The hetero-dominated world of comic books has been seriously shaken this week as both DC and Marvel made huge gay story line announcements. As DC gets ready to out one of their major characters, the gay-wedding bells are ringing over in the Marvel universe as the French Canadian superhero Northstar proposes and marries his beau Kyle in Astonishing X-Men #51. Northstar became the first openly gay superhero in 1992, but it took him two decades to find a boyfriend (you and us both Northstar). From the look of it, the wedding appears to be a well-attended affair. Congrats mutants.
