Ex-Superman actor Dean Cain has accused DC Comics of jumping on a bandwagon by revealing the latest incarnation of the character will be bisexual.
In the next issue, Jon Kent – the son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane – will be pictured in a same-sex relationship with his friend Jay Nakamura.
Dean Cain, who played Superman on TV in the 1990s, said “I don’t think it’s bold or brave or some crazy new direction.”
“If they had done this 20 years ago, perhaps that would be bold or brave. But brave would be having him fight for the rights of gay people in Iran.”
