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?


Obama Says He Wasn't Angry at Biden for 'Jumping the Gun' on Gay Marriage Endorsement: VIDEO

Here's another clip from Obama's appearance on The View (via Politico) in which Joy Behar asks Obama if he was angry at Biden for "jumping the gun" on his same-sex marriage evolution with his remarks on Meet the Press three days before Obama's announcement.

Said Obama:

"I was OK with it because it came out of a generosity of spirit. You know, when you get to know Joe Biden, he is the most honest, straightforward guy...We talked about it and what I said was I’m never gonna blame anybody for telling what they believe because I think it’s important for everybody in my administration to feel like we want to be disciplined, we want to make sure we're getting the message out there, but at the same time, on issues of principle … to go ahead and speak their minds.”
