Until this year, though, eexceptionally comic iteration of Supermale has actually been besotted via longtime love Lois Lane. But in an upcoming worry of a brand-new "Superman" series, the Man of Steel enters right into a queer relationship.
The fifth issue of the DC comic series "Superman: Son of Kal-El" will certainly confirm that the brand-new Superguy -- Jon Kent, son of Clark Kent and Lane -- is bisex-related after falling for Jay Nakamura, a male reporter, DC announced this week.
The "Superman: Son of Kal-El" series adheres to Kent as he becomes Earth"s brand-new Superman and grapples through the enormous weight of his new gig. Nakamura, a bespectacled writer through a bubble-gum pink mop, first appeared in the series" third issue as a shoulder for Kent to lean on as soon as the company of being Superman gets too turbulent.
That frifinish, it soon came to be clear, was Nakamura. He and Kent are the newest, but much from the only, LGBTQ characters in the DC world -- previously this year, the character Tim Drake, one of the many Robins to fight alongside Batman, welcomed a day from a male admirer. And before Kent and Drake, there was Batwoguy, additionally recognized as Kate Kane, that at one point was punimelted for her connection with an additional woguy under the US military"s former "Don"t Ask, Don"t Tell" policy; Harley Quinn, who"s ditched the Joker for her friend Poichild Ivy in recent comic runs; and also the transsex scientist Victoria October, that debuted in a 2017 Batguy series.
NPR"s Glen Weldon, who"s created a book on Batmale and also on a regular basis writes around comics, shelp that the queering of characters prefer Robin and Superguy is "progress," however bereason the characters that come out are not the canonical iterations of heroes -- Drake isn"t the only Robin in the DC Universe, and Jon Kent"s father will certainly constantly be the best-recognized Superman -- the plot advancements aren"t as substantial or genre-shifting as they seem, Weldon wrote this week.
Still, Weldon sassist, a bisex-related Supermale and queer Robin are worth celebrating -- they"re not a one-dimensional villain or side character who"s conveniently eliminated off, but the "heroes of their very own stories."
