The New Superman is Bisexual
Superman has made an impact in the movie and film industry, and DC comics announced some important news. John Kent, son of the original Clark Kent and Lois Lane, will be featuring a bisexual Superman in their upcoming comic book. On Nov. 9, the fifth issue of the DC comic series Superman: Son of Kal El is set to release and take set at the start of a new romantic love story.
“Superman’s symbol has always been a symbol of hope, truth, and justice. But now, it represents even more. Today, more people can relate to the mighty superhero of comic books,” stated writer Tom Taylor. Fans were thrilled, while the news surprised and let down some fans, including rapper 50 Cent.
50 Cent Trolls The New Superhero
For the rapper, Superman being bisexual was something he could not keep to himself, but instead let the world know. 50 cent goes to post his unwarranted opinion on Instagram a day after the comic book was released.
“Oh s***, the world is coming to an end! Who did this to Super Man, so now he like Lois Lane and Larry… ain’t this a bitch!”
The post is now taken down; however, the rapper’s statement made headlines, but not enough to overshadow DC comics courageous decision.
On Monday, October 11, which is recognized as Coming Out Day, Mr. Taylor tweeted, “Everyone deserves to see themselves in their heroes. Today, #Superman, the strongest superhero, reveals he is bisexual.” What are your thoughts on this new storyline? Do you find it relatable to the current era?
