DC Comics has confirmed that Jon Kent’sSuperman will officially come out as bisexual, in his ongoing series Superman: Son of Kal-El #5, Screen Rant has reported.
DC has revealed that what some fans have suspected for a long time, that Jon Kent was indeed queer.
A future storyline teases a romance with his new friend Jay Nakamura, which is the first queer romance for DC’s newest Superman.
According to Screen Rant, DC Comics revealed that Superman: Son of Kal-El #5 will take the hero in a new direction, as he will officially be confirmed as bisexual in the story by Tom Taylor, John Timms, Gabe Eltaeb, and Dave Sharpe.
Taylor said in a press release that he’s grateful DC Comics and Warner Bros shared a similar mindset about everyone needing to see heroes and representation in comics, and 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.”
Jon Kent was created as DC’s newest Superman after his father Clark Kent left earth in order to stop Mongul and free a group of enslaved people on Warworld.
The torch was then passed to Jon – who has shown he’s the right man for the job since officially getting the mantle.
During his adventures, he met and developed a friendship with a reporter named Jay Nakamura, which will now blossom into a full-blown romance in the upcoming issue of Superman: Son of Kal-El #5.
For those reading the series, his friendship with Jay Nakamura has played a key part in the hero’s adventures as Superman.
Nakamura is a reporter for ‘The Truth,’ which is a social media live-stream news organization featuring stories (from the masked reporter) exposing some of the most underreported, important stories across the world.
Superman took a keen interest in The Truth, which was what brought him closer to Nakamura.
