Superman DCFans are boycotting DC Comics’ selection of “Ender’s Game” author and vocal anti-gay activist Orson Scott Card to pen their “Adventures of Superman” digital-first release.

Last week, DC announced that Card was selected to write the first chapter in the digital “Adventures of Superman” series, and fans quickly responded with a petition calling on the company to renounce Card and “stand for equality”:

DC Comics has just hired anti-gay writer Orson Scott Card for their new digital Adventures of Superman. 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. We need to let DC Comics know they can’t support Orson Scott Card or his work to keep LGBT people as second-class citizens. They know they’re accountable to their fans, so if enough of us speak out now, they’ll hear us loud and clear.
