How Was Rogue Able to Kiss Gambit on Their Wedding Day? And The Rest? (Mr & Mrs X #1 Spoilers)

It was the first of the comic book industry's summer weddings that weren't. Kitty Pryde and Colossus fell apart at the altar, but it was an opportunity that the slightly drunk Rogue and Gambit decided to seize. And suddenly…

But how could Rogue kiss Gambit? Don't they know that one touch of the skin and Rogue will absorb the totality of the other person's life essence? Taking their powers, their memories and their will to live? You know, just like any marriage… yeah okay, that joke belongs in another decade. As maybe did Rogue and Gambit's relationship, though it successfully pulled in fans of the nineties X-Men cartoon that so established their courting for a generation.

Anyway, the new Mr & Mrs X #1 has the answer. And it was around Rogue's neck the whole time.

A power dampener and an accessoriser, giving her a monster of a headache but allowing her to kiss her beau… and a lot more.

See, she can be… tickled as well. And it looks like having a splitting headache won't stop her being tickled on her wedding night. On honeymoon. On a satellite. So it looks like the Earth moved for both of them.
