Who else has actually been reading Earth 2?

I have to say. After all the controversy surrounding turning Earth 2's Green Lantern gay, now it just seems silly.

I know many people were probably scared that they'd write Alan Scott as the stereotypical flamboyant gay character that you see in a lot of media. But it's come off as quite the opposite. It's been done very tasteful where Alan Scott comes off as genuine, deep character who is also gay. Kudos to James Robinson.

There's still the issue of Jade and Obsidian being unlikely to ever happen, though, lol. Then again, there's no reason that they HAVE to be Alan Scott's kids if they do decide to bring them into the New 52 down the road (or that they even have to be on Earth 2).

What is everyone else's thoughts on this, now that the controversy has died down?

This is one of the best nu52 titles I've been reading (I never read JSA so, no emotional ties to the characters for me - nothing has been 'ruined').
Other people's sexual orientations have never mattered to me one way or another, so Alan being gay in this book was a non-issue for me. The writing so far has indeed been quite good.
