Just when we thought we knew just about everything there is to know about our favorite superheros, DC Comics has just thrown us for a bit of a loop. A positive loop, but still a loop nonetheless.
It’s true, everyone deserves a superhero, and now Superman is here to represent.
DC Comics has announced that in the new comics, Superman is going to come out as bisexual, and we are here for it!
Technically, it’s not SUPERMAN Superman. THIS Superman is Jon, the son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane. He is the Superman of Earth.
“I’ve always said everyone needs heroes and everyone deserves to see themselves in their heroes and I’m very grateful DC and Warner Bros. share this idea,” said writer Tom Taylor. “Superman’s symbol has always stood for hope, for truth and for justice. Today, that symbol represents something more. Today, more people can see themselves in the most powerful superhero in comics.”DC Comics Statement
SUPERMAN: SON OF KAL-EL #5 is coming out soon.
The new comic book will be available at stores starting on November 9th, and you are going to want to get this momentous copy!
Jon is going to get burned out from trying to save the world. Reporter, Jay Nakamura, is going to step in to comfort and care for him.
“We couldn’t be prouder to tell this important story from Tom Taylor and John Timms,” said DC Chief Creative Officer and Publisher Jim Lee. “We talk a lot about the power of the DC Multiverse in our storytelling and this is another incredible example. We can have Jon Kent exploring his identity in the comics as well as Jon Kent learning the secrets of his family on TV on Superman & Lois. They coexist in their own worlds and times, and our fans get to enjoy both simultaneously.”DC Comics Statement
SUPERMAN: SON OF KAL-EL #5 takes place in the MAIN continuity of the DC Multiverse. This is the universe in which Jon and Jay get together.
