We've been wondering for a while about Sinestro's sexuality. The fascistic alien conqueror, from DC Comics' Green Lantern series, sports a neat little mustache and a costume that's skin-tight and unusually heavy on the gold lamé, even by superhero/supervillain standards. And then we discovered a page from an old Green Lantern comic that made our sex questions even more pressing — and so we decided to talk to the comic's writer and shed some light on what makes Sinestro happy.
Here's the page that started us questioning Sinestro's orientation. It comes from Green Lantern #221, part of the Millennium cross-over. In a nutshell, the Green Lanterns (a space police force with magic wishing rings) are protecting a group of humans who are supposed to develop into the next stage of human evolution. It all goes horribly wrong, as you can read here. Those humans are supposed to evolve into quasi-gods and save the universe, or something.
