DC is getting ready for a major character to come out of the closet.
At the recent Kapow comics convention in London, DC co-publisher Dan DiDio told The Advocate that he’s reversed an early stance on not having one of the major characters in the DC universe be gay as part of the publisher’s reboot. DiDio originally said that he thought it would be better to introduce more gay and bi-sexual characters rather than to have an already established character come out.
He claimed that the company’s about to re-introduce a previously straight character who will become “one of our most prominent gay characters” alongside the likes of Batwoman.
No word yet on which major character DC will choose. You can speculate in the comments below. Please keep the conversation polite.
