It will be unimaginable in the superhero world, but in real life, the union of two unlikely superheroes has happened.
The wedding venue was Awesome Con, the annual Washington comic book and pop-culture convention, last week. The wedding of Megan Mattingly and Adam Merica, who were dressed as Wonder Woman and Deadpool respectively, was attended by more than 100 other comic characters.
The bride who is an investment banker and also works as a fantasy writer by night met the groom Adam at the Restaurant Eve in 2014 while he was tending the bar. It was their mutual love for cosplay (costume play) that brought them close to each other.
When it came to wedding theme they hadn't need to think twice. Adam decided to dress up as the character Deadpool as he has been a big fan of the character since he was a child and Megan chose Wonder Woman outfit for the character's strong personality.
The wedding guests also turned up in costumes which included Superman, Supergirl, Wolverine, Pocahontas, Batgirl, Antman Dr Who, Mary Poppins, Little Mermaid, Quicksilver and more.
The bride's bouquet was also inspired by the theme - it was made from old comic books.
