LONDON—DC Comics continues to face criticism over its decision to hire a former National Organization for Marriage board member to write the next chapter of the Superman franchise.

The Guardian reported on Monday the company commissioned Orson Scott Card to write for its upcoming Adventure of Superman series scheduled to be published in April. The newspaper described Card as “a long-time critic of homosexuality” who said same-sex marriage is “the end of democracy in America.”

All Out has launched an online petition to urge DC Comics to reverse its decision to hire Card.
