Philadelphia - Wedding bells will ring this summer for Marvel Comics' first openly gay hero, super speedster Northstar.

The publisher said on Tuesday that Canadian character Jean-Paul Beaubier will marry his beau, Kyle Jinadu, in the pages of "Astonishing X-Men" No 51 that's due out 20 June.

Northstar revealed he was gay in the pages of "Alpha Flight" No 106 in 1992. He was one of Marvel's first characters to do so.

Since then, numerous comic book heroes and villains have been identified as gay, lesbian or transgender.

Marjorie Liu is writing the series. She says the decision to have the pair marry was fitting, noting that the relationship between Kyle and Northstar has grown in recent years.
