DC’s “Prominent Gay Character” Is Going To Be Alan Scott. Well There’s That.

DC’s “prominent character” that is going to be reintroduced into the New 52 as gay turns out to be Alan Scott, the original Green Lantern.

Bleeding Cool:

A few days ago, I ran semi-sourced stories indicating that the character who DC Comics announced as being reintroduced to the New 52 DC Universe as a gay man, was Alan Scott, the original Green Lantern, who appeared in  Earth 2  #1 briefly,

Well, at Phoenix Comic Con, I had a much stronger source confirm to me that, yes, it is indeed Alan Scott. On that basis I feel confident in calling it. Keep your  Earth 2#1 in good nick, and start queuing up for  Earth 2  #2… right about now.

Thoughts? Opinions? Ennui?
