DC Comics’ new Superman just came out as bisexual: ‘Everyone deserves to see themselves in heroes’
DC Comics has revealed that Jon Kent, the Superman of Earth and son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, is bisexual.
When Superman: Son of Kal-El #5 hits the shelves of comic book shops on 9 November, fans will see the younger Kent strike up a friendship, which soon develops into a romance, with reporter Jay Nakamura.
Writer Tom Taylor said: “I’ve always said everyone needs heroes and everyone deserves to see themselves in their heroes and I’m very grateful DC and Warner Bros share this idea.
“Superman’s symbol has always stood for hope, for truth and for justice. Today, that symbol represents something more.
“Today, more people can see themselves in the most powerful superhero in comics.”
