Marvel Comics to Feature Gay Wedding

Marvel Comics will host a gay wedding this summer. Superhero Northstar will marry his boyfriend Kyle Jinadu in Astonishing X-Men #51. The issue will be released on June 20th.

Northstar came out of the closet in the 1992 comic, Alpha Flight #106. Here’s more from the Associated Press: “In 2002, gay characters Apollo and the Midnighter were married in the pages of ‘The Authority’ published by DC’s Wildstorm imprint. Since then, numerous comic book heroes and villains have been written as gay, lesbian or transgender – from DC Comics’ Kate Kane, aka Batwoman, to Hulking and Wiccan in the pages of ‘Young Avengers.’”

DC Comics will soon reveal that one of its established superheroes is gay. According to The Daily Mail, Twitter readers have been sharing rumors about the character’s identity. Some speculate it could be Bruce Wayne, better known by his nocturnal alter ego Batman.

Earlier this year, Archie Comics featured a gay wedding of their own. Kevin Keller married Mr. Right in issue #16 of the Life with Archie series.
