Title: Mr. & Mrs. X #1 (Spoilers)
Post by: Berry on July 25, 2018, 03:58:13 AM
Jubilee is leading the charge for something old, new, borrowed & blue.  Psylocke gives Rogue the earrings that are antiques for old, Jean uses TK to pick the bouquet for new, Kitty has Rogue borrow the veil and for blue... Mystique shows up.  She’s been there the whole time posing as Agent Brand. 


Bla bla bla, they talk, they hug. 


Rogue walks down the isle, he zero ins on the collar.  He tells her that he heard Mystique is there and asks what horrible awful terrible things is she going to do. 


Then it cuts to after the ceremony, Bishop asks Gambit if he’s going to steal the honeymoon too (yasss!  #TopTierThief)  But Gambit is like “god no, I know how to plan a honeymoon”.  Jubilee seems horrified that he’s dragging Rogue to New Orleans for the honeymoon, and Gambit can’t believe none of them have come around to understand he’s a total romantic at heart.  Meanwhile Rogue is talking to Beast about the collar asking if it could be made smaller and she points out wearing the thing gives her a migraine (which is new to me, has there always been side effects to the collars or is KT just establishing another reason she’s avoid the collars?)


Gambit & Rogue honeymoon.  There’s a lot of implied sex, bed sheets covering all the right parts to keep the comic within code.  Rogue laments why come out to space if all they’re gonna do is hang out in bed.  They then have more sex.  There’s a naked tickle fight (Gambit wins).  Kitty calls, Gambit gets roped into a mission, so in frustration he drops the bedsheet and Kitty pretends to be upset about it. 


They go find what’s-her-name and the package, there’s a fight scene.  Rogue ends up touching another character whose name escapes me and phases through the ship.  Gambit flips his s*** because she has no gear to allow her to breathe outside the ship.  She suddenly blinks away in a burst of light.  She comes to calling out to Gambit, turns out she’s with Deadpool who saved her and opened the package - it’s a Phoenix Egg (whatever that actually does, I still have no idea).



It’s nice to see Gambit & Rogue functioning like a team.  Yes they raze each other, but she does defend Gambit to Bobby, Kurt & Mystique at different points through the issue.   All in all, thought it was a solid start.  Yes, the wedding stuff part focuses more of Rogue than Gambit but it’s not jarring. Gambit got his honeymoon, he’s happy y’all.

When the book was announced and they mentioned about that special package I knew it at that very moment that it was the Phoenix egg. .
I loved the first issue very much and it is a great start. Oscar's art was also good but all the women he draws look the same.
The book was really fun and can't wait for the next issue. Deadpool involvement will make things very interesting.

It was a fun issue and in isolation a good start to the series for the reasons mentioned above.


My concern in all of this still remains though. Rogue getting more focus made sense and Rogue ending up with Deadpool made sense.  But therein lies the problem.  A writer can always write good and logical reasons for a character getting focus and right now we are moving from a Rogue centric first issue (albeit well done) to a next issue where Rogue will be with Deadpool and Gambit will be with a bunch of barely used characters.  I know if I were a writer, which group I would focus on.


It just feels like Gambit has already been relegated to side character in his own book as I expect a lot of Rogue and Deadpool banter until Gambit finds them.  Maybe I will be proven wrong but time will tell.




P.S. 2 small minor points that felt a bit off.  First, I thought it was a bit too contrived that Mystique randomly deciding she was going to attend Kitty and Collosus' wedding and then being super calm and ok about the fact it ended up being Gambit and Rogue. 


Second, I thought Bobby and Nightcrawler's dialogue was off.  They focus should have been the fact they were closer to Rogue than Gambit as a means to explain why they were on her team so to speak.  Instead the dialogue made it seem like they had issues with Gambit which is just odd.  They both have been on teams with him with Bobby and Gambit most recently during Liu's AXM and Kurt currently with X-men Red and while they aren't best buds, I just don't see them saying what they did about Gambit.  Perhaps Bobby I can understand a bit if you ignore Liu and go back decades but certainly not Kurt.

Loved it.
Issue was really good and so much fun.
Finally Remy at home and don't feel as loner. It felt like old X family. All cameos were really good.

Art was good. The only problem is women faces that all are the same.
Also it annoyed me that Guard after fight had no skratches at all. Like punches and explosions did nothing. Also artist's fault I think.
Sad a little that Jean-Luc and Tante weren't there but book can`t be perfect.


Overall itis a great and beautiful start. Can't wait for more.

I did have a problem with how Oscar draws the female character's faces. The way he drew Mystique made her look super young but still it was a beautiful looking book so I will give him a pass and the honeymoon scene was super hot.

It was dope. No real issues from me outside of ONE. I think Mystique was a bit too restrained, but this probably wasnt issue for her to really air out frustrations. I figured she'd be there, it'd be too hard for her not to. I was hoping for something a bit more and I believe Kelly saw the "shallowness" of her presence as she basically inferred as much, not believing her reason for attending. Perhaps it'll be addressed later like; "What Mystique was really up to...". I'm surprised they let her use so much nakedness throughout this issue and I loved the space setting. I hope there's more to the story as to how Gambit was able to get a ship on loan from Alpha Flight. As far as I'm aware, he doesnt have any real connections via the X-Men to any of them. Perhaps he used his less official channels with the Guild? Who knows, hopefully it's brought up. I also didn't know Alpha Flight had ships capable of light-speed travel, but what exactly do I know about Alpha Flight these days? Not much. I did say I only had one concern, but another isn't big. The art was fine, dont get me wrong. Some of the best out of the X-Men in a long time. But faces' could have been... less round in places? There was a panel where a lot of the characters looked too similar. Other than this (these), it was almost flawless. If Astonishing got a 3.9 out of me, this one gets a 4.5/5. Stroooong start. Got the Ramos variant BTW. Very happy with it.

I felt that Bobby/Kurt panel was odd too but I didn't really cared about it. Maybe because Gambit's team already had everyone who should be there.
Neither of them should be near Gambit but it was strange to hear such things from Kurt. Not so much from Bobby.

Yeah it was just a minor point for me.  Like I said, overall it was a solid issue.  I just won't be able to shake my larger concerns about this until several issues where I can really see if Gambit is getting enough focus overall.


As for the Jet, I assumed Kitty was joking when she said he got it on loan and in fact meant he stole it.

Lol, I would love to see how Gambit stole that jet.
I think next 2 issues should be enough to see if Gambit will have enough focus.
I think #1 was more Rogue focused only because wedding in Gold was Gambit centric. Will see.

I read it and yeah, it was a cute, fun issue. Definitely a must-read for shippers.


A few minor critical points: I thought Mystique was a little...too nice, but Mystique's odd that way in regard to Rogue; one minute she's a concerned mother, the other she's a manipulative mother-from-hell. I, too, didn't quite understand where the mild animosity from Bobby and Kurt towards Gambit came from (but then again, I may not be up-to-date in my comic book reading as some of you are). Again, these are all very minor criticisms that popped up in my head as I was reading it.


I actually really liked the art (*gasp*, right?). I mean, yes, the women had similarly shaped faces, but it wasn't a bad similar, if you know what I mean? I could easily differentiate the different characters. Mystique looked too young, though. Gambit, on the other hand, looked pretty good.


Oh, and when you-know-who showed up at the end? Pretty funny stuff.


All in all, a good issue that answered a lot of those questions many of us had regarding the wedding, and that set up the upcoming story in a solid way. I'm looking forward to the next issue.
Title: Re: Mr. & Mrs. X #1 (Spoilers)
Post by: DonPriceTag on July 25, 2018, 08:06:07 PM
With you on Mystique. But no, Bobby and Gambit never really got along that well. Especially leading up and after Legion Quest/AoA/Road Trip. It was commonly assumed that Bobby had some sort of a crush on Rogue. He'd daydream about her and the such... Of course the retcon turns that into nonsense, thus the animosity he feels shouldn't really be there. I don't know where Kurts beef stems. Those 2 have barely interacted as during the 90s Kurt was mostly on Excalibur and when he did return, Gambit was MIA and then in a different book. By the end of the early 00s Gambit was being pushed to the rear while Kurt and the other movie Characters got the spotlight. So, there's no real reason for the slight.


"Storming the castle..." lol, get it? That was funny.

Post by: Paradox Jast on July 25, 2018, 09:21:31 PM
Well, I said I'd try to do a neutral review for those still on the fence about getting it, but by the time I got home from work and was able to read the issue, it seems as though everyone else has already gotten it.

Ah well. I'll just leave my own thoughts and rating then. Fair disclaimer that I'm a 'lapsed' Romy fan, I still enjoy reading it but I don't go out actively looking for it like I used to years ago. I do still think they have and have had enough chemistry to stick together or play off each other for a while to come. I guess the rest will be up to Marvel editorial.

So... I'll just dive right into this issue then. If I was coming at this as a reader who had no interest in them as a couple but still like them as characters, this first book is a definite pull. There are very few new books where the first one can knock it out of the park at the get-go, but this one does it. Granted, it has some help piggy-backing off Gold #30 for those who read that, so there isn't any wasted story time in the beginning half of the book. It's a nice behind-the-scenes look, as it were.

The second half, beginning with the call... well, we the readers knew something would happen otherwise the entire point of the book is moot. It has its ups and downs, and Gambits anger and Rogues look of disappointment was appropriate actually rather well done. There was also a good explanation that fit for the suppression collar as to why they don't use them often, and a sarcastic line from big blue about why no mutants have 'bothered' to improve upon them.

If I have any qualms about this issue it is towards the very end, near the last 4 pages or so. Looking over it the first time is fine, but upon a second and third look through questions arise.
Gambit and Rogue are asked to do something that is 'important' with little to no information to go on. Seriously. Collect the package. It's 'important'. An 'old friend' let me know about it. Bring it home. Others will be after it. Gambit was correct in his incredulity, considering the 'others' ended up being the Imperial Guard.

We get to see a handcuffed Cerise in a couple panels, but she says nothing. The fight starts almost right away as the Guard tries to commandeer their ship without saying please first. Rogue manages to nab the package and through and eyebrow raising series of unfortunate events, somehow pops into a bed and wakes up next to Deadpool.

Find out all the things that weren't explained this time in the next episode of Dragon Ball Z!.... or something like that.

But yeah, its obvious that the last few pages of the book had to 'hurry up' and get the hook in for the next issue, because there are a lot of question marks being thrown around all over the place. On one hand that's good because it gets people interested. On the other hand that can be bad, because it has a tendency to build early frustration. Sure, some things could have some easy explanations, but we're still gonna have to wait for the next one to find out the answers.

Now, for the 'scores':

Writing: 4.5/5 - good chat and banter for the first half, second half started getting serious but left a lot out as a lure for book 2
Art: 4/5 - the beginning was good, after the halfway point I thought it had a marked improvement. Backgrounds were very wow. Much amaze. Pretty stare.

Pull-o-meter: Tastes great, almost satisfied but the ending still left me hungry. Yep.

What I learned: Mystique is so obviously bipolar. There is medicine for that.
Favorite part: Laura offering to stab Remy to help him focus.
Least favorite part: Illyana's face doing a Yoda impression on the bottom left panel of page 6. Can't unsee.

PANEL TIMER
And because it may or may not become a 'thing' for some people, I present.... dun dunnnn... the PANEL TIMER! This will probably also help those on the fence decide if they want to bother or not, by taking a more direct and mathematical approach to seeing if it is worth their time and money.

If Gambit or Rogue have any part of their body, a speech bubble, or the affect of their powers show up in a panel, it counts towards the total.

Their name spoken in someone else's bubble (even if they share a scene) as a reference or to draw attention does NOT count. Only the characters presence or actions count towards the total.

Total issue panels: 102
Rogue: 72 - 71% of the book
Gambit: 49 - 48% of the book

Not taking anything else into account, yeahhhhh that's a teensy bit cringey. Rogue got a whole extra scene with Illyana and Mystique so that sorta skewed it in her favor. Otherwise they were relatively equal. The next issue will likely have Rogue with Deadpool for a bit while Gambit figures out what's going on with the Imperial Guard until they meet up again.

Not to be a Debbie Downer or nothin', but we can see who gets to pal around (even for a brief stint) with the A-lister while the other gets stuck with the extras. I shall cautiously await the next issue.

Regardless of what's to come, though, this one was definitely a blasty blast for most of it. If folks are okay with this sort of review style, I'll continue it.


EDIT: Spoiler tags keep breaking :(

I think #1 was more Rogue focused only because wedding in Gold was Gambit centric. Will see.

Oh my concern about focus is less about the wedding and more about the fact Rogue and Deadpool ended up together while Gambit ended up with a bunch of characters no one cares about.

So I suspect Gambit will probably spend his time trying to find Rogue which renders his story being largely about her.  While Rogue will likely get some cool interactions with Deadpool.  Then when Gambit finally finds them, I am guessing he will spend some time being a bit jealous.

Of course, that is just pessimistic speculation but I would have preferred Rogue, Gambit, and Deadpool together or frankly Deadpool to not be included at all.  Too early for a guest star like Deadpool to overshadow the stars we haven't even spent proper time with yet and let's be real if Deadpool overshadows anyone, it will be Gambit and not Rogue.

Post by: remydat on July 25, 2018, 09:49:26 PM
The other thing a post on CBR made me remember is Mystique essentially tricked Gambit into sleeping with her by posing as twins and Rogue is aware of it as she was on the team.  Just odd for Rogue to just let that slide.

Post by: Miss Misery on July 25, 2018, 09:58:20 PM
Kneejerk reaction!

I really liked the story and characterizations of our leads, hate the exterior art, don't care for the interior art, either.

Shut up, Bobby. Shut up, Kurt. You don't wanna be on Team Gambit? Well, Team Gambit wouldn't WANT you anyway!

Shut up, Jubilee. New Orleans is a fine honeymoon destination.

And shut up, Hank. Stop getting on Rogue for wanting something other than a bulky, headache-inducing collar.

"Our friends are monsters."--Damn right they are.

That scene with Mystique went way too easily for her not to be up to something. But I am glad that Rogue was suspicious about the whole thing, though it's not the reaction I would've expected from her, given all that's happened. Then again, it's her wedding, so she's letting it slide for the moment.

I loved the bit with him and Storm asking her to stand with him.

BISHOP.

"Dammit!"--:-D

All I got for now.

I really enjoyed the issue. KT kind of picks up right where she left off.


Negatives; The women's faces all looking similar. I can get over it though. Bobby and Kurt talking smack. Honestly, I'm fine with Bobby being a douche because there is established history with them not getting along. But the stuff from Kurt makes no sense. Don't understand what his problem is. I'm actually fine that Rogue is with Deadpool and Gambit is with the guards. Mostly because I'm not a big Deadpool fan and I think his inclusion in other's stories can sometimes grind things to a hault for "the Deadpool show". Gambit with the guards maybe allows him to shine and show his intelligence and his capability to get things done. I agree that having Deadpool come in in issue 2 when we haven't even spent much time with the leads is annoying.


Loved the line where Gambit says "I am a hopeless romantic at heart, and it's shameful dat none of you realize dis." Seriously, it's like a bunch of the X-Men still don't get him. Good line. I think the R&G mini and now this shows how Gambit and Rogue can be married and still be fun and exciting and not be dull. No other couple comes close to having the fun, charming, and sexy banter that these two have when there is a writer who gets it. The family vibe of the wedding was excellent and I have hope that we will have some bad assery from Gambit in the upcoming issues. I would expect in an ongoing with these two leads that Gambit will have to get some spotlight shown on him. At least for diversity's sake.


Interesting note, I know a few people who are Marvel/X-Men fans and Gambit and Rogue are not really their favorite characters but they plan on picking this issue up just because it's exciting that Gambit and Rogue after all these years are finally married and any characters in Marvel who get officially married is a pretty big deal. One doesn't even buy comics but he wants to pick this up.

I think everyone has done a great review. Paradox Jast, great job. If you wish to do so ... keep going.


Sorry the tags keep breaking, might something else, I find I fix more things that I ever thought because of silly tags I didn't see.

I bought the issue, before I hear gasps and all that. I haven't read it yet. I can't get myself to do at this time. I did get a nice variant and was not raked over the coals for it. TBH, I think I'm in the phase of just give me art.

My shop didn't have any variants, curses! I'll probably go to eBay or maybe go back o KT's shop get an 'autographed'. Since I've barely bought any comics in the past few years, I could splurge.


I liked it. I didn't take bobby/Kurt seriously, they're not so serious characters and probably joking around. This issue got away with a lot of naked, lol, I was kinda surprised.

Good luck on ebay! Hope you get one you want! One of the variants from my shop was $40 and I passed. I was not that impressed with it but I would think others would love it though. It must be in a attach here somewhere. The one I got was the classic one, in their costumes, ring and wearing their old stuff.

I agree. That's ridiculous lol. Hopefully picking up my copy today. I'm glad to hear it's being received so well.

Fun issue liked seeing Bishop interact with Gambit last time was during MC and they were on opposite sides, Bobby's comments made no sense while the were never close back in the 90s and he was closer to Rogue which is all he had to say, CC and Liu both established the two having become good friends, Bobby even helping him out when Remy was blind, it just did seem right there are dozens of characters to choose from and she chose two X-Men that are established as liking Remy , Kurt and Remy play ping pong together, but its a minor nitpick and the only thing i wasn't to fond of in an otherwise great first issue. Oh and the Romy stuff hate that too  :P

Post by: DonPriceTag on July 26, 2018, 08:03:02 PM
I think it was less "good friends" and more Gambit not having any problems with Drake. Bobby even in Lui's run seemed to start all their conversations with apprehension. As if he wasn't expecting much of a response worth considering. And then get surprised by the answer.

Certainly not best buds but Liu's AXM had Gambit playing big brother of sorts to Bobby which culminated in the Dark Iceman Saga.  Don't know that you can survive an experience like that with how the team fought for him as he tried to freeze the world and not come out of it being closer.


So yeah the Iceman thing really makes no sense.  Whatever beef they had in the past should have been laid to rest in AXM.

Well, I'm a little late so I probably have nothing to add that hasn’t already been said but anyway... I too hated the women’s faces looking the same, all too round and Barbie-like but I was relieved that Gambit looked way better on the pages subsequent to the wedding. Not because he was naked most of the time – although that was great – but his face looked more like Gambit should look. I was expecting that he dropped the sheet in Kitty’s face and luckily he did. 

I enjoyed the book overall but it does bother me that there were two full pages of Mystique – we definitely didn’t need that – and that Rogue had so much more panel time than Gambit. All I want is for the next issue to be more balanced because I loved Gambit’s interactions in the beginning of the issue and am looking forward to seeing him forming new dynamics with different characters. The action scenes seem promising.

Gotta admit, I love how KT explains her decisions regarding people’s concerns and complaints. I for one had no problems whatsoever with the way Kurt and Bobby were joking about Gambit, because I saw it as a joke.

It is 4 page action suquence with Gambit and Deadpool in issue 3. I don`t think it is a fight. I think they are working together or fighting togehter someone. If they will fight then they will probably fight in issue 2.

By no means are Bobby and Remy best buds  and i didn't get the big brother vibe either. The dislike for one another has always been one sided, as in Bobby not liking Gambit see X-Men 45 the whole issue with Rogue also the card game in X-Men 48. In UXM 340 Remy goes with Storm to visit Bobby who is with his dad in the hospital after he is attacked, something Remy didnt have to do. The biggest clue though to how Bobby feels about Remy is in Gambits first ongoing issue 20 where Fontanelle tells Gambit that Bobby looks at Remy with pity thinks he is cool but deeply unhappy. To my knowledge they started being depicted as friendly to one another and hanging out (apart from being team mates) was in X-Men 165 where Remy gets his sight back and Bobby is helping Remy out acting like a guide, then after that it was in Lius Runs on X23 and AXM Bobbys dislike of Remy was gone, so they are good friends not best buds and Nightcrawler has had a dig or two at Remy but the two play ping pong together as i said and Kurt gets on with everyone. i dunno why i typed all this out but theres the relationship

I enjoyed the issue, the artwork has a bit of an anime style to it, where the characters, like the females, look similar, but I don't really have a problem with it and it could be much worse. Look at the artwork that Weapon X had for two or three issues.
https://readcomics.io/weapon-x-2017/chapter-15/3

And what they have now.
https://readcomics.io/weapon-x-2017/chapter-20/5

As for the Bobby and Kurt thing... I don't care. However, I'm not a fan of Deadpool, so to me it feels like he's being shoehorned into this and to make sure that the first few issues sell since he's popular. But I get it, it's a business and your product needs to sell in order for it to last, but like I said, I'm just not a fan of him.

I was fairly satisfied with KT's responses to fans' concerns regarding #1. If the Bobby/Kurt scene was meant as them joking, that's how I'll see it.


As for Mystique...I wish she would have revealed that, having heard of the "wedding of the century", Mystique had decided to crash it with the intent of doing something nefarious, but, realizing that it's her daughter's wedding instead, her tiny little heart grew three times larger and she scrapped her plans for Rogue's sake. It would have made more sense to me...and yeah, Rogue wanting her mom there isn't surprising. It's an emotional day for her. Even if her mother is as crazy as they come...


They took my question. Dope stuff.


Ha! I guessed (correctly) it was you, Don. I find it hilarious KT totally misinterpreted the question at first...

Eh joking on not the the scene is still kind of out of place.  It would be one thing if they explained why they were there for Rogue and then joked about Gambit but instead they just took a shot at Gambit without any sort of reasoning as to why they are actually Team Rogue.  So for that reason the joke fell flat.
Title: Re: Mr. & Mrs. X #1 (Spoilers)
Post by: Paradox Jast on July 27, 2018, 11:02:35 PM
Yeah, in retrospect and with an explanation I understand.


If they had actually been talking to him directly and saying 'aw hell no, we're team Rogue', I would have understood it as a joke a lot easier.


No huge deal, that's the thing about writing and art - everyone has their own interpretation.

There's good reason for him to show up in it. Although I wasn't expecting it to be so soon, and I also wasn't expecting him to be introduced the way he was.

Yeah, the joke didn't land for me. Rogue didn't seem to interpret it as a joke, and I followed her lead in reading it.


A "Very funny, guys." or similar snarky tone marker would have clarified it.

What exactly is that reason?  Can't just be Rogue as if so what makes him any more likely to show up than Mags or Human Torch?

Working with Rogue in Uncanny Avengers, developing a mutual respect for each other, and Deadpool having insane amounts of feelings for her seems like a good enough reason.


Cue everyone moaning about a third wheel being introduced. Tough. Like I said, it makes total sense for Wade to show up. I just don't agree with it being so soon.

His relationship with Rogue (again, because he's everywhere) is enough reason for his appearing so soon after the wedding be a bad idea. Complaints are legit. But, again, he sells, so his being there will help the book. it's cool when you're Deadpool fan, for me his showing up everywhere is just annoying.

Title: Re: Mr. & Mrs. X #1 (Spoilers)
Post by: andresa on July 28, 2018, 08:34:18 PM
But the thing is a lot of characters have history with a bunch of other characters. Yes, Deadpool has recent history with Rogue but so do other characters. He is the one showing up because he is popular.


IMO Deadpool's feelings for Rogue are the very reason for him being in a book dedicated to a married Rogue to be annoying. His appearing now or later is just as bad.

Title: Re: Mr. & Mrs. X #1 (Spoilers)
Post by: andresa on July 28, 2018, 09:18:49 PM
It's not my reason, it's the obvious reason. I never said there wasn't a link. My point is that Deadpool is not the only character with history with one of the leads but he is undoubtedly one of the most popular hence he is the one showing up instead of a lesser known character.


You're a Deadpool fan, I get it. Good for you. I think Deadpool is annoying. Let's just agree to disagree on this one.

Post by: cc008 on July 28, 2018, 09:43:18 PM
None of this has to do with me being a Deadpool fan. All I said initially was that he had good reason for showing up eventually in this book. He has a link to Rogue. That's the reason. Too bad that it's him and not Magneto or Torch or anyone else. I wouldn't be surprised if either of them came up at some point too. But Wade's number came up. AND YET AGAIN.. I do NOT agree with him showing up already. I'm just saying that it makes sense that he did  eventually. I feel like that much should be clear to everyone. Regardless of whether he's anyone's favorite character or they detest him.

No indication in the story he came looking for Rogue.

Also poor taste for Gambit to have to share panel time with Rogues ex already. 

Gotta love how incompetent Gambit is.  Needs Lavish to save his relationship and then needs Deadpool to save his wife.  What next? Is Mags going to have to show Gambit how his wife likes to be made love to?

Dude can't even protect his own wife and honeymoon isn't over yet.  But thank God Deadpool was there to save her.  Now that's a real man.

I wouldn't exactly say Rogue is "saved". She might still need some saving. But I'm with you in that I'm not a fan of Deadpool showing up so fast. But I'll role with it. It is an ongoing and they wanted to put Deadpool in to sell some following issues.


I agree that I wouldn't mind seeing Belladonna show up considering Rogue is Gambit's second wife and there is history there. That's if they plan on having anymore of Gambit and Rogue's "past" show up.

I think the most off-putting thing I notice (and it seems everyone else does too) is the nose. He draws Gambit with a very rounded, often overstated/oversized nose. Gambit has typically always been drawn with very 'sharp' features, including the nose, so perhaps that's why it just doesn't seem to 'click'.

I already posted this in CBR but I'm really digging how Gambit's using his powers in this preview. In more recent times his cards have been at worst more like bug zappers or at best like Jubilee's powers/gun shots. But I love how much more effective and destructive they seem in these previews, reminds me of the old times.

On one hand, I'd like to see Remy tell off Magneto somehow. Like where Mags says something like "If you ever hurt her..." and Remy just says something cool/threatening towards him.


On the other hand, it would be nice for Rogue and Mags to just acknowledge they were a mistake and move on but I have a feeling that wouldn't be soap opera-y enough for X-Men and would get disregarded with the next writer who ships them.

I don’t think Magneto cares enough to have this kind of attitude. And it’s hard for me to picture a scenario where Remy would come out on top just because he said something smart to Magneto. I don’t have the stomach to see it. I just don’t want to read anything regarding Magneto in this book or as long as Remy and Rogue are still together.

I don't think Remy or Magneto need to tell each other off like that but Kelly Thompson could gain a lot of Remy fans (who don't like Rogue) by clearing up some of the issues that fans have with Rogneto. How did Rogue's past connection with Mags develop into a desire to be with him so quickly and how was she able to overlook his past (such as his key involvement in Antarctica) when she was so much tougher judging Gambit all through out the past. Even just writing some sort of interaction/dialogue that helps us understand Rogue's past attraction to Mags and how she got over him to realize she's loves Remy more could only strengthen their marriage.

I guess I should clarify, the main reason I'd want Remy to tell off Magneto is because it's always annoyed me how Magneto has seemed to brush him away as nothing more than a common thief. So, I'm basically just being petty lol


But yeah, something like what you said would be nice

I don’t think Magneto cares enough to have this kind of attitude. And it’s hard for me to picture a scenario where Remy would come out on top just because he said something smart to Magneto. I don’t have the stomach to see it. I just don’t want to read anything regarding Magneto in this book or as long as Remy and Rogue are still together.


But this book is not the right place for it, right?


I agree. Magneto doesnt seem the type to confront either of them, or be sour. And I dont see Gambit as the type to antagonize the situation. Personally, Rogue and Gambit were in a room together and in walked Mags, I can easily see Remy immediately asking her "Need a moment?" then briefly glance at Mags and walk off without a word. Maybe a nod, that I can also see Magneto returning because being sour or resentful about someone marrying his ex-girlfriend, is beneath him.

Another reason I don't really want him m around, outwardly he'd have almost no reaction, so it have to get deep into his feeling and I don't want to get deep into his feelings. Plenty of other x-writer who constantly want to write about what a poor tragic little unicorn he is and how he just has to kill people... keep in those books...


I see the post about a second printing, which is cool, but didn't say anything because I didn't know the source. It was from KT twitter, so definitely true, so hooray! Second printing


Though on sadder, but related news, my quest for variants is mixed...KT had a bunch of signed copies on her web store and I did get the Young variant but the Ramos was sold out and the kirkham and one that looked like a cheesy romance novel cover and the weird shiny boots one...the only ones left were the Campbell ones.

No Mags please.  Gambit shouldn't have anything to say to him as Mags never owed him anything.  Rogue did.  Bringing Mags in doesn't make sense unless Rogue is going to finally address the crap she pulled.


Yes to Jean-Luc and company.  Would be cool to see Gambit bringing Rogue to New Orleans to meet the fam only for it to be a big surprise party for the new couple with the Thieves Guild out in force.  And Rogue to be left wondering WTF she got herself into marrying Gambit.

Love to read something along these lines. Seeing the Guild characters' reactions could make for some fun, even comedic, moments. I can totally see Lapin telling Remy that for a so-called lady's man he sure gets married a lot or Tante Mattie being supportive.

BTW, I saw this post on Tumblr of someone suggesting that the egg in Mr. and Mrs. X could be the Momentary Princess. I haven't read the Gambit solo in ages so I don't know whether it is plausible but I do remember a flash-forward where Remy and Rogue were married and had the gem. Anyway, someone with a better memory could probably debunk this.
Title: Re: Mr. & Mrs. X #1 (Spoilers)
Post by: belay on August 05, 2018, 10:44:25 AM
It could very well be the Momentary Princess as it was something Jean Luc tried to get in 1897 and also had sent Gambit to acquire it but I think it might be Phoenix Egg.

The Momentary Princess would be a great allusion to that scene from the Gambit solo, but it was a gem and this thing is an egg...so yeah, probably not. Wasn't the gem destroyed by the Marauders or something?

I don't want to see Magneto either. I just don't think it's necessary and it wouldn't help anything. Rogneto to me was someone interjecting their own bizarre fan-fiction into the main X-Men storyline and wound up really messing things up and creating a lot of convolution in the process. I'm completely willing to just leave all that stuff alone and basically forget it at this point. But that's just me.

If the Rogue and Gambit series hadn't ended with them getting back together, what else would have been different in those last two issues? What story changes would have been made? How would they have parted ways?




KT: They would have gone on a different emotional journey and ended up in a different place where they felt like their story was truly done (at least for now)…instead of seeing it through different eyes and feeling that re-kindled love.
We might have used some different flashbacks…but MOSTLY we would have just showed them having different emotional reactions to the memories and experiences they had on the island. And when they re-absorbed their memories and all that trauma and baggage that comes with it at the end they would have seen their experiences on the island free of trauma as a beautiful but bittersweet gift they’d been given…but one that was temporary. And they would have moved on…at least for now.
I don’t think, even if we’d done that, that the book would ever fully be closed on them as a couple.
Title: Re: Mr. & Mrs. X #1 (Spoilers)
Post by: andresa on August 10, 2018, 08:15:28 AM
As much as I didn’t want them back together, I think the miniseries would’ve been pointless if its purpose were to give them yet another closure. Their realizing (or, in this case, more like Rogue’s realizing) their love and their story would never be over felt much more satisfying for those who like these characters together.

On second thought, if they had wound up apart it would’ve been Gambit who would’ve gone through the realization that their relationship would not work out and move on (at least for the time being), which would’ve been much more character development than what we ended up with, that is, Rogue wanting to be with Gambit, without him doing much.
Title: Re: Mr. & Mrs. X #1 (Spoilers)
Post by: Nekobaghira on August 10, 2018, 11:24:32 AM
I don't think it would have been pointless because the baggage needed to be dealt with and a main X book would never have had enough space to take care of the crap and still maintain whatever its point is, though most of them seem pointless at this time.

We can literally say, they "talked" as it were and leave all the stuff people hold against each character aside with, they dealt with it.

It's a closure of sorts, even if some don't like the outcome. Bottom line, its actually given both characters a new start.

Would I have married them after all this stuff, no. Not enough was done to fix their mess and I still don't believe Rogue's apology, came too late and didn't feel heart felt with Gambit telling her not too. Didn't work for me. Her s*** was far worse than what was shown for Gambit. A proper courting though, with no bs ... yeah, I can see that. Everything is such a rush. I suppose the audience aged when the characters don't so what was 20 years for rl, was only months or a year or so for Gambit and Rogue.

It's all about Rogue and that rubs the wrong way for me as well. It's too early to see how much its all about Rogue with the ongoing but we'll see by issue 4 if not earlier.

That is a long way of saying, Gambit would have been like, "Mags, really Rogue, WTF," and then peaced out.


And really the one scene that should have put nail in the coffin was Rogue's memories of her using Gambit's own harbor speech to justify screwing Mags.

P. S.  I'm really liking the post-marriage arcs .  My buoy is happy , so I'm happy .  I just hope Rogue proves herself worthy of Gambit's love and never hurts him again .  Love conquers all.

Thank you so much for this warm welcome , which encourages a newbie like me to open up and start interacting in a new forum with out hesitation .  My love for Gambit goes back to me watching X-man TV series ( 1992 ) .  What a unique and special character.  Literally the dream man of every girl and lover goals.


Well, with out further ado , let's talk about Mr.  & Mrs.  X.  I hope this focuses on interpersonal relationship development between the newly married couple and not just endless missions.  I was overjoyed to see them in bed enjoying their honeymoon, almost like a normal couple.  After so much crap, pain , heart break, missions , fights and what not- basically a stormy life since childhood , finally he's happy and is with the love of his life , who's now his wife.  I live for Remy's happiness.  Urrgghh, can Marvel not keep him happy for a while before the next s*** storm breaks down ?? Hope Remy enjoys some much deserved much needed happy times in honeymoon.  I love their banter.
I care about Anna Marie , only when she's with Remy.  Other than that , I don't really give a damn.  But I am a Romy fan since childhood, and since I grew up with it chances are , no matter what , I'm gonna remain one for life.

First of all: Welcome!


Secondly: Agree with most points (I like to think I care about Rogue as much as I care about Gambit - although I'm always biased towards Gambit haha). It'd be nice to see this marriage last a good long time, but with how Marvel treated Pete and MJ, I'm always nervous. I think Money Talks though, so if sales for MMX keep up then they'll leave them be. Also, I gotta give a lot of props to KT (and the X-editorial) for bringing them back together and making R&G a success (even though there are those who didn't care for it).


And yes, keeping my fingers crossed for some cajun/white-streaked babies  :)

Yeah, I wonder that too or was that strategy at play in hopes of higher sales? Not sure. I know those who love it think it might have done better with more promotion, on the other hand, look at R&G .... not knowing what it was might have helped more. Not sure, can never tell with Marvel.

It's the drop off between #1 and #2 that say more, who knows.

X-23 from 95k to 35k.


Funny but the only thing that saves from huge drop is Venom variants now, lol.


As for good sales for MMX it was the help of surprise wedding that made a lot of buzz. Also now people know what to expect from MMX book.

Gail Simone actually posted when people were talking about how bad domino's drop was. She said those numbers didn't include everything, which we did know and also that the orders for number 2 are placed before number one is delivered. Which is something I didn't know, So a lot of the big drops are the owners predicting that there will be a big drop.
