It's official. Alan Scott is gay.

Now I'm a little confused since I skipped out on Earth-2...does that mean Alan was never on "our" Earth? Or whatever they're calling it now. I guess Robinson has confirmed that Obsidian no longer exists...what about Jade though (I've not been reading any of the Green Lantern books).
And therein lies the compounded problem.
It's not just Alan Scott that it affects but directly 2 other characters in Jade and Obsidian. It's rock in a pond ripple affect.
This is a rebooted Alan Scott....different character, same name. And it wouldn't matter even if he wasn't gay, he's way too young to have fathered children who'd be in their early 20's, so the characters were lost the moment they decided to make Alan early to mid 20's-ish.

There's also 50, more or less, chances we'll find versions of Jade and Obsidian existing somewhere in the DC multiverse. And keep in mind they'll be just as rebooted as everything else, even if they ended up being the kids of some other Alan Scott.
