John Kent admits that he is bisexual, DC company noted.

John Kent, who, according to the script of the comic book of the American company DC, is the son of the original Superman Clark Kent and continues his father’s mission to protect humanity, will become bisexual in the new issue of comics. The company announced this on its website.

“The new Superman on Earth admits that he is bisexual,” the message says. The comic will appear on store shelves from November 9.

This plot twist is connected with the day of recognition of one’s sexual orientation, which is celebrated on October 11 and is designed to support people with non-traditional sexual orientation. It has been held in the United States since 1988.

The first comic about the most famous hero with superhuman abilities was created in 1938. Superman, who was born on the planet Krypton and received the name Clark Kent on Earth, began to show superpowers from an early age and decided to use them to benefit humanity. The character, whose distinctive features are a red-blue-yellow suit and a scarlet cloak, has been filmed in dozens of films, TV series, and video games.

John Kent is one of the new characters in the DC comics universe, who took over the baton of saving the world from his father in one of the issues of the comic in 2016. Since then, Clark Kent’s heir reflects the current American news agenda – the hero has previously faced the problems of global climate change, fought for the rights of migrants, and prevented school shootings.
