From the moment Emma Frost, also known as the White Queen, stepped into the Marvel Universe, her connection with Iron Man sparked an ongoing tension that seemed to defy resolution. This tension would eventually lead to a monumental event—the wedding of Tony Stark and Emma Frost, uniting these two formidable individuals in a bond that had once been fraught with unease.
The two powerful heroes often clashed over their differing approaches to superhuman conflict. They even battled over who was to blame for the tragedies that unfolded during the AVENGERS VS X-MEN crossover event.
Upcoming Plot Line of the Wedding of Tony Stark and Emma Frost
However, time passed, and things have changed. Now, it looks as though these two opposites are about to become the most unlikely of power couples. As revealed on the upcoming connecting covers for X-MEN (2021) #26 and INVINCIBLE IRON MAN (2022) #10, the wedding of Emma Frost and Tony Stark will take place this September!
The issue of X-Men will show how Frost’s mutant family reacts to this surprise news, while Invincible Iron Man will feature the actual ceremony.
Both problems are written by Gerry Duggan, with art by Stefano Caselli (X-Men #26) and Juan Frigeri (INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #10) and stunning covers by Lucas Werneck.
The couple is seen on the upcoming covers in Hellfire formal attire, suggesting that their wedding will have severe implications for the future of mutant-kind and the Iron Man/Emma romance. But what exactly is going on here?
These characters have some of the most enormous egos in the Marvel Universe, and it seems like a marriage between them would be one of the most disastrous moves ever.
But, if you consider the current situation in both Stark’s world and Krakoa, it may start to make more sense.
The island of Krakoa is a utopia for mutant kind, but it’s constantly under attack from anti-mutant forces, including the new Kingpin of Crime, Wilson Fisk. Additionally, the anti-heroes of Orchis have seized control of Stark Industries and are using his technology to create a new generation of superhuman Sentinels that hunt down mutants.
Considering the magnitude of the wedding of Tony Stark and Emma Frost, it becomes apparent that this union might serve as a pivotal element in the White Queen’s overarching strategy to safeguard the future of mutants.
Plus, this might be a significant set-up for that storyline with Jim Starlin’s cosmic go-to Thanos on the horizon. Whatever the true motive behind this union, you can be sure that it’s one that fans won’t forget!
