You guys think Greg Pak would write Gambit? I liked the way he handled him in Storm #9 and wouldn't mind him taking him on more long term. Maybe we get his Action Comics artist/co-writer, Aaron Kuder, to join him?

I'm familiar with Pak through the Storm solo. I think he handled him well enough, but my only request is that he want to write him.

It is just a Death of X variant cover. There are also covers with Jean, Colossus and Nightcrawler deaths.

I really like this variant. I love Rogue`s eyes here.

Oh ok... wait. You know they all died once, right?

Yeah, but I doubt that we need to worry about this. It is just a variant ;)

They kill off Gambit and I'll be peeved to say the least. I don't care that is "just a variant". Gambit has not been treated well via Uncanny Avengers. This doesn't bode well. And really it looks like a freakin' final prop for Rogue. So that Rogue gets a story and the Gambit fan loses their favorite character.  Yeah, I'm so excited for this. NOT.

Yeah Purp, you might be 100% right. The difference is, all the the variants are abstract dipictions of stuff thats actually happened... Gambit has never died in the main universe. What would be the point of teasing this? Unless we start getting variant covers of Beast, Storm, and Iceman dying, I'm going to be a bit concerned here. There's also the fact that Rogue's eyes are red/black as if she imprinted him before dying and shes obviously distraught. That's a lot of story for just a harmless click bait variant. But, again maybe Duggan & Co. are just screwing with us.  ???

I sincerely doubt that Duggan even knows about alternative covers or who is doing them.

More covers here:
http://comicbook.com/marvel/2016/06/02/exclusive-x-mens-death-of-x-comes-for-deadpool-cyclops-and-warpa/
http://www.newsarama.com/29188-some-x-men-take-a-dirt-nap-in-death-of-x-variant-covers.html

Warpath is on the cover for New Avengers. Writer of NA may even do not know who Warpath is)
It is just a variant. Gambit and Rogue are on it because they sell.

Let's hope so... otherwise I'm going to Expedia.

You see this?! It's like we've all been abused so much that we panic at the slightest hint that something bad might happen! You like this, Marvel? You like what you've done to us?!

Would have rather seen a Gambit holding a dead Rogue variant cover.

Yeah. Because that has far more reasonable doubt and the threat of finality. Rogue is a darling and will probably never be sidelined.
