NYC Comic Book Store Marries Gay Couple To Celebrate Marvel's First Gay Superhero Wedding

Same sex xmen wedding celebration

What a wonderful idea!

New York City's Midtown Comics wanted to celebrate the same-sex marriage of Marvel's first openly gay superhero, so they did the next best thing and married two gay comic book fans!

The shop announced the wedding giveaway in honor of Astonishing X-Men #51, in which Northstar ties the knot, and then selected a couple from Columbus, Ohio.

Scott Everhart and Jason Welker weren't even engaged yet, but that changed once Scott received a request to be interviewed. He showed the love of his life the email, then got down on one knee to pop the question!

Two weeks later they flew to the Big Apple and were wed in a private ceremony last Wednesday, of which Welker said:

"It was just us. We didn’t have to worry about what other people wanted us to do for our wedding."

Since the couple had their first date at a comic book store, the wedding was a dream come true and made their one-year relationship come "full circle." Everhart even INTRODUCED his boyfriend to X-Men on that first date, so the event was particularly special to them.

Considering both are out and proud of their love for comics AND each other, we can't imagine there was a better way to take the next step.

Congrats, guys!

    Do gays read a lot of comic books? If they do, it would explain so much, like why they look so gay at pride parades and other events that celebrate the deviant things they do with their genitals.

    Re: Omniscient Gal – Do you have one original idea of your own in your head? You seem like some computer spitting out passages from something some bigot wrote in the middle ages. And to think just yesterday you claimed you were not homophobic. Unfortunately for you, your posts speak for themselves. You are just as delusional as you are irrational.
