Dean Cain Criticizes Bisexual Superman as Neither Bold or Brave: WATCH

Dean Cain who played Superman/Clark Kent on Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman from 1993-1997 criticized DC Comics on Fox & Friends Tuesday. “They said it’s a bold new direction, I say they’re bandwagoning. Robin just came out as bi — who’s really shocked about that one? The new Captain America is gay. My daughter in [The CW series] Supergirl, where I played the father, was gay. So I don’t think it’s bold or brave or some crazy new direction. If they had done this 20 years ago, perhaps that would be bold or brave.”

The 55 year-old actor is proudly conservative. “Brave would be having him fighting for the rights of gay people in Iran where they’ll throw you off a building for the offense of being gay. They’re talking about having him fight climate change and the deportation of refugees, and he’s dating a hacktivist — whatever a hactivist is. 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. 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. There’s real evil in this world today, real corruption and government overreach, plenty of things to fight against. Human trafficking — real and actual slavery going on. … It’d be great to tackle those issues.”

The writer of the comic-book series Tom Taylor told the New York Times: “The idea of replacing Clark Kent with another straight white savior felt like a missed opportunity. … A new Superman had to have new fights — real-world problems — that he could stand up to as one of the most powerful people in the world.”
