YOUNG JUSTICE Showrunner Says Season 3 Will Feature An LGBT Character

YOUNG JUSTICE Showrunner Says Season 3 Will Feature An LGBT Character

Young Justice co-creator Greg Weisman recently responded to fan questions on Twitter, all but confirming that the forthcoming season 3 would feature an LGBT character. Is it an existing or new hero?

After a lengthy break, Young Justice season 3 will be returning for more episodes as confirmed by DC Entertainment.  Though we don't yet know where the new episodes will air, previous statements from the show's producers and voice actors would imply that Netflix is likely the show's new home.  And with the shift from Cartoon Network to Netflix, it seems the show will finally be able to openly depict LGBTQ characters as a series of tweets from co-creator Greg Weisman seem to imply.

However, while initial thoughts would lead most to believe that a new addition to the show would be LGBTQ, Wiseman has previously said that someone already on the show was gay or bisexual but that they couldn't openly depict it due to Cartoon Network guidelines.  If it is an existing character, who do you think it is?  There have been numerous fan theories and debates but Weisman and fellow showrunner Brandon Vietti have never confirmed anything, even when it seemed as if the show's return was never going to happen.
