A gay Astonishing X-Men wedding and an upcoming coming-out-gay DC Comics storyline has caught the attention of One Million Moms, the same group which called on JCPenney to fire Ellen DeGeneres as their spokesperson because she is openly gay.

In Astonishing X-Men #50 Northstar proposes marriage to this boyfriend Kyle and will marry in the following issue, to be released June 20. DC Comics has said a coming out gay storyline will feature a prominent character.

“Children desire to be just like superheroes,” the group wrote at its website. “Children mimic superhero actions and even dress up in costumes to resemble these characters as much as possible. Can you imagine little boys saying, 'I want a boyfriend or husband like X-Men?'”

“This is ridiculous! Why do adult gay men need comic superheroes as role models? They don't but do want to indoctrinate impressionable young minds by placing these gay characters on pedestals in a positive light. These companies are brainwashing them into thinking that a gay lifestyle choice is normal and desirable. As Christians, we know that homosexuality is a sin (Romans 1:26-27).”

“These companies are promoting a premature discussion on sexual orientation,” the group added in urging members to protest the companies.
