DC Comics reveals that Superman Jon Kent is Bisexual via new covers and interior art
There’s a bit of buzz right now in the comics scene with DC Comics hyping up upcoming issues of the new Superman book called Superman: Son of Kal-El #5 written by Tom Taylor with art by John Timms.
In the upcoming issue of Son of Kal-El, we find Jonathan Kent aka Jon Kent giving in to his feelings for the reporter Jay Nakamura; much like how his father developed romantic feelings for his mother, Lois Lane.
In a statement from Tom Taylor, he was quoted saying:
“I’ve always said everyone needs heroes and everyone deserves to see themselves in their heroes and I’m very grateful DC and Warner Bros. share this idea. 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.”
Jim Lee also spoke about this recent development and glorious coming out by the teenage Kryptonian.
“We couldn’t be prouder to tell this important story from Tom Taylor and John Timms. We talk a lot about the power of the DC Multiverse in our storytelling and this is another incredible example. We can have Jon Kent exploring his identity in the comics as well as Jon Kent learning the secrets of his family on TV on Superman & Lois. They coexist in their own worlds and times, and our fans get to enjoy both simultaneously.”
