PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Wedding bells will ring this summer for Marvel Comics’ first openly gay hero, super speedster Northstar.

The New York-based publisher said Tuesday that Canadian character Jean-Paul Beaubier will marry his beau, Kyle Jinadu, in the pages of “Astonishing X-Men” No. 51. That’s due out June 20.

Mark Dayton will be so excited. (Northstar is also the nickname of MN)

No wonder they shortened the name to “Stars” when the hockey team came here from Minnesota.

So their “alternate lifestyle” must spread its tentacles to every media and entertainment venue, lest one American miss their message? Imagine if Christians or the Tea Party tried this.

Bleh. Northstar’s a minor Marvel character anyhow. He and his split-personality fraternal twin sister Jeanne-Marie (aka Aurora); Marvel gave them a real unstable family background too.

Earlier articles inferred that it would be a major superhero ( Batman, Superman, etc ) who would be outed. I never heard of this one. Think the backlash stopped them from career killing a biggie?

Well, she is hot and if her "partner" is equally as hot, sales will go through the roof.

I don't have a problem with hot lesbos.

I guess his super powers aren’t the only thing that makes him a mutant. Being Canadian makes it more believable, eh?

These are the death rattles of a once thriving and proud industry that told tales of heroics and wonder for kids and adults without getting mired in politics, liberalism and overt sexual issues. In other words, they were escapism. Now, most thinking readers have escaped the comics instead!

Today, a title is considered successful if it sells over 50,000 copies. In the 90s, it was 100,000 copies. In the 80s, 250,000 and so on, back to million sellers like Superman, Donald Duck and Captain Marvel in the 1940s. I would not be surprised if Disney (Marvel) and Time-Warner (DC) cut their losses and eliminate the publishing divisions and mine the characters for multi-million dollar movies for years to come.

I bet they won’t take the “courageous” stand and put a gay character in Avengers II. Not when there is a risk of losing actual money by offending the audience. That’s not the case in comics.

I’m sure they will get around to “fixing” that problem.

This is actually Marvel Comics, not DC Comics. DC is the one with the upcoming outed character. Northstar has been around and has been out for a while now.

Got it. Wondering if DC is going to see how well this does to gauge how far they go forward with their plan.

So it looks like all other flying superheroes will now have to check their six more than before.

I’m convinced the entire comics publishing industry has turned lavender. DC plans to turn one of its superheroes gay. Marvel comes up with this obscure token gay superhero. Last summer while perusing the programming for San Diego Comic Con, I noticed the majority of comics panels were gay-themed. Gay this, gay that, gay, gay, gay. No wonder the medium is dying out.

Not to worry It will be sanctified by the Rt. Reverend B. Hussein 0.(”I’ve evolved to favor ‘gay marriage’”), Presiding.

Not exactly. We’re the “North Star State.”

However, the state motto of “L’Etoile du Nord” (The Star of the North) comes painfully close too.

Who cares?

Most gay guys aren't thinking about the wedding plans...

Most interesting is the creator, Marjorie Liu, doesn’t have any info on her family or private life listed on linkedin or wiki.

One of the top editors at Marvel or DC was an out homosexual. The head of Disney is.

It’s about ushering in “change”, not equality. They seek to push propaganda in the culture war.

The only winning move is to boycott Big Media.

They don’t see a dime when you buy used books, movies, albums...

This is an additional coming out. This is Marvel Comics. DC comics announce the other day...probably going to be Superman...er... Thuperman.

A few years back, Marvel retroactively made Rawhide Kid gay.

This sure is a killer to the old classic Superman/Wonder woman joke with the punchline “not half as surprised as the invisible man.”

Swell. Maybe after DC has outed their gay superhero, they can do a crossover episode where they double-date and go clubbing.

I think I’ve seen more threads today about gay comic-book characters than anything else.
