Time to shatter that Fortress of Solitude. At the recent Kapow Comic Book Conference, DC Comics co-publisher Dan DiDio stated that a “prominent” DC Comic book character will soon come out of the closet.

Bleeding Cool reports:

One question asked at the DC panel [at] Kapow, was about Dan’s interview with The Advocate in the USA. Specifically over the decision not to change any character’s sexual orientation when relaunching the DC Universe. At the time Dan stated they would introduce new LGBT characters rather than switch orientation, but the question asked why DC would switch race, size, age, all sorts of identifying features, but not orientation.

Surprisingly, DiDio stated that they had changed DC’s policy in this regard. And they ae about to reintroduce a previously existing DC character who was previously straight and now will be “one of our most prominent gay characters.”

As Bob Wayne explained that, just like the President of the United States, the co-publisher’s policy on this “has evolved.”

 

Wonder Woman your time has come!
