Strong Guy Watch: Wedding Bells

Strong Guy keeps getting invited to X-Men weddings. This is a minor update to my Strong Guy Watch because I saw that he gets a pretty prominent place on X-Men Gold #30, the big issue that will feature the wedding of Colossus and Kitty Pryde. How lucky for him that he gets to be a random background X-Man at such an auspicious occasion!

Superhero costumes are apparently proper wedding attire

I’m glad that someone at Marvel remembered how great a visual Strong Guy is in crowd scenes.

I want somebody to write a day-in-the-life of Strong Guy short story at Marvel. What does this guy get up to? He’s not a member of any of the active X-Men squads, yet he’s always in team shots these days. Is he a teacher at the new school? Does he have a separate life and just gets called in for big X-Men events? It’s fascinating!

This is actually Strong Guy’s second X-Men wedding. He was invited to Scott and Jean’s wedding back in the 1990s, too!

Sometimes tuxes and suits work just fine

Like I said, he keeps getting invited to X-Men weddings. I think it’s neat.

Though he didn’t get invited to Northstar’s wedding. Maybe he wasn’t a very prominent character back then.

  1. Heh, cool post! I just reviewed the art for Uncanny X-Men #425, the one with Lorna and Alex’s ill-fated wedding. I thought surely Guido was there, though I don’t know what he was up to at that time. Unfortunately, the issue only gives us a good view of the bride’s side, and I don’t see him. The artist didn’t seem to try very hard to depict who was there, though. Lots of generic-looking faces, and all the bodies are around the same size.

  2. Love this post. The enormous size, the Lennon glasses, his overall bearing…Strong Guy is fun to see. Thanks for letting me know about this appearance. Now I have to pick up the comic!
