COMICS: After 7 Years, Hulkling & Wiccan Share An On-Panel Kiss

Ooops - better keep this away from One Million Moms! Marvel's highest profile gay couple finally kiss in the pages of Avengers: The Children’s Crusade #9..

Bit of a mini-milestone here. After seven years Marvel have finally shown Teddy (Hulkling) Altman and Billy (Wiccan) Kaplan kiss on-panel. May not seem like a too big deal as comics have already broken through many old barriers over the years, but as we know the issue of same sex relationships can still be met with a lot of disapproval in the funny books.. and is definitely still considered a strong visual taboo by many. Here are the relevant scanned pages..





Sounds like there might be another Marvel wedding on the cards! Coincidentally, we have already heard of one earlier that may also wind up being a same sex marriage in Astonishing X-Men.
