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."
I was responding to the main thrust of your argument in the above post: that he was from an alternate universe, but Alan Scott was always an alternate universe idea in the DCU. In the Silver Age he was from Earth-2, in the post-Crisis he was a character folded into the composite Earth and now post-FP he was is back in Earth-2.
