Honchos at Superman’s comic book home, DC Comics, said this weekend that one of their most identifiable (but as of yet unnamed) straight characters will soon be coming out of the closet, according to a report.
No, and I was there. Dan DiDio, DC Comics co-publisher said that a previously established characters would have a different sexual orientation when introduced to the current New 52 continuity. In the way that Morgan Edge became black, Etta Candy became thin, and the like.
They didn’t say one of their “most identifiable characters”. And Superman has already been introduced to this continuity.
Which also means, ScienceFiction.com, that it won’t be Damian Wayne, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy or Tim Drake…
And I can confirm it’s definitely not Lobo.
