The Green Lantern Gay Marriage Proposal

The Green Lantern Gay Marriage Proposal

Marvel got so much press for its X-Men Wedding Proposal issue, even if it was slightly diverted by press over this week's DC Comics outing of the original Green Lantern. What would have happened if, at the time, DC Comics had noted that in Earth 2 #2, they have their own marriage proposal from to-be-Green Lantern Alan Scott to his boyfriend Sam? Would the press monitors have exploded? Especially when we get the old train-tunnel imagery?

Of course what happens next, in Earth 2 #2 is very different to how Marvel managed their marriage proposal… and no, you'll have to buy the comic to see that. But I feel a new trope coming on…
