TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3544:

I woke up this morning and decided to share our 10th Anniversary with our blog readers and Facebook friends!

It's been ten years since Tina Lo Sasso and I were married at the Morgan Run Resort in Rancho Santa Fe, California.

Looking over the wedding photo album to see what photo I wanted to use for this blog, I was both remembering the great day and the fact that a few of our wedding guests have sadly passed on since then...

So I was kind of distracted as to my original intent for this blog.

Add to that, that when I went in to get comic book covers of weddings over the years in Marvel Comics... I once again noticed that weddings are few and far between in that Marvel Comics Universe.

The ones that I really remembered, and I go back to the 1965 wedding of Reed Richards & Susan Storm in the Fantastic Four Annual #3, are being pictured here. Of course, the first and the best cover / interior pages issue in my mind was that issue by Stan & Jack, which is why it is directly underneath the photo of Tina & myself.  Yeah, weddings weren't considered so 'hot' as to portray on the front cover... but the wedding crashers were something else, LOL!

I'm also adding the one where Namor the Sub-Mariner was married to Lady Dorma (actually Llyra in disguise!), as he is Tina's favorite Marvel Comics character!

Other weddings over the years (in the Marvel Comics Universe only) included:

■ Reed Richards and Susan Storm (1965, October)
■ Henry Pym and Janet van Dyne (1969, January)

■ Namor McKenzie and Dorma (actually Llyra) (1971, April)
■ Pietro Maximoff and Crystalia Amaquelin (1974, September)
■ Jacques Duquesne and Mantis (1975, June)
■ Vision and Wanda Maximoff (1975, June)
■ Edward Leeds and Elizabeth Brant (1976, May)

■ Scott Summers and Madelyne Pryor (1983, November)
■ J. Jonah Jameson Jr. and Marla Madison (1984, December)
■ Robert Bruce Banner and Elizabeth Ross (1986, May)
■ Namor McKenzie and Marrina Smallwood (1986, November)
■ Jonathan Lowell Spencer Storm and Lyja (1987, March)
■ Peter Benjamin Parker and Mary Jane Watson (1987, October)

■ Sean Cassidy and Maeve Rourke (1994, February) (Only in flashback)
■ Scott Summers and Jean Grey (1994, March)
■ Richard Milhouse Jones and Marlo Chandler (1994, June)
■ Carl Creel and Mary MacPherran (1996, April)
■ James Howlett and Ophelia Sarkissian (1998, July)
■ Brian Braddock and Meggan Puceanu (1998, October)

■ Robert Reynolds and Lindy Lee (2000, October)
■ Luke Cage and Jessica Jones (2006, June)
■ John Jameson and Jennifer Walters (2006, August)
■ T'Challa and Ororo Munroe (2006, September)
■ Gabriel Summers and Cal´syee Neramani (2007, June)
■ Crystalia Amaquelin and Ronan (2009, May)
■ J. Jonah Jameson Sr. and May Reily (2009, September)

I stopped reading most of the Marvel Comics titles after the company started doing their reboots in issue numberings.  So most of the 2000s weddings don't hold any nostalgic memories for me, as I haven't read them...

However, the 1960s and 1970s weddings sure do to this day!

The wedding of Reed & Sue was the first major wedding that turned out to be 'real', not an 'Imaginary Story', like over at the DC Comics Universe... Which is why I was a 'True Believer', a 'Marvelmaniac' during my early comics collecting days!

Viewing the wedding comic book covers of the ones in the 2000s, which are not shown here, I see that more of the wedding ceremony scenes are shown on the covers, so that in itself makes these individual issues more memorable for others that would have read them.

Looking back at our own ten years together, I find myself pleased to have found Tina and enjoy our decade of married life with one another.

Yes, she is a 'trooper' to attend so many comic cons & pop culture cons with me, but she did see my 10' x 10' mini-warehouse storage unit full of them before she married me, LOL!

Tina Marie... Thank YOU for your love, your understanding, your friendship, and your patience with me these past ten years.  I love YOU...  Happy 10th Anniversary! 

...And I am looking forward to our Anniversary Dinner at our Special Restaurant later this evening!
