Alan Scott Green Lantern - DC Comics

There was a lot of buzz surrounding an announcement that DC Comics’ “New 52” range would feature a gay character. A lot of us were surprised to find that the Justice Society’s Green Lantern would be DC’s new LGBT force to be reckoned with. The character has been around since the Golden Age of comic books, but his new take on a classic character comes from the comic Earth-2, expertly written by James Robinson. He’s a strong and brilliant gay character with a lot of genuine depth that isn’t written with gay stereotypes.
