During the San Diego Comic-Con panel for "Ender's Game" -- and fresh from sitting down live with MTV -- sci-fi legend Harrison Ford was asked to share his thoughts about "Ender's Game" author Orson Scott Card's statement regarding the tolerance of his own, anti-gay views.

Ford said, "I think we all know that we've won. That humanity has won. And that's the end of the story," to massive cheers from he crowd.

Card's remarks were:

Ender’s Game is set more than a century in the future and has nothing to do with political issues that did not exist when the book was written in 1984.

With the recent Supreme Court ruling, the gay marriage issue becomes moot. The Full Faith and Credit clause of the Constitution will, sooner or later, give legal force in every state to any marriage contract recognized by any other state.

Now it will be interesting to see whether the victorious proponents of gay marriage will show tolerance toward those who disagreed with them when the issue was still in dispute.

We've seen Ford play some of the most iconic heroes in the history of Hollywood, but IMO, I think today, he's a hero for real.
