Actor Dean Cain, who played Superman in the ABC series "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" from 1993 to 1997, has slammed DC Comics for making the new Superman bisexual.

The 55-year-old actor believes the comic book is not heading in a "bold new direction" and instead it is "bandwagoning." 

"I don't think it's bold or brave or some crazy new direction," he said as per the New York Post.

"Robin just came out as bi — who's really shocked about that one? The new Captain America is gay. My daughter in [the TV series] 'Supergirl,' where I played the father, was gay," he explained. "If they had done this 20 years ago, perhaps that would be bold or brave."

The actor went on to give ideas on how the comic could have made the character brave. He suggested it could have made Superman fight for the "rights of gay people in Iran," where a person can be thrown off a building for being gay.

"They're talking about having him fight climate change and the deportation of refugees and he's dating a hacktivist — whatever a hacktivist is," he said further.

Cain further spoke about Afghanistan and refugees, suggesting Superman should "fight the injustices that created the refugees whose deportation he’s protesting," adding, "That would be brave."

He also said Superman could have fought against the Taliban for women's right to attend school and get a job.

"Fighting for the rights of women to attend school and have the ability to work and live and boys not to be raped by men under the new warm and fuzzy Taliban," he added. "That would be brave."

Cain's reaction came after Tom Taylor, the DC Comic series writer, told The New York Times Monday the new Superman would be bisexual. On the same day, the official Twitter handle of DC Superman dropped a poster featuring the new Superman and his new love interest, Jay Nakamura.

The new Superman will come out as a bisexual in the upcoming issue, "Superman: Son of Kal-El #5," which is slated for release on Nov. 9.
