At the Kapow Comic Convention in London this weekend, a panel attendee asked DC Comics co-publisher Dan DiDio about the company’s statement that it wouldn’t be changing the sexual orientation of any of its characters in the wake of its reboot last year.
In recent years, DC has revamped characters by changing their age, gender, race and other characteristics.
Previously, Didio claimed DC would introduce more new LGBT character rather than rewrite existing ones as gay. At Kapow, though, he reversed his position and revealed a DC character who was previously straight and now will be “one of our most prominent gay characters.”
Bob Wayne explained that, like President Obama, the co-publisher’s policy on this “has evolved.”
