DC Comics reveals latest Superman as bisexual in new issue
The Man of Steel will be in a same-sex relationship while combatting the climate crisis and protesting against the deportation of refugees

Jonathan Kent, the new iteration of Superman, is bisexual, according to DC Comics.

The traditionally heterosexual superhero will embark on a same-sex relationship with a friend in a new comic. Kent, who is the son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, started his tenure in July.

“The idea of replacing Clark Kent with another straight white savior felt like a missed opportunity,” Tom Taylor, the series writer, said in an interview with the New York Times.

His new love interest is Jay Nakamura, a reporter who cares for him after he “mentally and physically burns out from trying to save everyone that he can” in an issue of Superman: Son of Kal-El #5, to be released in November. Nakamura is also revealed to have special powers.

Kent’s sexuality is not the only way in which the character has been updated for a new audience and time. Recent issues have seen him protesting against the deportation of refugees, stopping a high school shooting and trying to put out wildfires that were the cause of the climate crisis.

“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,” said Taylor in a statement. “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.”

The news follows other recent attempts to add ****ness to the world of comics. In August, it was announced that the latest version of Robin would have a boyfriend while in March, Marvel also made the decision to pass the mantle of Captain America to a gay character.

But the big-screen worlds of Marvel and DC remain less progressive. Tessa Thompson’s character in Thor: Ragnarok was only revealed as bisexual in a tweet while Deadpool’s sexual fluidity has yet to be fully explored. This November’s Eternals is set to change things with the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first LGBTQ+ kiss between Brian Tyree Henry’s Phastos, the first openly gay superhero in a Marvel movie, and Haaz Sleiman, who plays his husband.

Report edy October 12, 2021 1:54 PM BST
No need for all caps, is there? By getting it on I meant kissing or otherwise a showing of affection. Maybe they got sexually explicit too, wouldn't really know. Never read a superhero comic book in all me life. If Clark Kent can be all loving towards Louis Lane, then his son can get all loving towards his Jay.

If you don't feel like answering the kissing question:

GET ON WITH as you call it with each other , You or I  would not be here

Are you one of those people afraid of humanity dying out if children see that it is ok hug and kiss a man? Imagine yourself....I assume you are somewhat straight. If you had been taught that same sex relationships are ok instead of an abomination, would that have made you all gay? If so, do you honestly think the same would have largely applied to the rest of your generation.

I have given you my answer EDY , its a comic book there is a time and place for sex education ,NOT IN COMIC books imo

You have strictly evaded a whole bunch of questions.

1 in 20 people in the states are gay , why is there a need for their son to be gay ? and 7 year olds to be reading about it ?

Mostly because there are still some total weirdos about who seem to get offended by a comic book potentially going as far as showing that it's ok for a man to like another man.

One of the questions you evaded earlier: Why, exactly, are you of the opinion that showing opposite sex affection is perfectly ok, but showing same sex affection is not?

Which leads to another question you evaded: Are you one of those people who are afraid of everybody becoming gay and humanity dying out if children see in their comic books that it's ok for people of the same sex to be affectionate towards each other?

So the primary problem is that you think non-graphic, non-explicit showings of same sex affection should be strictly for sex education and children of younger ages must not know or ever encounter same sex affection?

....My sex education lessons in school were more into the advanced matters if I remember correctly.

Regardless of this being a disingenuous question from your side with no real interest: Plenty, judging by google results. They are even seen kissing passionately on many covers! ON COVERS! Three year olds can see that!

An assortment of covers with Superman kissing Lois Lane (and I think others....the old slimeball!) can be seen at e.g

There are different worlds living side by side and often overlapping. Should a minority interest prevail in kids literature or should it wait until they are more mature? There are plenty of examples of alternative lifestyles in literature for adults which people can discover at leisure. All kids have parents, some of whom still cohabit {at one time they virtually all did) so a kiss between parents would not shock whereas the sight of two males kissing intimately might. I'm not sure it's a good move by the publisher, it's doubtful in my mind that it will increase long term sales.

Why would it shock? It's two folks kissing. Children don't see it as foreplay to coitus or anything like that. There's lots of mothers that kiss their daughters. Lots of fathers and grandfathers that kiss their sons/grandsons. Lots of siblings that smooch each other. Folks who kiss their dogs and cats without it leading to beastiality (most of the time anyway...), but two grown men kissing is suddenly the weirdest, most sexualised thing in the world to children that shocks and sends them straight to therapy?
