It would be so bogus if it is Alan Scott. They have sold it as a major Icon. I never even hear of the guy until I switched from Marvel to DC. A major Icon is someone who even those who dont read would know exist. Whether his name is Green Lantern or not, he is not the Icon Green Lantern. But it would be smart if they kept it to Earth 2 the way Marvel Ultimates does with Colossus and Spiderman. If they can make alternate universe Spiderman gay why not alternate universe Superman.
Batman, I say, is always off limits. Batman & Robin with a gay Batman... sorry, that is a big NO. I'm all for gay scout leaders but not if they are asking the scouts to come train with them in their underground lair dressed in a lone ranger mask, green speedos and little elf slippers. That just seems wrong.
While they are at it why not make Superboy a compulsive masturbater and write a story about Fire & Ice finding out Booster Gold gave them herpes? Gay people need heroes they can relate to so do compulsive masturbaters and herpes carriers. What about guys with micro-penis? Why not find out that Batman has been stuffing his pants due to his abnormally small wang, the REAL source of all his anger? And lets not forget transvestites, maybe Green Arrow should get arrested cross-dressing and working as a hooker. DC has become a sad joke since the reboot so why not fully commit to the joke.
