AlphaFlight.net - Northstar to propose to Kyle in Astonishing X-Men #50
  • Northstar to propose to Kyle in Astonishing X-Men #50

    Today on ABC's The View it was confirmed that the upcoming proposal in tomorrow's Astonishing X-Men #50 is indeed from Jean-Paul to Kyle.

    Co-host Whoopi Goldberg broke the news:



    Whoopi - "Marvel is making history with a comic hitting newsstands tomorrow. In Astonishing X-Men #50, openly gay X-Man Northstar wil propose to his boyfriend Kyle, with a gay wedding to follow in an upcoming issue. That's kinda fantastic."
    Elisabeth - "That's good."
    Whoopi - "You know what I love about this? When I was a kid and bought these magazines, you never saw an array of people. Now there are black people there, gay people there ... it's kind of amazing."
    Barbara - "Good for them."

    The double-spread Weaver/Rosenberg cover for #51 was shown, featuring Alpha Flight characters and is now online thanks to Marvel:

      Heh, no. I meant the royal "we", or the "we" which means "fans of Northstar and Kyle".

      Trust me, if alphaflight.net made it into TIME magazine, it would be on the front page of the site, not buried in an comment on an archived news piece from last month!
