So, can we talk for a second about how bullshit it is that Alan Scott’s boyfriend dies right after Alan Scott proposes? And how bullshit the lack of outrage is? If it had be a female character that it had happened to, the entire internet would be up in arms about her getting fridged like that. So what’s up Tumblr? It’s suddenly acceptable because it happened to a guy? Or is it because people don’t approve of turning Alan Scott gay? I’ll admit, DC making the guy whose weakness is wood, and gets his powers from a flame was poorly thought out, but still. This move was extremely uncool of DC, and the lack of a reaction from the fans completely and utterly baffles me.

Hmmm…I don’t know where you’ve been hanging out at, but people have expressed worry over the possibility of Alan Scott’s boyfriend being fridged. This being James Robinson, it’s not a far off assumption given his own comments on fridging, believing it’s an acceptable plot device to drive the hero’s story. 

I think the reason the entire internet hasn’t blown up in flames over the ending yet is because the second issue ended on a cliffhanger. From what I’ve read, people are keeping their fingers crossed that Sam will still survive and Alan will save him. If, however, Robinson does the predictable and fridges Sam to drive Alan’s story, rest assure, a shit storm will most definitely be headed Robinson’s way.
