About Superman’s boyfriend

Jay Nakamura originally debuted in Superman: Son of Kal-El #2 as the voice of “The Truth,” a journalistic organization dedicated to uncovering corruption and injustice across the world, notably in President Henry Bendix’s island nation of Gamorra. Sara Nakamura, Jay’s mother, was the former president of Gamorra before Bendix won the election and had her removed from the public spotlight, and no one, even her son, knows where she is today. Bendix and others experimented on Jay, and he obtained skills that allowed him to travel through solid things and escape his captivity.

Despite meeting in the second issue of the series, Jon and Jay had their first kiss in Son of Kal-El #5, confirming Jon Kent’s bisexuality in comics for the first time. Since then, the two have been together, with Jon joining The Truth with Jay, coming out to his mother Lois Lane, and debunking Batman’s concerns about Jay. The Caped Crusader feels Jon’s lover cannot be trusted since Jay is linked with the Revolutionaries, a group of anti-heroes who don’t oppose killing.
