 2."

Alan Scott - formerly a married father of two who first appeared in 1940 - tips readers off to his sexuality early on in the comic when he gives his boyfriend a welcome home kiss.

KEYWORDS: homosexualagenda
"Robinson, a British writer who lives in San Francisco with his wife, is no stranger to gay characters - he wrote DC's "Starman" comic in the 1990s, a groundbreaking title that starred a homosexual superhero. He said the only agenda he's pushing is reality."

San Francisco. Figures, Doesn't it?

“In Gayest Day, In Queerest Night. . . .”

I’m waiting for them to change the Green Lantern Oath next. . . (/barf. . .)

His secret hideout will be a public restroom.

. . .where he’ll hang out with a re-booted Flash, who now wears a trench-coat instead of the old red spandex. . . .

The Green Lantern? I don’t believe I know that one. When I was a kid I used to listen to the Green Hornet on the radio.

I was afraid for a minute that the Green Hornet was going to have a secret love affair with Kato, and spoil my childhood memories. Phew.

“Starman”? A sexual deviant too? Robinson seems to have a thing for homosexuals. That’s NOT “reality”. That’s called having the hots for other men. Robinson might want to do a reality check on himself.

“...a groundbreaking title that starred a homosexual superhero...”

####

Whenever the radicals on the Left want to mainstream another of their insane, destructive and idiotic ideas they congratulate each other with adjectives such as “groundbreaking”, “edgy”, or “brave”.

Us middle-aged farts have seen this tired, puerile act, MANY times before.

The Green Hornet is late to the ball. Can I say ball with regards to gay super heroes? Ace and Gary have been flying the rainbow flag outside their remodeled 1930s bungalow for 16 years now!

Maybe Superman should become transgendered and Batman and Robin get married just to be politically correct.

I haven’t seen it yet in the thread so I have to do it... just can’t stop myself.

New Headline should read

“Major Comic Book Chain announces name change to AC Comics” and relocates their offices to San Francisco!

Beat me to it. Fitting, huh. Jim Parsons, aka Sheldon Cooper, at one time was talking marriage with his long time “friend.” While channel surfing a couple night ago, I happened to see he was on Leno wearing bright red lipstick.

This just beats all. Of all the superheroes they could have chosen, they picked the one who doesn’t wear external underpants.

Somebody could have great sport with this.

One of the great secrets of the Nazis was that they had the equivalent of a homosexual civil war between their “butch” homosexual men, many of whom joined the brown shirts (SA), and the “pink” (effeminate) homosexual men they persecuted.

Even the leader of the SA, Ernst Rohm, was a butch homosexual who was caught in bed with his catamite lover, on the “Night of the Long Knives”, when most of the leaders of the SA were arrested and murdered.

Now this being said, doing an online comic book about the war between the butch and pink homosexual superheroes would be highly amusing. Make the butch ones Nazis and the pink ones communists.

Endless hissy-fit hilarity from liberals.

Big deal.....what kind of superhero is he anyway?

“Stand back or I’ll turn on my green light!”

I’d be more afraid of fireflies.

I’m sure that every homosexual in America is going to rush out and buy one of the 25 copies of this comic book. Pretend men pretending to be homosexual. Ironic.

gold age lanter redone.

weakness: WOOD

predicessor: killed by WOODEN SHAFTS of arrows.

really.

they had to quaranteen him on an alternate univers where superman wonderwoman and batman are dead. Eventually he will be ignored and re-re-re-booted.

Of course his wife and children now cease to exist. Then again the golden age lantern is still normal in the primary continuity.

now will come the plethora of pro-homosexual propaganda of “born that way”, two people who love (read have sex) are all that is needed for marriage, and other explicit sex issues.

Seriously? Why do these idiots think "homosexual = "groundbreaking"?
only agenda he's pushing is reality

Anybody stupid enough to believe that? If he really wanted to be "groundbreaking" and push reality, he'd make the most depraved super-villian homosexual. There's enough history and reality to choose from. Such as John Wayne Gacey, Jefferey Dahlmer, etc.
They made the super-hero who is vulnerable to wood the gay guy.

Yes, it’s a damn fool idea, but it’s already a proven technique for long term social engineering. It gets laughed at to start, but that’s never stopped the engineers/manufacturers of consent.

It used to be called the camel’s nose under the tent. They’ll take the laughter for now, and just keep adding to their program year after year until it becomes an accepted norm with hate speech penalties attached to even noticing that it’s weird.

And along the way, you Know it’s going to happen and This is the truly despicable nature of the left, they KNOW they’re engineering this as, Stalin put it, “You can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs.” a number of kids who for whatever reason are discovered reading it are going to get beaten, some severely.

The kids these engineers want to homosexualize are disposable to the people doing the social engineering. THAT is what the left’s Tolerance is in reality.

who are the advertisers?

are they only warner owned companies or homosexual directed products?

Is this going to now be the closet universe?

have the weakness for wood jokes started?

Perhaps the best course is to insist all book sellers and stores place this with the other adult/sex material out of the reach of minors.
