One of the biggest events to effect Marvel’s mutants doesn’t involve a world-shattering invasion, the betrayal of a trusted friend or a dystopian future.

The next big event to happen in the X-Men universe is the wedding of Katherine Anne “Kitty” Pryde and Piotr “Peter” Rasputin. Their relationship has been a part of the X-Men universe since the characters were introduced and one of the most popular writers of and creator of Kitty Pryde Chris Claremont is returning to contribute a new story to X-Men Wedding Special #1.

“X-Men weddings are always a big deal, if only because they’re so rare,” Thompson said in a Marvel press release. “I think you probably have to go all the way back to X-Men #30 in 1994 — the wedding of Jean Grey and Cyclops — to get a wedding as potentially big as the wedding of Kitty Pryde and Colossus: two X-Men who’ve been around (and on again/off again) for literal decades.”

The X-Men Wedding Special will be available digitally and in comic book stores May 16.
