There were a few romances in the Uncanny X-Men series from the vanilla romance of Scott Summers and Jean Grey, to the mysterious love story between Havok and Polaris, and the drawn out love triangle between Wolverine and Jean. But the one romance that constantly tortured me with comic covers and plot teasers was the love story between Gambit, the card throwing Cajun, and Rogue, the Southern belle with the unfortunate power to hurt anyone who ever gets too close to her.
Gambit was a man who wanted what he could not have. Rogue would absorb the powers and psychic energy of anyone she touched without a glove. Although they were both very careful with this rule, it felt as if Gambit did not mind having Rogue absorb his power.
They both came from similar backgrounds and regions of the world, but they both came from non-traditional family units with Gambit raised by thieves and Rogue raised by a shapeshifter.
Rogue was great at quick jabs and sending the message that she was not very happy with Gambit. In turn, Gambit read her spicy comments as very positive and used her words in order to flirt back.
There was always an episode or two that entertained the idea of the two characters’ interactions if they lost all their powers. This allowed Rogue to see what it was like to interact normally with Gambit.
It turns out that Gambit and Rogue were married last year in a surprise wedding after more than thirty years of being friends.
