Is Clark Kent Going Gay?

Is Clark Kent Going Gay?

Our entire species is going to be extinct afterall. Well done nancyboy.

No, but Superman might be.

Here’s the rumor and it sounds very, very current year.

The toilet-wine writers at DC Comics have absolutely no idea what to do with an aspirational hero like Kal-El of Krypton. Intrinsic goodness is something they simply have no frame of reference for. They are too hollow inside to have a basic sympathy with the fundamentals of the concept. In truth they are actually repelled by it.

Although, I will grant them one thing.

The fact of the matter is Clark Kent is the product of a world that no longer exists. Consider, he first appeared in 1938 and looked to be 30 years old. He would have arrived on Earth in 1908, and had living memories of the Great War. The Kents were probably plowing with mules. He would have gone to college in the Roaring Twenties and would have just turned 21 when the Crash of Twenty-Nine happened. He would have spent his entire adult life in the Great Depression watching the suffering of those around him, yet unable to do anything about it. He became a reporter for one reason only, the teletype machine and police radio the Daily Planet were the internet of their day. The Daily Planet itself was a towering institution with the power to shape minds and opinions.

Attempts to update Clark Kent for a modern world, always fail and he ends up defaulting back to who he will always be. A man from the generation before the Greatest Generation. The character is static in the public mind, Clark Kent will forever be a mild-mannered reporter for the Daily Planet in a world where the newspaper is practically extinct.

However, Clark’s son, Jon Kent is a blank slate. They can do whatever they want with him and the 12 people who still buy DC Comics will accept it. That would include making him gay. The Twitter-Stans who pretend they loved I Am Not Starfire will adore them and shower them with likes if not actual money.

But more importantly, it will get DC Comics all manner of hate-clicks. And at this point, if it weren’t for hate-clicks they’d have no clicks at all.

Okay, I’m done here.

    Let the silence of our indifference resound in their ears like the closing of our wallets. There is, after all, far superior entertainment to be had.

    Yes, because there is a HUGE LGBT whatever market for superhero comics, and no one else has ever done anything like this before.

    In the bible, the Philistines take the ark of the covenant into their temple of dagon. Soon the priests of dagon walk in and find dagon off his pedestal. Later they walk in and his head is broken off. Later his hands broken off.
    Then the tumors start and the men of the cities find their gonands under divine assault. 8 months after gathering the ark to themselves in hubris, the nobility gather together and send the ark back on a cart full of treasure and pulled by cattle who take the ark back home.

    My point is this: When there is arrogant corruption of the good and the true and the beautiful, judgement comes slowly and in stages. DC is sjw and is of course, doubling down. Right now DC is in the lost the hands stage, coming up next is the gonad tumors, for whatever gonads they have left.

    From story standpoint and a logical standpoint, this decision would make no sense. I mean you just rewrote reality to make it so that Lois and Clark can have children. Logically, it is an opportunity to reintroduce the Kryptonian bloodlines that had been obliterated.

    This would be the most epic parenting fail in that what little hope you have of keeping your parents, and your bloodline going being an abject failure.

    I don’t understand this decision at all. In a darkly comic, as in funny-not funny, it is quite the condemnation of the current American culture that is “Woke” and points out it is a evolutionary dead end.

      “I don’t understand this decision at all.”

      I don’t understand in 2021 how there can still be people who don’t understand why they are doing this.

    In the future, when Vox Day has bought the Superman franchise for $1, I look forward to issue AV (after Vox) #1: “Superman, The Illegal Alien with Super-powers: He Has To Go Back.”

    I can dream, can’t I?

    Then… who in Clark’s family abused his son at an early age for that to happen? Lois’ dad? Jimmy Olsen? Earth 2 Green Lantern?
