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.


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.

Your reasons for Deadpool's appearance apply to a variety of other characters that's why I disagree that he is an obvious choice due to his link to Rogue. I think his showing up is because he draws attention.

We're going around in circles here so I'm done.

Why aren't we talking about Bella or someone connected to Gambit showing up?

Oh right, this is a Rogue book masquerading as a Romy book.

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.

Well she would have died without Deadpool so I would say saved.


And I am being a bit flippant.  While I don't like it, it is not a huge deal for me yet.

She wasn't 'saved', she was kidnapped! ;)

Work in progress by Terry Dodson. MMX 5 I suppose.

Gambit is slightly better-looking in this, I guess. Compared to the previous covers anyway.

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'.

Yeah, if he changed the nose, it would look fine. That being said, this sketch is not too bad.

Pardon my double-post, but preview pages for #2 are here:

Edit: It's issue #2 and not #4 as the header indicates on that first page (it says #2 in the small print below).

That's pretty great. Gambit deserves to give him another punch just because, but I like the card throw

I'm excited to see what KT has for Jean-Luc Lebeau and Tante Mattie. Belladonna as possibility interesting and Magneto better be handled right.

This right here is so true. If Kelly Thompson is able to handle all of these properly than she could gain a lot more Remy fans, even the ones who hate Rogue.
