Green Lantern gay rumors confirmed

DC Comics confirms rumors that the Green Lantern will be relaunched as gay
Alan Scott aka The Green Lantern will come out as gay in next issue

DC Comics have confirmed rumors that the orginal Green Lantern, Alan Scott, will be rebooted as gay.

Fans were already told that a major character would be outed this month and comics site Bleeding Cool speculated this week that it would be the twice-married superhero, Lantern.

However, instead of the character publicly announcing his sexuality, his back story will be completely rewritten to suggest he was always gay.

The new out and proud Green Lantern will first appear in next week's issue of Earth 2.

It is not the first time the character has been reinvented.

Alan Scott was introduced in 1940 but his adventures ceased some time after WWII when comic books declined in popularity.

The character was revived in 1959 but this time his alter-ego was Hal Jordan. Subsequent alter-egos include Guy Gardner, John Stewart, Kyle Rayner and Sinestro.

It was Hal Jordan who actor Ryan Reynolds portrayed in the 2011 Green Lantern feature film which grossed about $220 million ($170,450,000 £143,600,000) worldwide.

DC Comics relaunched Green Lantern with issue #1 in September 2011 as part of the company wide relaunch. This new series stars both Jordan and Sinestro as Green Lanterns.

The news about Green Lantern comes as Marvel Comics character, Northstar, will be marrying his boyfriend in an upcoming issue of Astonishing X-Men. Northstar proposes in the current issue.

This would not be the first time the Green Lantern franchise has had a gay storyline either.

More than 10 years ago, Judd Winick, who first gained attention as a cast member of MTV’s The Real World: San Francisco, won a GLAAD Media Award for writing a Green Lantern storyline in which an assistant of Kyle Rayner’s emerged as a gay character in Green Lantern #137 (June 2001).

In Green Lantern #154 (November 2001) the story entitled Hate Crime gained media recognition when the assistant, Terry, was brutally beaten in a homophobic attack.

Green Lantern possesses a power ring and a power lantern that gives the user great control over the physical world as long as the wielder has sufficient willpower and strength to wield it. The ring is one of the most powerful weapons in the universe and can be very dangerous.

Watch Ryan Reynolds as the Green Lantern in the movie trailer below:
