Afc Comics Explosion-Next Two Issues Of Astonishing X-Men Will Feature Same Sex Marriage Between Two Main Characters!!!!


AstonishingXMen_50_Preview2

Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

Now most of you in the blogosphere already know about this story and that almost the media outlets have talked about this in one way or another, but for those of you who haven’t heard about this yet, something very interesting is about to occur in the Marvel Universe that will be the talk of the comics world for the next few weeks. So hang on to your seats because you are going to be amazed about what is going to happen.

Edit: Click on the following picture above to see a clip from today’s episode of The View talking about Astonishing X-Men!!!!

As it was mentioned on the popular ABC talk show The View earlier today, the next two issues of Astonishing X-men (#50 and #51) will be featuring the controversial subject of same-sex marriage in which Northstar will propose to his longtime boyfriend Kyle to be engaged.

For me, I find that this has to be one of the most interesting events that has taken place in comic books in recent years. In the past, comic books have dealt with hot button issues such as drug addiction and other controversial topics covered in the main stream media. But with the recent news of President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden supporting gay marriage, is this the right time to showcase this to the American public or will it cause more debate as to whether or not same-sex marriage should be accepted in our culture?

You’ll just have to stay with AFC to find out. I will have more on this story in the days to come as well as all the latest news and reviews related to the world of otaku culture. So until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.

Edit:

I apologize for the lack of updates, I will be updating the site with new information in the days and weeks to come. Thank you for your patience and virtue during this brief hiatus!!!!!

  1. Seems like it has been a long time coming (figuratively that is). It is cool that they are doing this. It is not that different from when they talked about drugs which was groundbreaking in the past.

    Thought I think they had to do men and not women partners as I don’t feel it would of had the same affect to the people reading.

      I agree, it’s not too surprising that they decided to do this, since Obama and Biden came out supporting same sex marriage. My take on it is that we need to show our younger generation about different cultures and relationships, so I don’t think this is a bad idea at all.

  2. Oh….shit. Lol I don’t even want to THINK about the crazy people reading it who will complain & protest its hurting child development. You know, TinTin released a comic with a gay character in it. I can’t remember if a wedding was involved, but a WHOLE bunch of people got bent over it.
