Wonder Woman Officiates Same-Sex Wedding in "Sensation Comics"

Wonder Woman -- one of the world's most recognizable and popular superheroes -- breaks boundaries in the DC Universe by becoming the first-ever superhero in DC Comics history to officiate a same-sex marriage.

Oh yeah, she also single-handedly and non-violently stops the annexation of Crimea Unnamed Small Eastern European Country by Russia Unnamed Massive Cold Country. So, you know, no big.

Written and illustrated by Jason Badower, "Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman" Chapter 48 features the Amazon Princess shooing Superman away while she deals with "General" and his army of tanks and weapons as they attempt to invade Crim, er, Unnamed Eastern European Country.

Following that, Wonder Woman proceeds to officiate the wedding of a couple she met while helping with relief efforts following Hurricane Katrina. Of course, in today's context it's a huge deal to have a superhero with as much recognition as Wonder Woman officiating a same-sex marriage, but as the hero herself says to Superman in the story: "Clark, my country is all women. To us, it's not 'gay' marriage. It's just marriage." Words we should all live by.

"I saw this Wonder Woman story as an incredible opportunity to have one of the most recognizable, iconic characters in the world to be among the first to step forward and officially endorse this new law," Badower told The Huffington Post. "But I thought, let's not just have Wonder Woman embrace this new law, let's have her celebrate it."

Marking Badower's first DC Comics work, "Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Wonder" Chapter 48 releases digitally August 20.
