In a move that has gained the company plenty of publicity, and ruffled a few feathers along the way, Marvel is prepping its first-ever gay marriage between two of its characters in next month's Astonishing X-Men #51. Northstar, a member of the X-Men, and his partner Kyle will be making comic book history in front of a crowd of humans and mutants alike in this issue by writer Marjorie Liu and artist Mike Perkins.

Now Marvel has provided us with some preview art and a brief synopsis from the issue, which will be in stores on June 20. Check them out below:
