Out, out and away! – for Superman on National Coming Out Day.
Jon Kent, the son of original Superman Clark Kent and journalist Lois Lane, turns out to be bisexual in DC Comics’ latest iteration of the superhero’s adventures.
The young man kisses reporter Jay Nakamura in issue five of the comic book “Superman: Son of Kal-El,” which will be released on November 9.
“It’s not a gimmick,” the writer, Tom Taylor, said in an interview from Melbourne, Australia, wearing a T-shirt with a rainbow-striped Superman logo.
“When I was offered this job, I thought, ‘Well, if we’re going to have a new Superman for the DC Universe, it feels like a missed opportunity to have another straight white savior,” he said.
National Coming Out Day is observed on October 11 to support lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
“We didn’t want this to be ‘DC Comics creates new queer Superman,'” Taylor said. “We want this to be ‘Superman finds himself, becomes Superman and then comes out,’ and I think that’s a really important distinction there.”
Reactions have been mostly positive, Taylor said.
