    Anyone read Captain Marvel: The End?

    spoilers:
    We get a brief appearance by Rogue and Gambit's hypothetical future daughter, Irene. She has Rogue's white streak & absorption powers & Remy's eyes. Yeah, the name and the detail about Remy's eyes melted me. We don't get to learn much else. It's set in a very bleak future. Sweet end for Carol and fun to see all these future kids. Feels even more bittersweet knowing we may never actually see a possibility of her or some other future kiddo now though.

    Yes, I admit that I look for your comments and trust your suggestions on this site because I usually am aligned with your sentiments. Your endorsement was one of the reasons I bought the Asmus/Mann trade when it came out last year – SO GOOD!

    It's sad. I REALLY WANTED TO LOVE EXCALIBUR too. Honestly, I actually quite hate Apocalypse, but have been trying to open my heart and try to understand all this magic stuff. It’s just not coming together for me. It’s maddening…And, like you, character loyalty to Rogue and Gambit is the only reason I’m staying for now. But once again, if Excalibur pulls some really out of character or awful story developments – I just can’t.

    And because of your post, I’ve downloaded it and will now pick up the hard copy. UGH! I really enjoyed the book in it’s entirety and will now have to buy the whole series! I was trying to avoid it…because once I’m hooked, I buy everything. It’s an addiction.
    spoilers:
    Really enjoyed seeing Gambit and Rogue’s daughter. Such a short conversation, but it got me too. Mind you – Dani Cage really touched me. I read all Jessica Jones stories KT wrote and loved these call backs.
    end of spoilers

    Perhaps I should drop Excalibur soon and then just follow other titles? But I just can’t imagine doing that. How can I support comics while not reading the stories with my favs? If I drop Excalibur, I’ll drop everything all together. I’ve done it once…it was really hard to do…but I can do it again.

    Anyways…since I mentioned my back issue reading…I did manage to score some X-Factor issues with Gambit on the team. What was other people’s take on that version of Gambit? There are some moments that didn’t really jive with me…however…I will admit I’d take that version of Gambit over Excalibur Gambit any day.

    Awwww, I'm touched.

    Yeah, the Captain Marvel was most enjoyable if you've been following KTs other works. Lots of cameos that connected to other books. So bittersweet.

    Oh All-New X-Factor ... such a mixed bag. I liked seeing Remy with that more sarcastic side of his personality. We also get the cats and some truly beautiful art. Peter David writes some truly good humor. Some of the scenes with Danger and Quicksilver were especially hilarious. But we also get a lot of "screw up" Remy moments - caught by Wolverine thieving, sleeping with a married woman, used as naked bait by the villain, kissing Polaris for no apparent reason ... and then kissing Danger to "fix" her. All the non-consensual kissing is very circa 1990s and not in a good way. Still, worth the read.

    Duggan’s started his run writing that rogue/torch had been a thing off panel and they were now broken up. He promptly went forward with Deadpool. Immediately after Duggan left, Zub started pushing torch, like you said literally two issues after Deadpool lol. So whether you think Duggan or Zub are primarily ‘at fault,’ is a matter of personal opinion.

    Looks like they will be available may 2020
    I had thrown these in my Amazon cart. Forgot to preorder. Went on there this morning to do so and my husband already ordered them for me. He’s the best!!

    I still want the glow in the dark Gambit and the other Rogue though I forget which outlets to get them from.

    Oh yeah, that whole line looks really cool. It's too bad they're not doing Gambit (yet, at least)

    Too cute! Your hubby is definitely a keeper. I've coerced my sister into getting these for me for my birthday. Yes, all four. She's a Funko Pop fanatic so I think I'm all set! Can't wait.

    Isn’t he though!?

    So is your sis, lol

    I’ve preordered glow in the dark Gambit (thanks again Sandman’s)

    Now I need HT Rogue

    I’ll have the 2 normal Funkos to bring to work and the other two to keep at home.

    It’s perfect.

    Also I’m in love with the idea of KT’s Romy daughter “Irene” with her white streak and her father’s eyes. Gah! I miss KT soooooo much.

    Meanwhile I’m all

    No problem!

    And I love that too. I get why Mystique gets so much recognition as Rogue's parent, but it's nice to see Destiny get it as well

    If/when they bring Destiny back ... because we KNOW Raven is gonna do whatever it takes to make that happen, rules or no ... it would be great to see Rogue have some interaction with them. That bit between Rogue and Destiny during Legacy was so touching. Also Raven and Remy sniping each other is completely on brand, but somehow I picture Irene as liking him though?

    I could totally see that. It would be a really fun dynamic to see, especially with him and Mystique sniping at each other. Maybe she sees something in his future that she likes? Idk haha In my fan fic I'm working on I have plans to make Destiny a prominent character and am excited for her and Remy to meet for those reasons.

    I would love to see this happen. And hey, if they want to make me extra happy, have KT write it.
