Dean Cain Blasts DC Comics’ Decision to Make Superman Bisexual
By Movieguide® Staff
Dean Cain, known for his television role as Superman in LOIS & CLARK, blasted the DC Comics’ decision to make the character bisexual.
In the comics, John Kent, son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, is now Superman.
“They said it’s a bold new direction. I say they’re bandwagoning,” Cain said.
“Why don’t they have him fight the injustices that created the refugees whose deportation he’s protesting? That would be brave, I’d read that,” Cain added. “Or fighting for the rights of women to attend school and work and live and boys not to be raped by men under the new warm and fuzzy Taliban.”
Cain previously condemned the “woke” politically correct culture affecting comics today, including a gay Captain America.
As Movieguide® previously reported:
“I love the concept of Captain America, but I am so tired of all of this wokeness and anti-Americanism,” Cain said in an interview with FOX AND FRIENDS.
“I find this wokeness, it’s pervasive,” Cain says. “It goes through everything. It’s in our school system. The cool thing to do today is bash America. The comic books do it. The schools indoctrinate our kids. Our movies or television shows is full of it. Celebrities, actors, athletes, the media, they love to bash America. I don’t get it.”
In the comics, the latest Captain America is a gay teenager named Aaron Fischer. In THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER, Sam Wilson picks up the shield, despite a Black super soldier named Elijah Bradley discouraging Wilson to do so because of America’s racist history. …
“In my opinion, America is the greatest country in history,” Cain says. “It’s not perfect. We are constantly striving for a more perfect union, as we all know, but I believe she’s the most fair, equitable country ever, with more opportunity than anyone’s ever seen, and that’s why people are clamoring to get here from all over the globe.
“I agree with Senator Tom Cotton … who said that, perhaps, Captain needs to be demoted to Lieutenant. I think that makes good sense,” Cain continues. “America has its founding principles, which I firmly believe in. I believe in individual freedom, I believe in equality of opportunity not outcome, competition, the ability to compete fairly hard work, which brings you success and brings you material wealth, which in turn gives you self-reliance. That’s what everybody wants on the face of this planet. That’s what everybody strives for. That’s why they’re trying to come here.”
This same sentiment applies to Cain’s opinion on the new Superman, as well.
“There’s real evil in this world today, real corruption and government overreach… It’d be great to tackle those issues. I’d like to see the character doing that,” he said.
