Looks good... Don't know why it makes me think of Naruto?
Rogue being flung vagina-first at the first male that pops up on her radar isn't how I'd define "romance," but Marvel must be using a different dictionary than me.- NicoPony

I'm super psyched about this series. 


Things I'd like to see :

- A new hook for Gambit.    He's been done the same way for so long, he needs to grow as a character.    Maybe a new manifestation of his powers, something he needs to learn to control, some kind of professional growth for the character so it's not the same old boring 007 stuff (that doesn't really translate well to comics).   Would give us a sense that the old dog has some new tricks and give him some kind of internal struggle that doesn't revolve around cat sitting and resisting the temptation to bang every skirt he comes across. 


- A new twist to the Rogue/Gambit relationship.    Shared struggle is good but in general, they need a reason to rekindle some kind of tension beyond just "ur hot no ur hot".    This either needs to be a trait that Rogue discovers about Gambit or Gambit discovers about Rogue that's outside of their original attraction.    I was thinking of something like showing their more nurturing sides or some scenes where they discover their own unique brand of shared humour or something.    Hell, could be an intense love for camping, I don't really care but I'd like to see them discover something new about each other instead of it just being a retread of their baggage.   


- No damsel in distress for either of them.    Gambit and Rogue are both peak professionals I don't really want to see them shown as weak for the benefit of a relationship hook.   


- Lots and lots of combat.    I haven't seen Gambit actually kick anyone's ass in a long time.   I'll be pretty happy if this book shows some A-list challenges for both of them to overcome.   A meaningful threat where they need to step up their game and actually do so.

Well the "007" thing was only in operation during Asmus run as Fabian's was more action-adventure. Asmus' run was handicapped as you know. The angle wasnt really allowed to breathe IMO. I feel you about it getting old though, but not that part. My issue is the "Gambit's robbing someone"  thing that writers won't let go as if he's some sort of klepto and not part of an ancient order of thieves and more often than not doesnt steal for the hell of it but out of necessity and from certain marks. I too can do without ever seeing those cats again. I don't want to speculate on what KT has in store for the couple in terms of their relationship, but she seems honestly excited. But yeah, that damsel crap needs to go. Gambit is not some defenseless child that needs to be rescued despite what X-Men books will tell you. One of the reason a lot of people, even the Romy-detractors liked about the XXM run is that Claremont got them over their issues and into a place where it wasn't angsty anymore. Combat and action is important. I don't want to read a soap opera with a bunch of exposition and spilling of emotion. What do you mean A-list? Tombstone wasn't top shelf enough for you?! ;)

I think the closer we get the more she'll be sharing. Flood gates be a opening.
