Marvel.com interview Soule who maybe tipping his hand as to how he's going to handle the Gambit/ Rogue interactions.

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

Re: Astonishing
Wow, called it. I said it would TV episodic like or that it sounded that way to me.

I guess that would be fun and different but with such a big cast and with so few pages, and only a monthly release?  It'll either feel shallow or some characters will be left out of the limelight for too long. 

I'll definitely be waiting to hear about Gambit's role each issue before buying it.

Any new Soule interview kills hype for me for this book.

IDK, what he's saying sounds like how most marvel writers write. Characters disappear and re appear or have bigger or smaller influence on different issues and arc. He says it's all going to build up to something (maybe it will, maybe it won't.)

So Gambit is in the issue for 3 pages and 2 panels, but they are a good 3 pages, he goes through some emotions in those 3 pages , the issue was ok at best, mainly focused on Rachel

I didn't even know which book we're talking about ... Xmen Gold #6. I can't decide but will probably pick it up.

Issue was anticlimatic but I liked Gambit moments.


He had emotional moment with Storm and saved Pixie.

Gambit who is a guest star in this book had more panel time then most team except Kitty and Logan in 6 issues.
I wish Gambit would stay with Gold team.


Interesting if his appearence will make some affect on team future and Storm. She kissed him

Holy cow really?  Hm.  Maybe I can get it when I'm on lunch tomorrow.  This was the last issue in the arc, no?
