  1. The only reason to invite nazis is to point Arcade at them, let him do his thing to them. If that didn’t happen, then I’ve got nothing.

  2. Hearing the wedding march as the titles, I’m trying to think when the next chance to bust it out might be? Is… is the next big X-Wedding… Rogue and Gambit?

        1. I *might* be remembering this wrong, but I don’t think the wedding was covered in any actual X-books at the time? The whole storyline played out in Hudlin’s Black Panther.

      1. Excellent point. I wasn’t reading at the time and forget them. Which is horrible because I loved them in Leah Williams’ X-Factor run.
