DC Comics under fire for hiring pro marriage writer to pen Superman
Superman fans are up in arms at the decision of the publisher to appoint a noted anti-gay writer to pen the Man of Steel’s latest adventures.
Comic giant DC has commissioned Orson Scott Card, author of the award-winning and best-selling Ender’s Game sci-fi series, to write for DC’s Adventures of Superman series. The digital comic is set to be published in April.
The news has sparked a furious backlash from Card’s critics. Card is a long-time critic of homosexuality and has called gay marriage “the end of democracy in America”. In 2009 he became a board member of the National Organization for Marriage, a group that campaigns against same-sex marriage.
