How cool is this wedding theme??!!

A Marvel Comic book is the inspiration for this real-life wedding. Back in 1992 Marvel made headlines by revealing that Northstar, an X-Men superhero, was gay. Twenty years later, the character was set to wed his longtime partner Kyle in Astonishing X-Men #51, in stores on June 20 2012.

As an X-Man, Northstar routinely fights against bigotry, as he is a mutant, and mutants are the most feared minority group in the Marvel Universe. Astonishing X-Men writer Marjorie Liu looked to Northstar’s relationship with Kyle as a way to write an inspiring story about characters who feel like outsiders even among outsiders. “Here are two people, trying to live their lives – mutant and gay, black and gay – empowered in their own ways, but also fringe-dwellers,” says Liu. “And they’re making it happen. They’re living life on their own terms.  It doesn’t matter that it’s a superhero comic, the message is: You can do the same thing.”

And that is exactly what a real-life New York couple did – tying the knot in a famous comic book store. X-Men fans Scott Everhart and Jason Welker were selected from more than 50 applicants to get married in New York City’s Midtown Comics in honor of Astonishing X-Men #51 which features the wedding of Northstar to his boyfriend Kyle.lucky in love, marriage celebrant, auckland celebrant, weddings, matakana weddings, matakana celebrant, waiheke wedding, waiheke celebrant, kumeu celebrant, kumeu weddings, north shore celebrant, same sex marriage, gay friendly celebrant
