    Marvel Comics going le ghey

    [IMG]http://www.nypost.com/r/nypost/2012/05/22/news/web_photos/gay185202--525x415.jpg[/IMG]

    Marvel comic book crime fighters X-Men have put down their weapons and picked up wedding rings for the first same-sex marriage in the superhero world, set for June.

    Marvel on Tuesday said Jean-Paul Beaubier, aka Northstar, a Canadian with piercing blue eyes and silver-streaked black hair who can move and fly at superhuman speeds, will propose to his longtime boyfriend Kyle Jinadu in the issue, "Astonishing X-Men #50," due on sale May 23.

    "The Marvel Universe has always reflected the world outside your window, so we strive to make sure our characters, relationships and stories are grounded in that reality," Marvel editor-in-chief, Axel Alonso said in a statement. "We've been working on this story for over a year to ensure Northstar and Kyle's wedding reflects Marvel's 'world outside your window' tradition."

    The pair will marry in the next issue of "Astonishing X-Men #51," on sale June 20, and some comic book retailers will be hosting wedding parties on that day, Marvel said.

    Northstar and Kyle have been a couple since 2009, but Marvel is not promising the pair will live happily ever after. In fact, Marvel asks in its wedding announcement: "Will their path to wedded matrimony in New York City be smooth or are there hidden dangers around the corner?"

    As if battling evildoers and saving the world weren't enough.

    Nice. Gay super heroes, why not.

    Can't wait for XMen 5 in 3d.

    So is DC comics. Ghey is spreading.

    [QUOTE]DC Comics plans to reintroduce a character as gay in a future issue, it has been revealed.

    Co-publisher Dan DiDio previously said that the company would not change the sexual orientation of an existing superhero and would bring in a new one altogether.

    But at Kapow Comic Convention in London on Sunday, he revealed that an existing character - who was previously assumed to be straight - will become ‘one of our most prominent gay characters’, according to comic blog BleedingCool.com.
    Who is it? An existing DC Comics character - who was previously assumed to be straight - will become openly-gay

    Who is it? An existing DC Comics character - who was previously assumed to be straight - will become openly-gay

    Senior VP Sales Bob Wayne said DiDio’s view ‘had evolved’, comparing the shift to Barack Obama’s recent endorsement of same-sex marriage.

    DiDio did not specify which character would ‘come out’ or in which issue it would be featured.

    All super heroes are ghey. Name one that isn't? The villians are mostly ghey too. The whole comic book scene is an excuse for adolescent ghey boys to look at pictures chiseled, well-groomed men in their panties.

    Not that there's anything wrong with that. :rolleyes:

    I think the core demographic has bigger things to worry about.
