I think I know what you’re referring to because I’ve seen it quoted and linked to (a romy site and even a gambit one so I never really took it seriously) in many arguments about the pairing. Although the links never revealed from where the source originally came from. No mentions of if it came from a Wizard magazine interview, conventions, Chris Claremont’s forum posts, nada. So I can’t really help you there.
I did, however, find this http://geoffklock.blogspot.com/2010/06/uncanny-274.html and it speaks a little bit about CC’s thoughts on the relationship but again nothing solid. The comments at the bottom of the page are pretty insightful, tho.
From what I remember of the Quotes/Interview with CC regarding Rogue/Magneto is that he never intended to write them as a romantic couple in the first place. I don’t remember anything about him hating the pairing (he very well could, I just don’t recall every seeing it mentioned) or anything like that.
If anyone knows of this interview or any other interviews/posts/whatever with Chris Claremont speaking on the topic of Rogue/Magneto/Savage Land then feel free to submit it here http://fuckyeahrogueandmagnus.tumblr.com/submit
Very well written. I agree with everything you wrote. I also truly hope that she and Gambit don’t get back together anytime soon, but it will probably be back in the cards. Here’s hoping she keeps her powers under control, but UA is making me worry
The powerset reset in UA is a pretty damn ham-fisted way to give Rogue super strength and flight again. Especially if it’s truly at the cost of her ability to control her absorption powers. But time will tell I suppose.
I don’t know how likely a romy retread is at this point. They’re both in different books and are going in two different directions. And even if they were in the same book there’s no guarantee that they would be thrown back together again just because. It would honestly just be hella lazy writing if they were just thrown back together with no discussion or acknowledgement of why they truly broke up in the first place.
I would really love if Rogue just stayed single for a while. The focus could be switch from her romantic relationships to her other personal ones like friends, siblings, her mothers/father, her former students, whatever. I’ve really really missed those relationships for Rogue.
