Mr. and Mrs. X #9 Introduces Another Secret X-Men Child (SPOILERS)

Mr. and Mrs. X is less than 10 issues old, but the series has already introduced one child of famous mutants into the X-mythos. The book’s first storyline, featuring Rogue and Gambit honeymooning in space after their surprise wedding in X-Men Gold, saw the introduction of Xandra, the genetically-engineered child of Professor Xavier and Lilandra Nermani. And now in, Mr. and Mrs. X #9, we get the first appearance of another X-child.

The issue begins with Gambit waxing philosophical…

…and exhibiting his trademark humility, of course!

Gambit has been sent by Spiral to retrieve a mysterious object from the Mojoverse while Spiral helps Rogue overcome her power issues. Spiral wouldn’t tell Gambit what it was she wanted him to steal, but it looks like we learn the answer in next week’s issue. And now that we see it, it makes sense why Spiral was so secretive about it.

Who else will be revealed to have a secret child before this series ends?!

Mr. and Mrs. X #9 hits stores next Wednesday.

Mr. and Mrs. X #9
(W) Kelly Thompson (A) Oscar Bazaldua (CA) Terry Dodson
• Gambit must use all his thieving skills to steal a precious object.
• Spiral must single-handedly (or is that multi-handedly?) fight off Mojo’s minions.
• And Rogue is on a mental trip reliving all her defining mutant memories. Not a great time for self-reflection, Rogue!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
