so about green lantern's gay asian boyfriend...

Well, I definitely saw this one coming. Remember the news that DC Comics was re-introducing Alan Scott, aka Earth 2's Green Lantern, as gay? In the New 52 continuity, the character is not only gay, he's in a relationship with an Asian man named Sam. However, their happiness doesn't last long. Spoilers ahead:

Alas, as many predicted, Sam was introduced primarily so he could be killed off, giving Alan Scott the proper angsty motivation -- what every good superhero needs -- to become Green Lantern. Doomed! Sam gets killed off in Earth 2 #3. That didn't take long. More here: Earth 2's Sam and Alan Scott: a great couple... of pages.
