Based on this teaser, one infers that there is a X-Men wedding to come in this June’s ASTONISHING by Marjorie Liu and Mike Perkins, which has already been hyped as a much-talked-about issue. So who will tie the knot? We’re not up on current X-Men mythology and can’t hazard a guess but popular internet speculation is guessing Northstar and Kyle will tie the knot, making this the first blow for marriage equality in the Marvel U. Another gay couple, Hulkling and Wiccan, just kissed, perhaps paving the way.

Or could it be Scott and Emma?



  1. Has someone sent this to One Million Moms with all appropriate speculation attached? I’m sure the book could use the sales boost…

  2. Has there been a steadfast married couple in the Marvel U, free of deaths, separations, or retcons?

  3. “Do you take this mutant until death, resurrection, reboot, retcon, revelation that one of you is an imposter/clone/skrull/alternate universe duplicate, deal with the devil, editorial fiat, disgruntled writer who liked you better when you were single, or cancellation do you part?” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

  4. If it’s a gay marriage, then there is no point to writing about it anymore. Gay marriage will have become mainstream and norm, because we all know that comic books are typically two to five years behind in everything.
