I don’t understand why everyone is complaining that making Alan Scott a gay character is a publicity stunt. There really is no basis or facts to back that up, so please don’t use that as an excuse to hate on DC. Gail Simone her self said that Dan Didio sincerely believes in bringing more gay characters to main stream media, and he has a real heart for the issue. I’ve also heard that people are upset because “why can’t DC just focus on the gay characters they have? Why do they have to add more?” I’m sorry but those two are not mutually exclusive. If they can nurture their existing straight characters all the while introducing new straight characters, than they can do the same for gay characters.
And didn’t everyone complain about the same thing when Batwoman was announced as a lesbian? And now we all love her. What’s the difference?
