Still no river rat?

Well, I've caught up to chapter 8 of Messiah CompleX and still no sight of Rogue. I have this theory - I've typed it up once before but Blogger promptly ate it. I'll give you the cliff notes version. (this theory will be dead by the end of the week when Ch 9 drops, but at least it's out of my system)

I suspect she's the traitor they're referring to in chapter nine. Let me tell you why. (uh possible spoilers ahead?)

...but first - background info!

Last we saw our favorite little redneck, she was still on a slab at Sinister's place, awakened briefly in an incredibly hackneyed little scene where Gambit's 'love' awakened her, (*barf*) after which she promptly went back to her coma. Prior to that she essentially had a instant death touch and the strong urge to touch people, whether it killed them or not. Also, there's the added bonus of 8 billion minds stuck in her head. (good luck digging Destiny's Diaries out of there, Sinister) So yeah, Rogue is probably a hair insane right now.

Moving on..
The X-Men seemingly left her there, and only came to get her when they thought the mutant baby was at Sinister's as well. It could easily be said that Rogue was an afterthought in that rescue. Afterwards, Wolverine and crew were all after Cable. If/when Rogue comes out of her coma, it will look as though she'd been abandoned.

In IRL - Mike Carey is Vague...
In interviews, Mike Carey keeps saying that something "major" will come involving Rogue. However, he won't say what. Last time a "major" thing happened, it was the Strain 88 Virus, followed by the Hecatomb. So to Mike, "major" = "major disaster". (that man makes me cranky...)

Add insane Rogue, urge to kill, previous criminal behavior, stupid loyalty to Gambit, (how many times has he tried to kill her? Three?) and a dash of abandonment issues. To me, that equals traitor.

Chun Li : Now 50% less Chinese

In the Dec. 22nd post, Majoria's News reported that Kristin Kreuk will be playing Chun Li in the upcoming movie Street Fighter: Legend of Chun Li. She's half Dutch and half Chinese (although her mother was born in Indonesia - imdb=good info) She plays Lana Lane in Smallville. (I'm the one geek on the planet that doesn't watch that show)

I don't suppose I could complain too much about the casting, but I still find it hard to believe that there isn't one single Chinese girl on the friggin planet that could play Chun Li in the upcoming movie. has some interesting trivia that may give some insight as to why she was cast:
  • Growing up she did gymnastics, swimming, martial arts, and theater (in high school).
  • Has a purple belt in karate.
  • Does not smoke.

So there you have it - hope the script is really good. Gilgamesh at thinks Kristin will be faboo, and who am I to argue with the guy who runs the best Chun Li shrine on the internet(s)?


Did your lazy family give you cash this holiday season? Well - here's a good way to spend it! has King of Fighters XI up for 12.99! Good lawd, that's cheap. It retails at brick and mortar stores for 19.99. If you're feeling sassy, you can get this game AND NeoGeo Battle Coliseum for 27.98

30 bucks for some fantastic 2D goodness. Cheap and delicious.
(no, I have no amazon referral account so I get nothing out of referring you that way)
