Astonishing X-Men #51

Comic book weddings are always big shakin's, since it's usually standard practice to never let characters mature all that much, and apparently when they do, Satan has to get involved. However, with Marvel's big gay wedding issue Astonishing X-Men #51 on the horizon, why not celebrate the moments of the past where nuptials were allowed?

Jean Paul Beaubier, aka Northstar, will be marrying his longtime love Kyle Jinadu in ASX #51, which will have this interesting variant cover option where you can "Create Your Own Wedding," so to speak. A big blank space on the cover to put your photo alongside famous Marvel couples. One notable exception – Peter Parker's marriage to Mary Jane Watson, the absolute most famous Marvel wedding that was expunged from continuity by Joe Quesada – er, Mephisto, aka Satan. Amazing Spider-Man writer Dan Slott talked a lot about that whole brouhaha in our 100th Book Report Podcast about why that's not such a big deal, but that beaming MJ smile feels like it's missing from this celebration. Other than that, kinda nifty and obscure with their choices.

Check out this "Create Your Own Wedding" variant cover to Astonishing X-Men #51, from Phil Noto.
