Yes there is room for marriage in comics. Heck most of Spiderman's greatest stories came out of the time period when he and MJ were married.

Yes, theres room for it in Anime and Manga so why not Western Comics

Depends on the comic.

I think people focus too much on marriage in super hero comics and need to just enjoy the comic. I get that drama is a part of it, but for the most part we read them for whacky stories full of crazy action and inspiring heroics as well as an examination of morality. For certain characters though (like Animal Man, Elongate Man, Sue and Reed) marriage is much more relevant to those characters stories and is a much more central aspect. Other then that though, it's a very minor detail in the grand scheme of the comic.

Over all I think Robinson had the best answer.

All characters should go through their natural progression through life.

Yes I definitely think there is room in comics for marriage. Many characters such as Superman, Spiderman, and The Flashes have all been married and were able to make that a successful part of their history, in many ways it made them more interesting.

I completely disagree with DC's stance right now about not letting heroes getting married. If you encourage diversity in all other areas but then put a limit on displaying only certain kind of relationships (for example with DC, not allowing characters to be married) that comes off as kind of strict and hypocritical.

Yes.

I think the only issue is the lack of writers confident enough to write a marriage in a super hero comic.

Yes, especially if the relationship is written well

Not everyone needs to be married but I don't understand the recent hatred towards marriages. DC's stupid remark of '' No marriage'' stance being one of the reason I barely care about ANY relationships they forced.

Personally, marriage is a big step to say '' yea we trust this direction and dynamic '' and keep a good standing with that decision instead of getting lazy with it. Worst thing it can happen to it ( aside from Mephisto TAKING YOUR MARRIAGE AWAY ) is to turn marriages into 'Celebrity weddings' where it lasts only for a month or so.

So yea, nowadays , I can't seem to find a relation I care about because I know none of those will give me satisfaction or enjoyment in the end. And the other half, they are the out-of-nowhere pairings that a writer decided to put for an arc where no build-up or past connection there to justify it. After that they claim '' it is the HIT couple ! '' ...yea no.

Suffice to say, I am more 'old-school' when it comes to relationships. Might be for worse but in the end, I like a solid foundation and a deeper connection than ''Oh he/she hot and they look good together in paper...lets couple them '' which doesn't give much to me in the story sense.

Yes. But it depends on writers taking the marriages seriously. And this means putting mandates in place that makes sure that a marital status doesn't change every time a new creative team comes into play.

Storm and Black Panther's marriage ended up being a disaster, but it tracked with how her characters' relationships had occurred so we could move on. Even Phoenix and Cyclops' marriage falling apart was handled in a human and understandable way (before the death at the hands of a super villain part). Clark Kent and Lois Lane's marriage, however, has a lot more weight for the "Superman" character so it made sense that there would be fans annoyed with any change in this relationship.

There is but a lot of today's writer's don't know how to handle it well. I loved the fact that Storm and Black Panther got married. I accepted they met when they were younger(retcon). However after the Phoenix Five they were over. Seemed the shortest marriage I've ever seen Marvel do. Luke Cage got married it change his character I think it help define his character along with being a father.

Yes anything can work really, sometimes its a big thing (Reed and Sue, Luke and Jessica) and sometimes its just a small character trait (Jameson and Marla, Multiple Man and Layla Miller, are Beast and Abigail Brand married?)
