I don’t mind at all that DC is trying to make a quick buck, which is exactly what this is, but are the so artistically bankrupt that they can’t just create a new character? Why not give them a proper back story and really delve into what it means to be gay in their universe? Superman and Robin have shown no inclination towards homosexuality until DC decided to shoehorn this in. They will get some publicity and sell a few more comic books for a few months, but this just seems to be in poor taste.

Superman's Bisexuality is absolutely a sales gimmick. They are hoping people will pick up the issue where he comes out, and keep buying.

But, what in comics is not a gimmick? At least by the big two these days.

I have long believed that all this stuff people claim is some "agenda" is just them trying to find more readers, to varying degrees of success.

That all having been said.

Jon IS Gen Z, and 1 in 6 adult members of Gen Z self-identify as LGBTQ, with the "B" the most represented.
