The new Superman, Jon Kent, who is also the son of Clark Kent/Superman with Lois Lane, has come out to his father in the latest issue of “Superman: Son of Kal-El”.

In 2021, DC Comics made headlines after Jon came out as bisexual after starting a romantic relationship with reporter Jay Nakamura.

In a narrative written by Tom Taylor, Jon is getting reacquainted with his father, who returned from a year-long mission on Warworld. At first, he did not come out to Clark while on planet Vega 3. But the young hero headed back to earth to investigate a mysterious fire in Metropolis; and while there, he was attacked by an unknown threat, leaving him unconscious.

While recovering from his injuries at the Justice League Infirmary, Jon finally had the courage to come out to his father. Jon admitted holding back from coming out because he was afraid of disappointing his father. But the original Man of Steel removed his worries.

“Every day of my life has been better since you’ve been in it. Every single day. Who you love is the last thing that could change that,” Clark said. “Anyone who makes your life better will always be a hero in my eyes. And no matter what, I will stand beside you. I will defend you. I will love you, and I will always, always be your father.”

“Superman: Son of Kal-El” issue #17 is now available

Promoting LGBTQIA representation in comics, Jon is not the first DC character to come out as part of the LGBTQIA community; earlier, Tim Drake — a.k.a. Robin, Batman’s sidekick — also came out as bisexual in August. DC’s Batwoman, Harley Quinn and Alan Scott (a.k.a. the first Green Lantern) also belong to the LGBTQIA community.
