Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and they/them.
DC Comics is introducing a non-binary character in “Kid Quick,” who will appear next month in a holiday-themed comic book anthology called “DC’s Merry Multiverse.”
The alternate-universe character, like The Flash, can move at super speed and will use the “they/them” pronouns when being referenced.
Kid Quick joins the “Suicide Squad” character The Aerie, a non-binary antihero, and Marvel Comics’ two non-binary characters, “Snowflake” and “Safespace.”
The Flash has been around in comics since 1939 in various incarnations that include multiple Earths and personas. It became a popular TV show on The CW in 2014.
Kid Quick will appear after the holiday run as The Flash in an upcoming comic book series, Future State: Justice League.
