In the upcoming 51st Issue of Marvel Comics Astonishing X-Men, Northstar X-Men’s gay superhero is set to marry his boyfriend Kyle, but in the past few issues the human and powerless Kyle who’s lack of any superhero or mutant abilities has been putting a strain on their relationship.
But never fear in the current issue Number 49, the boys are back together and seem to be indeed headed to the altar for Issue 51 which will be released in June.
According to comics site Bleeding Cool, the issue ships on June 20th and the company has “secured mainstream coverage both on-air and in print, for something that has never been seen inside the pages of a Marvel comic. Not only that, but some retailers are already saving the date and are hosting special wedding events in their stores
Northstar was the first character to come out at Marvel comics and the most well-known, though there have been several openly gay characters since then. While the X-Men are currently based in San Francisco, Northstar is a French-Canadian hero and since same sex marriage is legal in Canada its a good bet that the venue will be North of the Border.
