So the "create your own wedding" variant of Astonishig X-Men #51 has been release.




While the Phil Noto art is nice, most of these marriages ended horribly.

I did notice the empty picture frame, clearly intended for a once-famous Marvel Marriage that has since been retconned.

Nicely played, guys. Nicely played.

Jessica & Luke = currently separated
Pietro & Crystal = messy marriage and messier divorce
Scott & Jean = somewhere during all those deaths/ resurrections / infidelities /fights...they were married-ish

In the first issue to New Avenger's AVX tie-in. Shortly before the Cap informs the Avengers about the Phoenix and plans for Utopia, Jessica and Luke talk about what happened with Norman/HAMMER and basically throws the ultimatum that her and the baby are leaving the Mansion, and Luke can either come with them or not. Then the news drops, and it ends with Luke leaping off the Helecarrier to fight in Utopia.

Wait, wait, wait. When did they separate? They already separated after Civil War, then got back together. What the hell reason they have to separate this time? I swear if this is gonna be a back and forth thing for them... Sometimes I just want to slap the shit out of somebody.

I know, right?

As soon as I saw this I thought...

Charles and Lilandra - Not actually married AFAIK
Jan and Hank - Divorced, then wife died
Pietro and Crystal - Divorced
Vision and Wanda - Divorced (to say the least)
Scott and Jean - Were pretty close to divorce when she died.
Namor and Marrina - She died, then seems to have come back with a completely different personality, and I don't think they're together any more.

Luke and Jessica -Together
Reed and Sue - Together, though why divorce never happened after Civil War was never entirely clear.

Not exactly encouraging is it?

Reed's dependence on Sue is very important (and the best FF writers highlight this). Reed has SEEN literal versions of himself without Sue to keep him grounded become megalomaniac villains. Reed has SEEN alt-future versions of the FF in which he and Sue are together (in the ones they're not - everything went to hell). Reed has been killed off in the comics (except not really) and for over a year in the comics Sue would not give up on him and believe him dead despite the fact Namor was hogging her every step telling her to let go. Outside of Civil War-era Reed, the current crop of Marvel writers I think have done a good job with the Sue/Reed marriage and its importance. Hickman especially was my favorite (along with Waid) of the recent FF writers because he didn't even bother to go along with the normal Namor tempting Sue route (even when Reed was distracted) but instead had Sue being dismissive of Namor and his come-ons (which considering he's been basically a stalker for decades makes perfect sense).

Well, Sue and Reed went on leave for a while to work on their marriage, leaving Storm and Black Panther to take their places on the FF. Thus putting Storm one team closer to being a member of every super-group in the Marvel universe. (Beast still has her beat.)

"Charles and Lilandra - Not actually married AFAIK"

I believe the term was annulment--it happened during Morrison's run, where Cassandra Nova, using Xavier's body, manipulated Lilandra's mind and made her go a little crazy. Last time they saw each other after the incident, Illandra was trying to assassinate Xavier.

Charles and Lilandra - Not actually married AFAIK

Not sure if they've had an Earth marriage, but he was given the title of Chief Consort, or something like that, by the Shi'ar during one of the Jim Lee space stories. So he might've had a Shi'ar ceremony behind the scenes.

What I find funny is that while I'm assuming the redhead in the Cyclops wedding picture is supposed to be Jean, the wedding dress she's wearing is Maddie's. (Madelyne's dress had sleeves and looked a lot better than Jean's.)

Aaaand four of these women are dead and less than half of these couples are still together.

Hmm...so Marvel all too-conveniently left out Peter and Mary Jane off this cover in spite of the fact that they just re-released the Parallel Lives graphic novel. Also, notice that Johnny Storm and Lyja the Laserfist are not on this cover either? So that makes TWO marriages Marvel is desperately trying to get their readers to forget about. :P

Wait a sec? What about Black Bolt and Medusa? Aren't they still, along with Reed Richards and Susan Storm, the only long-term stable marriage existing in Marvel now?

Was this some kind of twisted joke on Marvel's part? As pointed out by everyone here, every marriage depicted there but Sue and Richard's (which though far from perfect is currently stable and happy) didn't work out.

And why aren't Hawkeye and Mockingbird there? Is it because they got legally divorced, since Joe Quesada thinks divorce is worse than retconning reality via a deal with the devil?
