New Superman comes out as bisexual
A romance is teased in the future storyline between Superman and his new friend Jay Nakamura. This will be the first new romance after the superhero comes out as bisexual person. Jon Kent became the newest Superman when his father, Clark Kent have to leave earth to stop a Mongul and free a group of people who were enslaved on Warworld. He passed the touch to Jon because Jon has proved he is the right man for the job by officially getting the mantle.
During his adventure, the new Superman developed a friendship with a reporter, Jay. Since Superman will come out now, he will have a full-blown romance with his friend in the upcoming issue of Superman: Son of Kal-El #5 that will release in November.
In that issue, the superhero will confirm that he is bisexual. The story is by John Timms, Tom Taylor, Dave Sharpe, and Gabe Eltaeb. The romance of Superman and Jay will have a natural evolution. Superman: Son of Kal-El will feature three covers from Tamra Bonvillain, Travis Moore, and Inhyuk Lee.
In a press release, Taylor said that he is grateful that Warner Bros. and DC Comics shared a similar mindset regarding everyone needing to see heroes and representation in the comics. He said
“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.”
The CEO and Chief Creative Officer, and Publisher of DC Comics, also spoke about the bisexual angle. He said that he could not be prouder of Timm and Taylor’s story. He stated that the DC multiverse allows all distinct types of storytelling and called the news “another incredible example” of the storytelling medium.
Superman is not the only bisexual superhero. Tim Drake was confirmed as bisexual person in the
recent Batman: Urban Legends story as well.
