Gay X-Man Northstar's Wedding To Be Announced On 'The View'?

XMenSaveTheDateDespite the fact that we all know that gay X-Man Northstar will soon marry his boyfriend, publisher Marvel has remained cagey on the details.

That will most likely change tomorrow, because the ladies of The View will be making a "major Marvel announcement" that "will have everyone talking," Bleeding Cool reports.

Meanwhile, DC Comics publicity veep Courtney Simmons spoke to ABC News about their "reintroduction" of a known character as gay and said the hero will be "iconic."

“One of the major iconic DC characters will reveal that he is gay in a storyline in June,” she said.

This lends some credence to speculation that the new gay hero will be Superman from Earth-2. Yeah, there are parallel worlds and parallel Supermen. It's a comic book, so they can get away with it, but DC had better not go too far. We know all what happens then.

As for the recent spate of gay characters in comic books, Matt Kane from GLAAD remarked to ABC: “DC and (archrival) Marvel are recognizing that there is an LGBT audience that has been reading their comics for years. When creating these fictional worlds it’s important to show the full diversity.”

Curiously, Kane's last name is the same as lesbian hero Batwoman's alter ego, Kate Kane. Coincidence?

  4. We serve the few and the proud and the intellectually & morally alert reader—and for that we are proud OF YOU. Most people DON’T GET YOU – to them you are anti-commercial and know nothing about being a good capitalists – but morality and conscience has to mean something--you recognize a simple fact—that your time here is short—and you make your mark how ever small. But do not fail to take your shot--integrity is valuable --to NOT be--sellouts is meaningful. ON SOME LEVEL WE @ CONFORM, INC ARE A VICTIM of our own success-and in fact contradictory--addressing global death (warming?) misogyny, racism, poverty, EQUAL RIGHTS-- has attracted the ire of many—yet our success has meant that not once, out of 11 issues have we been able to meet demand. A demand a larger company would view as minuscule. So we understand who you are and who we serve.

    YOU ARE NOT FOR SALE—and you are proud to read the number 1001 comic in the world—you will keep defending natives, minorities, women and the environment.

    And we sincerely thank you for your bravery & support & IF RASICITS, MYSOGNISTS & THE 1% WANT TO HATE US-AS FDR SAID; “I WELCOME THEIR HATE.” As you are not defined only by your friends but perhaps more so by your enemies.

    Underdogs Rock! UNDERDOGS RULE! UNDERDOGS CONFORM!
