  1. As soon as I saw it was the original Green Lantern, I imagined DC parading him around for a few issues and then having whomever they intend to be the “real” Green Lantern of the New 52 show up and get rid of him somehow.

  2. Todd Maxwell says:

    Pre new-52 his son Todd was gay. Now we know why. It’s not biological or a lifestyle choice. If your Father is gay in an alternate re-boot universe you’ll inherit his gayness. Maybe that’s why his daughter has green skin too. ;^)

    • Mike Gold says:

      Todd, you might have spent a bit too much time reading quantum physics textbooks. She-Hulk has green skin, ergo, the Ultimate Bruce Banner is gay?

      Well, maybe.

      • Jonathan (the other one) says:

        Well, the bits of Ultimate Hulk I’ve read certainly make it sound like he’s compensating for something…

        I presume the reboot Alan Scott will have a different costume, though – there is absolutely no way any self-respecting gay man is going to be running around in a red shirt, green pants, and a yellow-and-purple cape…

        • Mike Gold says:

          Hmmm. I’ll bet you’re off on that one. Drop by Manhattan’s Greenwich Village this Halloween. I wouldn’t be surprised to see several Alan Scotts.

  3. Bob Kahan says:

    So I have to ask…if Green Lantern Alan Scott is gay, will his ring still be powerless against wood?

    • Mike Gold says:

      That would be a problem either way, Bob. Although, if the ring could work up a big hammer…

  4. An online friend of mine thinks that a variant cover of “The Astonishing X-Men” with Northstar and Kyle about to kiss with all of the X-Men standing around teary-eyed was basically one step above hardcore porn.

    I don’t understand his “logic” (and I use the word logic very loosely here) on that. I think he’s a just another closeted homophobe.

    • Mike Gold says:

      I guess there’s two ways to look at this. Perhaps your online friend is really into hardcore porn and he wishes Marvel took it further.

      Or perhaps your online friend is just a creep.

    • Doesn’t sound very closeted to me if he’s sharing that opinion.

      Is a heterosexual coupling kissing “one step above hardcore porn”?

  5. Bytowner says:

    Sooner or later, I suspect that “original” Alan Scott and “New52” Alan Scott will have a canon-sanctioned meeting. That will be entertaining.

    Good thing Martin Nodell passed away before GL went the Gay Way…..cause this would have killed that cretor even earlier !

    • Mike Gold says:

      I’m not sure that would have been the case. I knew Marty pretty well, and I think he probably would have been confused by the whole “alternate universe” thing. As opposed to the last alternate universe thing.

      Marty’s wife, though, probably would have had a harder time.
