Rogue + Gambit Poster by Jim Balent X Men RARE! LAST ONE!


SKU: 12399 Category:


Rogue and Gambit have had one of the longest (and more turbulent) relationships in all of X-Men history. (Kind of hard to beat Cyclops and Jean.) This rare poster is by artist Jim Balent! Rogue and Gambit were immediately attracted to each other, but the development of their relationship was slow and rocky, partly as a result of her inability to control her powers and partly as a result of long-term issues, including secrecy and dishonesty, with previous relationships on Gambit’s part. Rogue learned that she had inherited a mansion in New Orleans from Destiny, as well as a sizable fortune, and the X-Treme X-Men team retired there to recuperate. Rogue soon left the team with Gambit, since they both emerged powerless from their ordeals and wanted to explore their relationship further. As of this writing Rogue has joined the Uncanny Avengers, with Gambit set to join All-New X-Factor so the final chapter in their relationship has yet to be written…
