DC Comics has announced that its latest Superman, Jon Kent, is bisexual.
In its next comic book issue, due for release in November, Jon will be pictured in a same-sex relationship with his friend Jay Nakamura.
The storyline is part of ‘Superman: Son of Kal-El’, a series following Jon as he takes on the mantle of Superman from his father, Clark Kent.
Series writer Tom Taylor told the BBC that, when he was first offered the job, he pondered “what Superman should be today”.
“We try to bring those people with us, but we are writing for the people who will hopefully see this Superman… and say ‘This Superman is like me. This Superman is fighting for things that concern me’,” he added.
