Original Green Lantern Alan Scott comes out as homosexual in upcoming issue of "Earth 2".
When DC Comics teased last week that, “One of the major iconic DC characters will reveal that he is gay in a storyline in June,” rumors started popping up across the internet that Golden Age Green Lantern Alan Scott would be the character to come out. Today, DC Comics has confirmed that the newly reintroduced Alan Scott's is indeed the newest superhero to join the ranks of other homosexual comic book characters. The story of Alan Scott and his sexual orientation will be told in the pages of the upcoming "Earth 2" Issue #2 by James Robinson and Nicola Scott. It should be noted that while the superhero was first introduced in 1940, Alan Scott along with several other comic book characters in the mainstay DC Comics are being introduced as part of "The New 52", DC's reboot and revamp of the entire fictional universe which started last year and now they're rebooting Earth 2 for a new audience of comic book readers.
