Jonathan Samuel Kent or Jon Kent, son of the original DC Comics’ Superman Clark Kent, who continues his father’s mission to protect humanity, will become a bisexual in the new issue, says DC on its website Monday.
“Earth’s new superman comes out as bisexual,” and the new issue will become available on November 9, says the website.
Jon Kent, like his father Clark Kent, has fallen for a reporter. The reporter is Jay Nakamura a male figure.
The announcement comes in view of the National Coming Out Day, celebrated on October 11. The event meant to support gay and lesbian people was established in the US in 1988.
The first Superman comic book was published in 1938. The character, known for his blue and red outfit and the cape, was portrayed in many movies, TV shows and video games.
