Anybody remember this from the old thread "Mystery super-gay due to emerge from closet"?

Well, guess what Bleeding Cool recently ran?

There's a VERY small hint in the GL special issue. Not even sure it is what people think. Vague.

That was mentioned (with some panels from the issue shown) in the Bleeding Cool post.

Really not happy about this. Why can't they just give us our characters back, without changing their established histories?

Mild "tweaks" would be one thing, but this ain't a "little" change.

As I've said elsewhere, if they want a gay hero back in the 1940s, they should revive All-Star Squadron and create one there, like they did when they gave us a black "Golden Age" hero in Amazing Man. Hell, they could even take a Golden Age hero who had very little exposure back then and have that hero replaced by a gay successor.

But DC doesn't give a hoot about what I would like them to do . . .

In terms of what they're likely to do with the little they showed, I think it is small. In that it looked to be merely a hint, with no background, and I'd bet it was meant connect to the E2 version without really changing the GA version. Or, rather, the modern version of the GA version. Or whatever this is.

If they are in any way, shape, or form implying that Golden Age Alan Scott was gay, that changes the character. No ifs, ands, or buts about that, even if it doesn't play a major part in any immediate storyline (when DC bothers to use the JSA in a story).

At least, that's how I feel about it. That's not something that was "hinted at" during all the years prior to the disappearance of the JSA in the New52, so there's no need to retroactively make a revision like that now.

That's my feeling, too. But, I guess we'll just have to wait and see how it plays out.

I completely agree with you guys, these retcon things usually are an epic fail, not only in comics, especially when they want to promote the "politically correct"...
