According various news source, DC Comics’ Green Lantern, Alan Scott, is re-emerging as a gay man.
Green Lantern being gay starts from DC Comics latest Earth 2 series (their parallel-world) as reported by USA Today.
James Robinson, the writer behind the Earth 2 series, told USA Today:
“He’s going to be the leader of the team, this dynamic hero, he’ll do anything to save people, the bravest man on the planet. Why not just make him gay as well?”
Millions of moms responded to the issue,
This is ridiculous! Why do adult gay men need comic superheroes as role models? They don’t but do want to indoctrinate impressionable young minds by placing these gay characters on pedestals in a positive light. These companies are heavily influencing our youth by using children’s superheroes to desensitize and brainwash them in thinking that a gay lifestyle choice is normal and desirable.
DC Comics re-introduction of Green Lantern could be in response to Marvel’s X-Men same sex marriage from the comics.
Meanwhile the GLAAD responded through TMZ,
“The idea that a comic book character will make young people gay is as outlandish as saying it will give them a green power ring and the ability to fly. Even more outlandish is the idea that there are ‘one million moms’ who believe this hate group’s anti-gay nonsense. From Christian churches to sports fields, to now even fictional comic book worlds, our culture overwhelmingly supports gay and lesbian Americans and that’s what anti-gay groups like this are working against.”
