Great Caesar’s Ghost!
DC Comics has announced a digital-first series called the Adventures of Superman this week, which is launching in April which will be written by notorious homophobe and National Organization for Marriage board member and sci-fi author Orson Scott Card
Among those contributing are ComicsAlliance favorites Jeff Parker (Bucko, Red She-Hulk) and Chris Samnee (Daredevil, The Rocketeer: Cargo of Doom), who will collaborate on a story about Superman’s first encounter with Lex Luthor. But before that, Adventures of Superman begins with a two-part story written by popular novelist Orson Scott Card (Ender’s Game) and drawn by the great Chris Sprouse and Karl Story
Card who called for the overthrow of government if Prop 8 failed most recent works included a re-writing of Hamlet in which Old King Hamlet was gay, an evil child molester and ghostly father of lies who convinces young Hamlet to exact imaginary revenge on innocent people
An appalling decision by DC Comics who has recently been working towards being gay and lesbian inclusive with such characters as Batwoman and the Green Lantern.
Perhaps they don’t realize that by hiring Card the money they give will in turn be used to harm the LGBT community.
Perhaps next they can hire someone who’s in the KKK to write Wonder Woman?
