Alan Scott Better Be a 'Queero!

Alan and Obsidian, His Gay Son
There are no queer characters featured in comics this week. Please prove me wrong (please!), but as far as I can tell no comic coming out this week has a single queer character. And there are at least half a dozen AvX-tie-in titles out this week. You'd think that out of the two premiere Marvel super-teams there'd be ONE bi-curious or gender-transgressive character. But zilch.

Thorn, Alan's Baby Mama
And that's why I'm STOKED that Alan Scott, the Green Lantern of Earth 2, is going to be a 'mo: because losing Obsidian was one of the worst blows that DCnU dealt, because this will be the first core JSA character to be queer, and because I now have my fingers crossed that Rose/Thorn will be a transsexual character like Ben/Glory from BtVS or Xavin from Runaways. And that would be AWESOME.
