    Default Mr. & Mrs. X: Gambit and Rogue Appreciation 2020

    Mr. & Mrs. X: The Gambit and Rogue Appreciation Thread 2020 (a.k.a. Southern Comfort)

    Welcome to the Gambit and Rogue appreciation thread for 2020!

    The series Mr. & Mrs. X in 2019 found Gambit and Rogue's adventures as newlyweds taking them into Mojoworld where Mojo tried to make them the stars of his new romantic series. During their time there Rogue regained control of her powers, while Remy restored Spiral's soul. Upon return to their world, Rogue was baited into a conflict with Captain Marvel while Gambit left to reclaim his authority over the Thieves Guild. Rogue later rejoined him and they confronted and overcame a returned Candra.

    Rogue and Gambit didn't feature during HoX/PoX, but reemerged on the island of Krakoa to costar in the new Excalibur series.

    As we start 2020, Rogue is mysteriously encased in plant life and apparently in a coma after absorbing something blocking the Krakoan gate into the Otherworld. In the meantime, Gambit has been assisting the new Captain Britain, Betsy Braddock, while seeking to restore Rogue to normal.

    What will 2020 hold for them? What will they decide about "making more mutants"? Let's discuss it here!

    I'm currently reading the Nicieza Gambit run (vol. 3) issues 12-15 and boy is this a lot of fun! The last one has just Rogue, no Gambit, Nicieza really understood both characters.

    Just curious: does anyone know which trades all of these are collected in? It's the one thing I'm missing and I can't die 'till I've absorbed it all!

    Yes, they're all collected in various. Most should be easy to get except the X-Treme volumes.

    I'm so old I have a lot of these as singles. LOL

    But I know there is a trade for The Trial of Gambit and several trades for X-Treme X-Men vol 1.

    The early X-Men and 90's Uncanny X-Men are a little harder to figure out. They aren't collected as seamlessly or numerically that I've been able to tell.

    I know what you mean; I've read all of the Rogue and Gambit centered trades cover to cover!

    You'll want to look these up:
    Mutant Genesis
    Fatal Attractions
    Legion Quest
    Road to Onslaught
    Trial of Gambit
    Hunt for Xavier

    Then the X-Treme X-Men ones are self explanatory
    X-Men Legavy Salvage is the issue above
    And the Astonishing trade is called Life of X

    Happy 2020 to Mr. & Mrs. X, my current favorite 616 Marvel couple. I've shipped these two since I first watched the old X-Men Animated Series as a kid.

    You are in good company here!

    Did you all see the results on this Twitter poll?

    49% of 2146 votes! A pretty good sampling.

    I never get tired of looking at that Kris Anka piece.

    So I suppose there's an Excalibur preview coming today? *fingers crossed and teeth clenched for a good showing*
