So Alan Scott is gay and I don't give the slightest of fucks. He's an alternate version of an alternate version of a character (depending on your stance on the New 52, since it might just go back to the old universe). So why the b-listers? Sure, it was enough to shut down One Million Mothers somehow but it's utterly meaningless. I guess it was the safe play. I mean, if you make Tim Drake or Dick Grayson gay I guess that sort of opens up a whole can of worms for Batman. Now I'm going to throw the trite and morally upstanding line of "I'm all for gay characters in comics" but in reality, I don't really care. It's great if it comes as part of a well told story (check Ex Machina) rather than what looks to be a marketing response to Marvel's first gay marriage. In any case, I'm just happy that I was able to include Ego the Living Planet in one of the comics.
Deal with it.
