So the new major gay character is one limited to an alternative universe? Way to go, DC! Way to take a stand!
The original Alan Scott was also from an alternate universe.
So? How does that change my point? DC stated an iconic character would be gay. Regardless of where the original Alan Scott came from, he's still 1. Not particularly iconic 2. from an Alternative Earth, not the "Prime Earth."

In other words, it's SAFE for them to do that. It might appear to be "forward" thinking, but, it's really not.
Once again though, DC has a number of gay characters (or had in the old universe). Making a big deal of adding yet another gay character just reeks of a sales grab. They already demonstrated their "forward thinking" ten years ago.
