So anyway, the Alan Scott thing seems a reasonable approach to retconning sexual orientation given that he and Garrick appear to be mainly new characters using the same names and powers.
Pretty much. Oddly enough, it's only different from the Silver Age re-invention in that the alter ego's kept their names as well.
E-2 Flash has a different origin and source of speed, and it looks to be the same for GL.
And while having the character not in the "main" universe is pretty safe....the vibe I'm getting is that on Earth-2, GL will fulfill the "Superman" role since E-2 Supes is dead. So at least in this world, their most prominent hero is gay.
It'll take a few issues to get used to, but I'm loving this fresh approach to the Golden Age characters and can't wait to see where they take it.
