X-Men Gold has been setting up a huge wedding between Colossus and Kitty Pryde for a while now. Their on-again/off-again relationship has been spread across more than a handful of comicbook pages, helping to build the anticipation for their romance to be made official for the whole world to see. Now we are finally here thanks to issue #30, and we couldn’t be happier!
Well, sort of. Without too many spoilers, let’s just say that something is said to Kitty Pryde the night before they are set to tie the knot, and she has somewhat of a change of heart right when everything is starting to look really good. She ends up bailing on Colossus at the altar just as he tries to put the ring on her finger, and the guests in attendance pretty much lose it.
Among the few who are wrapped up in their emotions following the event, Gambit is the most affected. He’s always been one to find the most opportune moment to strike, and the inspiration to hold on to what’s dear to him was definitely in the air.
In the smoothest fashion ever, Gambit decides to FINALLY make the commitment of a lifetime and propose to Rogue. It’s okay to jump up and down and scream!
