Fans are protesting against DC Comics for hiring an anti-gay writer to pen Superman.
Orson Scott Card, author of the Ender’s Game sci-fi series, will write a new series of comics for DC’s Adventures of Superman to be published in April.
AllOut has now started a petition, urging DC to fire Card.
It states: ‘He’s written publicly that he believes marriage equality would lead to the end of civilization. He’s also on the board of a notorious anti-equality organization [National Organization for Marriage].
