Yes, she should have been wearing a red shirt, just to make it obvious from the start.. ;)

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

Despite my many concerns with this book...
Amount of characters
Roster composition
Weird (weak) Character Connection
Shakey premise
Child Combatant (s)
Artwork
Dialogue
Not too subtle political satire


This book does visually look better with Storm being part of it... Have to admit that. Her presence at least addresses a couple of my aforementioned concerns. Taylor has yet to sell me on this yet. It's a visual medium that visually isn't impressive. To me anyway. Not for a flagship title.

I won't be spending a dime on comics again unless Gambit is a lead or a main... or if there is a book that multiple people here say is definitely worth it.


So business as usual again, I guess.

Storm is officially joining Xmen Red, I got this from Tom Taylor's tweet.

That is a gorgeous cover. Glad Storm's joining. Always liked her dynamic with Gambit

The new costumes are fine... but why did they have to place that "X" on their stomachs like that?, because Jean's classic costume did?

Storm looks absolutely stunning. Love the dynamic Jean, Gambit, Storm, Nightcrawler & Laura bring and excited to see them all interacting.  Gabby is fun in a Molly from Runaways vibe and hopefully keeps the series from drowning in too much doom and gloom (which, I love the political angle. But there needs some lightness to balance some really heavy tones). 


Caroline: I know it sounds crazy, but alcohol helps.

Really cool costume for Storm.
Excited to see Gambit interact with Ororo and Laura.

I'm not a fan of the X placement either. It's like my mind wants it to be a little lower, like on a belt or higher up on the chest
