I admit it, anything from Grant Morrison onwards just switches me off. Hundreds of mutants to thinks about, secondary mutations, decimation, Xorn etc - yawn.

Rogue and Gambit appeals to me, due to the focus on two classic X-Men. I'm more interested in the individual character characterisation that the relationship.

Whilst the comic does show this as a major part of the comic (as you would expect), it is still a nod back to the 90s storyline.

I'm going to follow it, as a nostalgic nod. Not sure how it is going to pan out, as the threat is still not clear. I'd give it a B-.

On a tangent - Is it my overly active imagination, inventing things that never happened, or was there actually a stage back in the day when Rogue got herself some arm tattoo's...?
