    yeah, you're correct but DC and established continuity & consistency? hahaha

    yeah, I also thought about that - hopefully at least one of Jon's descendants is from that kind of process with a male partner - it's so sci-fi, I love it!

They could put him with a woman and not have to have a visible queer character and still claim credit for him being LGBT. Not unlike how Marvel loves to brag about Deadpool being pan despite never having a male partner.
    Deadpool is a very good example of pan-erasure... I believe Taylor will be trying to handle Jon's bisexuality with respect. I'm more concerned about readers. Bisexuality is bisexuality - males, females, others as potential romantic interests and/or sex partners.

    She's supposed to be the "spirit of the 21st century", so introducing that idea to her character would better reflect what has become a large aspect of the 21st century's make up.
    Very good point!!! And what about a (maybe even non-human) gender fluid/non gender conforming shapeshifter as a love interest for Jon? That would be spicy

    I expect Tom Taylor will do well with Jon.
    It’s how he’s handled after Tom leaves the book eventually I worry about.

    You wouldn't hear me complaining!

    Over in Young Justice they have Conner and Miss Martian dating, and one of the things that stuck out to me was the fact that she said that the body was just "clothes for the mind". This is a byproduct of their culture being centered around telepathy and shapshifting. Gender designations on that world (especially with how they're depicted in the show) seems arbitrary if not just a choice in pronouns.

    I'd really love to see them push that idea to its rightful limits in the comics with maybe a new martian character or a totally new alien race. Rather than how Miss Martian ultimately settles on exclusively being female, this new character could literally change genders as easily as you or I pick out a shirt in the morning.

    Like, imagine a 4 panel layout where Jon and this person are making out and each panel this person is shifting into not just different hair colors and what have you, but also different genders and races.

    You know, with Krypton technology being what it is, I won't believe that Jon couldn't have biological children even with a guy/non-normaly reproductiev partner.

    Me too. Those kinds of romantic storylines made sense when things like high school sweethearts were common but now it feels a little outdated.

    Honestly, right now, I rather just that Jon sticks it out with Jay, as we continue to explore Jay's character and Jon and Jay as a romantic duo. I've really grown to like Jay and the prospects he brings to himself and to Superman. I also appreciate that Jon is pursuing an Asian character, and an Asian male at that. (Asian male characters, all too much like Asian men in real life, tend to be underrepresented in the departments of desirability and love in the West, particularly cross-racially/cross-culturally.)

    I also just feel it's a little too soon to be doing any serious or on-going ruminating on who Jon could go with at this point. Again, he's only just now with Jay; heck, the issue where this becomes a thing officially hasn't even happened yet. I say let Jon and the cute and cool Asian boyfriend to-be that he already has grow and be together for the time being, first.

    I don't see why Asian Men have the best abs.

    Right on. I feel like there's limitless possibilities if a writer wanted to dip into the pool of the more non-humanoid Green Lantern character types. Morrison featured a lot of them in their recent GL run. Not necessarily saying those specifically, but something along those lines would be pretty cool to explore relationship-wise.

    It was suggested in that GL run that the main universe Hal Jordan is actually pansexual - e.g., one of his romantic/sexual relationships was with a non-humanoid nurse from a space hospital (or something like that).

    Your reference to Morrison's GL run is very spot on in the sense that that kind of space/alien framework would completely open up opportunities for sci-fi/non-humanoid relationships.

    Unsurprisingly, issue #4 was one of the 10 best-selling titles of the week in bleeding cool's list -
    https://bleedingcool.com/comics/a-la...al-of-magneto/

    I guess the next issue is going to be ranked much higher. Wonder if Taylor would be able to keep the momentum.

    Happy Halloween everyone. It’s been a wildfire since Jon came out but it’s nice to see that Jon and Jay are already many people’s choice of a couple’s costume.

    x They got wrong Superboy design but it says Jon Kent in the caption so it’s the thought that counts lol

    x The creator of the popular series Boyfriends (one of top 5 series on Webtoons) also drew his characters dressed up as Jon and Jay.

    It’s nice to see some positive content for them and that they’re already gaining traction as a couple!

    Nice.

    Gotta say, I'm disappointed in the Pentatonix guy. He must have money, and that cheap ass costume with the foam muscles is the best he can do?
