During Superman: Son of Kal-El, the way to address Jon Kent’s new girlfriend in the hearts of millions of people around the world who read has been a tumultuous path, but it seems Jay Nakamura has already won over them in the DC Universe. If nothing else, he has certainly won the heart of one key figure in both the DC Universe and Jon Kent’s life: Robin himself, Damian Wayne.
After sharing their first kiss in the previous issue, Jon Kent and Jay Nakamura collaborate to overthrow a dictator in Superman: Son of Kal-El # 6 by Tom Taylor, John Timms, Hi-Fi and Dave Sharpe. After Jay offered the origin story of how President Bendix of Gamorra played a role in gaining his powers and how he tortured a nation of people including Jay’s mother, Jon agreed that they are best suited to break into his facility to find out. the full extent of his plans. They are not alone as Jon’s best friend Damian Wayne, unaware of them, is already there trying to uncover the conspiracy himself.
Robin and Jay do not exactly get on the best first foot as they almost get bumped before realizing they are sharing an ally with Superman. Afterwards, though, Robin warms up for Jay almost instantly. In fact, using the classic Bat family intuition, Damian is able to easily decipher that Jon and Jay are dating, and he approves of it and tells Jon that he is happy on his behalf. And so should the rest of the world.
When DC Comics first announced that Jon Kent would come out as bisexual at some point during Superman: Son of Kal-El, the news came with its own fair share of both supporters and critics. When Superman shared his first kiss with Jay Superman: Son of Kal-El # 5, the global reaction seemed to be just as divisive. But if ever there has been a character who could or at least should be able to convince an audience to support this new direction in Jon Kent’s life, it’s Damian Wayne.
It is not easy for any member of the Bat family to warm up to someone in their life. Maybe it’s a family move, or maybe it’s the common trauma of seeing everyone they love die, but Batman or his foster children are willing to give their loving approval to someone so quickly. Damian did not even warm up to his own best friend, Jon, so quickly at their first meeting, but he almost immediately likes Jay. These critics divided Superman‘s new partner could learn a thing or two from Damian Wayne by warming up to Jay Nakamura sooner rather than later.
