Wonder Woman Officiates Gay Wedding

“Clark, my country is all women. To us, it’s not ‘gay’ marriage. It’s just marriage.” Gay Star News has the details:

Wonder Woman presides over the marriage of two women in a new comic out on 20 August. In latest issue of the Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman, Chapter 48, the superhero is sent on a UN mission to Russian occupied Crimea with Superman. After averting a war, Wonder Woman ends the day by officiating the wedding of a lesbian she met while volunteering in New Orleans after hurricane Katrina. Superman’s alter ego Clark Kent asks in surprise: “You officiate weddings? Is no detail too small for Wonder Woman?” “I’m licensed in every state and country that would allow me. I don’t do it often,” she replies. When Kent says he didn’t know she was a proponent of gay marriage, she gives the perfect response: “Clark, my country is all women. To us, it’s not ‘gay’ marriage. It’s just marriage.”

    Somebody tweet fischer about this! I’d love to hear his take on it.

    • Snarkaholic

      He’s too busy obsessing about mens’ butts’ interiors to waste a thought on what girls get up to.

  • pablo

    I heard that before she’ll perform your marriage she puts the magic lasso on you and your spouse to be gets to ask 10 questions.

    • madscntst

      Yeah…maybe a courthouse marriage for us then…

  • bkmn

    Nothing like waking up to the sound of fundie heads exploding.

  • Reality.Bites

    What a dickwad thing for Kent to say.

    P.S. I’d be more excited if it was Lynda Carter.

      Changes with the author. Once Superman wondered what the big deal with the lesbian police chief was considering no one had a problem with him and Lois which is technically bestiality with him being a different species and all.

      • Reality.Bites

        Yeah, of course it’s really the author’s fault. From what is excerpted here, it sounds like a ham-fisted way to get WW’s views out there. I’d rather it have come from a more secondary character there – Clark isn’t that stupid.

        P.S. If only Capt. Kirk had realized that, there’d be a lot fewer half-alien toupee wearers roaming the galaxy!

  • Snarkaholic

    I’ve met Ms. Carter…she’s even more breathtakingly-beautiful in person.

    • madscntst

      Lucky

    • Eebadee-eebadee-thatsallfolks

      I think Lynda Carter lives in Palm Springs. She’s got a star there on their walk of fame.

      • Octavio

        She lives in Potomac, Maryland. She’s a local hero, having discovered a dead “floater” in the river a few years ago. She stuck by the dead body until the police showed up. One of the hazards of being a rower. 🙂

        • Bj Lincoln

          I live on a peninsula in Middle River MD and we tend to get floaters a lot. 3 in the last 6 months.

          • Octavio

            But do you call the police and stick next to the corpses like a bird dog until they come pick it up? 🙂

          • Reality.Bites

            I’m hoping the BJ doesn’t mean that she and her wife have personally discovered three floaters in the last six months. Because that would mean that hundreds are being discovered by other people!

    • I do believe so.

    • Snarkaholic

      I think so. I read somewhere that fake ones tend to stand straight out (almost parallel to the floor), while real ones tend to slope downward a bit.

    • Christopher

      Those are definitely au naturale!

      • JCF

        Mmmmm…. 😉

    • David Walker

      Enjoy the view tonight at 8 EDT on ME TV, one of the retro channels.

      • I watch that now! I love her 🙂

        • David Walker

          I’m more a Lyle Waggoner kind of guy.

          There’s an amazing resemblance between Lynda Carter and Emily Deschanel, Temperance Brennan in “Bones.” There’s a Hallowe’en episode or costume party episode in which Temperance dresses up as Wonder Woman, and the resemblance is startling.

          • MarkOH

            So was I !

          • MarkOH

            Yum

          • David Walker

            I KNEW Carol Burnett saw something in him.

          • Bj Lincoln

            Emily looked awesome as Wonder Woman. I’m a big “Bones” fan. Cam as Cat Woman was no slouch.

          • David Walker

            Yes, indeed.

  • MDB

    I want to see her officiate at Clark Kent and cub (reporter) Jimmy Olsen’s wedding .

    • I was just watching an old B&W episode where Louis and Jimmy went undercover as Egyptian royalty to foil a jewel stealing plot. Just as I was thinking, I would love to see him naked, he shows up in the scene wearing a slave leather harness and leather kilt. Nipples and chest hair bared. I don’t know how that got past the censors back in the 50s/60s

      • Reality.Bites

        Male chests were always OK. And as the show was syndicated, there was no network censor involved anyway.

        But mainly I’m replying to mention, in case anyone didn’t know, that Jack Larson, who played Jimmy, was the partner of director James Bridges from 1958 till Bridges’ death in 1993. Before Bridges he was involved with Montgomery Clift.

        • Christopher

          Great Caesar’s Ghost!

          That is some great info. Thanks!

          I’ve always had a thing for him, and he’s always pinged my gaydar.

    • Reality.Bites

      That would be awkward. Jimmy is Supergirl’s love interest in the upcoming CBS Supergirl series. Not to mention he’s been a photographer for decades now. And clearly no longer a cub.

        Gracious!

        Um . . . what was I going to say?

        Oh!

        Jimmy will just have to explain to Supergirl that he only wants to be friends.

        Problem solved!

        • honey, she’s supergirl. how do you think she got that name?

          hint: she’s got a Kryptonian throat, and tongue. and those special muscles boys don’t have. 😉

          • Reality.Bites

            Mr Fantastic can just bend and stretch his arm to match anything she’s got!

          • billbear1961

            :O

      • bambinoitaliano

        Certainly a cup runneth over. Oh sorry, you mean cub.

      • bambinoitaliano

        In the comic universe, there’s always the parallel world. I’m sure the writer can insert any character into Clark Kent’s world unless Superman is only a top 🙂

        • Reality.Bites

          Superman’s a bottom. If he ever shot his load in a woman he’d blow the top of her head off.

          • bambinoitaliano

            So he needs a titanium bottom. Quick Silver perhaps.

          • Todd20036

            talk about snuff porn!

      • Webslinger
        • Todd20036

          sorry, no. Maybe later

  • Kruhn

    Wonder Woman officiating a gay wedding? Uh duh! She’s been a gay icon since forever. The lasso of truth will at least cut back on then l the couple follow the Duggar way.

    • RoFaWh

      I used to read Wonder Woman comics back in the 1950s, before I’d ever figured out I was gay.

      They had remarkably poor drawing in those days.

  • billbear1961
  • BobSF_94117

    Wonder Woman comes from an all-female planet?

    • Reality.Bites

      She’s an Amazon, from Earth.

    • lymis

      It’s an all female island, hidden from the world of men by the Greek Gods for their protection. No man may set foot on it.

      Or, as she puts it, “All I’ll say is.. We don’t call it Paradise Island for nothing.”

      http://ic.pics.livejournal.com/mosellegreen/628917/466871/466871_original.png

      • BobSF_94117

        I assume it’s not all Lesbos-y and that they travel to other places to snag men???

        • lymis

          You’re free to assume that. Doesn’t seem borne out by the comics. No men. Immortal women. Do the math.

        • Snarkaholic

          I saw a rerun of the show, and in one scene that took place on the island, the few men there were kept in cages.

    In latest issue of the Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman, Chapter
    48, the superhero is sent on a UN mission to Russian occupied Crimea
    with Superman.

    Do the crazy homophobic Russkies try to arrest Wonder Woman for “promoting homosexuality”? It would be nice to see her kick their hateful, arrogant asses.

    • RoFaWh

      There’s no guarantee that a same-sex couple is homosexual.

      Would saying that make a fundie swallow his morning coffee the wrong way?

      • JT

        So what? Presiding over a same sex marriage, which is not legal in Russia, would no doubt be taken as “promoting homosexuality”.

        • Reality.Bites

          But that happened in New York, at the end of the story.

          • JT

            So they didn’t include that in the story. They should have. It does say above that she’s officiated at weddings before and that in her home country same sex marriages are the only ones. It would have been nice for them to weave this into the story, since it was about the Russians anyway. They wouldn’t even have had to rewrite the ending.

  • Zing!

  • Sam_Handwich

    Speaking of weddings..

    Michigan plaintiffs April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse are getting married today!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnOPDEhXFu0

    • Congrats ladies! Enjoy all the benefits that hard won fight bestows. I hope the rest of their lives isnt filled with so much angst and drama.

    • Gustav2

      YAY!

    • zhera

      FINALLY! These two ladies are amazing and I wish hem all the best for ever and ever.

  • Octavio

    And Diana Prince’s native country? Themyscira, the isolated homeland of Amazonians where Steve Trevor is the only male — and American — to have visited. Good for Wonder Woman.

  • JT

    Christofascists vow to hold their breath until those comics are removed from the shelves!

      Really, this is the best possible use of plastic bags considering we have a monumental problem with plastics in our oceans.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Pacific_garbage_patch

      I just watched a fantastic documentary on the subject available for streaming on Netflix.

      http://plasticparadisemovie.com/

      This movie has made us switch from plastic grocery bags to paper lunch bags for our cat litter. We already used reusable shopping bags, but somehow the plastic bags are amazingly adept at reproducing. We’re now doing what we can to limit the use of plastics in our household, but to be frank, it’s impossible to be free from plastics in this world, it’s in EVERYTHING.

      Edited to add: I know that this is way off topic, but it’s really a problem for our world.

      Oh, and BTW, Go Wonder Woman!!!

      • RoFaWh

        One of the grocery stores I go to regularly has a bin by the front door for superannuated plastic bags. I hang one from the front door knob inside the house and stuff new arrivals into it until it’s full, then off to Fairway Food and its bin.

        • Christopher

          That’s brilliant!

          The problem with those bags is that not many places even take them for recycle.

  • Adam Schmidt

    Except as you (Joe) note at the end… it’s not a gay wedding, it’s just a wedding. That was the best part.

    All our hopes are pinned upon you,

  • KnownDonorDad

    Straight comic book geeks are natural allies of the LGBT community; it’s hard to be judgmental and prejudiced when you’re in a perennial outsider group.

    • Reality.Bites

      Male hetero Trek fans seem to manage it quite well

  • GanymedeRenard

    “Clark, my country is all women. To us, it’s not ‘gay’ marriage. It’s just marriage.” Wait… Did Wonder Woman just come out as a Lesbian, or am I reading too much into this?

    • RoFaWh

      She just said that all the Amazons are lesbian.

      • um, duh.

      • GanymedeRenard

        And WW is an Amazon.. Therefore…

      • Reality.Bites

        No, she said that all their marriages are lesbian. Wonder Woman’s heterosexuality is long established and hasn’t been retconned away.

        Batwoman and Earth 2’s Green Lantern are gay.

        • GanymedeRenard

          Intriguing… So all Amazonian marriages are necessarily lesbian, and yet not all Amazons are lesbians? I’m not a comic geek, and I don’t keep up with their storylines and stuff, but this concept seems a bit odd to me. Perhaps WW is secretly bi?

          • Eric in Oakland

            My understanding is that most of them, including Diana, are bisexual.

          • Reality.Bites

            Well look at a prison in our world. All the people are of the same sex, so any relationship is a same-sex relationship, but that doesn’t mean everyone there is gay.

          • GanymedeRenard

            But by relationship you mean sexual intercourse?

  • Webslinger
  • Bj Lincoln

    Right on! Thank you Sensation Comics! Wonder Women has always been a hero. Love the line, “Clark, my country is all women. To us, it’s not ‘gay’ marriage. It’s just marriage.”!

  • Justin

    Awesome!

  • And it is just marriage, there are marriages with heterosexual couples and marriages with same sex couples and they are both marriage. This is why I always preferred to say that I was fighting for marriage for same sex couples as opposed to saying that I was fighting for gay marriage.

  • Terry Caufleld

    Yet another reason I love Wonder Woman and “why” she is the BEST superhero.

  • Stev84

    She was gay on “Two and Half Men”. Well Lynda Carter was…or maybe just Jenny-sexual.

  • Gerry Fisher

    BOOM!

  • His next line was “I’m asking for a friend. He likes photographers…”

  • Joseph Miceli

    Oh my God!!!!! Someone call “One Million Moms” before the psyche’s of our precious children are irreversibly harmed by this indoctrination into the gay lifestyle! Just look at her, flaunting her sexuality while fighting crime in high healed boots and a bikini! Boycott!!!!!
