Just a tiny spoiler warning if you haven't read the Siege Epilogue, Sentry: Fallen Sun. Then again, that title and cover should have a spoiler warning if you haven't read Siege #4. In Fallen Sun, we basically have a memorial service for Sentry. For some reason we see Cyclops and Rogue there. The story of Sentry is basically he was a big part of the Marvel Universe from the beginning. He was friends with loads of characters but because of the Void, Sentry used his powers to make everyone, including himself, forget about him in order to destroy the Void.
While the heroes are talking about the Sentry, Rogue breaks down and reveals something that none of us knew.
== TEASER ==
If you haven't read the issue yet, you might be wondering if this really implies that they were that intimate. If the issue stopped right there on this, it would've been fine. But the next panel pretty much clarifies the whole situation.
I think it's pretty clear what they're referring to. So along with the power of a million suns, the ability to erase everyone's memory, being able to get killed and return time and time again, Sentry also had the ability to sleep with Rogue and not have her powers put him in a coma.
I may not be the best historian when it comes to the Sentry's past but I have to wonder when this actually took place. The story was he and Reed were close friends. Reed was the best man at Sentry's wedding. When did Sentry and Rogue hook up. My impression was Bob Reynolds and Lindy would have been married early in the Marvel Universe history (as in it would've happened in the 60s or 70s, our time). Rogue isn't as old as Reed and Bob. When did they have their relationship and how old was Rogue compared to when he was married. Perhaps it's best to just not think about that, or this whole thing.
What are your thoughts on this revelation? Do you think it changes anything about Rogue? Does it change her tortured and lonely past? Does it bother you that this is something never mentioned before and is brought up here?
