Word hit the internet today that DC will be reintroducing another character as gay to the new 52. In an interview,
DiDio has stated that it will be an already established, currently heterosexual character. After ripping a few interweb bigots apart with inate weapons; such as logic, rational thought, and good 'ol 21st century sense, I found a few articles like this one:
Any ideas on who this soon-to-be-outed character my be? And will he/she be a male or female? Or human?
My guess: Vibe
Vibe is already returning, implied by the Free Comic Book day fold-out. And look at that totally 80's costume and super sick dance moves, they're practically parade worthy. DC would be doubling up (or halving, according to internet oligarchist) with another gay, non-white superhero.
Plus, considering the fact that he was featured in this week's DC Nation Shorts, that may have been his first reintroduction to watchers. However, if DC is going for diversity, it might be a little off-puting to have two or more homosexuals of latin decent, including Bunker and Renee Montoya if she still exists...other races can be gay too ya know!
Any other guesses anyone wants to share?
