He's Back ...
AND HE'S FABULOUS!!!
BREAKING NEWS

The Green Lantern has been rebooted -- he's young again, and he's gay.

DC Comics just announced which character is coming out of the closet, and it's Alan Scott, aka the Green Lantern. 

In his prior life, Green Lantern -- on Earth 2 (in an alternate universe) -- was married with 2 superhero kids.  But now he's come back as an unmarried, media mogul who we're sure throws amazing Hollywood parties.  He's also a Type-A.  Sound like anyone you've heard of???

But here's the thing ... we smell tokenism. Fictional fact is there are more than 7,200 Green Lanterns in DC's comic book world -- so adding ONE gay lantern, in an alternate universe no less, suddenly seems less impressive.
