1. In one of DC Comic’s ’90s-era AIDS-related PSAs, the Green Lantern swoops in to save two gay men who are being attacked because an unruly mob thinks all gay people — and only gay people — get the disease.

    “Not all gay people have AIDS,” says Green Lantern Hal Jordan. “Yes, gay communities were hit early and hard by the AIDS epidemic. But now AIDS is spreading fastest among people you wouldn’t expect.”

    The Green Lantern wasn’t the only DC hero to tackle stereotypes
