"Major/Iconic" character from DC soon OUT of the closet

So apparently DC intends to out one of their characters. This person will be both major and iconic, apparently.

Now, DC hasn't really shyed away from gay/lesbian characters before (Batwoman/Batgirl, etc...). So that said, I'm not so sure why this is a big deal-- except that this time it's someone iconic. However, it also seems to be "a character not seen since the relaunch".

I really think CBRs list is a tad insulting in how it's written ("let's guess the new gay!") and I also think they miss the mark by a mile. I think the only one on that list who they might swing with is Plastic Man.

But I agree with my friend Jim. It's Lex Luthor.
