I don't think DC would have done that to a character they really care about. So, I think it shows their disposition about Alan Scott. I'm not really invested in Alan Scott, myself, so I don't care much, but i'm generally against the process of turning characters who have been straight for decades and decades gay.

I certainly understand the need for comics to be more inclusive to those who aren't straight White males, but I don't think that's the optimal way to go about it.

I was talking to a gay friend about superheroes by chance. He wanted to know some stuff about Batman and I told him I was more of a Green Lantern guy. He said he didn't know much about GL except he had been turned gay recently. But it was ''only the alternate universe one no one cares about.'' Those were his words, so he, at least, wasn't impressed by the gesture.
