Check Out The First Pages Of 'X-Men's' Gay Wedding Issue: IMAGES


Astonishing X-Men #51 doesn't come out until next month, but publisher Marvel Comics has already released a few unlettered pages from the issue featuring the same-sex marriage of one of the team's gay members, Northstar. Check them out AFTER THE JUMP.

Meanwhile, the issue in which Northstar proposed to boyfriend Kyle has reportedly seen a surge of reorders in anticipation of a sell-out.

Before that, though, you can see the first four pages and two covers AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. I had the pleasure of meeting Marjorie Liu (the current writer of "Astonishing X-Men") this past weekend in Boston. She was absolutely lovely and gracious and very excited about plans for both the wedding and events in the title afterwards.

  3. Are folks overlooking the fast forward page that shows in a few months the happy couple will not be so happy?

    Seriously, why make a big deal out of a wedding only to see the marriage fall apart a few months later?

  4. That's not a flash forward page John. That's a flashback.

  5. Every Marvel couple has drama; even now, Northstar and Karl are in conflict because Karl doesn't feel equal to Northstar/Jean-Paul. Cyclops and Jean Grey (The Phoenix) didn't last because she has to be killed every time she has to come to life. Even now, Storm and her husband are on opposite ends because she is an X-men and he's an Avenger and they're fighting. There's no "Happily ever after" in the world of Marvel.
