Marvel Flatters Fanboys With Create Your Own Wedding Variant

Marvel Flatters Fanboys With Create Your Own Wedding Variant

Check out Phil Noto's variant cover to Astonishing X-Men #51, the highly publicized and (Marvel hopes) controversial gay wedding issue.



You may not have heard, but there will be a gay wedding in Astonishing X-Men #51, and Marvel is hoping to commemorate the event by flattering fanmen with the assumption that some of them have, somehow, against all odds and contrary to Darwinian principles, convinced a member of the opposite (or same) sex to marry them. Phil Noto's variant cover (pictured below) gives fans the opportunity to commemorate their own special day by gluing it to a cover featuring wedding pics from some of Marvel's most famous matrimonial events. Presumably, these nerdy treasures will then be framed and prominently displayed, which should make the aforementioned mythical spouses question where they went wrong in life.

This reporter will be ordering two copies.

Here's the press release:
