Superman will allegedly come out as gay.
According to unconfirmed reports, the existing Superman, Clark Kent, will die and his son with Lois Lane, Jon Kent, will take on the mantle of Superman.
He will come out in a forthcoming issue of the DC comic Superman: Son of Kal-El.
Former DC Comics artist Ethan Van Sciver said on YouTube: “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.”
If this is true, it will mean that the character will be following the example of Tim Drake, Batman’s sidekick Robin, who also recently came out as bisexual.
Superman: Son of Kal-El is available from all good comic book outlets.
