In shocking news from KAPOW Comics Convention, Dan Didio has promised to out a prominent gay character in the nuDCU!
When DC Comics decided to reboot the DC Universe last year, provoking a torrent of crybabying from fanboys worldwide but also boosting sales, the company's glorious leader Dan Didio promised that no existing characters would have their sexual orientation changed. For instance, the company wouldn't introduce the new Green Lantern as a homosexual, or the new Batman as straight. However, Didio has changed his stance on this matter, and has declared at KAPOW, a comic convention that took place in the UK this weekend, that a formerly straight character would be revealed as gay in the coming months.
There is some disagreement among fans as to whether the character will be one that has already debuted in the DCU, such as Wonder Woman, or one who has not yet appeared, such as a recognizable Superman. The Outhouse reached out to Didio to ask him to clarify, but he would only respond, cryptically, "Do you seriously think I would explain my master stroke to you if there were even the slightest possibility you could affect the outcome?" In any case, Mitt Romney voters will be pleased to know that Dan Didio and the rest of the DC brass will not rest until they have exposed this character's private sexual preferences to the world.
