Man of Tomorrow: Superman, Orson Scott Card and Me : NPR
Let’s make this perfectly clear at the outset: I don’t work for NPR, and what I’m about to say doesn’t represent NPR. I’m but a lowly freelancer they’re dumb enough to publish a bunch, and what I say now I say as me, which is to say:
1. An inveterate Superman nerd, and
2. A gay dude.
DC Comics has hired Orson Scott Card to write the first two issues of a new digital-first Superman comic. I won’t be reading it.
I’ve known that I’d ignore the Card written Superman since I first heard of it. That said, this is the best explanation of _why_ one should ignore this blip in the history of Superman. What Superman is and how he relates to us and why, in the end, it’s a terrible thing for a bigot like Card to be writing for Superman.
