In the upcoming issue of DC Comics, Superman will kiss a man.

Jon will be pictured in a same-sex relationship with his friend Jay Nakamura in the next comic book issue, which will be released in November.

Jon Kent, the latest Superman from DC Comics, will be bisexual, according to the publisher.

Jon will be pictured in a same-sex relationship with his friend Jay Nakamura in the next comic book issue, which will be released in November.

The narrative is part of the ‘Superman: Son of Kal-El’ series, which follows Jon as he inherits the Superman mantle from his father, Clark Kent.

On National Coming Out Day, an annual LGBT awareness day created in the United States, DC Comics made the announcement.

Jon has already fought wildfires caused by climate change, stopped a high school massacre, and demonstrated against the deportation of immigrants since the series premiered in July.

Jon made friends with Jay, a bespectacled, pink-haired reporter, in an earlier issue.

After Jon “mentally and physically burns out from attempting to save everyone that he can,” according to DC Comics, the two will get romantically connected in the next fifth issue.

The plot hasn’t been revealed yet, but photographs published by DC Comics show Jon and Jay kissing.

Tom Taylor, the series’ creator, told bazzup that when he originally got the job, he thought about “what Superman should be today.”

“It occurred to me that replacing Clark Kent with another straight white savior would be a huge mistake,” Mr Taylor added.

Before he could even present the notion of Jon being bisexual, he was informed that DC Comics was already considering it.

“There’s been a tremendous movement over the last few years – this would have been more difficult 10 years ago, five years ago,” Mr Taylor added, “but I think things have shifted in a really welcome way.”

Despite opposition from “trolls” on social media, he claimed, the tale has received overwhelmingly positive feedback.

“We’ve heard from people who were moved to tears when they heard the news today — people who said they never imagined they’d be able to see themselves in Superman… Mr Taylor recalled, “literally the most powerful superhero in comics.”

“People would always say, ‘Don’t put politics in comic books,’ forgetting that every single [comic book] narrative has ever been political in some way,” he remarked. “Those who are unaware that the [Marvel comic series] X-Men is a metaphor for the civil rights movement.”

“We strive to bring those individuals with us, but we’re writing for the people who will see this Superman… and say, ‘This Superman looks like me.'” “This Superman is fighting for causes that are important to me,” he continued.
