KITTY PRYDE SENDS ROGUE AND GAMBIT ON A MISSION TO PARAISO WHERE MUTANT COUPLES ARE DISAPPEARING

In ‘Rogue & Gambit’ (2018) #1, Rogue and Gambit are sent by Kitty Pryde to Paraiso as an X-Men couple. In summary, mutant couples are disappearing at Paraiso and Rogue and Gambit are sent to investigate. At the beginning of the issue, Rogue is training with the X-Men student body in the Danger Room. Gambit has been called in by Kitty and is sent into the Danger Room by Ororo.

During the training, Gambit saves Rogue from a Sentinel pinning her to the ground. At the end, Gambit and Rogue attempt to reconcile their past feelings. Meanwhile, the X-man is called in by Headmistress Kitty Pryde. She finds out about the mutant disappearances in Paraiso and that Gambit has been called in by Kitty in order to send them both into therapy retreat as an undercover X-Men couple.

IT’S A RING OF FIRE AND TELEPATHY IS AGAIN MANIPULATING ROGUE’S AND GAMBIT’S FEELINGS

In ‘Rogue & Gambit’ (2018) #2, telepathy is again manipulating Rogue’s and Gambit’s feelings for each other. After brain screenings, Anna and Remy have couple therapy with Dr. Grand. Interestingly, they reveal different accounts of their first encounter. Strangely, Rogue only remembers their first encounter as the result of the Shadow King’s telepathic manipulation on Muir Island. Doubtfully, she remembers her feelings for Gambit as the result of the Shadow King’s manipulation and as not being real.

Gambit reveals their first encounter was actually a fight on Muir Island manipulated by the Shadow King. Though Gambit won the fight, it was love at first sight and ended in a kiss. At night, the X-Men couple goes to investigate the Paraiso Island Hospital. They stalk the air ducts and infiltrate the lab. There, they are greeted by a super-powered hit squad and engage them. Accidentally, they find a lab with golems being experimented upon.

IN THE FINAL ISSUE, IT’S ROGUE AND GAMBIT VS THE GOLEMS AND LAVISH

In ‘Rogue & Gambit’ (2018) #4, the X-Men couple uncovers the truth about Paraiso Island. As a matter of fact, a golem supervillain is attracting mutant couples to the island in order to steal their super powers and their memories and create clones or golems of them. Rogue and Gambit realize the reason they have been loving each other is because Lavish has been feeding on their bad memories. With their super powers fading, Rogue and Gambit must fight Rogue and Gambit golems.

In ‘Rogue & Gambit’ (2018) #5, Rogue finds out they can both exchange their super powers and get their memories back at a cost. Indeed, they must live with the memories of the pain they have caused each other. Thus, Rogue decides to absorb the powers and the memories of all the golems and return them to all the other couples on Paraiso Island. In the end, even though their feelings have been tampered with, Rogue decides to be re-united with Gambit. Finally, the X-Men couple shares a kiss.
