The 16 Most SCANDALOUS X-Men Relationships | CBR
She is a member of the X-Men and the girlfriend of Iceman. After discovering that she was a mutant, Rogue had an Logan asks Magneto why does he want him, and Magneto answers that it's not him he wants. Logan is. Rogue is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel . She wished she "did not have to cover up so much around folks" to protect . Rogue and Magneto join forces with Ka-zar and Nick Fury to battle Zaladane, The development of Rogue and Gambit's relationship is slow and rocky. this always struck me as the most random pairing. It's not that I don't like the relationship, it's just that it never would have occurred to me.
Magnus has shown multiple emotional disorders: Bi-Polar disorder, survivors guilt, control issues, etc, but not schizophrenia. When Magda abandoned her children and walked out in the snow to die, she was acting irrrationally, she was not acting in a sane manner.
If Magneto was on her trail, wouldn't it make sense that he would therefore come across the twins before he found her? And indeed, that is how he discovered his relationship to the twins. It is also ironic that while she fled from her own husband because he had become "a monster", she seemed to have no issues with having a talking cow-woman, Bova, help her give birth.
It is possible that Wanda inherited schizophrenia from her mother. At the time of Anya's death, Magda would have been entering the early age range for schizophrenia to kick in. Seeing her daughter burn to death and her husband slaughter hundreds of people through mysterious means could easily have pushed a person genetically predisposed into a psychotic episode.
She had a "Nietzsche moment". Which makes that event even more tragic, as Magnus would probably have not recognized the early warning signs as his wife having a mental disease.
Rogue and Magneto's Relationship in 2 Panels.. The One That Got Away.. : xmen
To him, her rejection was a conscious, if irrational, decision on her part. When in fact, she may have had no choice. It is possible that Magnus has gotten angry at Magda for what she did to him as he was searching for her off panel, but given his decades-long attachment to her memory, it is unlikely.
In X-Men Unlimited 2 he visited the grave marker that he had set up for Magda on Wundergore and wept over it. When Magneto became ruler of Genosha, he named the central plaza in Hammer Bay after her. That night is just as important in his mind as the Holocaust, and I believe it was the catalyst for Magnus' alienation from humanity. She is part of the core of his anti-human philosophy.
And it would be about time. Forty-plus years after she hurt him so badly, Magnus may at last be getting over her. This determination she playfully applied towards seducing Magnus. However, Magnus was still hung up on Magda and on their first date, he broke off the beginnings of physical intimacy in order to confess that he was still thinking of his wife and how she had hurt him.
She would be briefly mentioned again in Uncanny X-Menwhen memories of her murder are forced out of Magnus during a power transfer process. While he may not have loved her, he obviously cared about her. It is too bad Isabelle died so suddenly. Her intelligence, self confidence, and resolve not to be cowed by Magnus' tragic angsting would have made her a good match for such an overbearing personality like his. Though whether he was ready for a relationship while still mourning his wife is highly questionable.
Astra A retconned addition to the Brotherhood, Astra is a dark haired galactic-scale teleporter who first appeared during the Magneto War in which it was revealed that she created Joseph in order to exact revenge on Magneto. Exactly why she was exacting revenge on him was not made entirely clear, though she indicated that at least part of her resentment stemmed from the fact that Magneto had romantically rejected her. To watch a man whom I had loathed and loved, respected and feared, for so long, reduced to tearing down a ceiling on his opponents and fleeing.
Toad would see the two arguing as he bounced back in time to the early days of the Brotherhood in X-Men Forever 4, by what caused the final break has not been shown. Astra is Magneto's opposite in all the worst ways: She is completely amoral and what she does she does for her own personal gain, not for any higher calling. In fact, she repeatedly says that Magneto's political goals "bore" her.
While she acts very much the "Queen Bee", she is not a leader. She is mean-spirited, witty with a very modern sarcastic pop-culture twist, and has as much depth as an oil slick. She is also not extremely intelligent. While she is not stupid, her advanced technology is only what she has stolen from aliens and divined how to use on her own, meaning her knowledge of her own equipment is often incomplete.
Magneto's rejection of Astra shows that he has taste and some romantic common sense. However her decades long obsession with ruining him indicates an going conflict that can be mined for many stories.

Both Magneto and Jean handle massive amounts of power that threaten to overwhelm them and drive them mad. Both characters had gone through and lived with death. Both characters have lost their entire family at the hands of others. Both have adult children they had no hand in raising. Both Magneto and Jean have been abandoned by the love of their lives.
Now if she could just get over hating him for her entire adolescence and adult life. And no wonder, he's a super villain and she's a ninny. But this incident is very revealing as to what Magnus' approach to women and sex is like. He assumed that they had a commitment and was shocked and angered to discover Janet's casual attitude towards what they had shared not that the bio-sting she used in that moment helped. Magnus is not a "love 'em and leave 'em" type.
If his approach to women is usually like that, he would be far better off sitting back and letting women throw themselves at him. So this may be part of how Magnus approaches women he is attracted to. It is not obnoxious, just a little awkward and anachronistic feeling in a modern feminism-jaded era.
She saw him sink a Russian nuclear submarine and create volcanoes. She also heard his manifesto and joined the X-Men in the fight to defeat him.
Magneto fell out of orbit into the Atlantic where he was rescued by Lee from literally being shark bait in Uncanny X-Men Lee helped Magneto through his recovery while they hid on the same island she met him on New Mutants Vol.
Despite friction, at one point they literally fell in bed together New Mutants Vol 1 During the delivery, Mystique turned into her blue self and is chased out of town. Distraught after Azazel abandons her with a newborn, Mystique thought it would be best to throw little Nightcrawler off a cliff. Thankfully, he was teleported to safety, but it shows readers how ridiculously out of character Mystique truly was. Both characters are damaged and broken people, with troubled and mysterious pasts, but together they always seem to click.
Then through the years, these two have been together, then apart, then together, then apart. The main reason that Gambit and Rogue grace this list is the fact that these two characters are bad for each other. Rogue and Gambit being a couple creates drama and scandal.
If they would be able to leave each other alone, they could have become greater heroes. Look at the modern Rogue. All these two did for each other was drag everyone else into their drama. For years, Storm and Wolverine have been flirtatious.
Sparks flew and for once, these two X-Men were given a chance at love. Some might say that this is scandalous because Storm was coming out of a relationship and could have used Logan as a rebound.
One of the most classic love stories in the history of Marvel is between Scarlet Witch and Vision. Madison Jeffries is a mutant with the ability to control plastic and glass. Mystique goes into hiding, taking the identity of the senator's wife Mallory Brickman, using her husband's influence to set the FBI on Sabretooth.
She prevents Rogue from giving up her mutant powers and continues her investigation of the U. Government over her son's death, leading to her aiding Toad and his most recent incarnation of the Brotherhood of Mutants on a mission to raid a government base. The mission fails thanks to Machine Manwho fights the Brotherhood and forces the team to flee.
Mystique flees to Europe. While taking the form of a blonde haired woman, Mystique is confronted by a famous photographer who proposes to make her a big fashion model. Using her money, Mystique moves back to New York and into an expensive penthouse apartment. There, Skrulls staying in a nearby building frame Mystique for the murder of a Japanese diplomat.
With help from Shadowcat and Rogue, Mystique is cleared and leaves town. Before she leaves, Shadowcat finds one of Destiny's diariesleft there by Destiny herself before she died. Government acts on their intelligence regarding Mystique, and destroys all of the alternate identities that she established over the years and confiscate the money she and Destiny had hidden away.
The loss of her powers and her freedom causes her to lash out at everyone around her. Rogue has no sympathy for Mystique's plight. The relationship sours when Rogue refuses to tell Mystique that the X-Men are going to fight the High Evolutionarywho was responsible for depowering all mutants, in order to restore everyone's powers.
The X-Men defeat the High Evolutionary and restore everyone's powers, allowing Mystique to escape jail. Raven finds that she is destined to be part of a great time paradox, where she finds herself with a time delay weapon, which she is about to program to kill Graydon.
After some deliberation, she decides to activate the weapon to kill Graydon. Mystique's sanity is further damaged by the revelation that Destiny was one of the founding members of the anti-mutant conspiracy Mystique had dedicated countless years to fighting, and had willfully withheld medical treatment to mutant children that would have resulted in them not growing up deformed due to their mutations.
She reforms the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants for another assassination attempt on Senator Kelly, and kidnaps Moira MacTaggert and impersonates her in order to access her research on the Legacy Virus. Mystique uses samples of the Legacy Virus to create a biological weapon that would infect humans and not mutants, and develops a cure for the Legacy Virus. Mystique blows up MacTaggert's research facility, fatally injuring the doctor.
Mystique then shoots Moira's foster daughter Wolfsbane with a prototype of Forge's neutralizer gun, depowering her. The X-Men confront Mystique and she is seriously wounded. She tells the X-Men that Destiny had predicted a dark future for mutant-kind, and that the future Destiny foretold kept on unfolding despite all that Mystique had done to prevent it. She believes that the only way to save them is to eradicate all humans.
She allies herself with Martinique Jason in an attempt to wrest control of the X-Corps from its founder, Banshee. Outfitted with a device that gives her the ability to generate an electrical charge, Mystique creates the identity of a supervillain named Surge and joins the X-Corps. While Jason mind-controls the other members of the organization, Mystique brings Banshee's organization down and slits his throat, leaving him in critical condition. Xavier poses as Magneto to rescue Mystique from the Department of Homeland Security and from execution at the hands of Johny Kitano, Special Magistrate for Homo Superior crimes against humanity, and a mutant himself.
As long as Mystique completes the missions without killing anybody, Xavier, working with Forge, keeps her safe from the authorities, who are out to execute her. One of Xavier's enemies, the Quiet Man, who is actually Prudence Leighton inhabiting the body of her assassin,  contacts Mystique and offers to give her an interference transmitter which would keep her safe from the authorities if she kills Xavier. Creating a plan that would free her from both men, Mystique pretends to try killing Xavier while secretly working with the mutant thief Fantomexafter alerting Forge to stop her at the last moment.
Her plan is to have the Quiet Man see this and believe that she really has attempted to kill Xavier and is still working for him. The other X-Men believe that Mystique has tried killing Xavier and seek her out. Distraught with rage, she attacks her foster mother. Mystique escapes by blowing up the house and going through the window, changing her form to shield her fall. After a battle, Mystique kills the Quiet Man, saves her former field-handler Shortpackand discovers the Quiet Man's interference transmitter was a fake.
She tries to steal Forge's interference transmitter but is caught. After some angry words, he smashes it and tells her he never wants to see her again. The two share a sad goodbye kiss and Mystique leaves. After Mystique is gone, Forge realizes that she had already switched his transmitter for the fake one.
Mystique ultimately reveals herself to him, telling him that she is trying to relieve the tension between him and Rogue because of the two being unable to touch due to her ability to absorb someone's essence upon skin-to-skin contact.
Mystique then metamorphoses into Rogue and tells Gambit that he would not be cheating on Rogue if he had sex with her in Rogue's form. Mystique tells them that she had been lonely and wants to join the X-Men. Mystique uses Rogue's doubts about what happened between her and Gambit to sow further discord in Rogue's relationship with Gambit.
Nightcrawler asks her to leave for a while regardless of the vote, saying that he needs more time adjusting to the idea of her being a member. Mystique agrees and leaves. Both have been crucial in the downfall of Apocalypse. Mystique alerts the X-Men, who come to treat Rogue's illness, that there are intruders in the area. Only after Lady Mastermind drops her illusions do the X-Men realize that it is an all-out attack, and that both Lady Mastermind and Omega Sentinel the latter being possessed by Malice have defected sides.
During the Marauders' initial ambush, Mystique prevents Scalphunter from shooting Rogue. She then reveals herself as a traitor as well, shoots her adopted daughter, and orders the remaining Marauders to kill the X-Men. Mystique remains with the Marauders during the hunt for the first new mutant baby, but is revealed to have murdered Mister Sinister in a plot involving the baby and Rogue's killing touch.
She also appears to be working with Gambit, who, like her, has ulterior motives to want to betray Mister Sinister. When Sinister approaches Mystique as she is with the comatose Rogue, Mystique shoves Sinister onto Rogue, killing him through fatal skin-to-skin contact.
Then, in keeping with the words of the Destiny Diaries, she touches the baby's face to Rogue's. The baby's touch purges her of the Strain 88 virus and all the residual psyches she had absorbed over her life, including Hecatomb.
Rogue is sickened by Mystique's manipulations, and leaves. Wolverine tracks Mystique to the Middle East and then into Afghanistan. She sets off a bomb inside of Bobby's Blackbird before shooting him and kicking him out of the plane.
Hospital staff try to get to Iceman, but they are held back by Mystique while Iceman expels the toxin from his system.
