SKU: 13226 Category:


Cover to Uncanny X-Men 173! Logan and Rogue off on a solo mission…Yakuza, Silver Samurai…watch out! Her initial months with the team were rough as she was seen as a latent threat, a Brotherhood mole within the X-Men. When the team met up with Wolverine in Tokyo where he was preparing for his marriage to Mariko Yashida, he gave her a chilly reception—Wolverine having been a good friend and professional partner to Carol Danvers. However, after the rest of the team accepted Rogue, Storm and Wolverine were incapacitated by poison, and Rogue was forced to work with Wolverine in order to find the culprit. The plot was traced back to the second Viper and her lover, the Silver Samurai. Rogue nearly died during the battle by taking a prolonged laser blast from the Viper to shield Mariko, who had shown her genuine trust and kindness. Wolverine, after the battle and over Rogue’s own objections, kissed her to transfer his healing powers to her. She had gained his trust and respect for her efforts to protect his fiancée.
