DC Comics continued to expand its roster of out superheroes this week by showing a same-sex kiss between Aquaman and Wynnde on the animated series Young Justice: Outsiders, a show about teenage superheroes.
In the recent episode “Quiet Conversations,” Kaldur-ahm, a character formerly known as Aqualad, took on the name of Aquaman from the original superhero after serving for a while as his protege. After becoming the new Aquaman, he kissed Wynnde, a resident of the underwater kingdom of Atlantis.
The new Aquaman is known for being soft-spoken and clear-headed and is more or less the leader of his superhero team. His father is Aquaman’s nemesis Black Manta. Aquaman previously had romantic dealings with girls, hinting at the possibility that he might be bisexual.
