Look everyone! Married folk hijinks with Gambit in Magneto colors!


Pretty sure if I did this to my wife in public it'd be a problem...
no kidding, acid in the eyes. WTF. I know it'd be a problem if I did that to my hubby.

I think it comes down to imagination. I don't think these writers understand what marriage is. It's not long-term roommates. This little scene shows me all I need to know about Leah William's views. I can't help but wonder if they included those Magneto colors as another shot at Gambit- she did write a Magneto-centric book with Scarlet Witch, that whole trial nonsense. I really think these writers are super salty about these two being married and are just itching to have Rogue out there hopping from relationship to relationship as she was post-AvX.


The only person that seems to be able to write them believably is KT. Yeah, way too Rogue-centric, but it wasn't this. Or Gambit sitting around a tree house cooking, or playing cards in the basement, or randomly stealing things "for attention", or whatever the @#@$ was happening in Excalibur. This is small, but... cmon. Not cool. I could take this after having Gambit used well over a decent period of time. But tacked onto the Racky Lebeau levels of nonsense we have had to endure?


Beautiful art spoiled by a horribly written scene.
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

Guys relax. Orange team plays baseball vs purple/red team. Gambit is a part of purple/red team.

Gambit has small role but a good written one in X-Treme #2 that gives a hope for a bigger role for him in this mini. I was glad to see him as Wild Card again.
He is front and center on the cover of issue 5 so hopefully he will do something cool. Claremont is still awesome.





I hope everyone is fine and I wish all you a great 2023!
Stay safe and be happy!

Purp! Good to hear from you!


Glad the extreme appearance was good. The exterminator mini was just very juvenile and ridiculous all  around. There were constant jokes about dazzler’s butt and one panel that had boom boom blasting her explosions from her boobs.. so squirting juice boxes is par for course here…

Definitely comes down to imagination. Which a lot of writers, unfortunately, either don't have or are afraid to reach for, so they go for the laziest easiest solution to inject conflict and drama... or really flat attempts at humor.

Feels more like Gambit getting cuckolded by a writer that coincidentally just came off of a book called "The Trial of Magneto" and writing another book where she focused more on Polaris than most...

I don’t know a lot about the writer, besides writing Trial of Magneto, and was it X-Factor with Lorna? But if she did want to imply a ‘cuckold’ moment, she could have done it easier in Trial of Magneto. Some kind of rogneto reference wouldn’t have been entirely out of place there, since it involved Magneto, and X-men team Rogue was on, but she didn’t. Instead, rogue was absent from most of the mini and we find out she was out shopping with gambit, lol (which was a funnier scene than this one, I’ll give you that .) Though, I can’t say if that because the writer didn’t want to write it or because there an editorial gag order on mentioning it, lol. Would not be surprised if that was the case either.

I don’t know how many people are reading the captain marvel story, but so far it’s pretty good.

Some posts get lost in the transfer?

@ Don, yeah, I'll see if I can move them or find them. I found what I did, I didn't take all of Nov 2022. It's here now. I missed December and it took a few to figure out the merge. LOL.

Zero expectations but very afraid of the potential character damage.

Vague... very vague. I'm sure Rogue will be blameless and Gambit will be off doing the pettiest crap in the world.
