In a monumental moment for comic book history, Marvel Comics has unveiled the much-anticipated 'X-Men Wedding Special’. This extraordinary issue celebrates the union of two iconic characters, Mystique and Destiny, marking Marvel’s first woman-to-woman wedding.


The narrative, crafted by acclaimed writer Kieron Gillen and artist Rachael Stott, explores the intricate 100-year romance between Raven Darkholme (Mystique) and Irene Adler (Destiny). The story provides new insights into their relationship and offers a glimpse at their original, never-before-told wedding.


The ‘X-Men Wedding Special’ is part of this year’s ‘Marvel’s Voices: Pride’, an annual anthology that celebrates Pride Month with stories crafted by incredible LGBTQIA+ talent. The comic book special was released on May 29.


The narrative doesn’t just focus on the couple. It also includes a variety of diverse examinations of different characters reacting to the wedding. From Wolverine to Betsy “Captain Britain” Braddock and Rachel “Askani” Summers, everyone has a role to play.


The comic book special is not just a celebration of love, but also a reflection of Marvel’s commitment towards diversity and representation, providing a platform for LGBTQIA+ voices.
