This weekend, at Kapow! in London, DC Comics co-publisher, Dan DiDio announced that the company will reintroduce a previously existing DC character who was straight and will now be “one of our most prominent gay characters.”
Why the sudden switch? Not too long ago, DiDio did an interview with The Advocate stating they weren’t going to change any character’s sexual orientations during the DC relaunch. Looks like time has changed the way the company thinks.
The big question now, is what character DC will change, and if that character is really that prominent. Did Grant Morrison give everyone a heads up in his recent Playboy article, or will the company select a known name in the DCU who isn’t a prominent hero?
