    C'mon she should bring in the UA. Granted some of her personality, here, brought back some of the 90's fondness - even the topical comparison to kissing Deadpool was very funny. (Although, why ignore the Johnny Storm fling thing?) And then...

I would guess they only referred to Deadpool because the thing with him is over since Secret Empire. Mentioning Johnny might remind readers that he and Rogue have actually grown much closer again in recent issues, most notably UA (vol. 3) #27-30. And that they actually have a nice, sane and non-overwrought together.

    Say what?! As much as her renewed power problem is a welcome reveal - it was TERRIBLE EXPOSITION and inorganic development too.

It's old news - Rogue lost control over her power again (groan) after absorbing Wonder Man in UA vol. 1 #5 (during Remender's abysmal run).

In UA vol. 3 #28, on the second page, Rogue puts her bare hand on Johnny's naked shoulder for a full three panels without absorbing him, but apparently neither of them notices. Could it be that Rogue has regained her control over her power now that Wonder Man no longer is inside her, only she (and the others) failed to realize it?
