Pic made me think about the Kermit meme.
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

Gambit was ok in Gold. I liked it





Also I hope Gambit will stay with team till issue 30.

Thanks for the image Purp! The art looks nice. :)

this is a New Pyro called Simon, he was kinda a bad guy but not really and Iceman gave him a second chance to redeem himself and become an X-Man, he went to bat for him with Kitty

Sounds lame. Glad I hard passed on Gold after seeing the author and team.


I didn't get "pro Romy" from that... It's observing continuity. Writers chosing to embrace and ignore certain aspects of characters is the reason Gambit turned into Racky, why Mystique is a X-Man, how Rogue ended up with Magneto, how Wolverine became an Avenger, all of the Inhumans vs X-Men foolishness, so on and so forth. I think it's healthy for storytelling and great for business as you encourage people to read other books. Otherwise we're reading collections short stories.

I mean... Okie dokie? I don't get the point of your rant. Guggenheim has literally said Gambit/Rogue is one of his favorite couples of all time in an interview and that's where my "pro-Romy" comment comes from. Though, I can't find that interview now so I might have hallucinated it.  Anyway, all I was saying was that I'm not surprised he went there instead of a more generic, but still continuity observing "I've already been married once and I can't see myself getting married again."

Guggs is pro-Romy but this issue didn't sound pro-Romy at all.

Wow, I just noticed - in the image posted, Gambit's eyes are the wrong color. I didn't notice at first, now it sticks out. It is amazing that editorial doesn't tell the artists these things or maybe the colorist forgot?

"rant"? C'mon, that was like three lines...  ??? . The point of my "rant" was, I don't think it reflects his like or dislike of the relationship, but recognizing it exists especially in the light of an upcoming wedding. I'm sure if Angel and Psylocke were still a thing and Warren were there, the joke/ comment from Kurt would have been extended to him. Writers have this thing about ignoring or adding aspects to characters to suit their narrative. I mean, not bringing it up would have been stranger than anything IMO. I blame weak editorial. Even in the case of clown pants Gambit. I think I've voiced on several occasions my disdain of that cameo. I'd love for someone to address that, even if to explain it away... got a thread idea lol.


Did he say that? I'm asking, I didn't read the issue.

Well, that is good, still its a "consistency" mistake sort of thing. Good to know it was right everywhere else but that panel.  :)

I like Gambit being in stuff but he needs to not ever say that again.  Ever. 


Maybe it's Racky.

Nah Racky just stood around. This Gambit seems competent enough to track down Mesmero when none of the others could even tell that was him. He just talks oddly.
