'I think it's because it's the gay marriage issue and because it's a white mutant with an African-American man. Something you don't see very often in the comics.' Chris Neary
He is right about the 'gay thing' in comics, Apollo & Midnighter, Batwoman, Sarah Rainmaker, Catman, Lucy in the Sky (The Runaways)
