green lantern alan scott one weakness was wood,i bet his pleased about that now.
zmikey - 5/27/2012, 1:28 PM
So... the "major character" that they're made gay is in Earth 2? ... Wow, DC, I thought you were actually gonna do a game-changer. I mean, a non-comic reader doesn't even know about Earth 2, so how is making a semi-popular character gay in a different universe a game-changer?
MrXer0 - 5/27/2012, 1:30 PM
Knew it'd be Alan Scott.
ThatOneDude - 5/27/2012, 1:31 PM
Just...no

Makes sense. Now just convert that into a successful movie franchise outside a 'Superman and Batman', bee888tches.
CaptainObvious - 5/27/2012, 1:36 PM
But doesn't he have a daughter?
Fantine - 5/27/2012, 1:36 PM
Like in everything it shouldn't matter to anyone who Alan Scott goes home to at night. It's his super powers and adventures that matter in the comics.

And with a string gay suicides across the world recently, this can be only a good thing.

Bravo, DC.

@ teabag

XD hahahahaha

i tried to avoid the ring joke,but they're still classics.

alan scott gonna have a new nickname "frodo" not because of his size but he looks like someone who's had their ring destroyed. :P
Fantine - 5/27/2012, 1:37 PM
The pink lantern symbol is also little offensive Josh, you wouldn't put a black one if a new African American Lantern was introduced.
beetheb - 5/27/2012, 1:39 PM
They should've went all the way and made him a gay black midget, hit all the liberal P.C. bases. Wait, sorry, I meant a homosexual african-american little person.
SHHH - 5/27/2012, 1:40 PM
So Sad.....
BlindLemonShemp - 5/27/2012, 1:42 PM
what the hell? ALAN SCOTT?! Way to [frick] over the Silver Age DC, you ignorant [foo foo]s...

now i hate all gays, they're guilty by association to this travesty... how's that for creating tolerance, DC?

douchebag asshole hacks...
SHHH - 5/27/2012, 1:44 PM
Keep The Pink Logo @Josh... Can't Please Everyone....
95 - 5/27/2012, 1:44 PM
Oh... well, then... I don't care.

Cool Alan Scott art, though.
bryanvman - 5/27/2012, 1:44 PM
THIS IS THE DUMBEST THING EVER! WHAT ABOUT JADE?!?!?!?
WHY OH WHY OH WHY!!?!?!?! GAYS..... STUPIDEST THING EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
95 - 5/27/2012, 1:45 PM
Yeah, the Pink Lantern is funny as hell.
marvel72 - 5/27/2012, 1:45 PM
@ teabag

question will he keep the green ring or go with for the new brown one?
SuperSomething616 - 5/27/2012, 1:46 PM
So does this mean we wont see Jade or Obsidian anytime soon? What a cock...I mean crock!!! Lol
TonyChu - 5/27/2012, 1:47 PM
@ marvel72 I cant tell you how much I laughed about that wood joke. It makes so much sense now!
PiscinaMuerta - 5/27/2012, 1:47 PM
Lmfao @ Kes
marvel72 - 5/27/2012, 1:50 PM

Making an old guy gay is the easiest cop-out. You never have to show an old guy in a relationship, let alone one with any kind of physicality to it.
Ha1frican - 5/27/2012, 1:51 PM
I feel like making a character that hasn't been gay all along gay is very risky. You risk screwing with people's preconceived notions of characters they have felt attached to for a long time. If it's done tastefully it could be very compelling but if it's just a gimmick it will show and people will be PISSED
JayJayCAW - 5/27/2012, 1:53 PM
this is so [frick]ing stupid, what happens to Jade and Obsidian now?

If they were going to make anyone gay it should have been Jay Garrick cause he never had a family really, not one of his own that would make complications like Scott is having.
GuardianAngel - 5/27/2012, 1:53 PM
phew!I was getting scared they would go for someone like Batman. IDGAF about Alan Scott.
DeskTopHero - 5/27/2012, 1:54 PM
That's so gay.
4000dvds2many - 5/27/2012, 1:57 PM
Well, so much for Jade and Obsidian existing in the new 52, I guess. And I was holding out hope that since Huntress is Helena Wayne again, that Infinity Inc. would show up eventually.
Gyasiman - 5/27/2012, 1:57 PM
Thank. God. I thought its was gonna be Wally west or captain marvel. Thankfully it's someone I don't really care about.
SHHH - 5/27/2012, 1:57 PM
marvel72 - 5/27/2012, 1:59 PM
the avengers is kicking ass at the box office & alan scott will soon be f*cking ass. :P
4000dvds2many - 5/27/2012, 2:01 PM
Oh yeah, and all these nasty comments are ridiculous to say the least. You can disagree with the choice without being a dickhead. You know, it's not only fat nerd losers who drool over every cosplay bimbo who read this site.
Ghostfire - 5/27/2012, 2:09 PM
@Durf
You're on a roll today bud! keep it up!

@Tea
Funny shit dude!
Deadpool101 - 5/27/2012, 2:13 PM
OK I have had enough with this explosion of gay comic stuff as a publicity stunt ... like I dont care if he is gay, I just dont understand how that should be the main focus on the character as a whole. Alan scott is a cool character dont care what he does in the bedroom.
jazzman - 5/27/2012, 2:16 PM
@marvel72

EPIC WIN on the wood joke lol
johnnysnow - 5/27/2012, 2:16 PM
@MrCrowley - reread your post and tell me you didn't make a mistake.

@Marvel71 - his pleased? does that make sense to you?

@Mothra - you may be the only non-idiot here

@teabag - knees*, and you're also not a complete ass for not being a bigot

@Braniac3000 - did what you posted make sense in your head?

@CaptainObvious - Elton John has a kid, too.

@Catwoman1 - bravo

@beetheb - should've gone*

@bryanvman - the universe will get you back for that stupidity
