Marvel & DC Pledge Support For Orlando Victims
Major comic book publishers DC and Marvel have tweeted their support to the LGBT+ community and the victims of the Orlando Pulse shooting.
DC tweeted an image of the classic Superman #14 cover with a new rainbow coloured background to show their support, whilst Marvel have shared the cover for 2012's Avengers Assemble #1 on a rainbow background. Both images were tweeted alongside the hashtag #OrlandoUnited.
As well as tweeting messages of support Marvel and their parent company Disney have donated $1 million to the fund established by Buddy Dyer, Orlando Mayor, to support the victims of the shooting.
