You may have already heard the news. Or perhaps you already figured it out when Marvel teased the wedding that was coming out. If you've somehow managed to avoid hearing about this, I'd be pretty surprised. But this is your final warning before proceeding.
ASTONISHING X-MEN #50
Today ABC's The View, Marvel announced that Jean-Paul Beaubier, AKA Northstar, proposes to his boyfriend Kyle Jinadu in tomorrow's issue. Northstar first revealed his sexual orientation back in 1992's ALPHA FLIGHT #106. Marjorie Liu and Mike Perkins are putting the relationship to the test and they're about to take their biggest step yet. The question is, how smoothly will their path to wedded matrimony be?
Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso made the following statement:
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. 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.== TEASER ==
Marjorie Liu said:
The story of Northstar and Kyle is universal, and at the core of everything I write: a powerful love between two people who have to fight for it against all odds. This is the quintessential Marvel story, one that blends the modern world with the fantasy of super heroes in order to tell an exciting story that begins with a wedding—and continues in ways you can’t imagine.
If anyone knows how to write relationships, it's Liu.
The wedding is set to take place in ASTONISHING X-MEN #51. Here's a preview for tomorrow's issue.
