Marvel Comics plans wedding for gay hero Northstar

PHILADELPHIA — Wedding bells will ring this summer for Marvel Comics’ first openly gay hero, super speedster Northstar, and his longtime boyfriend.

The New York-based publisher said Tuesday that Canadian character Jean-Paul Beaubier will marry his beau, Kyle Jinadu, in the pages of “Astonishing X-Men” No. 51. That’s due out June 20.

Northstar revealed he was gay in the pages of “Alpha Flight” No. 106 in 1992, one of Marvel Entertainment’s first characters to do so.

Ten years later, in 2002, gay characters Apollo and the Midnighter were married in the pages of “The Authority” published by DC’s Wildstorm imprint.
