Lets be honest DC
played it safe with making Alan Scott
gay,while being hailed for making this bold move they still played it safe and used a Character that while important still isn't well known outside of the Comicbook world.
It's like when Marvel
killed Peter Parker
and replaced him with a Black kid,bold yes but it was the Ultimate
version not the "real one".
So while big deals Marvel
still aren't willing to really let their main characters undergo such changes....yet.
