I've always found Kitty and Colossus relationship kind of boring. Don't get me wrong I like Kitty and Colossus, there both good characters. I've just never been interesting in there relationship. I think Joss Whedon wrote the best version of there relationship. Although I didn't see the point of reuniting them and then separating them in his series.
Rogue and Gambit will always be the best X-Men couple. They reminded of a teenage romance, with all the fears and insecurities. They also had real obstacle with Rogue not being able to touch
Pretty much the same reason why everyone loves Rogue and Gambit, Jean Grey and Cyclops and heck even Emma Frost and Cyclops. They were the first established couples in the comics and everyone loves to hold on to first time relationships. Also, most of these relationships came out during a time where relationships weren't constantly shifted back and forth (although that's a little debatable, especially with the controversy that surrounded Kitty and Colossus' relationship) and fans can just relax with these couples without worrying about them breaking up for odd reasons.
To be fair, I think Rogue and Gambit's relationship is more than just "they were first". There is a real good story there, with Remy being somewhat of a playboy in the past and despite the physical limitations due to their powers they still love each other.
I think that's a fairly powerful concept.
Not that I claim to be an expert on all things X-men love (although Remy is my favorite member :))
That's a good point! I think what made Rogue and Gambit's relationship really stand out was the fact that Rogue couldn't touch anyone because of her powers, but Gambit still loved her anyway, so that's a truly powerful relationship right there.
I think your right about Gambit and Rogue. How many guys would stick with a woman they couldn't touch. Gambit really loves Rogue and he proven that. There true love in there relationship.
Marvel just needs to reunite them and have them move forward. Let them be able to touch.
It's the same sort of reason people like Jean Grey and Cyclops together, which, to me, makes even less sense.
Wait why dont they make sense. Is this about the nonsense Morrison write in new x-men about jean having "great expectations" towards cyclops??? I mean Scott and Jean's love was so strong that he saved the whole universe. Jean was always abit outgoing while scott was the more reserved/shy one. Whats wrong with that???
Plus i think morrison was just making any excuse up, to break them up, just for shock value
Your absolutely right, Grant Morrison did make up rubbish when it came to Jean and Scott relationship. He just wanted to break them up and Scott affair with Emma made no sense at all. Grant Morrison clearly stated in a interview that he found there marriage boring and that's why he destroy it the way he did.
Then you come across those people who believe there marriage was already over and I wonder to myself, do they base that on Grant Morrison writing. He was naive and arrogant and show no understanding of there marriage.
What I like the most about Jean and Scott, is there real relationship, there a real marriage. They face many obstacles together. How many times has there relationship been tested. The Phoenix force, Maddie & Mr Sinister. Raising Cable 12 years in the future. Cyclops Merge with Apocalypse and then there Logan. There relationship has face so many challenges.
That’s what a real relationship is, it’s not about being happy or being in loved all time. It’s about facing challengers together and that’ what Jean Grey and Scott did and that’s why they are perfect for one another.
Scot t and Emma never strike me as a real couple. They haven’t really been tested as couple. The Phoenix Force was the only real threat to there relationship and it broke them up. They both betray one another and then Emma dumps Scott. That’s why they don’t belong together.
