Orson Scott Card Hired to Write New 'Superman' Comic

DC Comics has come under fire for hiring noted anti-gay writer Orson Scott Card to create a new digital Superman comic book that will be published in April. The author of the popular science fiction book Ender's Game has called gay marriage "the end of democracy." Some comics fans want him fired, and they're boycotting DC Comics. "Superman stands for truth, justice, and the American way. Orson Scott Card does not stand for any idea of truth, justice or the American way that I can subscribe to," said Jono Jarrett of Geeks Out. A film of Ender's Game, co-produced by Card and starring Harrison Ford, is scheduled to be released in November.
