DC Comics Teases Reveal Of Openly Gay Superhero

And not some half-formed, new hero to appease their diversifying audience. Who in the DC stable of characters do you think is the most likely candidate?

Over the weekend, at the Kapow Comic Convention in London, DC announced they were reversing their position in regards to changing the sexual orientation of established characters, citing President Obama as their inspiration.

Co-Publisher Dan DiDio was quoted as saying an established character would become “one of our most prominent gay characters.”

Leave your speculation as to who it might be in the comments!

UPDATE! DC’s Senior VP of Publicity confirmed to ABC News that, “One of the major iconic DC characters will reveal that he is gay in a storyline in June.”
