A new Superman is coming, and even he’s not immune to today’s cultural pressures.
On Monday, DC Comics announced the next iteration of Superman — Jon Kent, the son of Clark Kent — will take a “bold new direction” by coming out as bisexual. Much like his father, who fell in love with reporter Lois Lane, Jon Kent strikes up a romantic relationship with male reporter Jay Nakamura, who “is there to care for the Man of Steel.”
Tom Taylor, the writer of the comic, said “everyone needs heroes and everyone deserves to see themselves in their heroes,” adding he’s “grateful DC and Warner Bros. share this idea.” Source
