Australian philosopher, literary critic, legal scholar, and professional writer. Based in Newcastle, NSW. My latest books are THE TYRANNY OF OPINION: CONFORMITY AND THE FUTURE OF LIBERALISM (2019) and AT THE DAWN OF A GREAT TRANSITION: THE QUESTION OF RADICAL ENHANCEMENT (2021).
If you write it, I'll buy it. (NB you should probably seek independent legal advice re the possible intellectual property implications first)
Sadly, I think my chances of doing it legally have passed me by.
Well, you could always suggest a book on the Philosophy of Supervillainy for that Wiley-Blackwell series...
I am sure that there is a fan-fic.
Don't joke, Colin. I've thought of that ... but it'd have to be a few books down the track, I think.
Alex, this image is gonna encourage a whole new generation of Magneto/Rogue/Gambit double-slash fiction ... surely.
Jenny and I had a talk about Magneto/Rogue some time back .. and she was horrified!! :)
But she's a fan of the movie continuity, not the comics continuity, so she's thinking Ian McKellen and Anna Paquin. Which does see kinda bizarre. Ian McKellen does a wonderful job as Silver Age Magneto (I totally have a man crush on McKellen!!!); but modern-day comics Magneto has been put through a rejuvenation and is now more Michael Fassbender than Ian McKellen (well, he's somewhere in between). And even Anna Paquin has grown up a l'il. :D
I wouldn't be all that surprised if something in that vein did happen, actually. Or if Rogue got with both men in quick succession, at any rate. The X-books have matured in their sexual content quite a bit in just the couple of decades I've been aware of them. Hell, not long ago there was an X-Force arc called 'Sex and Violence' - and not for symbolic reasons, either.
And meanwhile, Gambit has his own kinda-creepy-but-charismatic-older-guy, younger-woman-in-need-of-father-figure thing going on with X-23....maybe he's trying to make Rogue jealous?
It would certainly be a way of giving us the jaw-dropping ending we've been promised for X-Men Legacy #249. I can't imagine that that's what it is, though. lol
(And the image used here is, like I said, for a few issues down the track.)
