X-Men: The Last Stand, Rogue/Bobby/Kitty Thoughts

So I finally got around to watching X-Men: The Last Stand. It's not a great movie, and I was pretty well-spoiled, so not much to write home about. But I did have thoughts on the Rogue/Bobby/Kitty love triangle.

Which is this: If Rogue thinks the cure is going to save her relationship with Bobby, she's mistaken. Bobby's sort of flirtation with Kitty doesn't come across as a reaction to not being able to touch Rogue. It comes across was Bobby wanting two girlfriends, and not being particular concerned about how Rogue feels about that. That's not going to change just because he can touch Rogue now. Rogue has lots of legitimate reasons for taking the cure, but I don't think it will make Bobby a better boyfriend.
