Uh oh. Dazzler and Rogue have all kinds of beef, dating back to when Rogue bitch-sbaped Dazzler in her own comic book series, and later when Rogue unapologetically made out with Dazzler’s man-cake Longshot for a very good cause. It was looking like the X-Ladies buried the hatchet a few issues ago when Dazzler risked her life to cut Rogue free from a watery grave, but here we see that things are still a bit prickly when it comes to who belongs to who.
This whole freaking scene has the comedic beats of a Simpson’s episode.
Ahh the possessiveness of relationships in human society. We’re all each other’s property, and if anyone tries to stand up for their own independence, World War 3 takes place. Everything is a power struggle. A battle over boundaries where each person is on a separate side of a wall and they’re both pushing as hard as they can in opposite directions. The only way to win that game is not to play. Yes I’m divorced and lonely. But at least I’m independent!! (Uncanny X-Men #240 – Jan 1989)
