DC has outed the eight “official” LGBTQIA characters in the DC universe! I will give the backstory of each character in the ad for DC super PRIDE which is a movement in the order they appear in the ad visually. From right to left, first row, we have Superman’s son Jon Kent and the successor to dad who is cool with Jon’s alternate lifestyle. Not are what Lois Lane thinks since she is the mother of Jon Kent. Pa Ken and Ma Kent are around these days. Ma and Pa Kent are of course grandparents of Jon Kent.
Nubia (DC) replaces Hippolyta was the Queen of the Amazons and was replaced as queen by Nubia! The Amazons have pride AND diversity AND no glass ceiling with Nubia as queen!
The grandson of the Flash is Bart Allen. Bart Allen has taken up the mantle of the Kid Flash is a male homosexual in a committed relationship with a character named Eduardo.
The son of Black Manta, that is African American becomes the new Aquaman and combines the functions of racial AND LGBT diversity. The new Aquaman has a relationship with a Atlantean man.
Green Lantern is now both African-American and female and gay. Three checklist items with one character! The original Green Lantern, Alan Scott is a long-time male homosexual character in DC.
Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy are in a committed relationship and were pioneers of LGBT topics in the DC universe. The romantic relationship between Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy is developed more fully in Harley Quinn the animated series in seasons 2&3! The commercial success of Harley Quinn animated series probably got DCs attention.
Batwoman has a dominatrix vibe like Catwoman. Catwoman does scratch her lover Batman now and then. Meow! Will keep an eye on Batwoman and let my fans know if there are any whips or chains in the future of Batwoman! So far nothing but wasn’t looking as I am now. Kate Kane is actually Bruce Wayne’s cousin who, like Bruce, lost her sister and mother when she was young. She ended up attending a military school where she was poised to become a high-ranking officer in the military. However, after rumors of her relations with a fellow female officer, she ended up leaving the military due to their “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.
