Petitioners are boycotting the selection of author Orson Scott Card, set to pen a story for an "Adventures of Superman" digital-first release. Opponents of Card's are taking issue with the writer's anti-gay efforts.

On Feb. 6, it was announced that Card will write the first digital chapter of "Adventures of Superman," which is set to debut online in April before hitting shelves in print, according to IGN Entertainment. But fans of the DC Comics series and proponents of equal rights bashed the appointment of Card, according to Pink News.

A petition was created on against Card. A description on the petition's page reads thus:

OUTRAGE: 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.
