FTN Worldwide exclusive: DCs ‘new’ gay character!

May 28th, 2012 by Jay Comments

As previously stated DC Comics has confirmed that it will reintroduce one of its established characters as gay.

The news first broke during the publisher’s ‘New 52’ panel at the recent Kapow Comic Con, and has since been reiterated by senior vice president of publicity Courtney Simmons.  DC Comics co-publisher Dan DiDio previously announced that the mystery character will go on to become one of the “most prominent” gay heroes in the DC Universe.

… and now we here at Following The Nerd can not only reveal who that character will be but also offer definitive proof.  So, without further ado I give you the reveal:


Superman has always wanted to know what it feels like to kiss a woman with a moustache?!?!  Ok, if that isn’t proof then I don’t know what is!!!*

*this news item may have been brought to you be someone suffering from the heat, lack of sleep and too much caffeine for their own good; it may not even be a news item, per se, let alone ‘definitive proof’ … but it made you read this 😉

Jay says that he is a writer, martial artist, sketcher, and dreamer but mostly just a husband and father. Since getting married to the wonderful and patient woman of his dreams, and becoming a father (of two young boys), he has fallen into the category of 'lapsed nerd' as he is a former RPer, Live Role-Player, and comic book junkie. Science fiction and fantasy books are the staple of his shelves - both in terms of books and movies ... however, he's never seen Star Wars (any of them) but please don't hold that against him! He is currently trying to find a medical cure for the thing called sleep, as it is interferring with the thing he calls life. If you want to know more about him go to
