It's the ultimate queer comic universe cross-over - a proposal between Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman.

Longtime Ohio couple Deanna Mascia and Ashley Vansickle might have a lot in common, but perhaps nothing more-so than their shared love for comic books. Which is precisely why Vansickle, 26, thought Michigan's Motor City Comic Con would be the perfect opportunity for the couple to take their commitment to the next level.

Spending months in planning, Vansickle, who dressed up as Captain Marvel for the big day, arranged a special photo shoot with photographer Susan Onysko, under the guise of a comic con memento for her and Mascia, 25, who dressed up as Wonder Woman.

Then, during the photo shoot, Captain Marvel dropped to one knee.

Of course, Wonder Woman said, "I do".

“Our whole relationship and our lives are based around comic books and superheroes,” Vansickle told the Detroit Free Press.

“She’s actually the first girl, the first anybody I told about my interest in comics,” Mascia added.

“She gave me the courage to be myself.”

Now, when it comes to on-screen representation, this is one superhero story-line we can really get behind.
