Super Mates Episode 24: Super Hero Weddings, Part I

Chris and Cindy celebrate the first anniversary of Super Mates, and Valentine’s Day with a look at famous Super Hero weddings! Hear them discuss the legendary nuptials of some of the world’s greatest super heroes!

First off, it’s the wedding of Aquaman and Mera in Aquaman (vol. 1) #18! Aquaman becomes the king of Atlantis, but he must choose a queen! Despite his love for Mera, he must marry an Atlantean! Will the two love birds work it out, or will Arthur feel the fury of a Sea Queen scorned?!?

It’s wall to wall action in Fantastic Four (vol. 1) Annual #3, 1965! Dr. Doom sets out to disrupt the happy day of Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Girl! He sends an army of villains to the Baxter Building, but luckily the entire Marvel Universe of heroes shows up to stop them! Oh, and there is a wedding at the end. Lee and Kirby at their whackiest!

Then it’s a much quieter event in Tales of the Teen Titans #50. You are invited to the wedding of Donna (Wonder Girl) Troy and Terry Long. Marv Wolfman and George Perez present a wedding with no flights, no tights but plenty of nice character moments.

Cindy’s guest-spot on Disney, Indiana is now available!

Be sure to let us know what you think! Let your voice be heard! We’d love to read it aloud in an upcoming episode. Drop us a line in our comments section, or email us at If you're listening on iTunes, please consider leaving a review of our show! We’re also on Facebook!

Chris (aka Earth 2 Chris) co-hosts the Power Records Podcast with the esteemed Rob Kelly over at the Fire and Water Podcast feed! 

Next time, we continue the celebration with the wedding of Peter (Spider-Man_ Parker and Mary Jane Watson, AND the weddings of Clark (Superman) Kent and Lois Lane. And yes we said weddings!


  1. FINALLY this show's anti-Aquaman bias comes to an end! Re: when exactly Aquaman was considered the defacto King of Atlantis, that's a great question--it is never addressed in the solo Aquaman comic, so I need to go dig out my 70s Adventure Comics and see if it is covered there. I had completely forgotten the whole "we elected you King" angle from AQUAMAN #18.

    We would love to have Cindy on THE FIRE AND WATER PODCAST again, but her potty mouth would mean we'd have to mark the show with an Explicit tag.

    Even as a teen, I loved TEEN TITANS #50 because it was so unusual at the time--no fights, no tights (mostly)--just a character issue. I loved all the in-jokes and character bits, to me that issue remains a highlight of the series, and a prime example of what Wolfman and Perez brought to the series, and superhero comics in general.

    Great episode!

  2. Hey now, we started off talking about Aquaman and Mera, remember?

    Yeah the "elected king" bit really surprised me. Let us know what you find out!

    Re: Cindy on F&W with explicit tag: Because you and Shag NEVER curse or use profanity! (sarcasm)

    Agree, agree, and re-agree on Titans #50. It is a highlight in one of comics' greatest runs, bar none!

    Thanks Rob!
