Synopsis: Spiral jumps into the fray! But whose side is she really on? Will Rogue and Gambit ever get the vacation they deserve?
What You’ll Need To Know: Rogue and Gambit have been trapped in the Mojo-Verse. Mojo knows this couple brings a lot of action and drama, so they’d be best suited for his show! Think of the ratings! However, things are not going as smoothly as planned. Even with this romantic Noir tale, ratings do not boost as Rogue ends up killing Gambit! Mojo doesn’t want a tragedy.
In This Issue: Mojo tries to take a different approach and do a fairytale romance, where Longshot makes an appearance. He was added for the appeal of a love triangle. Who doesn’t like that kind of drama? Maybe not, but it makes them talk, it keeps them invested. This fairytale, princess in a castle show may have been good for Mojo’s plan but the same outcome as Noir, Rogue accidentally kills Gambit. This is a whole different type of outcome! That, and it is slowly keeping her out of Mojo’s control. Mojo tries other genres and same thing, Gambit keeps dying! He seems to have missed the memo or her powers evolving and going crazy! Mojo tries something different, a reality show! It’s unscripted, not fantasy. All should go according to plan of no one interferes. Except a sexy, 6 armed interdimensional traveler! Spiral claims she is there to help, but she’s been a thorn in the X-Men’s side multiple times. She explains she can set them free AND help with Rogue’s new abilities. Gambit of course questions why she would do that, but she needs assistance in exchange for their freedom (even though she was partially responsible for their kidnapping). She needs Gambit to steal for her, he is one of the best thieves in the world afterall.
