The news comes from former DC Comics artist Ethan Van Sciver who has been right about the direction of DC Comics in the past.
“DC Comics has had a lot of problems maintaining the trademark for Superman because you know, he’s old. He’s an old character, and the family would desperately like money because their family, their ancestors who created Superman got completely f’d over,” said Van Sciver. “I mean Superman has made billions and billions and billions of dollars in revenue and those two boys who made up Superman got ‘bupkis,’ they were Jewish, so they got ‘bupkis,’ they got nothing. Clark Kent I guess is going bye-bye and they are going to replace him with Jonathan Kent, and then they are going to announce that Jonathan Kent is gay. So Superman is effectively gay, everyone. He is gay.”
The former Green Lantern artist also said it will happen in the pages of Tom Taylor’s Superman comic book, Superman: Son of Kal-El, which was recently launched in July.
OF COURSE! Hey Comic Book writers… here’s a heads up. I NEVER, in my 40 years of comic book reading, have EVER cared about romance, who-is-dating-who or what. Comic books are made for BOYS and BOYS at heart (and SOME girls.) This is not a fucking Y.A. book. You want to make a gay character? Fine. WHY DO I HAVE TO KNOW? Am I gonna see bare buts of boys in beds? WHO WANTS TO SEE THAT? Dammit. Now I’m gonna have to start my podcast again!
