Dean Cain dissed the comic bookmakers for portraying Superman as Bisexual
After DC comics announced that Jonathan Kent, the son of Clark Kent aka Superman and Lois Lane is coming out as bisexual, fans welcomed the inclusivity wholeheartedly. The announcement was made Monday, October 11, which also happened to be the National Coming Out Day. Actor Dean Cain, 55, who played Superman in the ABC series ‘Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman’ from 1993 to 1997, dissed the comic bookmakers for portraying Superman as Bisexual.
During an interview with ‘Fox & Friends’ on Tuesday, October 12, Dean Cain said, “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 TV 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, ” he added.

The actor continued saying, “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 hacktivist is.” He then added, “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.”
‘Why does Dean Cain thinks he matters?’
Fans slammed Dean Cain for calling DC’s move of making Superman bisexual ‘bandwagoning’ and posted tweets like, “Let’s be clear. Dean Cain doesn’t read comic books. If he weren’t guaranteed a fee, he’d never set foot in a comic book convention. So asking his opinion, because he was the categorically worst Superman actor in creation for three seasons 30 years, is a useless exercise.” One person tweeted, “How bold is Dean Cain, you played one of the best, honorable, heroic, caring characters of all time yet managed to not actually hold one of those principles” One fan wrote, “Why doesn’t Dean Cain just shut the f*ck up omg, dude hasn’t been relevant for years.
