Superman Comes Out

Does every superhero have to have homosexual tendencies?  Not that I’m complaining.  Sure, they’ve got perfect, rippling bodies that they exhibit in form-fitting spandex, Lycra, or some other kind of fishnet stocking.  But I’m sure some straight guys could fall into that category – although none immediately spring to mind.  The latest superhero joining our ranks is Superman.  No, not the classic Superman.  We’re talking about Jon Kent, the son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane.  Funny, I always thought he was Superboy – but I suppose that’s a moniker that doesn’t have a long shelf life.  Here’s what DC Comics said: “Following a scene where Superman mentally and physically burns out from trying to save everyone he can, Jay is there to care for the Man of Steel.”  Jay is Jay Nakamura, a longtime friend of the superlad.  The twosome share a kiss next month.

Not everyone is applauding this news.  Dean Cain, who played Superman in the ‘90s, happened to be on Fox & Friends when the story broke.  “They said it’s a bold new direction.  I say they’re bandwagoning.”  He continued, “If they had done this 20 years ago, perhaps that would have been bold or brave.  But brave would be having him fight for the rights of gay people in Iran where they’ll throw you off a building for the offense of being gay.”  While I’m sympathetic to oppressed people, I don’t know if they even have comic books in Iran.  Certainly not comic books with gay superheroes!
