Rogue to Drown in Hobo @#$% in Uncanny Avengers #14

Rogue to Drown in Hobo @#$% in Uncanny Avengers #14

The cover indicates that Rick Remender is not through using Rogue as a proxy for readers who dared complain about his metaphors.

When readers complained that mutant leader Havok's comments in Uncanny Avengers #5, which urged mutants to stop identifying as mutants, preached assimilation, series writer Rick Remender was quick to tell those readers to drown in hobo piss. This proved unsatisfying for Remender though, because, a few months later, in Uncanny Avengers #9, Remender put the words and spirit of his online detractors into the mouth of team member Rogue and then had the Scarlet Witch spend several pages berating Rogue (the readers) about how Havok (Remender) was right. Unfortunately, Remender's knack for sticking his foot in his mouth reared its ugly head once again when Remender mistakenly referred to the Witch's Romani heritage as a "religion," prompting more fan outrage.

Well, it looks like Remender is going to take another swing at the conflict in Uncanny Avengers #14, as the cover shows a menacing Rogue, brandishing Wolverine's bone claws of liberal wrongness, as a heroic Scarlet Witch wields the chaos magic of righteous vindication. In the article on Marvel puppet site ComicBookResources, new series artist Steve McNiven promises that the issue will feature a lot of brutality, and he's not just referring to Remender's massacre of the concept of allegory.

So how will Remender offend entire swaths of readers this time? What clumsy, ham-fisted metaphors will he use to deliver embarrassingly juvenile commentary on serious, real world issues? Will Captain America come out as a George Zimmerman supporter? Will the Apocalypse Twins get married in an offensive comparison of gay marriage and incest? Will Remender take his metaphor to the extreme and have Wanda literally drown Rogue in a pool of hobo piss? We'll have to find out in Uncanny Avengers #14.
