Actor Dean Cain, who played Superman in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman from 1993 to 1997, is unimpressed by the news that the superheroÂ Clark Kentâs son Jon Kent will be bisexual.
He is not happy that Jon Kent will be depicted as being attracted to both men and women in the Superman: Son of Kal-El comic and shared that writers are simply âbandwagoningâ and havenât done anything particularly âbraveâ.
However, speaking on a chat show, he said, âThey said itâs a bold new direction, I say theyâre bandwagoning. Robin just came out as bi. Even the new Captain America is gay. My daughter in [the TV series] Supergirl, where I played the father, was gay. So I donât think itâs bold or brave or some crazy new direction. In fact, if they had done this 20 years ago, perhaps that would be bold or brave.â
The actor insisted it would be more âbraveâ if Superman was depicted trying to tackle global âinjusticesâ instead. Â âBrave would be having him fighting for the rights of gay people in Iran. Or fighting for the rights of women to attend school and have the ability to work and live and boys not to be raped by men under the new warm and fuzzy Taliban. That would be brave, Iâd read that.â
