DC Comics hires anti-gay author Orson Scott Card to write Superman
: "DC Comics has tapped Orson Scott Card, the Ender's Game
author who has said homosexuality is "deviant behavior,"
to write for its new, digital-first Superman. That has sparked outrage among fans
. Card also suggested in a 2004 essay
that if same-sex marriage is legalized, "our civilization will collapse or fade away." The equality organization All Out has a petition to drop Card
