The Green Lantern is back . . . and Gay!

DC Comics has rebooted The Green Lantern comic book franchise. He’s back and gay (not that there’s anything wrong with that)! DC has revamped the superhero, making him younger and attracted to the same-sex.

In his prior life, the Green Lantern lived on Earth 2 (in an alternative universe) where he was married with two superhero kids. Now, he’s come back as an unmarried media mogul. A lot of people are criticizing DC Comics claiming this is all a big act of tokenism. Reason being is there are 7,200 Green Lantern’s in DC’s comic book world, so by adding one gay Lantern seems less impressive. Who would have thought a guy who has a love for tights and gets super powers from jewelry would end up being gay?

Fun Fact: The Green Lantern’s Achilles heel is wood. True Story.
