Marvel – creating role models for everyone

So another famous wedding is in the process!

Northstar, the first superhero to come out in comic book history is finally getting married!

This will be happening in the upcoming 51st issue of Astonishing X-Men!!

“When gay marriage became legal in New York State, it raised obvious questions since most of our heroes reside in New York State. Northstar is the first openly gay character in comics and he’s been in a longterm relationship with his partner Kyle so the big question was – how would this change his relationship?,” says Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Axel Alonso. “Our comics are always best when they respond to and reflect developments in the real world. We’ve been doing that for decades, and this is just the latest expression of that.”
