We've heard a lot about the upcoming wedding in ASTONISHING X-MEN. The main focus has been because it will be Northstar marrying his boyfriend, Kyle. This shouldn't be big or shocking news in the real world but in comics, same-sex marriage has only happened a few times. In those terms, this is a big deal for the world of the X-Men. It's been a long time coming and now we can all partake in the celebration.
