Just a tad…

“The first openly gay Marvel comic book character will marry his boyfriend in an upcoming issue of Astonishing X-Men. The character, Northstar, a Canadian superhero who first came out as gay in 1992, is set to propose in an issue of the comic that goes on sale today.”, via Globe and Mail

It’s not so much why.  It’s just that it’s about bloody time.  What took you guys so long.
