The southern dialects not as strong is not only a good thing but would make sense by now. Neither character has lived in the South for some time so the accent should fade a little and only get stronger when in their "home" in the South.

Clear up some inconsistencies in the relationship, if that means the "talks" they've never had but should have? I dunno. Might feel old or too late, depends on how well its done. Of course we don't know what inconsistencies that the writer is thinking of.

I am sure KT told earlier that dialects in flashbacks will be bigger and smaller in present time.

The only consistent thing about their relationship is it's inconsistency.
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 have to admit, I am really liking everything they're saying and it's getting me a little hopeful for this series. I hope it's not just smoke and mirrors to try to get people like me to spend money.

Gambit is freakin' pathetic, yet again. This is the ad for the series. If that is how Gambit will be inside this mini, I'm so not buying this .... this is not how I want Gambit to be nor is that how I want to read him.

Edit: the image is small.

It was writtern by marketing department and not by Kelly Thompson. She warned fans about bad ad a few days before release. This ad has nothing to do with book.

And we are the internet savvy enough to find this information and know these things. Keep in mind there is a whole group of people who know nothing about this stuff.

It looks bad, and can't be taken back.

Ad is lame but is just an ad made by someone who has nothing to do with book. So I don`t worry about it.

The point being, if the person seeing that ad doesn't participate on the internet or do but not with comic books on the internet. There is no way for them to know 1)KT didn't write and it was pr, 2) why would they assume pr dept wrote it when KT's name is on the cover and 3) the stereotypical stigma or dogma is pushed, however you wish to deem it.

This ad is the thing that irks Gambit fans, and pushes the divide more strongly between the fans of both characters.
