Everyone knows that Shadow King wants to take over Storm and/or make her his slave. But for me it seemed like the same kind of relationship between Emma and Kitty (but more extreme). With the Professor it was more of a bully who got beat by someone weaker (its Shadow King's thoughts, not mine), the same with Jean and Bettsy.
But with Rogue it is different he manipulated the people around her, but not her directly. Something that usually goes against his character. But why?
With Storm it makes sense, she can control the weather. But with Rogue, though strong, people have been immune to her touch. So what can he gain from having her?
In the past he has offered people great things, but the gifts were never with power. For Rogue he offered her to be his Queen. He even gives her his name. something that only people who have some type of love for the other (no matter how bazaar it is).
So what are his true feelings of her? Does he have some sort of loving feelings towards her? What happened in the bathroom? is there a Shadow King Jr. running around the Marvel universe?How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?
