‘Superman’ actor says making hero LGBT ‘isn’t bold or brave’

(FAITHWIRE) – Dean Cain, who portrayed the Man of Steel in the 1990s television show “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman,” is calling out DC Comics for “bandwagoning” for depicting the latest iteration of the superhero as bisexual.

The actor turned political commentator shared the criticism during an appearance on “Fox & Friends” just one day after the comic book creator announced it is going in a “bold new direction” by depicting Jon Kent — the son of the original Superman, Clark Kent — as a bisexual man who strikes up a romantic relationship with male reporter Jay Nakamura.

Cain, though, doesn’t see the development as bold or brave. “If they had done this 20 years ago,” he said, “perhaps that would be bold or brave. But brave would be having him fight for the rights of gay people in Iran, where they’ll throw you off a building for the offense of being gay.”
