Welp, they made Green Lantern a homo.
Pretty sure that's not a picture of Alan Scott, Choire.
Google Image "Green Lantern" and see how many pages you have to flip through before you see Alan Scott, though.
Anyway, this is mostly sad in that all the comment threads on this story read like Post editorials. (From DC's own blog: "Just another ploy into the indoctrination of a crock of Sh*t. If you want a GAY character CREATE a new one. Start with OBAMA, make him GAY and see if he likes it.")
Reminder: nerds are not good people just by virtue of being nerds. They're more often than not sniveling, pedantic, close-minded little fucks who need to get out more.
Even though this whole New 52! is a ridiculous editorial decision and most of the comics to come out of it have been crap, I'll be buying 8 copies of Earth-2 #2.
@Matt You should google "Gay Green Lantern" with safe search off, it's amazing.
@Choire Sicha@facebook Not going to try that at work, may cause SonicWall to ban Google :(
@Choire Sicha@facebook Earlier today I was trying to find an image of gay Ryan Reynolds from The Nines and getting, I imagine, much the same effect.
Man, gays don't even get an A-lister? (Don't kid yourself, Green Lantern, you're B-list at best – did you get invited to Bruce's gallery opening? Did you even KNOW about it? Try getting past the rope without the rest of your Justice League buddies and see how THAT goes for you.)
Worse, saying "Green Lantern's gay!" here is like saying "The Human Torch" when you're referring to the 1940s robot guy. Alan Scott is even C-list among Green Lanterns.
@DoctorDisaster Oh man, I totally breezed past that part. NICE, DC. Nice.
In a better world, Hal Jordan would be the c-list Green Lantern.
@DoctorDisaster Kyle Rayner or GTFO
@Matt In my new 52, Green Lantern #1 would just be 24 pages of Geoff Johns sobbing alone in the dark.
@DoctorDisaster Sobbing is what powers the Magenta Lanterns.
Well, he is the best dressed of all the superheros. *ducks to avoid the batarangs the boyfriend is chucking at me right now*
@Matt I mean, you know I'm a sucker for a popped collar.
What just happened here? How did I just make Matt's comment disappear? IS THIS MY SUPERPOWER???
@jolie Don't forget, with great comment-erasing power comes great responsibility.
@boyofdestiny I wonder if I can also use this superpower to bring Jeff Barea back. LET MY BAREA GO!
If you keep on me with the popped collar thing (I.E. POPPING MY COLLARS AGAINST MY WILL WHEN I'M NOT PAYING ATTENTION, AHEM), you're going to end up with 70s Dick Grayson as your Halloween date.
Get a room!
@Matt Do I have to wait until Halloween?
@Clarence Rosario Who? Me and Jeff Barea? I'D BE HAPPY TO IF ONLY HE WOULD COME BACK.
@jolie I WILL IF YOU WILL.
He’s kind of a cross between Mark Zuckerberg and David Geffen.
Hang on. Did someone just out Zuck?
So where does he wear his power ring?
@BadUncle In his left earlobe.
@jolie: Sorry, but anyone who goes by "Green Lantern" is not a top. I'd even question "versatile."
Really hope this means they bring back Doiby Dickles as a leather daddy.
There are like fifty gazillion Green Lanterns. What are the odds that several of them aren't gay?
Wow, I feel like a bad DC not DC blogger for having not yet pointed out that this all stinks of a viral campaign for a certain Logan Circle nightspot. (Link slightly NSFW if your office is even more prudish than mine, apparently.)
On the plus side for Hillcrest bars during ComiCon: signature cocktails for cosplayers.
On the other hand, they'll have to be made with creme d'menthe.
@BadUncle Or Melon Pucker.
@Brunhilde Or – Lord help us – Drambui.
