Marvel Hints at June Wedding in ASTONISHING X-MEN

Could it be possible for mutants to actually have wedded bliss?

At least now we know the X-Men will survive AVENGERS VS. X-MEN. Today, Marvel sent out what looks very much like a wedding invite.

That's pretty much all the information we have. If you read our interview with the awesome Marjorie Liu, you have a little idea where the series is going. The team featured in ASTONISHING X-MEN will feature Wolverine, Warbird, Gambit, Iceman, Northstar, Cecilia Reyes and Karma. If there is a wedding, chances are it's one of them. If you ask me, my money is on Northstar.

We'll have to wait until June to find out.

ASTONISHING X-MEN #51

Although i think its northstar but  MAYBE it could be gambit and wolverine(or iceman) that would be funny

Gambit and Cecilia......(ducks flying debris hurled her way)

Posted by SilverZeo

The only problem would be is when they'll have a baby... that's when things take a turn for the worst.

Jean and Scott- Stalk by Sinister.

I'm guessing it's Northstar & his boyfriend Kyle, seeing that Northstar is the only character in the new roster who has been in a steady relationship for quite a while.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

I'm counting the days, but yes, it seems Northstar is what this is all about.

Posted by GundamHeavyarms

Im calling it right now, Northstar and Iceman.

Edited by RoninLoganX

Wolverine has been in a pretty steady relationship with Melita, so I would love it for Marvel to have them marry. That would really be a bold and courageous move on Marvel's part, marrying off one of their top characters, but I'm sure it's probably going to end up being Northstar.

Posted by KRYPTON

lol, this is probably Hope Summers getting married to Iceman. However, this could end up being in some sick nightmare that ends up killing another third of the mutant kind.

whose the best man

Posted by Solarflare32

If they actually married wolverine and melitia she would likely be murdered soon after by sabretooth

Posted by frochez

Beast and Celia? It could happen... or Warbird and Iceman?

Remember, just because thats the current team, doesn't mean there won't be guests/line up changes. If not, I'm thinking Gambit/Rogue (no idea if they're still together, just speculation). probably not iceman considering what happened in Wolverine and the X-men #2, and I'm not too sure about the rest of the cast. guess we'll find out soon

Posted by RoninLoganX

@Solarflare32: Not necessarily. She's already proven herself to be pretty tough in the whole Wolverine Goes To Hell ordeal. I think it would be more likely that if and when Jean Grey came back, Logan would end up leaving her for Jean. I mean he named a school after her. Obviously, he's still holding that torch.

Posted by papad1992

Who's to say it can't be Karma and Warbird!? She alien and she's lesbian... It could work...

Posted by Blowout

Any chance Shadowcat and Colossus will work things out?

If not, I like the idea of Beast and Cecilia Reyes!

Posted by Mutant God

most likely Northstar, but Logan and Melita will be a surprise, other couples could be gambit/frenzy or Iceman/Kitty

Posted by ReVamp

No one else thinks it might be Cecilia?

Posted by Kallarkz

Idie and Brood.... BOOM! I just blew your mind.

Posted by sora_thekey

I know everybody is rooting for Northstar but wouldn't be funny if it was Warbird?

Posted by Bestostero

well whoever's wedding it is, it wont last lol

Posted by Skaddix

Northstar and his BF. They have been dating for a while. anyone else would a be a rush wedding.

Posted by sparty-dbq

The only logical option is Northstar. Everyone else is either single or in an "It's complicated" situation. Well, except for Wolverine, but after reading his solo book yesterday, I'm betting a big ol' monkey wrench is gonna get thrown into that.

Posted by LoganRogue24

i hope its Wolverine and Rogue but marvel is to stupid to do that. it better not be Gambit and Rogue yuck.

Posted by GamerGeek360

Wait, Iceman?! I need more series featuring him! Has he been in that this entire time? Or is this just going to be the team come June?

Posted by aerokinesis

gotta be northstar...

Posted by jrock85

I'd rather wait until the solicits for June come out.

Posted by The Impersonator

I can't wait to eat the cake. =P

im going to the honeymoon

Posted by infonation

@LoganRogue24: Wanna know something funny? I hear Rogue and Gambit broke up once but fan demands got so bad somebody got them back together again... I never did find out HOW...

Posted by RedOwl_1

@The Impersonator: Mmmm.....Just imagine the size of that beast :D

Posted by mtrakos

Northstar and iceman (always have been speculation on him being gay)

Posted by garretj

I'm just glad to see that comic book fans are becoming more gay-friendly, because not too long ago I would've expected at least some complaints about the possibility of a gay wedding in a superhero comic. I really hope that's where they're going with this, it would definitely make the most sense from their current lineup.

Posted by Super_SoldierXII

OK, I realize I'm addressing a taboo subject, but here's my two cents regardless;

I think it's great comics allow for homosexuality. I think it's great it's being addressed in an open, accepting and mature fashion. It should be. I think love is inclusive and not exclusive and I don't see 'gay' as perverse nor do I find it offensive in any way, shape or form ...

(feel the need to spell this out because of the inevitable backlash my proceeding paragraph may, or may not, engender)

However, coming from a straight bloke's perogative, I just simply get turned away from material portraying two guys romancing one another. I do. It's my right to choose not to buy into said material not because I think it's wrong, but because I simply don't like watching two dudes in love. I'm comfortable with it, I just don't like it in my entertainment. Some people like violence in their movies, others shy away from it. I'll simply be shying away from this book should it be placing a spotlight on Northstar tying the knot with his beau. I know, if we're honest, I'm not the only straight guy that feels this way.

That said, it would definitely be a step in the right direction should Marvel go ahead with such a project. Good for them.
