Entertainment : X-Man Northstar Proposes To His Man
Yesterday, was new arrivals day on comic book stores and in the batch, the issue number 50 of Astonishing X-Men.
It is not any random issue, but the issue where Northstar, a gay superhero has proposed to his long time partner.
Northstar gets down on one knee in his civilian identity, to hold up a ring to his man.
Northstar and his partner will get married in Central Park in issue 51, which will arrive next month.
Gay characters are not new in comic books and are becoming increasingly common. Northstar revealed he was gay in 1992.
In 2010 the long-running Archie Comics series debuted its first gay character. And DC Comics, which has a gay character in Batwoman, announced few days ago that one of its other marquee super heroes would soon come out of the closet.
Who will it be ? Batman?
