DC Comics announced that Jon Kent, who is the son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, will have a romantic relationship with a man. This will make him the first ever bisexual superman.
Jon Kent and a journalist, Jay Nakamura bonded a friendship in the issue of August. The publisher said that they will share a kiss in the comic releasing next month.
DC Comics said “Following a scene where Superman mentally and physically burns out from trying to save everyone that he can, Jay is there to care for the Man of Steel“.
The show writer said that today more people can see themselves in the most powerful superhero in the comics.
As expected, fans took to social media to express their joy after this news. One fan wrote:
“Superman has always been a hero for the time we live in, even in the past, he was seen as the champion of the oppressed, this is no different. A hero for those who need a voice, good on DC Comics for making one of the biggest symbols more relevant than ever”
