I am sure memories won`t be erased or they would start without memories in #1, already.

Did you mean to post this for the R&G thread?

Maybe she meant more like them reliving those memories in a sense and not really getting them erased.


That's what I'm thinking (because that happened a lot in the movie). Still be able to respect the history while also giving some room for a reset of sorts. How she'll do it is another story.

I'm in the minority but I don't like the premise of the movie for which inspiration is being drawn. I think I should stop while I'm ahead. This is clearly not for me.

Memory erasing? Really? I don't know.


If anything like what happened in that movie happens here, this isn't going to be a story you can just bail on boss... Like I said this is scary, but interesting. I don't think think we'd be able to ignore it away. It's getting kind of funny now.
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

Yes that would make more sense.

I suppose but if its like the movie, isn't it rehashing? I've never seen the movie, I am basing my opinion on the wiki and whatnot.

Yeah saw that over at CBR. I may disagree with her vision of Gambit but by all accounts she does her research and engages with fans so congrats to her.

Agreed, I saw it on twitter. Good for her! I hope she does well with her exclusive with Marvel, even if I don't like her take on Gambit.  ;)

Yeah I think its a smart move on their part. Seems like she's been pretty well received and, aside from here, the majority of feedback I've been hearing about R&G has been positive. Makes me wonder if they'll give her an ongoing X-book

*chuckles* well "here" is very specific for one character, while "there" has more interest in other characters with specifics thrown in. 

If you are not as vested in Gambit and are just reading the book for whatever reason, then I'm certain its okay - clearly its getting good reviews but I would say those reviewing aren't necessarily vested in one or the other. They're just commenting on what they feel is a "good" story. Nothing wrong with that. :)

It's vestment where the passion comes from - those not really caring all that much about either character have an easier time with the story. IMO.

edit: added thought

For example, when as a group of Xmen fans looking at Astonishing Xmen, we've pretty much agreed its a well written book. Soule has crafted an interesting story. As a Gambit fan, there isn't much. For me, I've dropped the well written book because my favorite isn't really doing anything.

Here with this book or at least with issue one, I don't think Gambit is shown in a positive light, he's not being portrayed as I would have wanted. And that is on me and I'm alright with it. Others don't mind for whatever the reason. :)

Well, I get your point, but even the other Gambit fans that I know in other communities liked R&G - it just comes down to personal opinion in the end (like you pointed out). My point is just that KT being a Marvel Exclusive is still a good move on their part. She may not have the name recognition but she's a fairly new writer and it seems like a lot of people like her stuff.

I'm not knocking her or her job or exclusive contract with Marvel. I did say in an earlier post, good for her. It's a deal she wanted, Marvel wanted and good for her.
