Ultimate X-Men #13 (2002)
Gambit later began losing control of his powers, charging objects unintentionally. The Von Struckers, mutant capitalists who owned Fenris International, fixed his powers in return for his services as a corporate spy. Wishing to recruit the X-Men Rogue, they sent Gambit to kidnap her from Coney Island fairground. After battling her fellow X-Men (notably blowing most of Wolverine's face off), Gambit delivered Rogue to the von Struckers' penthouse, where she stole a kiss from him, thus absorbing his powers and witnessing glimpses of his brutal past. The von Struckers gave her a special suit to control her powers, but she still rejected their job offer. When the von Struckers refused to accept this, Gambit angrily backed her up. ]Working together, Rogue and Gambit overcame the von Struckers and fought their way out through Fenris' Wolfpack guards. They were confronted at the building exit by Wolverine, eager for a rematch, but Rogue stopped the fight before Gambit was killed. The other X-Men had also come to rescue her, but Rogue explained that she had decided to remain with Gambit, and the pair departed.Juggernaut, looking for Rogue, challenged them outside the Fenris Resort and Casino. Gambit battled him, eventually bringing a construction site down on both their heads. Rogue dug the dying Gambit out, giving him a final kiss as his last request, absorbing his powers and memories; unlike Rogue's normal transfers, this one seems to be permanent. Though Gambit is dead, his spirit lives on inside of Rogue.
