By this point I would like to think that everyone knows who is going to be getting married. I don’t know if Marvel is doing this because of how well the Archie comic did due to the free advertising of every site talking about it, or if Marvel really wants to point out that they support gay marriage. Either way, its gonna happen. I’m sure there will be more people pissed that it is being sold at Toys R Us, but I’m gonna be honest, if people really think that gay marriage is the worst thing children should be reading in comics, they should probably read them again. Comics are so mature these days, even the teen ones are borderline worse than most PG 13 movies. Does that bother me? Not in the least I love how awesome comics have become, but I love how the massive amount of blood and violence is not a problem, let alone all the swearing, but gay marriage is what people are fussing about? Give me a break. I say ring the damn wedding bells and get this party started.
