Who’s coming out in DC???
Last year The Advocate reported, DC Comics co-publisher Dan DiDio saying any additional gay characters in the company’s roster would most likely be new.
“One of the things we’re very focused on doing for these types of [LGBT-inclusive] stories is rather than [change an existing] character, we want to make sure that this is the basis of who that character is right from the start,” he said.
However, it sounds like he and his colleagues have had a change of heart, because Bleeding Cool is reporting that at the Kapow! convention in London this past weekend, DiDio said an established character will soon announce his or her same-sex desires. DiDio stated that they had chosen to change DC’s policy in this regard, and they are about to reintroduce a previously existing DC character who was previously straight and now will be “one of our most prominent gay characters.”
Bob Wayne explained that, just like the President of the United States, the co-publisher’s policy on this “has evolved.”
There’s plenty of speculation among comic fans who it maybe, some are saying Batman’s sidekick Robin, while others are saying Wonder Woman, even some suspect it could be Jimmy Olsen.
Whoever it might be, be prepared for he or she to make quite the impact!
