During the 80s, Longshot was pretty much the X-Men’s team dog. Except for the fact that half of the team wanted to have sex with him. I’d say that that sounded less creepy in my head, but it didn’t. There was never a point where that wasn’t creepy. I warned you that this was going to be a weird week. I honestly don’t know what’s up with this comic. I just…whatever.
X-Men (Blue Team) and Professor X
Rogue (Anna Marie), Professor X (Charles Xavier), Cyclops (Scott Summers), Beast (Hank McCoy), Psylocke (Betsy Braddock), Gambit (Remy LeBeau) and Wolverine (James Howelett, a.k.a Logan)
The X-Men (consisting of Storm, Shadowcat, Colossus, Gambit, Rogue, Marrow, Wolverine and Nightcrawler at that time) get a little envious about the Avengers getting parades and taking all the credit while they get hated by public despite being heroes.

(And years later, Wolverine, Rogue and Storm had joined the Avengers.)

“Lord, mah hands are itching like there’s ants crawlin’ all over them. Ah’m gonna need to touch something. Real soon.”
If I had to choose one frame that captured their relationship, this would be a top contender.
Since there are many alternate reality stories in Marvel, I have some ideas for Marvel’s What If as I have read the old What If comics. There are so much of unexplored possibilities.
1. What if…Gambit was raised as an assassin instead of a thief?
2. What if….a different New Warrior survived instead of Speedball in Civil War? (Two-parter issues for having two segments of different characters in one comic and the last segment would be What if ALL the New Warriors survived by defeating Nitro. Imagine that in one segment, even the D-Lister Microbe survives as he gets secretly taken away by Apocalypse who turns him into Horseman of Pestilence as he has the power of germs)
3. What if…Rogue had died instead of Nightcrawler in Second Coming storyline?
4. What if…Wolverine had been depowered on M-Day?
5. What if…Hulk and the Warbound came to Earth when Pro-Reg heroes and Anti-Reg heroes are fighting in the middle of New York at Civil War?
6. What if…Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch joined the X-Men instead of Avengers?
7. What if…Captain America or any Avenger got the Phoenix Force instead of Cyclops, Emma Frost, Namor, Magik and Colossus in AvX?
