I'd just like to apologise to Max, and all other Gambit fans, from the bottom of my heart. I tried to write something else, but ultimately I am an abject failure...
To be drawn in the style of an old Warner Bros Merry Melodies cartoon. You'll soon work out which one.
Cartoon Rogue is walking down the street, singing a song. In the other direction comes cartoon Ms. Marvel. Cartoon Rogue’s hair is all brown.
Rogue: Honey - ah, sugah sugah…
Rogue bumps into Ms. Marvel and there is a zap of energy as Rogue absorbs Carol’s powers and personality.
Rogue: Ahh! Shucks!
Ms. Marvel: Owwch!
Ms. Marvel lies passed out on the floor while Rogue, still bursting with energy, examines her hair in a cartoon shop window. It’s an Acme shop, of course. Rogue’s hair now has the familiar white streak in it.
Rogue: Darn! Now I need Grecian 2000 on top of everything else!
Cartoon Gambit is playing Solitaire and drinking Kool Aid through a straw in a superhero bar. Other cartoon heroes sit at different tables, but he’s drinking alone. Suddenly he’s alert… his senses are in overdrive.
Gambit: Maintenant… what eez zis?
Gambit exits the bar in a cloud of cartoon dust. Playing cards explode in the air around him.
SFX: Biff! Baff! Boff!
Gambit is out on the street with Rogue. He has her in an passionate clinch, from which Rogue is squirming to free herself.
Gambit: Ah, mon cheri, our love in zee stars is wreetten, non? I am zee mutant l’amour, zee Cajun Casanova, les amoreux de stupid trenchoat… and you, you are zee southern belle du jour, zee Mississippi Magnifique, la fille aux weird white streak in your ‘air!
Gambit: I want to keez you all over...
Gambit kisses Rogue’s cheek – she’s still struggling, with a big “eurgghhhh!” on her face.
Gambit: Mwah! Mwah! Mw—
Gambit’s face goes gaunt and blue as Rogue’s cheek sucks all the life out of him via his lips.
Gambit drops to the floor, an emaciated corpse. Rogue stands wiping at her face, ridding herself of Gambit’s foul slobber.
Rogue: Eeeeeeeukk! Stinky skunk!
Rogue: Erm… I mean…
Close on Rogue: a wicked gleam in her eyes.
Rogue: “Le steenky skunk!”
CAP: Th-th-th-th-that’s all, folks!
