D.C. comics has now reportedly decided to make one of its trademark characters ‘Superman’ come out as a bisexual.
As The New York Post reports:
Continuing a recent trend of comic book characters coming out as LGBTQ, Superman is now confirmed to be bisexual and on the fight for global social issues, according to the DC team behind the character, who spoke to IGN.
This news is not for the traditional iteration of Clark Kent, but instead his 17-year-old son, Jon, who has taken up his father’s mantle.
DC has confirmed that Jon Kent, Earth's new Superman and the son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, is bisexual, as advance art of Superman: Son of Kal-El #5 sees him share a kiss with new love interest Jay Nakamura. https://t.co/2WKrfW9y1H pic.twitter.com/23RWnhCkcY

“It is a pretty big deal doing it with Jon Kent as Superman … I hope this kind of thing will not be seen as a big deal in the future,” artist John Timms told IGN.
“It will be interesting to see him not only trying to find himself as a person but a global superhero in the complex atmosphere of modern life.”
