DC comics has been teasing us for weeks with news a super hero would come out as gay, and now we finally know the Green Lantern is gay!

I know, I know. This isn't life or death news here, but for geeks like me who grew up worshiping super heroes this is a big deal. Before today we were left imagining who might or might not be gay. Rumors about Robin were the most common and it would have been easy for them to go in that direction, but honestly I'm a bit surprised by the Green Lantern. I just would never have guessed it.

He is pretty hot though, right?


Are you happy with this choice? What super hero do you wish would come out?
