Friday Night Fights: Maxim - Round 12: Here Comes The Groom!

In case you haven't been reading the comics blogosphere, Marvel's first officially gay superhero, Northstar, just proposed to his love Kyle, and the two are getting married in June. This is officially the first same-sex superhero wedding in comics.

The reaction to this milestone event, both inside and outside the commics community, has been mixed, with some readers in favor of the upcoming nuptials, some doggedly against, and many more saying "Who?"

For the latter group, let me give you some basics: Northstar (aka Jean-Paul Beaubier) was introduced in the late 70's as a member of the Canadian super-team Alpha Flight and later went on to co-star in the group's ongoing title. He came out in 1992 in that same series.

Also? He can fly really, really fast, as our final round of Friday Night Fights: Maxim will demonstrate.

Tonight's Canadian combat occurs in Alpha Flight#12, written and illustrated by Northstar co-creator John Byrne, who had intended for Jean-Paul to be gay all along but was nixed by Marvel editorial. Synopsis: Alpha Flight is battling for their lives against Omega Flight. One of the Omegas, Wild Child, is about to kill Northstar's twin sister Aurora, but Northstar isn't going to let that happen.

However, he doesn't stop there.



Tonight's fight music is this bouncy little tune by Sugarcult.

Wasn't Kevin Keller the first gay marriage in comics? Or was that just a commitment ceremony?

Kevin indeed was, so I changed it to "first SUPERHERO wedding".

Apollo and Midnighter of The Authority's wedding was over 10 years ago.
