Uncanny X-Men 348 - Lobdell & Madureira
With the long overdue conclusion to OZT happening in the sister book, Uncanny concentrates on the trial of Gambit as Nanny turns vicious.
Meanwhile, Deathbird psins some lies to the comatose Bishop for reasons all her own.
Whoa, we're dealing with a psycho here methinks.
Rogue's powers are out of control and she starts channeling thoughts and emotions of people she's touched in the past.
So Joseph is finally accepting that he was once Magneto.
Spat says Gambit wouldn't believe who hired her. That rules out Sinister surely?
Is Rigue about to learn Remy's dirty little secret?
This scene sure doesn't bode well for the future.
Uncanny X-Men 349 - Lobdell & Bachelo
We open with that standard Lobdell staple, recap via character monologue.
Don't get too mushy Rogue, trouble is a brewing.
The enigmatic stranger is still wandering around but he gets bum rushed by Psylocke.
A bit of discrimination there from Psylocke. What's wrong with the name Maggot?
Rogue starts getting flashes of Gambit's past.
Advert for Marvel Imports. How long did that imprint last. Not long would be my guess.
Friend or foe?
Nanny get nasty.
Big revelations promised for the next issue.
Uncanny X-Men 350 - Lobdell/Seagle & Madureira/Smith
Nice gatefold covers with shinny bits. I'm a sucker for a gimmick cover.
Flashback to a scene with Gambit cutting a sinister deal with, well, Mr Sinister.
Hank fears Joseph is slowly changing back into his Magneto persona.
Jeez, Warren wastes no time in getting jealous. Pretty boys eh.
Good job Rogue recalls that 'seventh sense' power.
Boom! He's here, but who is he?
Are you kidding me? Erik the Red?
And somehow Angel, Psylocke and Maggot got transported to Antarctica to be where the others are.
This dude means business.
Angel doesn't seem interested in hearing Gambit's defence.
So in fact Gambit didn't really know what was going to happen that night and he even tried to stop it.
Too little too late as far as Rogue is concerned.
That helmet looks familiar.
Well, what to say about all that. I can't help but feel that Gambit's history with Sinister and the Marauders is all a little, 'meh, so what.' and what the hell was all that Erik the Red/Magneto nonsense?
