Superman and Batman are several of DC Comics' most revered superheroes, yet an urban legend remains that the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight Detective have been secretly in the dark for decades ... if you know what I mean.

Well, DC Comics has finally shined some light on that, as they revealed the Green Lantern as their newest superhero to come out of the closet. Relax, it's not Hal Jordan (unless you saw the film last summer, like I did), but Alan Scott, Earth 2's protagonist in DC Comics' "New 52". Described as "a team leader with a Type-A personality and an appetite for justice", Scott was one of the Golden Age members when he first preceded as the Green Lantern in 1940. He then went on to become a member of the Justice Society.

In his interview with Entertainment Weekly (EW), writer James Robinson stated that though this version of Alan Scott/Green Lantern will have characteristics similar to Facebook founder Mark Zuckenberg and David Geffen, he will be the "same dynamic, brave, honorable man" longtime fans have known and loved for over seventy years.

"His sexuality is a part of him, but it isn't his defining trait" Robinson said. "He's an interesting, complex character that I think people will respond to on many levels. He's the epitome of heroism. And I hope that he's a positive representation of a gay man."

Scott makes his debut in the second issue of Earth 2, which goes on sale June 6, but you can also a sneak preview of it online at www.dccomics.com.
