Is Iceman really the pass around party bottom of the Marvel Universe?


It’s the gay X-Men coupling of the year!

Marvel’s Voices: Pride is releasing a new one-shot comic, X-Men: The Wedding Special #1, and fans are finally getting to see the wedding of one of the most famous queer couples in comics – Mystique and Destiny.

In the comics, Mystique and Destiny have been together for over a hundred years, and now, we finally get to see when they secretly married and a new renewal of those vows. This marks the first woman-to-woman wedding in Marvel Comics history!

X-Men: The Wedding Special #1 hits stores on May 29.

X-Men: The Wedding Special is written by Kieron Gillen, and also features bonus stories highlighting other queer characters like Betsy Braddock and Rachel Summers and Loki, written and drawn by queer comics talent like Tini Howard and Wyatt Kennedy. The main cover is by Jan Bazaldua.

While the issue focuses on the love between Mystique and Destiny, a lot of fans online have been distracted by a certain hunky muscle bear and twink that grace one of the issue’s variant covers.

In this cover, drawn and colored by Russell Dauterman, many queer Marvel characters like America Chavez, Loki, Black Cat, Nico and Karolina from The Runaways, Spider-Gwen, and Web-Weaver stand in front of a colorful background.

In the middle of these characters is a smugly smiling Hercules with his arm around a pleasantly pleased Iceman. And just like that… the internet has a new favorite Marvel couple.

Of course, fans across social media are freaking out about this new pair. At first, fans were just loving the couple, but the love quickly turned into an argument over who would be the top and who would be the bottom.

So, what do you think? Who's the bottom here?
