    I want issues of a happy and overall funtioning Romy has adventures. The drama has been focused so long on their relationship that I'm more then ready to have the drama being placed in some other aspect on the story.

    I might also add that I think KT is doing a wonderful job on the story. She just needs to ask herself more questions like: "If I include Magneto in this comic what does the readers want from that appearence?" Not only what does the story dictate. Most readers would probably have told her that either you move on and not include him or he needs to be smacked around a bit, verbally and/or physically.

    The same with fights. With Rogue having WM's powers she's a powerhouse. Heck WM himself had the death fear aspect added because writers thought he was to powerful back in the avengers days. From a story point of view Rogue can clear up most fights by herself. Just punch it hard enough. Gambits powers have been written with a very sliding powerscale and in general he needs to be written more powerful not to just be a nuisance in fights while Rogue starts cleaning house. Sure with clever writting his affect would be more with his wits. But just look at JL or Avengers with CA or Batman. That balance is never easy. The easy solution would be him being someone who with a bit more deceit can take down the big guns. While still respecting the difference between Rogues powers and his.
    Yeah I guess I just expected the book to be about Romy not a continuation of let's deal with Rogue's issues. We already had a mini for that where Rogue supposedly got over her drama and yet the first 8 issues of this comic just seem to be rehashing stuff the mini was meant to resolve. Having said that, I would agree it is a well written story. KT is a talented writer. I just question her story choices as I think this horse has been beat enough.

    As for the fights, at least we are now seeing Gambit being clever like he was against Longshot. That scan that seemed to indicate a charged punch is one avenue to even the power scale. I always viewed Gambit has having a utility belt similar to say Batman where he had all kinds of objects to charge. So depending on the fight he may charge his fists, charge his kits, throw cards, throw spikes, or even have a gun or rifle for longer distance attacks. Basically a guy will to throw the kitchen sink at you in order to win a fight.
    It's hard for me to listen to someone not in my position. A caterpillar can't relate to what an eagle envisions.

    Smack Magneto for what? Saving Rogue's life or her always going to him when she needs a unapologetic friend who tells it like it is? This is 616 Rogue. Not some off brand fantasy version.

    I would agree. Mags is not the problem with Rogueneto as Mags owes Gambit nothing. It is Rogue that chose him. Mags need not ever have appeared in the book as there really is nothing to resolve between the two and no reason for Rogue to confide in him. All that was required was for her to tell Gambit that while she could have dated whomever she wanted at the time because they were broken up, her choice in Mags was a poor one. That is all that ever needed to be said but for whatever reason KT refused to have Rogue say it.

    If she says that, after going back to him for help/advice...whatever...it paints Rogue as a idiot. That's a dangerous angle to play.

    I thought Kelly did say that through Remy's words in the miniseries. Remy said "letting go of past mistakes" and Rogue didn't refute him ; she had didn't retort: being w/ Mags was NOT a mistake!

    I posted a Tumblr post about why Rogue feels so indebted to Mags. It had been covered somewhat over the years here.

    No my point is she shouldn't have gone back to him for help/advice. It is pretty immature to be sneaking around talking to your ex.

    You don't see how that would appear to be a cop out? Why can't Rogue own up to it directly? Further, she tried to excuse it by saying she needed to see other people to figure out what she wanted. Yeah great. No one is saying you can't see other people. We are saying Mags probably isn't the best choice given the history. It would be like me telling my girlfriend, oh I need to experience other things before I can figure out if I want to be with you so I am going to go sleep with your sister now.
