Northstar’s Husband Is Already On Manhunt

Well, that was quick. And not exactly a testimonial to gay guys embracing the “sanctity” of marriage. Marvel Comics’ gay X-Man Northstar recently tied the knot in the first gay wedding in comic book history. Vows were exchanged, rice was thrown, and even Wolverine cried happy tears for Jean-Paul (Northstar’s real name – he’s French-Canadian) and his new husband Kyle. That was only a couple of issues ago. The NEW issue of Astonishing X-Men hit the comics shops this week. In it,  Northstar goes off to save the world and Kyle takes out his laptop and logs onto Manhunt! Check out the bottom panel!

Writer Marjorie Liu must have some gay friends, cuz’ she obviously knows what’s what. Comic book superteams are always chock full of soapy drama, so hopefully this is just a bump in the road for the gay mutant and his non-powered hubbie.

We don’t have any confirmation that Kyle is actually logging onto Manhunt to assuage his loneliness, but come on! Even Towleroad assumed he was on our site.

UPDATE: It’s true. We found Kyle’s Manhunt profile. Sad.

The wedding of northstar was not in fact the first gay wedding in comic books, that honor hoes to Archie comics' Kevin earlier in the same year. Northstar was however the first gay superhero to get married.

    ROFLMFAO……. You guys are just wrong……….. Too freaking cute!!!!

  • That profile is a bit funny actually. But, in a sad twist, true. That people in committed relationships do go behind the others back because they are gone a lot or feeling neglected or any number of reasons that they go off and find a quick hook up.
