X-Men/Guardians of the Galaxy: Star-Lord Proposes to a Space-Goddesss

Marvel Comics just ended "Black Vortex," a cosmic storyline featuring members of the Guardians of the Galaxy and the X-Men, as well as Nova. It featured a battle between the forces of good and evil over a celestial object called the Black Vortex, which offered mortals the gift -- and curse -- of godhood. Several of our heroes accepted the gift, though most gave back their gift at the end of the story -- except for Guardian's Gamora and X-Men's Angel. Oh, and Kitty Pryde, whose godhood transformation seemed to be the most cosmic.

She basically has the ability to spread out and become one with the cosmos. Which is convenient if you're teaching young mutants on Earth while simultaneously dating an international freedom fighter.

Anyway, "Black Vortex" ended with the successful defeat of the bad guys. Which isn't much of a spoiler. I mean, it would be more of a shocker if the bad guys won the day.

But the other big development is that Peter Quill of the Guardians proposed to Kosmic Kitty of the X-Men following this big battle:


Which means that we will soon see the wedding between a Star-Lord and a Space-God within the pages of Marvel Comics. Assuming they don't break up or die.
