That's it! That's why I thought it would be weird, I just couldn't quite put my finger on it.

EvilClareToo, I gotta disagree with Storm being the best candidate. Even leaving out the fact that Storm was a kid when they met, I don't know, that pairing just seems weird to me. Don't get me wrong, I like the relationship that they have too, I've recently been getting some old X-men issues (from about the time Gambit joined), and I love their bit in it. It seems like a very unique relationship in the X-universe. And speaking of their friendship, have they had any interaction whatsoever in recent years? Those early 90s issues are the only ones I can think of with a direct interaction between the two. They should bring back that dynamic.
I totally agree with you and squeeks...I would love someone new for Gambit (but not Joelle, please no...) I just mentioned Storm because from a neutral standpoint, it does look good on paper. But I wouldn't be surprised if Marvel execs don't start thinking in that direction now that Storm is a free agent. These are the same guys that destroyed the whole Gambit/Rogue thing and turned it into the carwreak that it is today.

Storm and Gambit had quite a bit of interaction in 2000's in Xtream X Men, where Gambit and Storm actually kissed, and she admitted that for the first time she was jealous of Rogue. That was the first time I thought, hmmmm, that could be interesting done right. The friendship dynamic was brought out again in the Gambit/Storm vampire story, and their scenes in the X-23 series.

With mutants being jump started again there are lots of new people out there to be actualized by a clever mind, though I for one, don't care if his new love interest is a mutant or not.

It was only a matter of time, sadly.

Lets just hope they remember this is a Gambit series when they write the lines between the two, and not a Rogue Fanboy Explosion like the rest of the X-Universe has become.

I'm fully expecting to see Rogue show Gambit how to throw a card or steal better in that arc.

I don't think we need to worry too much. Asmus was asked about this in an interview I read, and he was pretty clear that Rogue wasn't there to be a romantic interest. Maybe it will be the opportunity for Remy to say goodbye to Rogue for good in a mature, adult manner....or is that too much to hope for?????

Finally got hold of a lot of issues of Gambit and Astonishing X Men: I am very pleased with both. Gambit is a roller coaster of fun, and Astonishing has that group dynamic that has been missing from so many X titles lately.

Yeah, I hope they don't take him off the Astonishing team. It's a good fit.

Meh. Not really a fan of Astonishing tbh. I am thoroughly please with Gambit though. Asmus is doing a great job. And I don't mind Rogue appearing. It may provide some closure. Like it or not, she is an extremely important part of his character history.

I actually like the outfit. He is quite dashing in the ole black and white.

Yeah, that's a nice outfit. Though I wouldn't like to see it every issue. Still not too fond of his default outfit for the series. Seems altogether bland. It just doesn't have the personality of the classic Gambit costume. I feel the same way about Rogue's green outfit. It just isn't as half as good as the costume she wore on the 90's toon.





Also, Gambit/Rogue 4 ever!
