As Marvel Comics plans for the June wedding of openly gay Astonishing X-Men superhero Northstar to his longtime human companion Kyle, DC Comics co-publisher Dan DiDio told attendees at the Kapow Comic Convention in London that the company is
about to reintroduce a previously existing DC character who was previously straight and now will be “one of our most prominent gay characters.”
DC already has a large number of LGBT characters including superheroines Batwoman and The Question, superhero couple Apollo and Midnighter, and bisexual Voodoo.
But who will come out of the closet? We may have to wait until September to find out, but oh that will make Halloween so much more fun!
