John Cena’s ‘Peacemaker’ confirmed as bisexual, adds to #BiVisibility in mainstream media

Continuing bisexual representation in media, the character of Peacemaker – originally owned by Charlton Comics and later acquired by DC Comics – was confirmed to be part of the LGBTQIA community.

Continuing bisexual representation in media, the character of Peacemaker – originally owned by Charlton Comics and later acquired by DC Comics – was confirmed to be part of the LGBTQIA community.

Played by former wrestler John Cena, Peacemaker was shown to have slept with at least one man – e.g. in one episode, it was insinuated that he had a threesome with crime-fighting companion Vigilante, played by Freddie Stroma.

But in the second-to-last episode of the first season of Peacemaker, as shown in HBO, Peacemaker fought with The White Dragon (played by Robert Patrick), a white supremacist villain who happened to be his father.

In a conversation with The White Dragon, the latter stated: “I knew you was unclean when you was born. Even more so when you killed your brother. I knew when you listened to that devil music… I knew when you slept with the whores of polluted blood! And men!”

But in the TV series, Peacemaker wasn’t the only LGBTQIA character – i.e. Leota Adebayo (played by Danielle Brooks) is a lesbian.

But DC has a growing number of LGBTQIA characters.

Earlier, in 2021, Jon Kent, known as “the Superman of Earth,” came out as bisexual after starting a romantic relationship with reporter Jay Nakamura.

Before the new Superman’s coming out, Tim Drake — a.k.a. Robin, Batman’s sidekick — also came out as bisexual; while Batwoman, Harley Quinn and Alan Scott (a.k.a. the first Green Lantern) came out prior.
