There's a lot of gay men with kids... Some of which were in the closet and married to a woman before they came out. Him having children is still 100% plausible.

The only thing I don't like about this is that DC is making way too big a deal out of it. 
Like they are expecting an applause for adding more homosexual characters. 
 
Other than that...power to fictional Alan.

I'm 500% on board with that... the ONLY problem AT ALL I have with it is that Alan being gay then having a gay son... is highly unlikely, unless we're trying to lend credence to theory that homosexuality is a genetically inherited trait (which I strongly attest it is NOT)... now, there are still plenty of ways to work through this, allowing the creation of Obsidian and Jade, preserving Obsidian's homosexuality while retaining Alan's new status... so I'll wait and see. For now, I'll take it as happy news and we'll see how it develops from this point forth.

Well I wasn't expecting that. I thought it would be Wally. Alan Scott isn't that iconic to me. Then again Hal Jordan is my favourite Green Lantern (waits for barrage of abuse from Viners who despise Hal Jordan)

That's the way I see it. Jade and Obsidian could still come around just a bit later. Also thank you for your brilliant twitter posts to One Million Moms. I wonder how they'll take this news once they hear it...

Hahaha, lol... Gay people have become the new ''token black guy'', its ''in'' to have a gay character... its stupid, but i guess its a fad we have to get through until Gayness is normal just like Black superheroes are today.

Personally im not a fan of Alan Scott but from what i know of him, i find him awesome enough, i never knew any of his previous flirts or girlfriends so its nothing that will change my look on him, let him be gay.. fine..

They should make Obsidian asexual like they did in his JLA run. Asexual are a totally unrepresented minority in comics. :p

Well that was stupid. I am all for gay characters in comics but:

Does DC really want to into a debate about whether or not being gay is in your genes? Out of all the characters in the DCU, DC had to go with the only one who had a gay son. Really?

Also, what is the point of making a character gay if at the same you erase the existence of another? In the end, you do not have more gay characters, you just did two idiotic RetCons.

Nor do I for that matter. Marriage shouldn't be restricted to what some religious people thinks it should be. Marriage is a civil right everyone is entitled to.

I should be upset because I'm not a fan of changing things like this but I'm not.  They just have to find away to include Jade now. I actually wouldn't mind if she wasn't his daughter and was in Earth 0/Prime so she could be with Kyle. I don't give a two figs about Obsidian honestly.

yeah but I wasn't worried with Damian because he's 10 and he has that rough personality, but with Tim, I thought he was going to hook up with bunker. I mean it does make sense that writers created this new gay character so he can be Drake's boyfriend

That would actually be closer to my ideal of the situation... I'd love for Jade and Obsidian to exist (and be brother and sister) but have no relation to Alan. I'm certain that I'm a minority there, but alas, I am.

@DarkKnightDetective: To me it would kind of suck if Tim was gay. But it sure seems like their setting him up to be gay. His past girlfriends are pretty much gone. He has more or a 'phemonin' look to him. And he is becoming good friends with Bunker.

I don't like it... the idea reaks of gimmick and there is no logical reason in my mind why he should be gay.
