Marvel Comics’ gay Canadian superhero Northstar (aka Jean-Paul Beaubier) marries his long-term boyfriend Kyle Jinadu in the latest issue of Astonishing X-Men.
The ceremony takes place in New York City, reflecting that state’s recent legalization of same-sex marriage. The creators say they are eager to flesh out both characters and their relationship; like many mixed marriages, expect this mutant Canadian/black American couple to be tested in story lines to come. But for now it’s all Lycra and lace for the newlyweds.
Written by Marjorie Liu and illustrated by Mike Perkins, issue #50 is on stands now.
