For fans of the Marvel Uni­verse, what could be more ro­man­tic than a Spi­der-Man wedding on Valen­tine's Day?

Tulsa Pop Kids, a char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tion that seeks to boost lit­er­acy through pop cul­ture, is stag­ing a Thurs­day, Feb. 14, fundraiser that will fea­ture a mock Spi­derMan and Mary Jane Wat­son wedding.

Spon­sored by J. David Jewelry, the event will in­clude a wedding cer­e­mony fol­lowed by a din­ner re­cep­tion catered by An­dolini's and Un­cle John's Ca­ter­ing. The menu will in­clude pizza, pasta and salad with non­al­co­holic drinks and a wedding cake.

Wedding guests can get a photo taken with the happy cou­ple and/or the wedding party. Limit­ededi­tion wedding T-shirts will be avail­able. The event is sched­uled from 7-9 p.m. at Cen­ter Cen­tral at Cen­ten­nial Park, 1028 E. Sixth St. Tick­ets can be pur­chased at pur­chase.growtix.com/ eh/Tul­sa_Pop_Kids_ Events_2019/24271

VIP tick­ets ($60) in­clude the cer­e­mony, re­served seat­ing, din­ner re­cep­tion, cake, T-shirt and photo op. Sin­gle gen­eral ad­mis­sion tick­ets ($40) in­clude the cer­e­mony, din­ner re­cep­tion and cake. Cou­ple's gen­eral ad­mis­sion tick­ets are $75 with the same perks as the sin­gle ticket.

Photo ops are $10 with the cou­ple and $15 with the wedding party. Wedding T-shirts are $15. All pro­ceeds go to Tulsa Pop Kids.

In the comic book realm, Spi­der-Man and Mary Jane were mar­ried in Amaz­ing Spi­der-Man An­nual No. 21, pub­lished in 1987. The wedding was un­done, as if it had never ex­isted, in 2007, when Marvel de­cided Spi­derMan needed to re­turn to his sin­gle roots.
