The new Man of Steel is going bisexual.
DC Comics announced that the son of Clark Kent will be exploring his sexuality — in very graphic ways.
Jon Kent will be involved with a man who has pink hair in “Superman: Son of Kal-El.”
“I knew replacing Clark with another straight white savior could be a real opportunity missed. I’ve always said everyone needs heroes and everyone deserves to see themselves in their heroes,” writer Tom Taylor told IGN.
The new Superman will also be addressing the world’s societal problems, according to Taylor.
“The question for Jon (and for our creative team) is, what should a new Superman fight for today? Can a 17-year-old Superman battle giant robots while ignoring the climate crisis? Of course not,” Taylor told IGN. “Can someone with super sight and super hearing ignore injustices beyond his borders? Can he ignore the plight of asylum seekers?”
In other words, this new incarnation of Superman will not be felled by kryptonite. Instead, he’ll get triggered by toxic masculinity and villains who misgender people.
In recent days DC Comics has been sending straight superhero characters to conversion therapy. As a result, a number of our beloved heroes, from Robin the Boy Wonder to Bat Woman now bat for the other team.
I guess in the DC Universe you aren’t born that way.
So maybe we should not be surprised that Superman now fights for his own truth, social justice and the LGBT way.
