Book Summary: Spiral jumps into the fray! But whose side is she really on? Will Rogue and Gambit ever get the vacation they deserve?
Book Review: Moving over Rogue, it is time for Gambit to shine in this issue!

In this issue, we pick up where the last issue has left off. Rogue has been awakened by Longshot's kiss and the pair are prepared to leave when Gambit appears. Gambit uses his powers to take out his rival and the two escape. Unfortunately Rogue's power unleashes and she kills Gambit. Of course, this angers Mojo and he makes them spin the genre wheel leading Gambit and Rogue to new genres but always the same results - Gambit dies at Rogue's hands.

Spiral goes into the next program trying to figure out exactly what is going. All the while she does this, she is also concocting a plan and she recruits Gambit for help in retrieving something outside of the studios of the real Mojoverse.

She, then, goes to Rogue and reveals that Rogue's new powers have kicked in and everytime she has a meltdown, she ends up killing Gambit. There has to be something inside Rogue like a switch that could be controlled by Rogue herself. Now Rogue is going to have to deep inside herself to figure out what it is triggering her newfound powers.

This series keeps getting great. I was thrilled to see that we are going to be learning exactly what is causing Rogue's newfound powers to manifest in the next issues. Not only that but we get a Gambit issue in this one! I don't think I have any complaints against it at this moment. I thoroughly enjoyed this one.
