It makes me sad when I think about how many great Romy sites there were, and how few there are now, so I’m happy to help fill the gap. They’ll always be my OTP. <3

To me Rogue and Gambit will always be the ultimate in comic book romances. We are dealing with a genre that has no real “ending”, unlike television and film. As a result, this relationship has taken beating after beating in order to keep the stories fresh. My opinion is that these characters are never better than when they are together, whether it be in conflict or romance. I know many disagree with me, but that doesn’t stop the smile that forms when I open a comic book containing some "Romy" moments. Anyway, I don’t really have a question, but just wanted to request that there be no more mention of the "relationship that should not be named" on this delicious site. This is a happy place. Thanks.

My answer:

Agreed. I’ve said my piece on that particular relationship, and do not want to dwell on it. This tumblr is all about celebrating Romy, and that’s what I intend to do in the future. Let’s hope that Marvel gives us even more to celebrate. :)

Anonymous said: Hello there! I have a rather direct question to you lol: How do you feel about some of the ROMY fans who are accepting and supportive of Rogue and Mag? They say that Mags makes Rogue more mature and more true to herself as Rogue makes him calmer and nicer; also I heard some of them say "If I was them, I would go for it". I haven't been following comics for a while, so I'd like to hear your thoughts on the subject matter. Do they have a point, or not?

(I’m answering just for myself, not for anyone else in the CBR appreciation group, who may have a different opinion - Halla.)

Although I think people have a perfect right to ship whatever couple they like, I dislike Rogneto intensely, and it’s not solely because I am a Romy fan.

Firstly, I think it makes Rogue look weak and stupid. Based on Magneto’s abusive treatment of Rogue in the past (take just Uncanny X-Men #350, where he forces her to use her powers against her will and she speaks of it as a kind of rape), I find it deeply problematic that she would be attracted to him and pursue a romantic relationship with him. I know that women do return to their abusers in real life, but I’m not sure we should be idealizing a relationship based on that dynamic. I also know that some people have argued that Gambit is equally abusive, but, really, he’s never violated her in any comparable way. (Death was NOT Gambit.) 

Secondly, the Rogneto relationship always has a subtext of Magneto being the dominant party and Rogue being the submissive one. Again, to cite just one example, the recently-released cover to Legacy #274 recreates Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam, with Magneto as God and Rogue as Adam. Moreover, as someone on CBR pointed out recently, their relationship never takes place in situations where Rogue is stronger than him - she is always depowered (Savage Land), or has a weaker versions of his abilities (AoA), or just has her natural absorption abilities (now). Compare that to Romy, where Gambit and Rogue are depicted much more as equals, and where she was stronger than him for most of their relationship. 

Thirdly, I hate the idea that relationships should be based on “ennobling” the other person, to quote Magneto. You love someone for who are they are, not what you can make them. 

Lastly, have you seen the cover to Gambit #3? Why would anyone go for Magneto over THAT? :D
