In the past month there have been two comic book weddings that were touted a little bit. One moreso than the other. In X-Men Gold #30, We had the wedding of Colossus and Kitty Pryde. In Batman #50, we had the wedding of Batman and Catwoman. I'm going to compare the two, as they are very similar tales. In doing so, there will be spoilers.
Disney and 21st Century Fox has reached a deal that will bring the X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool to the Marvel cinematic universe. This deal will cost Disney 52.4 Billion in stock options.

Occasionally, I just trip across a cover while browsing the Internet, and I remember it vaguely from my childhood. Magik, the Storm and Illyana Rasputin mini-series from 1984, fills in the space between panels of Uncanny X-Men #160. In that issue, the X-Men, and Colossus's little sister Illyana are transported to the other-dimensional domain of Belasco, a one-armed sorcerer that had previously faced off against Ka-Zar and Shanna, the She-Devil. Near the end, as the X-Men are escaping, Belasco takes Illyana from their grasp. For a brief second, Kitty Pryde loses her grip on Illyana, but regains it, only to pull her through after she's been in Belasco's realm for several years. Later on, Illyana would exhibit mutant abilities to travel through space and time using "discs" similar to those that randomly appeared in Belasco's realm. She also began using magical abilities and summoning a "soul-sword" that went from looking like a lightsaber to a traditional, albeit glowing sword. This series explained what happened in that span of time.

This week saw the release of Uncanny X-Men #600, which had among other things, the current Iceman coming out of the closet when talking to his younger counterpart. Given that this wraps up one of the stories that Brian Michael Bendis got started, first revealing that the younger Bobby Drake was gay, which seemed to contradict years of established continuity. This week saw that the established continuity was just years of Bobby Drake choosing not to acknowledge that part of himself, since being a mutant was hard enough as it was for a young Bobby Drake.
