    Additional things to consider:

    People act and/or behave differently in different company. On the Dead Souls squad she is the resident creepy girl. At the wedding, she is guilt driven scotch guzzling wedding ruinier trying to help as best she can. Plus cake.
    An example that encapsulates what kind of complex woman Illyana is: She is a totally different person with Kitty. She also behaves differently with her original NM crew. Etc etc.

    Yeah I think people expect characters to be robots that behave the same way all the time time. Most of us have a range of emotions and feelings and different people bring out different things in us. While I expect Magik to largely be aloof, distant, creepy with a dark sense of humor, I presume she like most of us will have moments when she acts differently than her normal. As long as those times don't overshadow her more natural personality then I don't see the issue.
    It's hard for me to listen to someone not in my position. A caterpillar can't relate to what an eagle envisions.

    Anytime I see Magik & Rogue interacting, I think back to the time where Illyana imprisoned Rogue in her Limbo-on-Earth Hell Prison

    Rogue seems to be pretty friendly with everyone, but she doesn't have a clearly defined best friend. Unless you count Gambit, I guess. Outside of him, Wolverine and Iceman probably come the closest.
    This, Rogue is friends with everyone. She is closest to Wolvie, Bobby and maybe Storm. But she is also close with Sam, Kitty, Rachel, Jean & Betsy and had strong character moments with Shiro and Northstar. Also she is now BFF's whether we like it or not with Wanda and has a mentor relationship with Jan.

    Both Cap and Janet were priming Rogue for Avengers leadership in Uncanny Avengers.

    Really glad you guys are enjoying the preview. Hope you like the issue next week!

    Just wanted to pop in and manage expectations on one point - the rings.

    It's going to come up later in the series (I promise!) but don't expect to see more about them in issue #1 than you can already see in this preview. The reasons for that are mostly due to trying to coordinate between Gold 30 and MMX 1 (which were being drawn at the same time - it was a very tough coordination to do all around for everyone - and David and Oscar were terrific under tough circumstances). Anyway, as a result we weren't able to integrate the rings successfully into Gold 30...which means I couldn't integrate them into MMX in a way that made sense...but it will be coming up later.

    Yes the art is very pretty but... Look at Rogue's face in that third panel then look at Illyana's face in the fifth panel right below. Tsk! Tsk! Tsk!
    While technically sound, I'm not feeling the "Disney-Princess" features of the women's faces.

    Makes sense, thanks for letting us know! It's so good to see both Rogue and Gambit happy for once. Can't wait to read the first issue next week! Feels good to know that Remy and Rogue are in good hands!

    I thought Rogue was the "Colossus has a sister?" list.

    Rogue is just using her as a teleport service since Colossus grabbed Kurt.

    I thought it looked fairly clear that Rogue grabbed majik to teleport her to the mansion to find the collar and then port back to the wedding. It's not like they have to be bff's for that. Majik wants to do something helpful after torching her brother's wedding and feeling terrible for that, so she's not being as 'creepy' as she normally would.

    Edit: D'oh, I was too slow!
