DC Comics will make Superman gay in an unexpected shake-up, and fans are overjoyed

    DC Comics is preparing to make Superman gay – and it’s partly down to longstanding trademark issues, according to unconfirmed reports.

    The claim was made by former DC Comics artist Ethan Van Sciver, who is often considered controversial in comic book circles for his involvement in Comicsgate.

    Van Sciver made the claim in a livestream on YouTube on Thursday (19 August) titled “SUPERMAN IS GAY! Shocking DC Comics SCOOP!!”

    “I just found out, I got a little bit of a scoop about what DC’s plans are,” Van Sciver said.

    “Nobody knows this, yet. It hasn’t really been announced, except by me. The plan is that… Superman’s book… I guess Clark Kent is going bye-bye.”

    Van Sciver went on to tell DC Comics fans that the company has had issues with the trademark for Superman in the past.

    Their solution, Van Sciver claimed, is that DC Comics is going to kill the original Superman character Clark Kent off in an upcoming comic.

    Superman will then reportedly be replaced with Jonathan Kent, Clark Kent’s son, who will later be revealed to be gay, according to Van Sciver.

    “So Superman is effectively gay, everyone. He is gay.”

    Superman’s ‘gay son’ inherited his father’s ‘powers and abilities’

    Van Sciver said Clark Kent’s son will come out as gay in Tom Taylor’s series Superman: Son of Kal-El, which launched in July.

    According to DC Comics official description of Jonathan Kent – which was shared by Comic Book News – Superman’s son has inherited his father’s “powers and abilities”.

    “Parental legacies are hard to live up to – especially when your parents are Superman and Lois Lane,” the description reads.

    “And Jon Kent is the child of two worlds. Half Kryptonian and half human, the onset of his superpowers has made him eager to follow in his dad’s footsteps.

    “But Jon has a lot to learn about himself and about the world before he can make a habit of saving it.”

    The reports – which remain unconfirmed – come just weeks after Batman’s sidekick Robin was revealed to be bisexual.

    Robin – also known as Tim Drake – came out as bisexual and got a date in a recent issue of Batman: Urban Legends #6, and queer fans were overjoyed.

    I knew before even reading the article that it would just be a different version of the character. They always do this in comics. Like when they announced 'Thor is going to become a girl!' Totally not what happened. It was a new hero who inherited the powers of Thor but just happened to be a woman. The original Thor was still male.

    Just like the original Superman is still straight.

    To be honest I not really surprised. Was a matter of time. Guess the S don't mean "straight" then.

    That's a good example of how male beauty standards have shifted over the decades. Walk into any gay bar on a Friday night and 80% of the guys in there will be more ripped than that.

    He hasn't worked at DC for years. Why should I believe he knows these deep company secrets of what's happening in the future?

    They sort of made the main stream Supes gay back in 1997 in Supergirl #79 he got exposed to Pink Kryptonite and started making advances towards Jimmy.
    That being said when I read the headline assumed it would be either Elseworld story or another member of Super Family probably a new or newer character.

    I remember a comedy TV show in Australia (Fast Forward) where there was a Superman sketch, where he was made out gay as he shows a interest in Jimmy. But that was for laughs.
