Title: Gambit Watch
Post by: Nekobaghira on July 09, 2015, 09:32:25 PM
We know he'll be the Collector in Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde -

While I know we had complied some stuff - he wasn't really listed in much.  And since I've snafu'd .. doing the best I can with appearances.

Hold up... that might not be Gambit. Just because he looks like Gambit, dresses like Gambit, talks like Gambit, says he's Gambit, doesnt mean he's Gambit... could be some completely original character from China studying under Cosmic Daredevil.

Post by: Nekobaghira on July 13, 2015, 01:58:47 PM
heh heh, well it could be some guy from china without a green card to be in the states to study under Daredevil, but .... we do know that the writer did confirm it is Gambit.  LOL

I think this time ... we are okay.  July 22nd is when Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde #1 will be out.

Can you believe it, they're giving Squirrel Girl a new #1.  The book is at cut off or lower and she gets another shot.  *sigh*

I didnt like how he said Gambit's powers were "to charge objects with kinetic energy and throw them"... Throwing things has nothing to do with his powers. It's like saying Wolverine has the mutant ability of stabbing.

Wolverine is suspiciously good at stabbing, it makes sense. Maybe we should take a closer look at his powers.

This guy was so obnoxious--"Yeah, we looked up how it's pronounced, but we picked the one we liked, even though it's probably wrong." And he kept saying it, like he knew it was annoying. Hey guy--people who say it as lebue are f-ing morons.

Interestingly, he does better with "Boudreaux"--not much, but he's somehow fine with pronouncing the "eaux" sound THERE. That's as far as I got with it before closing the tab.

the are all alternate reality Gambits, everyone in the 616 died with the exception of a few Heroes and Villains, Spiderman Iron Man Thanos, Namor, Black Swan two of Thanos's warriors, Black Panter, Reed Richards, Black Bolts Brother, Cyclops and Emma Frost maybe Beast were the only X-Men to survive...well one of them has been killed off since

What are the rule for plot spoilers on this thread?

The rules are to use spoiler tags. When making your post you can either click on the question mark icon which is the spoiler tag or type [ spoiler] spoilers in between [ /spoiler] and that will work too.  Only without the space.

This thread is really to find out where Gambit is or what he is in.

ssssssssssshhhhhhhhhhhh its not a reboot like the new 52, but it is, but its not, it totally is, but its totally not, basically they are getting rid of the multiverse it would seem and its all just a vehicle to get Miles Moralis (however its spelled) over to the 616 because that's all that will be left, with popular character from other universes in the new 616 like Old Man Logan

You guys are terrible. Her boobs are fine. Her boobs got buffed in 2007. She got the nickname "Boobilee" back then. You guys really need to keep up with non-Gambit characters better. What's next, you'll be shocked to learn she turned 18 for real this time in 2011 even though Gambit was in the issue?  :P

Oh the days when Gambit was badass.  While I think it was a very favorable outcome for Gambit, I do think the big factor here besides the full deck is that Gladiator's powers depend on his self-confidence and his being mind controlled by Xavier probably means he is not at peak power as well as he underestimates Gambit and isn't prepared for his attack.

A fan asked about whether Gambit would show up in ANAD Marvel. Brevoort said someone on the panel was writing Gambit, and he would show up soon.

panelists Nick Spencer, Gerry Duggan, Marguerite Bennett, Al Ewing, Frank Tieri, Greg Pak, and Josh Williamson

I hope that doesn't mean Sims/Bower and that is actually someone else on the panel.  I don't know who was at the panel.  But I would like a different Gambit than the TV persona in XMen '92.

edit after Mytogma's edit:
Thanks Mythogma for your updated post.  That means allot to me, I don't want to be stuck with Xmen '92 for my Gambit fix.

Agreed, he doesn't need to be a prop to Rogue. And I don't want that either.  I want him to have role that is good for him even if its a small role, and unique to him without losing his identity to another character.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: mythogma on October 09, 2015, 04:35:42 PM
 I can't see him being in any other book written by anyone on the panel other then Uncanny Avengers. Unless there is a book I can't think off right now. With are luck Gambit dies from the T mist and Rogue has to continue fighting on despite her loss and prove she can be a hero and defend the Inhumans or something stupid like that.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: bigstupidjellyfish on October 09, 2015, 04:55:26 PM
It's either Duggan and Uncanny Avengers or Pak has an unannounced book that will be announced soon. It definitely isn't Tieri, he hates Gambit. I wish it was Ewing or Spencer though.

UNCANNY AVENGERS #3
GERRY DUGGAN (W) • RYAN STEGMAN (A/C)
Variant cover by Tradd Moore
MARVEL ‘92 VARIANT BY WHILCE PORTACIO
• The Avengers close in on the new Inhuman that’s destroying Boston.
• The Torch wishes he paid better attention in science class, and an Avenger has a secret that may undo the team before it begins!
• Plus -- the surprising final member of this series makes a grand and bloody entrance.

I do not want Gambit to be an Avenger but at the same time I would love him to join UA.

I was waiting a long time for Gambit and Deadpool story.

Gambit had stories with QS, Rogue, Voodoo, Deadpool (was hired to kill). All this history could work really good for him. Also Duggan is really good writer.

If he will be written good in UA then I will be happy.

Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: bigstupidjellyfish on October 09, 2015, 09:24:52 PM
If Duggan avoids the romance and writes them as teammates/friends, I will cry tears of joy. Gambit being an Avenger has been something I've wanted to see for a while now (also something I wanted to do once I started writing comics). My friends and I would make lists about who should be Avengers and Gambit was always at the top.

Also, think about it. This team already has Quicksilver, Steve Rogers, Spider-Man, Rogue, and Human Torch. Them's some big names. Haven't we all wanted Gambit to be more involved and start interacting with some bigger names for a while now?
Title: Re: Gambit Watch

Also Gambit joining UA could work as continuation of sub plot from his solo when Rogue asked him to join team.

As long as he's not a prop for sympathy while Rogue is in a hospital bed. I can deal with the Avengers thing.  I don't want to go backwards to the days of XML.  Gambit needs to be his own character.

So wait wait wait wait wait, these are the normal earth characters again?  Sorry I know I keep asking what's going on but I'm not really reading anything right now.  Saw this comment on another forum:

Quote
For those asking " didn't Deadpool die" the answer is quite simple, everyone died ..... well exept the very few that escaped when the two earths collided. The eath is back due to the events of Secret Wars so everyone who died in the catastrophe are back, simple.
A cosmic event seems to be the only way to kill Deadpool.

So, if Gambit does join this team then it's....normal Gambit?  Alternate earth Gambit but the same as normal Gambit?  New Gambit?

I don't see why everyone is jumping to the conclusion that Gambit will be joining UA. That solicit doesn't reference Gambit in any way. I'd say it had more to do with Pete Wisdom, assuming they were using "bloody" as Brits use it and not referring to actual blood. Then I'd say it might be Moon Knight or maybe... well I don't really care past that point.

They said Gambit will be have a major role in a non X-Men book. That's great, and not so great. IMO of course. Great, because Gambit finally gets out from underneath the sinking X-Men brand that barely utilized him when they had exclusive control. Not so great is the fact that hes got a film on the horizon. Major role can easily translate to "tragic death".

Then I'd say it might be Moon Knight or maybe... well I don't really care past that point.

In that case it would've needed to read "a bloody grand entrance", otherwise they're just saying "a grand and very entrance". 

Original 616 Gambit every one else seems to be back who "died"at the beginning of SW

So what you're trying to tell me is that a major Marvel event that was supposed to change everything didn't really change much at all?  That's new  :P

GERRY DUGGAN (W) • RYAN STEGMAN (A/C)

Variant cover by Tradd Moore

MARVEL ‘92 VARIANT BY WHILCE PORTACIO

• The Avengers close in on the new Inhuman that’s destroying Boston.

• The Torch wishes he paid better attention in science class, and an Avenger has a secret that may undo the team before it begins!

Plus -- the surprising final member of this series makes a grand and bloody entrance.

i think thats where they are getting their conclusion from, the bloody means blood and is not a referance to Pete Wisdom as he is leading a different Avengers team, unless he will appear on both teams, i dont think its Gambit though i have a feeling its either New Wolverine or Old Man Logan

I thought the same, but I refrained from voicing it due to the fact both of them are already slated for 2 books each outside of this.

or its Sabertooth  :o im thinking its one of those 3 anyone from the Weapon X Program/ a Wolverine plotpoint seems to be able to appear in multiple titles, the Wolverine that died at one point was on 3 x teams an avengers team and a solo, so All new Wolverine and OML could be in a third book and Sabes could be in a second
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: purplevit on October 11, 2015, 01:47:52 PM
Nah, it is not Sabertooth. The idea is for team not to like Deadpool on this team so Sabertooth will steal all that hate.


I just hope Gambit won`t join Inhumans :-\

Maybe something with 2099 world, Alchemax, Serval and SM 2099?

Post by: anya on October 11, 2015, 03:22:14 PM
No the solicit doesn't imply gambit ( I personal think cable, sorta bloody character and reunite with deadpool). The thing everyone is going off of is I think one of the panels where someone asked where's gambit, the response was he's showing up, someone on this panel is writing him. Duggan's was one of the panel there and the other were completely random. So uncanny avengers is the most 'logical' but marvel's never been constrained by logic before... so it's either UA or completed random title. Either one is possibly.

I didnt like the tone of voice and body language. The "X-Men fans will continue to be unhappy" joke didnt sit well with me, as if we cant be satisfied because we as nearly a whole have disagree with the vast majority of stories that have been published in the last 5-8 years, with small exceptions. But the whole panel itself seemed lifeless and lacking of joy. Kind of a Marshawn Lynch approach of "I'm just here so I don't get fined" kind of feel. Google it, if you don't get what I'm talking about.

But it is true though, some fans have already decided that the story is going to suck and refuse to even consider that it might be good. It is unfair to everyone who is involved in the process like the writers, artists, and yes even the publisher and the editors. But marvel knows this now and are not afraid to bring it up, if some consumers can constant bring up how bad is going to be in every forum and everywhere else then talk about it then sorry they have a right to bring it up as well and even make a joke about it. About the panel itself come on they have been there since the comic con started dealing with panel after panel and thousands of fans you expect them to be alert and not a little bit tired. Sorry but to me that is a little unfair. That is just my opinion though.

And its not just panel after panel either.  They spend time on "flloor" to sign things and talk with fans.  An exhibition hall type setting.  Plus whatever else is expected of them.  It's not just showing up for an hour and leaving. These things get crazy and its hard for those who are guests to be featured at the event to even leave the building for downtime.

Sadly that seems to be the new way to get sales in comics nowadays. Piss your fanbase off. I don't get it most (or all) of the time but that's why I pretty much don't buy anything right now especially from Marvel or DC. Just go for shock value and 'EVERYTHING WILL CHANGE' all the time. Why should anyone care? Sadly I try not to anymore even though I clearly do cause I'm still here checking on Gambit and naively hoping maybe they'll get it right sometime soon.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: Nekobaghira on October 12, 2015, 05:17:42 PM
Good point Albahan888.

Look at the Iceman thing.  There is an attitude at Marvel that they piss people off all the time, its just the way it is, its not to be malicious or anything. (I can find you a link, while it was an okay to publish convo but not for here. That is I won't assume for here but I can point it to you.)

The hot spots/issues get them sales, get people talking about their product and they need that to get more sales. I have to see this/buy this type of thing. They want people buying their books and they're doing anything they can to achieve that.

I am not buying into the possibility of death in the major role story for Gambit. They kill Gambit off, it makes things easy for me monetarily.  

It really has become very episodic when it comes to comic books.  The long term stories don't mean much and can be easily changed. IMO

It comes with the territory. I'm supposed to give them a pass on a poor attitude because they might be sick of trying to sell me on their products? Having to be on the floor and answer questions is part of being a creator, with only a few exceptions (writers like PAD, Bendis and CC do press and appearances but have garnered enough influence that its unlikely they'll be as pressured).

So when Neko got a poor response from that creator once, we should give him a break because he got asked the question or questions like it before. Cmon now. They're paid to sell books. Answering to the public is part of a convention... It's like 90% of the purpose of a convention.

As for not liking something before it comes out... If its an issue, stop putting out solicits months in advance with book synopsis. It's our right as consumers to pass judgement on something that's presented to us. Microsoft learned that the hard way with the Xbox One. That thing lost thousands or millions of potential sales months before it even debuted thanks to poor press, and lack luster advanced presentations. People got fired because of the botched launch.

We are not mandated to like something because of past track record. This is an editorial/executive issue. They OKed all of this as a whole. If they put out press and get push back on almost all of it, then its not the creators faults, they got the ok and direction to go in that direction. The whole line is moving in a specific direction, a loy of people don't like the ideas presented to them by Marvel. These guys are in a tough spot. They didn't come up with this status quo. They aren't decimating the mutants, responsible for killing 616 Wolverine and replacing him with OML and a female clone. The O5 were there far before any these guys. These guys aren't responsible for ignoring and/or relocating some the X-Men's most popular characters (pretty sure this might upset a few people). I don't envy their uphill battle. But first impressions are everything in any market of commerce.

Honestly again I am not into the complex, I just can't get behind it or even care for it myself. I will judge the books based on the books itself not a solicit(half the time there wrong) I want to give the book and the new writers a shot before I pass judgement on there work. They are aloud to have a chance, everyone deserves one no matter what. You and a lot of the other complexers have your mind set and nothing will change your mind, even if the stories are great I doubt any of you will like them. Once again about the comic-con people are human and humans can and are aloud to get tired and even have a bad moment. I am not one to expect writers and artists to be lively all the time especially after dealing with what they have to deal with at a comic con. Once again I have my opinion and you have yours and I really doubt we will change are minds so before this gets out of hand I am stepping back.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: DonPriceTag on October 13, 2015, 01:44:06 PM
Ummm... Not the argumentative type, I like discussion, debate, open conversation; this doesn't get personal for me, but the complex? What does this have to do with complex? Doesn't that involve Marvel trying to erase the X-Men? I don't believe that's the case, they make up too much of their annual comic sales. It's foolish. If your talking about my point of the changes in status quo, well those aren't speculations, its actually slated to occur. There's no mind changing going in here, just my opinion of how business in a free market should occur.

But like I said, I'm not saying the upcoming books are going to suck. But me and a lot of folk on this board aren't too interested in what's being offered. Don't trust the solicits, ok they aren't 100% accurate all the time, but are still put out by the company that makes them. How true they are is up to them. Cons and Panels are their place to straighten out misinformation, but instead it was lifeless and cryptic. Besides the solicits, remember the little mini previews that were "leaked" months ago with each new book's cover art (Remember when everyone thought Gambit was going to be de-aged and attached Daredevil?) with bylines? Most of the times trailers and photos are leaked its just the companies trying to gauge interest. Maybe that was the case this time, maybe not. They can't get upset over fan opinion on something they gave to the fans to have an opinion on.

Im not a "complexer" though the thread can be entertaining to pop in on and stir the pot (I do this... Like playing with ants) ;) . But to each, their own.

At the end of the day, Marvel is under no obligation to be happy happy joy joy with fans and there is certainly a subset of fans that seem entitled and think that Marvel needs to cater to them.  The fact is comics are no longer Marvel's meal ticket so if they don't want to play nice with fans, they don't have to.  Just as you don't have to buy their comics.  Whether you think it's good business or not is irrelevant really.  Until such time that Marvel's alleged attitude to fans impacts their bottom line signifcantly, they have no incentive to play nice.

Well seeing readership drops every year despite their attempts to bolster them, I guess fan reaction/ interaction is as much a factor in their sales as any... Outside of the amount of readers  vs cost of the average book leveraged against general interest. But what you are saying is true, they aren't obligated to play nice or interact with fans, or even provide information about their products, but it definitely is counter productive when attending a fan/press reliant event. If they have no interest in being there why not just do as they've several times this year and not have X-Men panel? Well they have one because one would assume they want the press and perhaps even goodwill in hopes you spend your money. NYCC is one of the biggest conventions and most Marvel centric events of the year, next to D3 now. Not saying this was some kind of disaster PR move, or even all that bad, just not the most enthusiastic of showings.

But again, your right. Comics aren't their biggest seller anymore. They'd move on just fine without it or our poultry dollars. So, question is, despite the pessimism, why are we still here?

They attend these events because it's expected.  But other than that, they are pretty much just going through the motions.  Seems pretty obvious to me, they are not hugely invested in the idea of marketing this stuff aggressively to fans and they will do just enough to basically get a C-.

We pray attend in vague hopes that Marvel will acquire an editor in chief that cares about production values, and pandering to the fans to fill the idea of a proper business model. Bob Harris may have been an ass, but he was an ass that knew how to run a business. He kept his authors in a row, and crossed his t s', and dotted his i s'. He paid attention to demand, and the whims of the fans. And this was before the internet. So he actually worked at finding out what the fans wanted. Ever since Joe Quesada took over, it's just been downhill for Marvel. Between having to go bankrupt at trying to have their own distributing company, to being a fanboy that wants authors to focus on the characters he likes, and hiring authors that are yes men. And dismissing anyone that steps a toe out of line, or suggests a different angle. Quesada is an egomanic of what he wants. Harris was and egomaniac of proper business, and catering to the masses, and making his authors accountable to keeping their stories and characters straight.

Honestly, I think it's too late. And I don't know if Disney cares... But Quesada needs to go so that a proper business oriented editor in chief can come in that cares about figures based on fans.

While the medium of comics may be slowly being whittled away story telling isn't :). Disney and Marvel still have excellent opportunities to translate X-men into other mediums while still giving the core comic experience TAS, EVO, WATX and the movies heck digital distribution prove that. The x-men and what they represent is timeless I'm going to be sure I pass them on in some form to my children and ensure it goes at least another generation :). While I hope comics are around for much Longer than that I kind of believe the X-men will outlive the format and their stories will continue on well after.

Speaking of such things imagine re-living your favorite x-men tales in a VR world I am excited for the future of story telling :).

Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: DonPriceTag on October 15, 2015, 08:24:09 AM
It's part of The Secret Wars crossover event. Each comic is its own self contained world.created by Doom. Most worlds have doppelgangers of characters in all the other worlds, which is why you'll see different versions of Gambit, Captain Marvel, Spider Man etc in each world. A-Force is a book about a world called Arcadia currently led by that worlds version of She Hulk, A-Force is the name of the all women hero team that protects the realm. Like X-Men 92, it's going to become an ongoing Avenger's book following Secret Wars end, but like it, will be a main universe series.

However, Jun 19th is an odd date to choose.  Gambit's first appearance was August 15th 1990 - that was the release date of UXM #266.  

Actually August 1990 was just the cover date for the comic- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cover_date

The actual release date for a comic is usually two or three months(depends on the year released) earlier than the cover date.  Uncanny X-Men 266 really came out in June.

Thanks Thjan for the info.  All good with the date, on places to buy the book its always listed as Aug.  I went with it.  Either way - glad we didn't totally miss it.  

Maybe we got busy this year.  I know this past summer was very busy for me with all sorts of home projects.

Anyway- like I said, we can still celebrate!

Shame on Marvel for not making it a bigger deal. And yeah, we don't usually miss much.  Not sure why it was missed.  Stuff happens.  ;D

Not just us, Marvel didn't care either and look at 2015 in general for Gambit.  Not a very good showing for his 25th year. Killed off in several SW books - and tbh MODOK didn't need to kill Gambit and that would have been okay appearance, Xmen '92 his TV show persona is a parody of him, and Gambit the Collector. 

I don't recall Marvel actually doing anything for any character other than Wolverine or Spider-Man when it comes to highlighting their number of years in comic book existence.

No they dont seem to ill check the old issues when im home see if something shows they might do, in Gambit issue 13 when back in the past the guild are meditating in an attic or something but there are banners with weird symbols which are also painted on their bodys, also the Guild have diamond symbols on their foreheads like  Sinister...interesting , also in some other issues when Gambit is shown sitting on the throne there are red banners hanging on the wall with a kinda flaming bird type thing

Gambit will be re-accurring on Ucanny Avengers; he and Rogue will be an on-again/off-again couple but Gambit will decline being tied to the team full-time.

Also, the big resurrection in Uncanny Avengers? It's Morph. He'll have his 90s X-Men costume though as Marvel plans on exploiting the 90s era nostalgia with him on the team.

Cable, Deadpool and Gambit is awesome. But we need to count also Old Cap, Rogue, Inhuman girl, Torch, Voodoo, Quicksilver and maybe Spider-Man. 10 characters in 1 book. It need to be a weekly book so everyone will get some time to shine ;D

There is too many characters. Which is why I'm limiting my purchase - Old Cap, Rogue, Inhuman Girl, Torch and Voodoo do nada for me in this book.  :)

Gambit will be support I would suspect. Which means very little time to shine unless the writer takes a shine to him.

Not sure how Deadpool is handled and Cable being added may get some spotlight right away.

It would never happen but it would be great to see Cable and Gambit talk about all that happened during MC between them and Hope even if it is as simply as Gambit asking how Hope is doing.  It always seemed odd to me that after MC, no one really brought up the role Gambit played in saving her from Bishop and ultimately giving her to Xavier.

Meh... I think we're reading too much into that statement. Maybe I'm jaded by recent history of how Marvel handles him but I'm not convinced he's going to be on the roster. I know Cable will be, but theres nothing saying that Gambit will remain longer than one issue... I could be wrong, but I'm just not sold on the idea from that 5 word so statement. Cable and Gambit are in the book... yes. But only Cable has been confirmed as having an ongoing roster spot.

pretty sure the discussion for Gambit being on the team went like this, PTB 1: hey what about Gambit, Limbo? PTB2 : no he has a movie coming out we better put him somewhere, keep the fans happy. PTB 3 : we could make him an avenger it'd piss fox off. PTB 1: oh i like that but um lets not make him an Avenger we dont want people to think we like Gambit. PTB 4: he can guest star and we will tell people he has a big roll and we planed it from the outset.

Cable's not the only headlining ex-X-Man appearing in future issues of "Uncanny Avengers," as Jiraiya noticed. We'll close out part one with a couple Gambit questions.

I wanted to ask about that powder keg cover you dropped on us for "Uncanny Avengers" #5. A lot was done in the past to split these two [Rogue and Gambit] by [Mike] Carey and later [James] Asmus to the point where they could easily not cross paths again. What inspired you to bring Gambit back into the mix with Rogue? ... Will you be leaving their attraction out of the story or are we going to get more on and off angst again?

Duggan: What a great cover, right? I'd like to let that one speak for itself. Let's talk afterward.

Gambit has been used a lot as a prop/plot device in other story lines. Is his character likely to get any development here or will this be more of him making a smash and grab appearance to set the tone for the story?

Duggan: Unfortunately, I'm going to take the fifth, but you will have trust me that I would bring the same A-game to any character. My philosophy is pretty simple: I can't write a story that would make you lose interest in your favorite character, but I know I might not get any second chances with readers. Even the thinnest of characters can always be fleshed out. Not calling Gambit thin at all -- just saying, any of these characters can be cool. I know expectations are high for this issue, but I'd rather readers come in cold. I can promise that "Uncanny Avengers" # 5 is an important event that will reverberate into the future of this book.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: DonPriceTag on November 24, 2015, 06:37:16 PM
...he dodged both questions. I think he just confirmed my thoughts of this being a one issue/arc thing. I don't think he or his editors thought Gambit's possible inclusion would foster this much interest, just as they didn't think his solo would make it past 12 (I'm pretty sure if they did plan it out Gambit's solo would have gone much further but the book didn't fit into their plans and lineup). At this point I think be wants as many people as possible interested without sullying his relationship with the Gambit and Romy fans (because of the cover, Romy bait obviously).
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: AeroSennin on November 24, 2015, 07:11:25 PM
Interestingly my question was altered a bit. They cut it off after one of the full stops. It originally included a bit relating to the Torch and this triangle. If it was dangerous poking Romy fans like that as many are over this on and off again bit and would it have been safer to leave gambit in limbo if he wanted to explore Rogue and Torch.

I wonder if it was deliberate or if the question was too long. I think he was really trying to avoid the Torch bit. Thoughts?
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: AeroSennin on November 24, 2015, 07:41:12 PM
I'm not American but a quick Google places the fifth as right not to incriminate oneself.... it almost bodes ill without saying more. Also thin character again is not a welcoming phrase. I am starting to wonder if limbo was not safer?.

I took his response to essentially be, "pick up the book to find out," which is fine.  He does seem to realize he doesn't have much time to try and sell us on Gambit in UA so I will see how it plays out.  People just seem to expect way too much if you think a writer is going to spoil things and in the end time will tell.

My sentiments exactly. You don't have to include spoilers on a question if a character will or will not be in the book, especially if it's not even part of the plot. The solicits don't infer that he'd be part of some surprise, but only if best "friend or foe". #6 seems to have e nothing to do with #5, so him saying yes or no if Gambit will be a permanent fixture would do nothing to spoil the story... Again, I think be kept it vague to not kill the dreams of hopefuls that will impulse buy the book in hopes that it will be Gambit's home for the foreseeable future. If #5 sells better than the other issues around it, I think we'll see a rewrite and have him included in future issues and arcs.

I am not saying it is hard.  I am saying maybe it's not his preference or style to do so and I see no reason to expect that someone will.  Some people would be more forthcoming in that scenario and some people won't.  To each his/her own.

It very well may be that Gambit will be a plot point.  It very well may be that he won't.  Unless someone knows Duggan's personality to know what he means when he says something like that then it's just pointless speculation.

Oh I have no intention of buying this book as 616 Gambit and Rogue don't interest me.  His appearance would have to blow me away when I flip the pages in the comic book store for me to consider buying.  I just don't see the point of overanalyzing his response or lack thereof.

You're assuming these A+ writers WANT to work under the constraints Marvel puts on them. It's a stable pay check but from what I gather these guys in the X-Men office run on a tight leash. Isn't Scott over at DC? Not exactly the "cold" especially if these movies do for them what MCU did for Marvel.

Comes up (maybe "Came up" is better) with ideas but cant follow through to save his life. Not to mention his scripts are just bland... vanilla at best.

From Duggan X-Po about Rogue:

Question: All I want is a book with Gambit in it. Is there any hope for that?

Duggan: Yes. Yes, there is. Maybe even more than one.

your thoughts, gang... I bolded "maybe" as I think it's key in this sentence. He just stringing us along so he can rebuild some good faith with us?
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: bigstupidjellyfish on February 09, 2016, 04:16:56 PM
He might be counting X-Men '92. So that means either new book featuring Gambit alongside '92 or multiple books featuring Gambit alongside '92. Or he isn't 't counting it whatsoever.

I think a lot of people would pick it up if that were the case. Duggan's a big name. I hope it wouldn't crossover too much with Rogue and the Uncanny Avengers and instead engages with the X-Men books more.

I personally don't think we'll be getting a solo for Gambit, but a team book starring him is more likely.

I don't think he got a "kick out of it", but as a writer of an action book, getting an emotional response from the reader, even a negative one, isnt necessarily a bad thing. It means he made you care about what he wrote. I do think what he should have done after yanking our chain, whether intentional or not, he should have been a little more forthcoming with his audience, especially a gun-shy one like Gambit fans. For instance, give the readers a sure sign that it'll be revisited with the real Gambit's involvement during an interview. Or perhaps take it a step further and insert a prologue of Gambit elsewhere so we know he at least exists within the book's scope.

The problem is though, if he was aiming to get an emotional response from us, it was a cheap and meaningless way of doing it.  He knows how desperate we are to see Gambit, so he (or Marvel, whatever) promises us Gambit, advertises Gambit, uses Gambit as a means of selling the book, only for it not to be Gambit.  Winding people up and uses dirty tricks to make them angry isn't very creative or meaningful.  Making us sad, happy, upset or anything like that and getting an emotional response through storytelling, that's another thing. 

Now maybe he actually has a Gambit story up his sleeve.  Then I'll eat my words.  I'll happily eat them.  Seeing is believing though.

When I saw that, I was thinking of it as "issue" statement. Like he could be in more than one issue of a book...such as Uncanny Avengers. I would happily be wrong if it means we get to see him in a couple books. (Disclaimer: marvel has the ability to make me eat my words and regret being excited about him being in any book.)

Seeing all of Duggan'a responses including those on Twitter, I think it makes sense to expect The real gambit to pop up at some point in UA. Could be 8 or 9 since those are supposed to be big rogue issues. (Which I get is not comforting for many of you.)

That's your fault though not his.  Again, comics have always had stories that had bait and switch or imposters.  The idea that Duggan can't tell a story with imposters simply because Gambit fans are dying for Gambit is just odd to me.  There was nothing dirty about having RS impersonate Gambit.  It fit within the story he crafted. 

Are we going to say a story can never have an imposter or a bait and switch or does this rule only apply to Gambit?

The issue is that it went beyond storytelling. The book was marketed in a manner that basically said this was Gambit, not foreshadowing and plot developments in the issue before or heck, during it. So no, not Duggan's doing, but id say the marketing staff that wrote the solicits, had the cover drawn, plastered it with Gambit's signature logo, and wrote things like "Gambit makes his move!" on it got one over on us.

Not to mention they released that cover a little sooner than they normally do (it did its job LOL). Another thing that got me, at least now, was the "friend or foe" thing. His allegiance never came into question during the story... And his attentions were made clear with one or two sentences. That tells you the solicits and the writer didn't have too much correspondence. They made us question his allegiance not his Identity.

There are two sides to every story.  From the perspective of a Gambit fan, it sucks.  From the perspective of Marvel, it makes perfect sense to market it as a Gambit appearance to maintain the secret that it's not and to make it more surprising when it's revealed.  I mean the latter is kind of the point of a story of this nature ie to fool people in thinking it's Gambit until the big reveal that it's not.

I know you love an argument dude. But you've missed our point regarding emotional responses.  From the marketing machine's perspective aye, use Gambit to sell a book.  That's just dirty marketing tricks though, that's nothing to do with story.  Is a "story of this nature" there to lure fans into buying the book because they think it's something that it's not?  

You're right.  There's nothing wrong with the story itself.  Sure, make readers think Gambit has shown up only to reveal it's an imposter.  That's not a bad story point in any way. What we're saying is that the lead up to this story was cheap.  They've used bait and switch tactics on us and then gone "don't be mad bro, this is how storytelling works!".

Would I have been annoyed if, without a marketing campaign that made us believe the real Gambit is back,  suddenly Gambit had shown up and it turned out to be RS? No, absolutely not.  It probably would've tickled me greatly and I'd be saying "man, I wish Duggan would actually write the real Gambit, he's quite good with the character".

Edit:  Just realised I've only repeated what Don said only less eloquently.  Sorry mate  :P
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: remydat on February 11, 2016, 10:42:27 AM
So just so I am clear, you wanted them to keep Gambit in the story but then not market it at all?  And let's suppose they did that and Bleeding Cool or someone leaked that Gambit would be in UA 5.  Then with no marketing leading up to it, Gambit fans would complain about how Gambit gets no respect as he is reuniting with Rogue in UA 5 and Marvel isn't marketing it at all.  Point being it's a catch 22.  Someone was always going to be pissed no matter how this book was marketed. 

And It's not a dirty trick.  It is their job to sell books as well as maintain the illusion it is Gambit.  The fact Gambit fans keep falling for their marketing is more reason for them to keep doing it.  Instead of complaining about marketing doing what they are employed to do, maybe stop giving them a reason to do what they did. 

I mean holy crap they told everyone that fans would be upset and yet no one thought to proceed with caution?  That was as big of a heads up you are ever going to get from Marvel and yet people still ran out and got the issue first day so honestly as I said it's your own fault (speaking generally).  Stop giving them your money until you are sure you will be satisfied with the product.

I guess my point is simply once the decision was made to use RS Gambit then obviously they would market it as a Gambit appearance to conceal that fact.  That's the nature of the beast.

But fair enough, agree to disagree.

To be fair, they didn't specify which fans would be upset. Because we're the punching bags of fandom lately, we assumed it would be us, but hoped otherwise... Sadly, we were wrong. Well most of us. Apparently there's a small minority that got a kick out of it.

Yes I think they said it first and then after they said it, the Romy cover and Gambit's guest appearance were revealed.  Seemed pretty obvious who they were referring to although most thought it was going to be something to do with Romy.  Either way, I think people had enough forewarning to be cautious.

And I don't think anyone got a kick out of it but rather some of us aren't going to be overly upset when things act according to their nature.  You throw a piece a meat in front of a tiger, it's going to eat it.  You give marketing overly excited and hopeful Gambit fans, they are going to use them to try and sell more books. 

So the question is, are you going to keep throwing yourself in front of the Tiger and hope that it's not hungry or will you take a more cautious approach?   Because throwing yourself in front of the Tiger and basically saying look at me then being upset when it eats you isn't the most logical approach.

IA - there was plenty of forewarning, when its stated that fans will be peeved by the issue is usually tell tale sign that something will set folks off. My only concern was it would be G's death. The plus is, he's not dead.

The other plus - RSGambit did act like Gambit. For those who don't romy, his refusing a kiss while a tactic to not get caught was amusing.

IA that it wasn't really getting a kick out of it, but when you go into these things with low expectations, its easier to handle.

Marvel didn't care - were proud to peeved off people.

If by "they" you mean Duggan, than ok. He was the only one in the equation that said fans might be upset (I think he was getting nervous by the amount of attention it got and wasn't looking forward to the backlash it might create). Otherwise, I don't see how that cover would serve as "warning" except to the extremely apprehensive... Or perceptive, I guess it depends on what end of the spectrum you're on. In a vacuum, the only foreboding piece of advertising during the whole campaign was the "friend or foe" thing that never came into play.

I don't think anyone questions the ability of the marketing department and their ability to do their jobs. But good business rarely equals, good ethics or good will towards customers, at least beneath the surface. Especially when we're talking about sales. Look at what the comic book companies did during the 90s. They almost marketed themselves to death.

Hey... people still think they are saving money on top of the line electronics on black Friday. Its common knowledge that most consumer electronics cost a fraction of what they sell for to actually make (shoes are even worse). It's a good business. But on black Friday, especially with TVs and low-end computers, those same companies stock shelves with watered down versions and put them on "sale". Doesn't make them the devil... Shady? Perhaps, but only if you forked over your money expecting an equal transaction. Like paying for something and expecting to get what was advertised. Silly of me and others, I know. But I had hopes :'(

Not like I didn't have an idea, it spoiled vaguely the night before. But it was so well written up to that point I still got my hopes up.

Does it matter who warned you?  You were warned.  You chose to ignore that warning.  And you can't really claim ignorance as I recall people speculating about what the warning meant (e.g death, etc.) so not sure what more you want Marvel to do. 

There was nothing unethical here as in the world of movies, comics, books, consumers are routinely led to believe one thing only for it to be another.  That's a very well mined story idea and unless you are going to argue they should stop these types of stories across the board, you just think it's unethical because as a Gambit fan, you got burned.

Hmm... Incoming wall of words. Trying to be optimistic, he never said which fans would be upset. It's not like Gambit fans were the only ones reading the issue. It could have easily been Rogue, or Torch, which what is what I was hoping for, Gambit getting the better end of the deal, maybe fooling the team and making them look silly. And you do realize I said I went into it knowing, and stated I was talking in a vacuum? I didn't go into anything blind, but with high hopes. Sue me. I'm trying to talk with you man, not argue a point... Unless you work for Marvel's Marketing Department? But its not like this is some nonsensical topic, CBR who's been known to not be overly pro-Gambit chose to even bring it via an article and thread, not because it was a huge lead up twist, but because it left a lot of folk hanging.

You really zeroed in on the word "ethics", but yeah telling the consumer one thing it turns out to be something else, isn't the most ethical act in terms of being upfront, its not illegal technically but its been known to sprout class action lawsuits. That's the business of sales sometimes. And yeah its happened in movies too, and it pissed people off as well then too. I think Brad Pitt was billed in a movie and despite trailers and posters, was only in like 5 minutes of it. Or that fairly tale movie "Bridges of something" that was advertised as a whimsical family movie but turned out to be extremely depressing and left people crying because some little girl died LOL. Or that terrible FF7 movie (and I'm a car guy! 02' Subie Bugeye) that supposedly had the Rock in it... Yeah he was in the first 5 minutes and the last 15 and sprinkled in the middle inside a hospital bed. So any Rock fans got a little shorted, but that could have been due to the reshoots following Walker's death. But I digress...

I was using this here as just a way to make a point, not actually calling Marvel anything. I did say marketing did their job. And uhh, for lack of better words... Duh, a lot of people got burned. Anyone who bought this hoping it would be Gambit as it was aggressively advertised as, got burned. I don't follow this book and bought it because they said my favorite character would be a part of it. So bravo to them. Again, I give them credit for selling some books at the expense of fan expectation.

There was no "warning" beyond some snitch who got the book early a night before and told the internet "its not Gambit". The only warning anyone could have taken to heart that something negative may happen was using lessons from the past. In which case we should stop reading altogether, something a lot of people here said they had done already. I read one book, the Ultimates. I came over and picked up UA for one reason. Marvel didn't give anyone a heads up LOL.

I remember Brevoort saying something about X-Men fans specifically but I don't see how that translates to "Gambit fans beware, ignore the cover, solicitations and mass of interview questions about him!". Marvel didn't give warnings, one person said something ambiguous. Only clue we had was their track record. Sometimes I think we forget that we aren't the normal fans. We have direct links to the industry. We read insider interviews and solicitations that someone who just goes into a store once a month or opens there comic app, don't. I'd say less than 10% of the readership has a CBR account, heck I'm the "hardcore fan" and didn't have one until last year LOL!

Purp:  I also remember Duggan saying along the lines of "some fans aren't going to be happy" purposely not specifying what fans (which makes sense, he never gave away any details). It led to a lot of us talking about it here and CBR. It was even part of my dialogue with him via Twitter. I'll try to find it for you Purp ;)

To end defending my opinion... I'm starting to think you guys assumed i was talking about you when I said "some people got a kick out of it". Sorry if you felt I was pointing a finger, but there were more then a few folk on CBR that really liked the twist, mostly because they didn't want to see Gambit in the book or just thought it was funny (laughing at Gambit fans) in a "nah nah nah-nah-nah" kind of way. So... some people did get a kick out of it.

Speaking of past history... It got me thinking. You guys don't think the next time we see Gambit, he'll have to be "rescued" do you? I mean the last couple times he "returned" it involved him kind of screwin the pooch. First in X-Factor where Wolverine basically makes him look like a clown then in Storm's solo. No matter how much fun that was, it was him asking her for help stealing something and needing to be saved a couple times as if he wasn't capable. I think Duggan made it clear that he'll be using Gambit again some time down the line. I hate if that was his entrance in AN Marvel. Being a damsel.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: Nekobaghira on February 14, 2016, 10:48:27 AM
I don't want him to have to be rescued, that would be very disappointing for me. He's not a damsel in distress.

The only comic I'm currently buying is Superman and Wonder Woman, and the amount of time Superman has been a damsel is starting to rub me the wrong way. From time to time, okay - but when its all you get storywise, I'll pass.

I would like for Gambit to be doing his own thing, whatever that may be.

I'm not sure how "clear" Duggan was - how much of it was just bs, blowing smoke as it were. The number of times a writer has said "they'll use Gambit" and "he's got a pivotal role" or whatever words that leads to possible use to be disappointed is pretty darn large by now.

I think I'd like a version of Gambit the Collector as the run in type role. He's taking something, perhaps the UA squad will not want him to have it - a little tension as to who ends up with item, I would want Gambit to do the right thing.

I always wondered what would have happened if Gambit's solo kept going and he kept stealing things from people, insulting royalty, crashing parties and pissing off international organizations, leading to the Avengers actually coming after him. I would have loved him playing cat and mouse with Hawkeye and/or Black Widow, maybe Spider Woman... I bring up those three because I dont see the likes of Thor, Cap or Iron Man going after him, or even being able to catch him while he's in his element.

I would be absolutely fine with this - he was always an anti-hero to me. I don't need him to be like a Superman or anything. Use his backstory, loads of stories that could be told with his background. And it doesn't even need to get into guilds either. He's always worked best with his own agenda.

I don't think you can criticize people for not 'listening' to brevoort's warning. He said x-fans would be pissed not gambit fans. It's pretty well 'documented' that marvel doesn't care what gambit fan think or else he'd actually be in a book now and they wouldn't have let Carey squash him to live out his old man abuse fantasy in legacy. I did think he might get killed, because an xmen dying in an avenegers book would piss off xfans. The oops it's not really gambit wouldn't have bothered 'xfans' who weren't particularly gambit fans, and it didn't. Given past behavior, there's absolutely no reason to think brevoort was talking about gambit or a bait and switch. I think was of the running theories was that rogue would be cured of being a mutant in order to cure the t-mist problem.

Don,

So my simple question is what did you want Marvel to do with the marketing?  Your only real options are for them to spoil their story or try and keep it completely secret.

I assume we can agree that spoiling their story isn't much of an option.  OK so next option would be to not market it as a Gambit appearance at all.  OK now what happens when someone leaks that Gambit is going to be in UA5 and Marvel didn't market it.  There would be upset Gambit fans complaining about how Gambit gets no respect and Marvel would still not spoil their story.  Except now they have also missed out on more sales.

Point being there are downsides to both scenarios and Marvel choose the scenario that offers them a chance to make more money.  That's entirely logical and ethical.

Further by contrast all you had to do after hearing the warning was wait to see what people said about his appearance.  You would have lost nothing but a chance to read it early.

I think was of the running theories was that rogue would be cured of being a mutant in order to cure the t-mist problem.

Of course I can.  Gambit is still an Xman so he is still within the realm of people that the statement could be aimed at.  And there were plenty of fans who read that statement and thought it was about Gambit on here and at CBR.

I am not saying you could guess exactly what it meant but you could like several of us refuse to to buy until you were sure.  We've all been burned by Marvel enough to proceed with caution.  I read the book in the comic store, put it back without buying it and then bought some Lucifer TPB.

Anyone running out the minute a comic comes out with an alleged Gambit guest appearance is asking to be disappointed.  How many times are you guys going to fall for this?  It's insanity at this point so sorry I have no sympathy for someone that continues to do this.  Now if you are someone that hasn't read comics the past decade or two and has been completely out of the loop regarding Gambit and Marvel then sure maybe I feel sorry for you that you were duped.  But everyone in this thread has seen this go on long enough to know better and frankly if I am Marvel and Gambit fans keep running out and buying Gambit guest appearances no matter how many times I disappoint them then I will keep doing it until they hold themselves accountable.

I actually didn't run out and buy it. I indeed waited to see what was happening, but I don't blame people who did for being upset. And there are lots of people who just pick up what looks interesting and don't follow sites or interviews. They don't have to have not been reading for ten years, just don't know about what editorial has been saying.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: remydat on February 15, 2016, 11:02:28 PM
Well to each his/her own then.  I blame them.  If you just pick up what randomly looks interesting then you better be prepared that sometimes it's not going to be what you anticipated. 

However I don't see any of those people in this thread.  I just see people who once again should know better by now.  Comics aren't a necessity. No one is going to be extremely disadvantaged if they wait to buy.

Whatever ....  It won't get me to put this book on a pull list.  While I may pick this up, I'll be in no hurry to do so because in the end, I don't care if Rogue meets Gambit.

Edit:RSGambit was thieving so there is auto drama with that even though UA looked the other way. They didn't know it was him so again more auto drama. Not to mention RSGambit not allowing a kiss and basically said she had cooties. Not seeing this as going well.

Solicit for Gambit/Deadpool mini.

MARVEL HAS JUST RELEASED THE SOLICITATIONS FOR JUNE FEATURING THE LAUNCH OF DEADPOOL V GAMBIT #1 (OF 5)
BEN ACKER & BEN BLACKER (W) • DANILO BEYRUTH (A)
Cover by KEVIN WADA
Variant cover by Tim Seeley
Gambit—one of the smoothest, best-looking operators in the world of the X-Men. Deadpool—one of the most annoying, ugliest dirtbags in the world of everything. Naturally, these guys got beef. But do you know what they have in common? A secret history of working together to pull con-jobs. That's right—the grift is on as the Regeneratin' Degenerate and the Ragin' Cajun begrudgingly take on one last job together. Writers Ben Acker & Ben Blacker (THUNDERBOLTS, The Thrilling Adventure Hour) and artist Danilo Beyruth (GWENPOOL) lead us into the dirty underbelly of Deadpool and the squeaky-clean abs of Gambit!

I had some spare time so I found Jordan D. White at Tumblr :)

My question: Is there any hope to see Fabian Nicieza writing Gambit again? Gambit by Nicieza/Skroce is my favourite comic book series ever.

His answer: I am not in charge of Gambit, so it’s not up to me. You want to track down Daniel Ketchum.


I found it interesting because it was Jordan D. White`s idea to put Gambit vs Deadpool and he is the editor of this mini.
Ketchum is the editor for all X books and editor with Brevoort for Uncanny Avengers.
Also if I am right, Ketchum was the one fightnig for Gambit solo in 2012.

So what do you think? If Jordan D. White hadn`t planned Deadpool V Gambit then we would have only cameo in UA for Gambit?

Or he will have bigger role in UA later? I doubt really because Duggan is ignoring all Gambit questions in X-Po.

How about a mini-series requiring the top thieves. . . something like a major heist from Doom's castle? I could only come up with 4 who would fit the bill. . . Gambit, Storm, Ant-Man and Black Cat.  Not a bad "New Fantastic Four" line-up.  While Storm is the logical leader / honest and trust-worthy type, the other three make for a very unpredictable line-up.

Hey now, hold your tongue... Gambit and Storm's movie rights don't belong to Marvel. How dare you offer a story in which MCU characters interact with X-Men other than dominating them physically, socially and politically. For shame.

Getting back to Deadpool v Gambit. If White has no control over Gambit where was it stated it was his idea for the book? It could have been something the editors through out there for a pitch and he was given the editorial job of the book.

Having pondered that, I'm just glad Gambit is in a mini. I don't care about him being in a book anymore. I'll take minis with concentrated Gambit than book where he's wallpaper or there for the sake of drama for Rogue.

The author of the piece has been set straight by several commenters, which is nice.

Funny thing about Gambit's fan... Most of them have never read a comic book in their life. Gambit shot to stardom following his inclusion in TAS. Millions upon millions of people who are fans of Gambit questioned why he was in the first 2 or 3 X-Men movies and don't even know we were once 3 months away from shooting a solo movie. Had a co-worker out of the blue started talking about how much he loved watching him on X-Men a d thought he was getting a movie. When I told him its generally been cancelled he was very disappointed. For fun, I asked a couple other people I know and Gambit was always the first or second X-Men they named from the show. Typically second to Wolverine.

Simmer down. I said "generally". Dantay is correct, it has been pushed back. Mind you, without a start date or any buzz beyond just that. At this point however, you can about compare it to the situation you see The Inhumans movie. Fortunately we still have Tatum and Limen attached to it, even if its a loose attachment at this point. Both have taken other jobs in the meantime while the script is reworked. Probably just because Fox plans to slash the budget thanks to Deadpool making nearly a billion dollars on a $60mil budget.

Exactly, which I sort of feel two ways about: "Yay, there are a lot of Gambit fans!...But they've only seen the cartoon." I've learned over time to not expect a current Gambit fan to be a comic reader. It's sort of frustrating, because I feel he's such a rich character in the comics. (Generally speaking, I mean...).

Yes, yes. He's awesome when not being smashed in the face by Cap's shield or wearing clown pants, or having pieces of his persona cut off and transplanted onto other pet characters to make them "cooler". All the while creators like Remender claim to not "understand the value in a character like him". But Fantomex? [sarcasm]That guy's awesome![/sarcasm]

OLD FRIENDS REUNITE IN UNCANNY AVENGERS

http://marvel.com/news/comics/26138/old_friends_reunite_in_uncanny_avengers?linkId=24190540

Marvel.com: You also get to draw Gambit and Rogue reuniting in this issue. What can you tell us about that meeting?

Pepe Larraz: I grew up with the Gambit and Rogue love story. I started reading X-Men books when I was a kid, so having them again on the same page was great. I think things became so intense between those two; they’ve been through a lot, and they are not as close as they used to be, but I wanted to give them some warm touches. That’s why I made the cartoony panel on page 3, to make readers smile tenderly watching them, as I was smiling drawing them. Both of them deserve it.

Errmmm... So Gambit's going on petty heists while mutant kind is dying out and making kissy faces... Not the worst but mostly to prop up Rogue and make her feel better. Awesome. Can't wait to spend my hard earned cash on this. This was definitely worth the wait and frustration of the last time he was in this book...
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: Nekobaghira on May 06, 2016, 12:19:23 AM
I see that sarcasm DPT. LOL  Of course he's a prop for Rogue. That's been his role for a long time. ;)

Funny he's trying to kiss her and she rejects him. I'm fine with that. LOL

Since Rogue is flying away in the last page. It's possible that these pages are it. I guess we'll find out.

The main titles do not treat Gambit well, and have not in a very long time. If he's not pining or wall paper, he's a joke in clown pants. I think I'm ok with only these pages. Less damage done. IMO.

Which is a shame, right?  Because when all is said and done, that is a fairly decent Gambit.  Not stellar, not Asmus or Nicieza levels of Gambit, but decent.  Sure of himself and confident, so you can see why Rogue wanted to jump him.  So I mean, if Gambit actually had a proper, substantial role as a recurring character in this book, then it would probably be a great addition!  Why noooooo we can't have that now can we?

But then you know...maybe I'm being being a beggar and a chooser, I want a writer to write Gambit because they WANT to.  Not because they got told to.  And not because they hate him and make him want to look bad (seriously got that vibe when Gambit got brought back in AoA to get trolled by Tampax and then die stupidly AGAIN), or because they need more drama with Rogue.  Like, Liu and Asmus and PAD, they wanted the character and wrote him wonderfully.  But hey they didn't sell millions of copies or whatever. 

So Duggan knows how to write Gambit but unless he wants to write Gambit because he likes Gambit, then I don't want him to write Gambit.  Does that make sense?  It's like Carey.  Who, by the way, I think is a rubbish writer especially now that I've read the novel he brought out recently.  But anyway, rubbish or not, Carey demonstrated by his first ever writing of Gambit in X-Men #200 I think that he could do the character justice.  He had flashes of it a few times, like that issue where Gambit, Rogue and Danger are going about stopping riots.  You know?  But I felt like he didn't like Gambit.  He only wanted to use him to make Rogue and Magneto look good.  And that stopped him from actually writing the at least competent Gambit that he COULD have. I don't ever want that again.

Well... Asmus wants to write Gambit and is hoping that we ask that HE gets to again. Maybe  I didn't make myself clear enough? Campaign the x-office to give Asmus another shot at Gambit. Hopefully with a little more freedom. A little more. Some of his ideas were a bit out there.

Comics Explained did a video chronicling Apocalypse and brought up Gambit twice. However, it was so inaccurate I'm not sure where he got his information from. He claims Gambit took part in the mutant massacre alongside the Marauders and that he joined  Apocalypse because he thought that the mutant race needed a leader and Apocalypse was the one that could do the job at any cost, basically... light him up if you see fit.

They kill off Gambit and I'll be peeved to say the least. I don't care that is "just a variant". Gambit has not been treated well via Uncanny Avengers. This doesn't bode well. And really it looks like a freakin' final prop for Rogue. So that Rogue gets a story and the Gambit fan loses their favorite character.  Yeah, I'm so excited for this. NOT.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch

Yeah Purp, you might be 100% right. The difference is, all the the variants are abstract dipictions of stuff thats actually happened... Gambit has never died in the main universe. What would be the point of teasing this? Unless we start getting variant covers of Beast, Storm, and Iceman dying, I'm going to be a bit concerned here. There's also the fact that Rogue's eyes are red/black as if she imprinted him before dying and shes obviously distraught. That's a lot of story for just a harmless click bait variant. But, again maybe Duggan & Co. are just screwing with us.  ???

Warpath is on the cover for New Avengers. Writer of NA may even do not know who Warpath is)
It is just a variant. Gambit and Rogue are on it because they sell.

Let's hope so... otherwise I'm going to Expedia.

Yeah Purp, you might be 100% right. The difference is, all the the variants are abstract dipictions of stuff thats actually happened... Gambit has never died in the main universe. What would be the point of teasing this? Unless we start getting variant covers of Beast, Storm, and Iceman dying, I'm going to be a bit concerned here. There's also the fact that Rogue's eyes are red/black as if she imprinted him before dying and shes obviously distraught. That's a lot of story for just a harmless click bait variant. But, again maybe Duggan & Co. are just screwing with us.  ???

What about all the alters we saw killed by New Sun? Or whichever issue that was where he had the horrible boy-band curls? Didn't he die at the end of that? Had him and I think Rogue kissing in the rain on the cover? And I know there's been a universe in which he was a zombie.....(then again there was also one where he was a toddler, and one in which he was a bloodhound, so that's not saying much!)

My point  was comparing that to the demises of Colossus, Nightcrawler and Jean, all of which lasted years. Jean is still dead if you dont count her teenaged self. I don't think you can stand these up next to that... heck, if we want to be really picky, Gambit took a bullet  to the head not too long ago.

Slow responses are probably due to the fact that this story probably has no bearing on Gambit's place in the MU, it's a story in the recent past. I'll be checking it out more than likely; and if it does well, maybe it'll turn into something more than a 4 issue Deadpool mini featuring Gambit!

All-New Inhumans has been cancelled and James Asmus is encouraging people to tweet Daniel Ketchum and the X-Men office to give him an X-Men book. It's not strictly Gambit related, but we know he's still interested in the character and if this works then it's a guaranteed spot for Gambit.

AXEL-IN-CHARGE: Facing the 'Divided' Marvel NOW! Future

New this week was "Deadpool v Gambit" #1, from Ben Acker & Ben Blacker and artist Danilo Beyruth. Obviously Marvel puts out a lot of Deadpool comics out, but Gambit seems like one of those characters with a cult fan base that is never quite satisfied -- how much of the motivation for this book was a way to get more Gambit material out there to the people?

Alonso: All of it. In addition to being a fan-favorite on pretty much every team he's been on, Gambit had a number of series and miniseries throughout the years, so we've long recognized that he's a character with a following. And right now, Deadpool is kinda-sort popular, too... so Ben and Ben whipped up a completely bonkers con man story that should appeal to fans of both characters.

Post by: Nekobaghira on June 24, 2016, 08:37:43 PM
That is one of the more positive things Alonzo has ever said about Gambit. Usually, its "here's here or there", not really acknowledging him other than ... there is "plans".

Its a positive that he sees the character has a following. That he is a fav on any team he's on.

Difference between Fox and MCU? They (MCU) had a CLEAR road map and plan from the end of Iron Man. The only surprises in their schedule came with the success of Guardians of Galaxy and acquisition of Spiderman (the productions of GotG sequel and plans for Spidey pushed back everything in phase 3 and even moved Captain Marvel to phase 4) and the axing of The Inhumans. Mind you, all these changes came like 10+ movies into their shared cinematic universe project. So no big deal, unlike Fox whom is pushing a single movie every two+ years, and all of them sans Deadpool (barely part of the shared universe) are sequels of the last, so not "shared".

If he's lost to fantomex I'd be beyond furious. Love how Fantome calls Remy a petty catburgular, when he's head of the Rhieves Guild.

I can see why people wanted Bunn to write Gambit now but I've also never understood why people think Gambit would work with/for Magneto. Good to see Gambit get some nice panel time that doesn't end with him being the Red Skull or involve Rogue (despite the fact that I like Romy and Rogue) or involve him getting taken out. I also liked the fight because it felt like a classic Gambit move of taking the advantage when it presented itself and even if he wasn't always in control of the fight he still won it... and he got to beat Fantomex. That's a double bonus for me.

It didn't make sense for him to get a "job" as it were in ANXF. I do think a story could be done where it could make sense. But I doubt the writers would even bother.

If MC can not think there is anything wrong with his Rogneto, it would be safe to say that the writers are not to terribly concerned with continuity.  As long as the character fits the bill story wise, its what you get. :)

Read this today and it reminded me of all the story potential that was wasted.  At the end there is a bit of an interview with Scott Lobdell where he talks about all the ramifications this story will have on Gambit's relationships with Storm, Marrow, and Rogue and we never really got any of that aside from some of the Rogue stuff.  The story potential with Marrow trying to reconcile Gambit's role in the massacre as well as his role in saving her life completely unresolved.  Then there is Storm exploring Gambit's motivations for joining and staying with the X-men despite never really being a die hard X-man.

At any rate, still much better than most of the stuff we get these days regarding Gambit.

I don't think Gambit would have a huge problem working with Mags.  Even when Joseph and he were in a bit of a love triangle with Rogue, there were times where he and Joseph worked fine together which I was reminded of when I read the Trial of Gambit.  Gambit says something to the effect of "us scoundrels need to stick together."

So I think classic Gambit had enough confidence, swagger, and understanding that people made mistakes that he would be willing to give Mags a chance if he thought Mags was trying to turn over a new leaf or had the best interests of mutants at hear.  He would obviously probably still keep an eye on him like he was planning on doing with Apocalypse but Gambit was always willing to work with shady types.

I kinda agree and disagree. About Gambit getting along or not getting along with Magneto. Gambit and Magneto have been in what I call an undeclared cold war, mostly concerning Rogue, not to mention the personal strike against him during the "trial" and initiating it in the first place, all just to distract the X-Men (which ultimately didn't distract anyone...). By all means, Gambit should kind of dislike the man, but at the same time not. Either him, or some version of him has gotten between him and her several times in at least 3 realities. But IMO what pulls that away is the fact that Gambit's self-loathing may dampen any ill feelings he could have or should have developed toward him.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: anya on July 21, 2016, 11:36:26 PM
I kinda saw it more as, yes he would be willing to work with shady types, but he wouldn't 'buy' mags constant holier than thou, and woe is me routine that Xavier and the rest always do. And as such wouldn't trust him as much either, hence wouldn't want to work with him (also he's got more 'human' friends and family than most of the other characters )

Fanto and Mistique did nothing important in 10 issues and appeared only a little bit. They are not even with team.

There were nothing to do for Gambit in this book really. Ofcourse Bunn could change if Remy was a part of book.

Post by: remydat on July 22, 2016, 05:15:37 PM
I kinda agree and disagree. About Gambit getting along or not getting along with Magneto. Gambit and Magneto have been in what I call an undeclared cold war, mostly concerning Rogue, not to mention the personal strike against him during the "trial" and initiating it in the first place, all just to distract the X-Men (which ultimately didn't distract anyone...). By all means, Gambit should kind of dislike the man, but at the same time not. Either him, or some version of him has gotten between him and her several times in at least 3 realities. But IMO what pulls that away is the fact that Gambit's self-loathing may dampen any ill feelings he could have or should have developed toward him.

I didn't say they would get along.  I said Gambit can work with him or be on a team with him.  I would expect it to be like it was in the Trial of Gambit.  Gambit and Joseph were not friends by any means but that didn't prevent Gambit from siding with Joseph if he thought it was right.

The point was simply as someone that has done bad things he regrets and as someone who has always worked with shady types, I see no reason for Gambit not to be able to put aside any issues he has with Mags if ultimately it's in the best interest of the team or mission.

Hey Purp,

Gambit is in Civil War II X-Men #3.

Still not sure how I feel about this issue. Remy has some nice moments with Storm in it and funny dialogue with Fantomex.

But at the end when he is running towards Fantomex for round two he is distracted by Rogue. He don`t believes that Rogue could stand at Magneto`s side. And after that she punches him in face. Rogue is really a Mistique. Mistque admits that Rogue is Gambit`s weakness.

I think we will need to see issue 4 to understand really how this fight will end.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: Spoonz on August 17, 2016, 10:39:45 AM
I don't think that Cullen Bunn would make Gambit lose horribly, although I hope not because he's a fan. Is that where the issue ends, setting up a Gambit and Mystique showdown?

Seems those two can't figure out if they're friends or not. One of the most antagonistic relationships around?

Then Psylocke arrived. Fantomex says no need to read his mind and he will tell the truth.
He tells Magneto tasked him to New Atilan to get info about new Inhuman and not supposed to engage or killing him.

Psylocke says Fanto may telling the truth insomuch he is capable of.

After that Logan screams that they are under attack and have been set up.
Archangel attacks them and Kurt teleports Fanto away.

Post by: Nekobaghira on August 17, 2016, 05:38:11 PM
Gambit's appearance was good overall until the Rogue stuff which had been his downfall in this story but in the long run  was not good for characterization. IMO

Gambit knows she is an Avenger, she is not with this team who are not Avengers, why he would fall for Mystique's trick is also disappointing and showcases how the books don't pay attention to each other and nor do they care as long as whatever is needed happens in the story.

The thing with Storm was very much in character.

I thought the same, but after seeing it, I think it's a good enough reason to draw his attention. However, rambling on and on like that just to be sucker punched? Mystique isnt a push over but she isnt freaking Iron Fist. I would have thought a guy that can keep pace with Daredevil, Blade, and Deadpool would be able to parry a non-super punch. I believe Bunn likes Gambit and would write him well in a team setting, but that was a bit off to me, otherwise I think the characterization was fine. Him being distracted by Rogue's sudden appearance alongside of someone she's had a history with is plausible. It does make sense, him being KOed by Mystique? Not so much...

From the writers prospective, he needed Gambit out of the way, along with the rest of the X-Men, and he could have gone another way and had Fantomex lay him out. Instead he wrote him being tricked. I can live with that, though I think he kind of put Mystique on a pedestal here with the one and done shot.

I played the game in two time periods. First time I choose Daredevil in some selectable heroes and earn Strom by chance. At that time Gambit was unplayable character that sells cards if I remember correctly. Then I got bored and uninstalled it. Second time in somewhere I read that players can get any hero they want and I installed for second time and got Gambit this time. I played the game with Gambit for weeks by in the end I got bored again.

Recently I played Contest of Champions after Gambit introduced. Played for two days got 10 characters and opened two Cajun crystals but non of them were Gambit. I hated that it all depends on luck. Uninstalled and never looked back.

yeah after the first mission you can choose a character to play as once you get to lvl 10 you unlock them and that is your character for the duration unless you buy others needless to say i chose Gambit straight away and never looked back  :)

It looked like Gambit had a very brief cameo in Civil War 5. There's a page with shots of some heroes who are not in the battle listening / watching it on the news. Top box is Matt Murdoch, then under him is Gambit wrapped in a towel having just come out of a shower. I think the box below him is Black Widow, and the bottom box was Hawkeye. No spoken words or anything, just a quick glimpse, where if you blinked, you missed it.

Marvel Editor Sana Amanat and The Mighty Captain Marvel writer Margeret Stohl joined ABC for their monthly (provided an issue actually makes it out) Civil War 2 live stream chat. Nothing too mind blowing was revealed, but Amanat did drop a subtle hint about Marvel’s plans for the X-Books and Inhumans:
"It will eventually lead into a big fractioning between those two parties, and then we’re gonna have a whole new line of X-Men and Inhumans titles. We’ve announced some of those titles, I think."

Bleedingcool reaction: Some?! We already know about X-Books such as X-Men Blue and X-Men Gold, Generation X, Iceman, Jean Grey, Cable, and Weapon X, with more details on those last two expected in the next few days. What other new X-Books could Marvel have planned? What’s Gambit been up to, anyway?

Wonder if he will make an appearance or is just fan bait to buy a cover. LOL

I think he will appear later.

But maybe he will appear in one page where he figures out that X-23 has problems.

I'm actually thinking about getting the old X-23 series since I've never read it if Gambit continues to not be a mainstay somewhere. Back issue bins are a wonderful thing.

Yeah, back issue bins are. Liu handled Gambit well. Probably a tad more mentoring-ish but good none the less. Some good Gambit and Wolvie moments too.

Jeremy Whitley about All-New X-Men MU#1

http://www.cbr.com/marvels-teen-heroes-battle-monsters-unleashed/

The solicits I read for “All-New X-Men” #1.MU suggested Laura’s story would be a fun investigative style tale in New Orleans.

Yeah, Laura is in the swamps of New Orleans and working with her good friend Gambit. They’re trying to figure out and track the thing that is killing his friends and fellow thieves.

Meanwhile, the rest of the team is in New Orleans enjoying Mardi Gras.

Gambit and Laura’s friendship goes back to Marjorie Liu’s fantastic “X-23” series. What’s it like having them reunite in your story?

It’s a lot of fun because it’s been a while since the end of “X-23.” I went back and reread all of Marjorie’s stuff, which was all great and it’s interesting to see how the kind of tone around stories with Laura has shifted. “X-23” was a pretty serious book, and “All-New Wolverine” is not exactly light hearted, but Laura has more of a sense of humor now. She’s a bit dryer and more well rounded. It’s because she’s grown so much as a character.

So reteaming her with Gambit was a lot of fun. He’ll get a chance to see how much she’s grown. He sort of took her under his wing in the “X-23” series.

To be fair, it didn't make sense how Gambit would be able get to Deadpool as quick as he needed to stop Quicksilver.

Deadpool, Spider-Man, Gambit, and Magneto versus the Uncanny Avengers is a pretty cool idea.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: cc008 on January 11, 2017, 11:53:14 AM
Of course, all of us here were hoping he'd be on the phone with Gambit, but Spider-Man makes much much more sense.  He quit in the first issue BECAUSE of Wade, and since then they've formed a fairly solid friendship. So it makes sense he'd call a friend he's currently in communication with. But yes, Deadpool, Spidey, Gambit, and Magneto VS All would be very fun to read. Obviously we know Remy's coming. Just not sure when yet.

I think in All-New Wolverine it was the biggest explosion from single card that I have ever seen. Even bigger ten in Gambit #3 by Nicieza.
Ofcourse we will see what kind of damage it will do.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch

yeah it was massive explosion, from one card and all, i think the little one called Remy from the ship to warn him, im sure he knows she has a healing factor and will survuve, i also think she knew what he was going to do as she told Tyger Tyger to get behind the desk.

Little clon of Wolverine (like her little sister) escapes from slaves ship with mobile phone and boat.
After this I think she calls Gambit for help. It wasn't shown on a panel. Just a guess.

Villain is using trigger scent on X-23 so she will kill Tiger Tiger in Madripoor.
One week later X-23 attacks Tiger Tiger. Litlle clon jumps on X from nowhere and tells that Laura will feel now more pain then she. (Gabby - little clon don't feel any pain at all). Then enters Gambit with greetings and throws 1 charged card into Laura and Gabby that destroyes the whole floor.
Explosion looks massive.

Its not a bad story ... I hope that helps with cost because $5 or close to it for one page is rough. LOL

As I said on CBR, if Origins Wolverine means nothing else anymore, we still know there IS a Gambit running around somewhere in that universe. It's only a matter of time before we see him  :gambit:

All-New X-Men #1.MU (Preview) with Gambit :gambit:

please please dont let him be talking in the third person

Nah I don't think he will be. He's just introducing himself to the readers haha. I'm curious when this takes place though in relation to All-New Wolverine. It's weird seeing him introduce himself to Laura twice like that.

Also, I kinda like the combination of his classic costume and Mann's design. Head sock ftw!

So it's been discovered that panels of Gambit have been posted, and continued to be posted, by RB Silva on his instagram. Could mean a number of things.. because they don't look like commissions.


EDIT- when I post the direct links, they come up unresponsive. Here's his instagram: https://www.instagram.com/rubens_bernardino/

This is definitely something out of a book.  But isn't Gambit going to appear in Uncanny Avengers soon?  And didn't this guy draw him in Uncanny already with that beanie? 

I'd love for Gambit to be in a team again though and, these are quite a few panels.  But I won't get my hopes up. 

Whatever it is, I hope we find out soon.

Larraz drew the issues that Gambit's appeared in so far. This looks a lot like his art but is by RB Silva.

Fingers crossed he's a rotating artist on Weapon X by Pak and Gambit is the last member. That's my wish for all of this.

I hope you're right. I'd love to see some Gambit/Domino or Gambit/Deathstrike action.

Also notice that right after the Gambit drawings is a drawing of Old Man Logan. Makes me hopeful that this isn't for UA.

ohhhh, the last time we saw that hat was in UA. In that silly smoochy thing. hmmm, it could be UA but like the rest I hope for Weapon X and that the hat just plain traveled from one artist to another. Interesting.

The reason I thought Wolverine (laura) .... was because of the vial and the story has something to do with the trigger scent, but I may be wrong.

I am sure that this art is not for All-New Wolverine.
Laura's arc with Gambit is ending in 2 issues witch I think are already drawn by other artist.
Kirk is new artist for All-New Wolverine from # 19.

As for UA it could be that editor used scans from UA 9 to show Gambit's current costume. And artist decided to left that cap or thought that it is a part of costume lol

The female character in the one picture looks to be either Rachel or Jean. OR someone else entirely.  But yeah, there is the OML sketch in there also, which makes me think this isn't UA. And there's a Psylocke sketch in there too. So I really don't know lol.

Hoping for Weapon X. Expecting a guest appearance somewhere.

I said it on CBR (I swear they lockup or delete one more post I'm done there. If I wanted to live in facist state I'd live in America... Wait a minute), if this an any clue that Gambit may be in Weapon-X, I wonder which one it will be. The clumsy push over that throws firecrackers or the guy that's taken down Super Skrulls, Wolverine, Sabertooth, GLADIATOR and took on the whole Starjammer crew solo?

Pak is writing and he did do an OK job with him during Storm's book, but people tend to lean when they have more than one toy. I have to admit. As much as I love Gambit, he hasn't been calibur of character he started out as.

forgot to add "Gladiator" to his list

Definitely not Rachel because it doesn't match her new Prestige look.

It honestly doesn't look like any particular character and the scene doesn't look like it would fit in any of the known X-books. I'm about ready to say it's nothing and the artist is just drawing stuff in his off-time. Even if it is more elaborate than a simple sketch.

Cannon fodder foot soldiers Don't count. We got plenty of that in the Asmus solo, mostly because he (Asmus) was denied access to like everyone outside of c-list non X-Men villains and HYDRA Nazi zombies. I say they are this because they seem to have matching battlesuits and their heads aren't displayed. Cannon fodder.

The problem is that Amsus wasn't writing him as the guy that's taken down Super Skrulls, Wolverine, Sabertooth, GLADIATOR and took on the whole Starjammer crew solo.

I loved Gambit/Hawkeye story in A+X but Gambit wasn't able to stop some frog monster with 52 charged cards. Asmus never showed his true agility or h2h skills in solo either.

No he didn't. He wrote Gambit in more of swashbucking Indiana Jones' style. He didn't have many instances to let the other side out, but again, he wrote within the vein he was allowed. The Gambit I'm referring to hasnt really been seen since like 96'. Asmus wrote a Gambit that was aware of how distracted he's gotten and how he was interested in rediscovering himself. Had he been able to finish out the run like he wanted, we may have gotten into more instances of Gambit being the Ragin Cajun.

17 issues is more then enough time to find a place to show his skills.

Issues 8 and 14 were the lowest for me.
I would change 8 or 14 for an issue with Gambit vs Dozen of Ninjas or mindless action anytime.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: cc008 on January 29, 2017, 04:28:38 PM
The thing about mindless action is you can't realize write it if you don't know how long your book is going to last. Marvel could have canceled Gambit at any moment. Asmus needed to tell a story. Whether it was the complete one he wanted to tell or not, he didn't have time to waste with splash pages and fight scenes.

I think you forgot he didnt know when his run was going to end. The last arc was just him tying up loose ends and it's the reason why we got like 2 or 3 filler issues in between arcs. It was all fly by the seat of his pants until he got direction. But yes, instead of that fairy land or Iron Patriot issues, I would have liked to see Gambit vs Ninjas.

I think Asmus knew how solo would end at the beginning or at least had a plan. At issue 14 we would have bo idea what was the main plot of this book.
After issue 16 it was clear that the whole run and main heists was to show that Gambit deserves to start his trial.

I remember in first interviews we Asmus told that in issue 6 we will see Gambit's telepathy resistance but in book we hadn't seen it.
I think it were supposed to be a scene where MI13 was doing Gambit's interrogation.
Also Asmus told that he cut out fighting scene from issue #2. I think he wasn't able to put everything in 20 pages.

But the truth is that if you write character as great h2h and agile then he always would be a great fighter in all arcs and you don't need to add 1 issue vs dozens of ninjas to show how good fighter he is.

I'd buy into a Deadpool/Gambit book by a writer of Bunn's talent! Heck you can make it a meta joke and continue to call it 'Deadpool V Gambit'. They'd still be working together faithfully, but routinely leave each other hanging, mostly comically. It can be deeper than just one upping each other. It wouldn't be that they don't "like" each other, but they have such a profound respect for the others ability to survive, they don't worry when the know the other is in a pinch.

Solid issue and nice to see Gambit not depicted as an idiot for once

Silva posted new pic on his instagram with Kitty Pryde.
So it seems he is working on X-Men Gold and Gambit will have cameo there.

I don't think that he will join team because all Gold membrrs has new costumes and Gambit has his current one.

Sad that Gambit won't be part of Weapon X but I am not surprised.
Also I am glad thay Gambit will at least appear in Gold. He wasn't in any flagship X-Men book for yeeeears.

All New X-Men #1 MU:

Aside from the third person, some odd wording and one dees - Gambit didn’t sound too bad. I suppose being in NO might be a factor.

I think the relationship between Remy and Laura was handled well. Not a bad appearance.

Interesting choice in the art for Gambit's powers. Made me think Legacy when Remy charged a machine and killed the telepath.

Edit: I thought Pickles the Bamf was humorous and that Gambit wanted a bamf made me laugh, expecially when Laura said the bamf eats like a horse.

It could be because I am out of touch with modern comics but I really enjoyed Gambit's appearance in All New X-Men. Though with all of the 'darlin', 'petite' and such, it felt like his last line should have been him using her name. He didn't really do much, which kind of makes sense. When you have a friend that is par excellence in an activity, sometimes it is enjoyable to watch them work. It is also a bit of a relief because it never seems that any writers really think about what Master Thief means and so Remy can feel underwhelming at times.

Actually looking forward to the Wolverine appearance. Looks good. Not too enthused about the art style and his coat is way too short, but art and Marvel, especially non-Bendis X-Men, dont really go together these days. It's like they try to find ways to save money, and the easiest way is not keep the better artist on payroll.

Ah okay, thank you!

Super hero movies like this one are kinda risky when looking for a director. Because the movie can either be a passion project and the director will take it seriously and it'll be great, or they'll just be looking to cash in on a super hero film and it'll be poopy.

Only way for a passion project to work is to have a producer, star and director on the same page. Typically one person has two of the aforementioned titles which cuts down on the interference, but it's not looking like this. Channing is a producer but not the executive producer. He's also not made any mention of it in almost a year now? No bueno.

True, but when Deadpool and even Logan were less than a year out of production start, there was way more content and quotes from the actors than we've gotten from Channing's silence.

Would it be terrible if this movie went ahead without Tatum?  I mean, he's a massive draw for people to buy tickets so there's that, and he loves the character, so there's also that.  But if he pulled out and they still went ahead with the film, do you think it would suffer as a result?

Post by: bigstupidjellyfish on February 06, 2017, 11:09:12 AM
Movie wouldn't happen without Tatum.

Honestly, the only people that would be pleased are the ones that think he has no acting ability and would rather Gaspard Ulliel to take over (despite him not having actual acting ability). Those people are a minority and I think the movie would suffer.

Agreed. He's the only thing that adds legitimacy to the project. The original script was supposed to really good, but thats gone, then we had a couple good directors, but thats up in smoke too so...

EXCLUSIVE: Gambit Returns on X-Men Gold #4 Cover Art

Looove this cover :gambit:
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: Spoonz on February 07, 2017, 10:51:50 AM
Can't argue about the cover, it's stunning.  What's that story arc that had Gambit leading a team with Jean Grey, Beast, Cable and somebody else?  That was Uncanny X-Men, no?  That had the same thing with Gambit holding cards of his team mates.  And also Uncanny X-Men 350, where he's holding the cards in front of his face.  It's like a mix of those two covers. 

So this is that instagram art we've been seeing? 

Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but can we be done with guest appearances?  Don't get me wrong I'm grateful, I'd rather guest appearances over limbo.  But it would be nice for him to just be on a team again. 

And what do you guys think, Gambit doing the flip-flop thing that Marvel loves with his character and being the bad guy in this arc?

Yup, we agree again. Don't trust much about this book at all really. I'm probably going to wait to see what his role is before purchasing. If it's a one and done, I probably won't bother because the book isn't THAT appealing to me. If he sticks around, then I'll probably pick it up.

They recognize the fact that he's taken on a man in Wolverine that has beaten Captain America to within an inch of his life, and freakin' Gladiator, our closest comparison to Superman (before we got Sentry and Hyperion) but say Gambit's arrogance or overconfidence got the best of him which led to his defeat? I can count on one hand with three fingers to spare where I can remember him being overconfident in battle, it's hardly a character trait worth highlighting when trying to justify that Avengers fluff piece of a story. Nick Fury says he's one of the best hand to hand fighters he's ever seen, Iron Man's computers can't keep him targeted, he catches Spiderman off guard (HIS POWER IS TO NOT LET YOU CATCH HIM OFF GUARD!) while fighting him hand to hand, and fights Daredevil and Blade to draws; but Captain America can fight him while not even paying attention to him?

I think the point they were making is that it illustrates all the things that make Gambit great as well as his flaws.  Here he is going up against the iconic Captain America and he doesn't flinch.  He's the same cocky dude with the swagger that says to him he can take down the leader of the Avengers.  At the same time that cockiness and swagger is what ultimately leads to his defeat as he doesn't quite get the charge right to completely knock out Cap.

From an objective viewpoint, I can see their point and actually agree with it for the most part.  It's always bothered me a bit that Gambit seemingly knows the exact durability of his opponents to know that using 52 cards on Gladiator is going to merely knock him out rather than kill him outright.  No matter how skilled someone else, they can't really know the full limits of an unknown opponent.  So without knowing exactly how durable Cap is, it's entirely possible for him to get the charge wrong particularly if we assume that Gambit is going to err on the side of caution as he generally doesn't want to kill anyone.

Why I ultimately still hate this scene is how dismissive Cap is of Gambit.  I think at one point he's on the phone shooting the sh*t with Iron Man and he acts like Gambit is no real threat to him.  Considering Gambit could easily have gotten the charge wrong by putting too much in it, I think that attitude from Cap makes no sense as Cap could have easily been killed.

So I agree with the author's larger point but I think it ignores the fact that the scene is poorly executed.

With that said, we all know he also wasn't trying to kill Cap... at least, I don't think so, but I'm not sure how you can turn someone's shirt into a bomb and not expect to kill them (comic book logic). I'm not against him losing. It makes sense, and to be honest, the fight could have gone either way. However, I believe it would have made more sense for Gambit, who's only trying to slow Captain America down, to retreat once he detonated his clothes. Him getting knocked out like some chump was just jarring. Going a little further, Captain America has been around so long, he is an icon, but up until that point he was never some invincible force. That was amped up thanks to Marvel's success with the Avenger's movie. I just sucks the X-Men got the short end of the stick. Just like they are with the Inhumans (this crossover seems a bit better written). The X-Men seem to be the stepping stones for the company.

Yes I agree his walking up to Cap without any sort of caution was pretty dumb.  I can at least pretend that is just Gambit being a bit to swaggerific there in thinking he won.  The way Cap acted like Gambit was no big deal, calling Iron Man during the fight or whatever it was is what was ridiculous as well as I would have liked to see perhaps a bit of an exchange at the end there before Cap took him down rather than the one punch KO.

It was an alright issue - I thought the relationship between Remy and Laura was handled well. Overall, I feel like the trigger scent thing is bleh. It's like a rehash of Liu's run with it - maybe there will be a conclusion or something. But with Jean's help it may not be used again anyway. *shrug*

Full of a lot old comic book tropes, talking about actions while their performing them, constantly saying each other's names, tons of thought bubbles and narration boxes. Not to mention it the issue number!

So some of the people he's matched or beat in hand to hand are; Daredevil, Blade, Wolverine, Spiderman, Sabertooth, effing Gladiator, Deadpool, tons of trained assassins... Gets punked by Fantomex and dropped by Mystique with a single punch... Modern X-Men. Gotta love it.

James Mangold expressed interest to possibly continue with X-23 in the movies... possibly her own stand alone. How would you guys feel about Gambit possibly being introduced in THAT movie? If it were to come to fruition. If his own movie continues to be stuck in the mud at least.

Yeah, we have been quiet. LOL

I don't know ... I guess it would be okay if Gambit was introduced via X-23 ... but tbh - the thought of her getting a film doesn't appeal to me. It's all riding on the film Logan ... and that Hugh Jackman is done with Wolverine. There is no replacement for him ... so X-23 is an attempt to keep that "type" of character going without him.

Angry girl movies ... yay ... <sarcasm

But what if that doesn't happen? Would you rather never see him in the movies at all? It would make me want to see an X-23 movie even more if he was in it.

I like Liu's Gambit but it is not that Gambit that I want to see as introduced Gambit. It is good as character progression.

If too choose X-23 solo or nothing then ofcourse x-23.
But I still thibk that we will see Gambit movie.

I think we'll see one too, but if it's having a hard time getting off the ground now, I don't see why introducing him in another movie would be a bad thing. If anything people will be more excited to see said movie if Gambit's there. Aside from Wolverine, Gambit is one of the most well-recognizable X-Men by the general public.

They decided to introduce him in solo because Tatum wanted to explain who Gambit is at first. And wanted to do it in solo.

I am 100 percent sure Gambit originally were supposed to appear as horseman in Apocalypse and later they changed him to Psylocke.
And I am glad with that. I really don't like Apocalypse and I doubt that in it Singer could do justice for Gambit or even his skills.

The chances of getting a Gambit solo actually improved with the success of Logan. Well, at least critical success.

It seem New Mutants and Deadpool 2 both will start shooting in May. A lot of rumours that Apocalypse sequel will start filming this summer. So these 3 movies are taking  3 X slots for 2018.

So if Gambit will ever be made it seems we won't see it earlier then the beginning of 2019.

Would love to see Gambit in X team movie but not excited to see him in past with X kids.

I'm not... this screams "I'm Gambit, and I cant take care of myself" The villain disregarding Gambit's card and the picture of him being blown back is starting to make more sense. You'd think someone that writes on Arrow would appreciate a more visceral character like Gambit, seeing as he doesn't have one on his current cast. I disqualify Nightcrawler because of his personality and Wolverine due to him being ... old.

I like the cover and I liked that RB Silva is drawing the issue. I'm a little apprehensive of the content hinted at because I just want Gambit to be shown as confident.  If he has a lead on this new villain and gets caught in snag and the X-Men find out, fine. But don't sacrifice his competence as a master thief, h2h specialist, and grown ass man.

If he's written well and sticks around then I'll gladly pick the book up.

Thing is.. I'm not unrealistic. I'm not asking for Gambit to save the day or be some sort of symbol of awesomeness. But I am requesting a degree competence that is comparable to the people around him. Gambit is not a screw-up that needs to be saved every time we see him... I'm just tired of him being portrayed as some kind of loser, third-rate character. This guy along with a handful of others helped keep Marvel afloat during his first decade of existence. Just sucks that these old-guard writers continue to dump on him just because theyd rather focus on other characters. I'd rather him stay in limbo than keep popping up just to make others look better. There is an entire generation of readers that have seen Gambit be what we know him to be.

I understand your frustration.  Gambit is drawn awesomely, he looks cool, the book seems to focus on him, sounds great. 

BUT it does say that he needs saving and that what he does best is get in over his head.  We can't blame anybody for being cautious, Gambit really is written as a bit of a punching back these days. 

I'll be cautiously optimistic though because what else can we do at this point?

Super tragic story but it still find it hard to believe that in any reality Wolverine was able to wipe out each and every X-Man in a single go... I'd buy him tracking them down individually over time but that's even a hard sell because the longer it'd take the more prepared they'd be. Just too many powerful characters to fell by a slasher IMO.

Sure thing!  For those who don't read OML, which seems like mostly everyone, the next arc will be Logan basically traveling through his past. I'm REALLY hoping when the time comes in the point of Logan's past, we'll see him interact with Gambit. I think OML and Gambit together would be so much fun and hysterical because YOU KNOW Remy would rag on him for being so much older.  I know, I know, it's just another guest appearance and a wish and we haven't done real well with those recently.. but I'd still enjoy it.

I know a lot of this is just more words and we've heard these types of words before... but the comment relating Tatum to Gambit and Reynolds to Deadpool and Jackman to Wolverine is EXTREMELY refreshing to hear, encouraging, and major respect points towards Tatum.

It's become a passion project for him and that's the best way to make the movie. I wouldn't be surprised if he got advice from Reynolds or Jackman to hang in there and keep pushing for it. Glad it's working.

“Yeah, it is going to happen, and it’s just a question…," Kinberg began, pausing to choose his next words carefully.
"Channing is—in the best possible way—as committed and as rigorous about getting the character right as Ryan was with Deadpool and as Hugh was with Logan on this movie, and so it’s been about finding a filmmaker and someone who can capture that voice and hand it off to Channing. But he’s been a really critical part of the process, and we’re hoping that the movie—probably given his schedule—will be ready to go this year and probably shoot next year.”

I hope that's exactly what it is because it gives us something different from Wolverine movies, different from Deadpool movies, and different from the main X-Men and New Mutants movies, but still in the same universe. And that's partly what'll make it succeed.

They let Deadpool be Deadpool and and Wolverine be Wolverine, both with directors and stars that wanted to make a movie that displayed the character, and it turned out great in both instances. Gambit is a playboy ladies man that supposedly has a list of past flings that far surpasses all. He blows things up by touching them, is as agile as anyone and grew up around magic, ancient beings, and deadly assassins and eventually becomes a X-Man. The movie can be an absolute joyride. It can also be the first mainstream comic book movie that goes the full action-thriller route with enough sexual content that'll make Basic Instinct blush...

That's a complete exaggeration on my part, but it can really be something the X-Men haven't seen in the same vein that Deadpool and Logan were able to be.

If it's an origin story, there is probably plenty of violence in clashing with the Assassin's Guild and if he runs into Sabretooth and the Marauders. I suppose you can have Candra in his origin and maybe Genevieve depending on how far it progresses but I would say his ladies man status was post Bella not before as I would think it should be Bella dying that causes him to give up on love and become the ladies man we know and love.

So personally I would like to see a progression in the movies as it's the harsh and tragic upbringing that makes the carefree ladies man less superficial as you realize that's part of his coping mechanism.  I think you lose some of the depth of the character if you don't show that if this is meant to be an origin story.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: cc008 on February 26, 2017, 09:26:06 AM
There could definitely be a higher amount of violence if it were an origin story. The assassins and thieves aren't exactly warm and fuzzy... especially towards each other. And the violence can get ramped up more if Sabretooth shows up. I would love for Liev Schreiber to reprise the role.  He's another way to fill the void that'll be left by Jackman's Wolverine.  You don't need Wolverine for Sabretooth, because we have Gambit  :gambit:

I'd like to see Fox keep all the grittier x-movies R-rated.. or at least attempt to. Logan, the Deadpool films, X-Force, and Gambit. And then have the main x-men films and new mutants pg-13.  I think that would be a good balance. I'm not saying Gambit NEEDS to be R.. but they don't need THAT big of a budget for a Gambit film and they'd be able to take more liberties with an R rating.

What if they make Sabretooth a recurring character? But that would assume that it gets more than one movie. The first movie and can be an origin movie, revolving around NOLA but by the final act of the movie is in Paris (or at least an equivalent, perhaps NY instead). The Genevieve story might be too convoluted if Belle is going to be present as an interest as well, so I guess the story can be tweaked. Perhaps Bella can accompany him on the heist (by choice or not), gets caught up and takes Genevieve's place as Sabretooth's captive. Now the question is, "who dies?" we follow the story and have Gambit save his brother or Belle? Being the cause or even involved in her death/murder would be enough to get him banished from NOLA imo, and even motivate a "death sentence" for him enough to be pursued by the Assassin's guild or at least a pissed off family member or two...

Assuming it gets a second movie, we could pick there, Gambit on the road alone and full brooding mode taking whatever job comes his way, powers flipping out all the way. He ends up taking up jobs he shouldn't and comes across a guy (Sinister) that can help him solve his issue and in return wants a errand run which does or doesnt lead to the Morlock Massacre and involves the Marauders or just Sabretooth. The final act would be him trying to stop what he initiated single handedly, which can undoubtedly very bloody and violent.

I kind of hope they do the first movie (provided it becomes a franchise), like Deadpool, in the sense that it's not a straight up chronological origin story. I hope they bounce around a little bit. Like maybe show Remy's involvement with the TG and then flash back to when he was a baby for a minute or flash back to when he was younger and the reason behind why he throws cards (I love that).

Introduce Sabretooth as the main villain, again hoping it'll be Schreiber because he would definitely bring some more star power to the film, which can't hurt. Then as the films transition from one to the other, we get reintroduced to Sinister and learn how fascinated he is with Remy's DNA. I doubt we'll ever get any of the New Son stuff, just like I doubt we'll ever see Deadpool and the Mithras story adapted. But there's more than enough story to make it a trilogy. And even if they decide not to go that way, I wouldn't be upset with getting a solo film and then have him added to the cast of the main x-films or the x-force films.

Who am I kidding? I'm ready for anything at this point.

Kind of keeping my fingers crossed that he has a falling out with Kitty or something.. drawing from that one IG post from Silva where she looks mad at him.. and then similarly to how Polaris recruited him for X-Factor, Emma Frost recruits him for Uncanny X-Men. Or whatever they want to call it.

I am not a big fan of Emma, really. And I don`t want her to lead team. She looks crazy

I like idea with flashbacks. It worked great for Deadpool and was easy to move fast from comdey to action or drama moments.

Yeah, I mean, it doesn't have to be exactly like Deadpool.. but I like the non-linear aspect of it.

And that's fair... but I think if it works out the way I hope... she'll be forming a team because she knows she needs to round up a group of seasoned veterans to continue do the work she feels necessary, while also knowing the people she recruits can keep her in check. Psylocke and Polaris can do that. So can Havok (the only one she's been open with) and Gambit is a much better people person than a lot give him credit for.

Emma`s team will be reminding the bad times.

I like the flashback idea. There's been enough 'origin' stories and he doesn't really need one, being a mutant and all.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: purplevit on February 27, 2017, 06:33:18 PM
For me his origin story was always more about Guilds war and  love with Bella and not about him being a mutant.

Mutant origin is mostly red eyes and that he was stolen from hospital.

Post by: remydat on February 27, 2017, 07:21:50 PM
What if they make Sabretooth a recurring character? But that would assume that it gets more than one movie. The first movie and can be an origin movie, revolving around NOLA but by the final act of the movie is in Paris (or at least an equivalent, perhaps NY instead). The Genevieve story might be too convoluted if Belle is going to be present as an interest as well, so I guess the story can be tweaked. Perhaps Bella can accompany him on the heist (by choice or not), gets caught up and takes Genevieve's place as Sabretooth's captive. Now the question is, "who dies?" we follow the story and have Gambit save his brother or Belle? Being the cause or even involved in her death/murder would be enough to get him banished from NOLA imo, and even motivate a "death sentence" for him enough to be pursued by the Assassin's guild or at least a pissed off family member or two...

Assuming it gets a second movie, we could pick there, Gambit on the road alone and full brooding mode taking whatever job comes his way, powers flipping out all the way. He ends up taking up jobs he shouldn't and comes across a guy (Sinister) that can help him solve his issue and in return wants a errand run which does or doesnt lead to the Morlock Massacre and involves the Marauders or just Sabretooth. The final act would be him trying to stop what he initiated single handedly, which can undoubtedly very bloody and violent.

Yeah I guess it depends on how quickly they progress through his origins.  I figured the first hour to hour and 15 minutes would be the Thieves and Assassin's Guild and would end with the wedding and exile.  Not sure it makes sense to show that for the whole movie.  

Then the next hour to hour and 15 would be his wandering and encountering Genevieve and Sabretooth.  I would probably depart from the comics a bit and have all three being a part of the Heist team maybe with Scalphunter, Claire, and a couple of non-mutants.  At this point they mutants in the group are hiding their powers from each other unaware that others are mutants as well.  Gambit is the playboy of the group while Sabretooth secretly loves Genevieve.  Long story short a heist goes wrong and Gambit has to choose between saving Sabretooth and Genevieve and chooses Sabretooth because trying to save Genevieve would have been riskier and more dangerous with Sabretooth.  So he plays the odds in trying to save Sabretooth first.  At that point Sabretooth ends up revealing his mutant powers letting Gambit know he should have gone after Genevieve instead of him.  They rush to save Genevieve but arrive too late resulting Sabretooth attacking Gambit revealing Gambit's mutant powers and setting up their rivalry.  That could be the climatic battle as those two battle it out with Gambit eventually winning but still feeling incredibly guilty.

That could then set the stage for the second movie in which Gambit is a loner now and just does jobs on his own with his powers starting to flare out of control.  That is how he ends up with Sinister and in exchange for Sinister's help, Sinister asks him to lead a heist team to steal something of importance from some bad people.  This team includes Scalphunter and Sabretooth but Gambit still feeling guilty over Genevieve and indebted to Sinister decides to agree to this request and hence that is how he ends up aiding the Marauders only later finding out those alleged bad people were the Morlocks and then the big battle is him taking them all on to no avail.  The movie can end with him wounded and saving Marrow.

In a big budget blockbuster, probably not as those tend to be feel good movies.  In modest budget action thriller then I don't see why not as those tend to have more twists and turns.  As long as Gambit does his fair share of ass kicking then taking a loss isn't too bad.  In your scenario it could just be that he defeats Sabretooth but then isn't aware his healing factor.  In my scenario, he would be taking on all the Marauders by himself so he can have a good showing against them and still lose.

I don't know if you have enough material there for both of them to be standalone movies.  You could probably have an entire movie focused on New Orleans and the Guilds but I think the Genevieve story probably needs to be part of some larger story.  It's not a love story but essentially a story of a con man getting someone to fall in love with him in order to steal from her all ending in her death.  We don't care all that much in the comics because we barely knew Genevieve and she is simply a plot device to move Gambit's character along but in a movie devoted to this story where the character of Genevieve gets a lot of screen time, I think it would turn off audiences.

I think Julian and Candra and Guilds must be villains in first movie. Sinister only to appear as Essex and should stay in shadows. No marauders.

Then in second movie let Gambit to join X-Men.
MM and marauders must be a secret. Sabretooth in mansion who knows secrets tells Rogue in flashbacks about Genevieve.
Genevieve story is only to build tention to Gambit/Rogue. Fights Sinister at the end with X-Men. MM and Marauders secrets revelead.
Left to die in Antarctica or changed to smth more logical but Remy won't stay with X-Men.

In third origin is revealed. He unites Guilds and fights someone like New Sun but not from alt reality Gambit.

Team X movies in future or X-Force between solos.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: remydat on February 28, 2017, 03:18:59 PM
Hmm, I think I prefer his solo movies to not deal with any of the X-men team stuff.  Let that be handled in the team films.  His solo should be about his origins or after he joins the X-men and if he still has solo movies then they should be about his time away from the X-men thieving.

You also have to consider the timing of when all these movies are coming out.  Right now we are looking at 2019 for the first Gambit film so most likely not until 2021 for a second Gambit film.  I know we didn't find out in the comics about his role in the MM until after he joined the team but my concern in waiting in the live films is that the gap between movies is so large that you'd literally be waiting like 7-10 years from now before we got to the the Mutant Massacre if it wasn't covered early in the main X-men films and/or a Gambit film.

So I think they are two realistic avenues for the Mutant Massacre.  The first would be the Mutant Massacre should be handled in the next X-men film told from the perspective of the X-men.  That movie should drop in 2018 or 2019 so right before or right after the first Gambit movie.  In that movie, the only villains we ever see are Sinister and the Marauders with perhaps an after credits scene teasing Storm bringing Gambit to the X-Mansion.  If this happens before the first Gambit film then you could have the Gambit film be Gambit recounting the story of his life to the X-men after being introduced to them via Storm.  Then you would probably have an X-men film in like 2020 or 2021 where Gambit is on a full member of the team as well as the second Gambit film where his relationship with Sinister and the Marauders and his role in the Mutant Massacre is revealed.  Perhaps after the climatic battle with the Marauders, Gambit encounters an amnesiac Storm which is how he ends up joining the X-men and leaves the audience knowing that both the X-men and Gambit were involved in the MM but without the Gambit and the X-men knowing about each other's involvement.

The other option IMO would be leaving the MM out of Gambit solo films but instead have the Mutant Massacre as part of a main X-men film but told from two different perspectives ie form the perspective of the X-men and from perspective of Gambit.  In this scenario then the 2nd Gambit film could be about his meeting Storm and their adventures together prior to him joining the X-men with again neither side aware of each other's role.

In the end, my point is I think you need to tackle it earlier because the longer you wait, the less likely it gets tackled at all just due to the fickle nature of movie making and the long time periods involved.  Hoping for it to be covered in like the 3rd Gambit movie or some the X-men movie in like 2024 is a bit wishful thinking IMO.

Well not sure the X-men franchise will stay in the past or even exist in their current form.  Seems like Deadpool, X-force, and New Mutants will all be in the present so I doubt they leave the X-men in the past.

I didn't think that was confirmed but just speculated on since Storm was suppose to be in it.  Then again so is Sunspot and last we saw him he was with Adult Storm in DOFP portrayed by a younger looking actor so I know they said people could be born earlier in the this new timeline but that's like a 20-30 year different in ages it seems.  Unless they just ignore that version of Sunspot.

No I think made the comment that New Mutants was in the present and so Purp was saying he thought it was the same time period as the main franchise not that Gambit would be in it.

Separate from that we were speculating that he would be in the main X-movies at some point but that would most likely be in future movies not the movies coming up in the next year or two.

I would think that the most logical step would be that within the next 2 movies (for each franchise) or so New Mutants, X-men, and X-force will all exist within the same time period.  In that scenario Reynolds can be the guy they build X-force around and Tatum can play the Wolverine role for the X-men team but given the run rate of the movies that's something like 5 years away or so in Tatum's case.

What if they do go ahead with 2nd movie ending with the massacre, but Gambit, somewhat succeeding, but not really, is dying of his wounds and is rescued by the X-Men? Either after the fight, or at the last minute saving him from a deathblow. Kind of end the movie there as a crazy cliffhanger moment we wouldnt have to wait 2 years to see continued (hopefully they'd either begin or already start filming the team movie at that point). It could cut right after they save him or with him waking up in the X-Mansion (Like Wolverine in DoFP) with let's say, whoever's playing Rogue standing over him (que insane theater cheering) or Wolverine, Beast etc. Either way, they'd have no way of knowing his involvement and not being able to read his mind, it wouldnt be revealed he's the one that brought the Marauders to the tunnels. Something that can play as a subplot in an X-Men team film, possibly with Sinister as the "big bad". I think this would work about as good the Wolverine/Striker conflict in X2, especially if Fox moves forward with throwing all their support behind Tatum as the centerpiece like they wanted before Deadpool. The X-Men save Gambit, and they bond with him as they nurse him back to health, fight alongside him, just to discover he's responsible for the very mess they rescued him from, not to mention dozens of mutant deaths and guilty of lying because he'd have to come up with some sort of story that shines a positive light as to why he was there in the first place.

I guess my only question would be how would they end up saving him and not realize he was somehow involved.  He's doesn't really fit the morlock type so what would be his reason for hanging around sewers?  Unless you change the location of the massacre in a way that makes Gambit and innocent bystander passing by.

The only other issue for me is that I would want Gambit to join the team with people being suspicious as that was part of his appeal ie whether the team could really trust him.  So naturally if they find him around the massacre, it would make that the thing for them to suspicious about rather than being suspicious about his being a thief.

 I really hope the mutant massacre is not touched in the movie even with a 100 foot pole. the event is too dark and is a recon of a story that was done better the first time by Claremont. They needed Gambit to have a secret and they chose the massacre.
Gambit should be introduced in a X-Men team movie that is hopefully well received. I am a bit nervous for Fox to go straight into a Solo, unless the movie is so good it will sell it self.

Without a straight answer I'm suspicious. They're all like "yeah check out x-men gold" but they didn't say yes he's joining a team which to me screams guest appearance. They don't like to actually say no when it comes to Gambit.

That's why he was the 'Prince of Thieves". He would over charged a lock... Or knowing that could happen, use the right tool. Be it a tool or hacking...

Back in the early 90s, he was super smart {Knowing Cajun, French, German, English and Japanese INCLUDING doing an convincing spy Old Kings London English accent as 'James Lord'.}. The man is f***ing smart and more than tr-lingual. According to 90s area stuff- {35, I dun know off old 94 stats book.} Gambit is 6'3, power of 8.6, agility of 9.8, psy power of 6.4, int of 8.9, int of 9.3. Yeah. The man was smart, and powerful. Smart enough to not draw attention as that he liked his work. That he taught to Stormy.

Screwed up or made the biggest U-turn in recent history in terms of a book's focus? Gambit seems to be regulated to fodder. Within his own solo and headlining team books he has most of his interactions with original characters and others we never see again. We know Asmus was denied access to several characters, and I still don't know what happened with PAD. We thought he was going somewhere with the Polaris relationship but that deadened with him assaulting her face like some creep... After being ignored for 2 or 3 issues. PAD didn't just let me down with his portrayal of Gambit, his whole story was just spinning it's wheels putting way too much attention on pet characters and garbage time stories. I don't have a problem with slow burn story telling. But at least focus it around characters people care about.

I don't mind slow burn story telling either, but the problem is it's damn near impossible for a writer to write a slow burn these days, because before they know it, they have to wrap up their story before the upcoming event which will either result in the relaunch or cancellation of the book.  Not defending PAD.  He should have realized he wasn't going to have 150+ issues on the new volume of X-Factor.

Agreed. And while I enjoyed the character style story telling, there wasn't enough action for the most part or very poorly ended stuff or just too convenient type endings. E.g. Georgia's parents thing. He would never have been allowed that long of a run with those sales. The volume that ended prior to All New had poor sales as well.

Favorable critical support helped carry the previous volume longer than it should have, especially when he dove into the Rictor/Shatterstar relationship. He's currently writing Spider-Man 2099, and that isnt doing all that well either... but thats freaking Spider-Man. It's as likely to be canceled as Captain Marvel.

Didn't PAD said that All New X-Factor story will be touched on Spider-man 2099 when the cancellation confirmed? Even he used the half of the final issue with it. I think that he just wanted to transfer the remaining readers to his favorite book.

I do like their idea of Sinister and Gambit as mentor and unwilling protege.  It would be kind of cool if they built a Gambit franchise around Sinister being his long term antagonist as it would give it something a lot of the other X-men films don't have.  I suppose you could say Charles vs Magneto but Magneto flirts with being good too much whereas this would be more of a pure good vs evil with the evil continually pushing Gambit into bad decisions.

That was a fun read! The Sinister angle seems like it would be the most rewarding for Fox, story wise. It would give them a chance to present a schemer and experimenter whose depravity surpasses, from the movies, Stryker's.

It would be pretty awesome if they went for a cleverness and not just persistence in a hero. They could do something like having the Thirty Six Stratagems as the basis of Remy's action, revealing it at the end sort of like Ocean's 11; a quick series of scenes showing the prior reckless actions, that Gambit is prone to, all had a purpose. If they have the book in the original Chinese, they have a quick way of showing two different characters took the time to learn another language; Gambit and whomever reads it. Which would be a cool way to introduce another of the X-Men.

I think the writer of the article has been lurking around here the CBR Gambit thread. Too many similar ideas. But it was oddly positive for CBR written Gambit-piece. I kept waiting for "but... " part that often accompanies adulation of the character.

I think they have to be careful not to put in too many characters and relationships in one film. There is so much material to work with that it's hard to lose sight and make it a mess. I'd go for the Sinister story with flashbacks of his history with his family and the guilds. And that leading into a new story in a sequel, tying in with the X-Men.

Of course. The Spider-Man movies have fallen victim to that time and time again. But if we got like.. Liev Schreiber as Sabretooth in one or two movies. And then someone like Brosnan (only because of speculation am I using his name) as Sinister in one or two movies with only a little overlap.. It would help promote the movie for sure.

I always thought Sinister should have been the X-Mens Nick Fury/ Agent Coleson, in that he's what links all the movies together. A good villain can be resilient, never really defeated or perhaps never really even engaged. Essex could have been behind the scenes pulling strings and even when having to enter the fray, not just end up "defeated". Mutants being what they were in the Fox universe, barely known until First Class, it would have fit for him be a shadow figure manipulating a group of people that don't really exist.

People are saying that Bunn could be the writer on this.  

Well, there's no evidence to suggest that so it's guesswork but folks on those forums are good at their guesswork.  But if it is Bunn, then chances of that being Gambit have increased!  

I've also just noticed that if you look at what folk are assuming is Gambit's staff, you can see the outline of his knuckles where he's holding on to it.  Classic that, him holding on to his staff and sort of leaning on it.  And is that his trenchcoat between OML's legs there?

Title: Re: Gambit Watch

That's disappointing, guys.

Do we still think that's Gambit? It still looks like a staff and trench coat. Although I thought rogues hair was his.

Man that was a blow to the chest.

Edit:  I should elaborate, since I'd just woken up and I was on my phone. 

So yeah, having Gambit on two teams would be awesome, Purp (although I'm not convinced Gold is more than a guest appearance for a few issues).  And to be honest, I wouldn't even mind having Rogue and Gambit on a team together if I trusted writers to make it work!  Duggan did alright with the two of them being a bit flirty but not having any angst.  So if it gets handled that way?  Fine, I'm down.  Asmus' take on the pair?  Awesome, let's do it. 

BUT aside from those two writers, they're handled awfully together.  Throw Mystique in there?  Yeah not so good.  Oh well, let's wait and see then. 
Title: Re: Gambit Watch

My guess this book will be relaunched Uncanny.
Archangel, Psylocke and Mystique stays from previous roster.
I am sure it is Gambit on cover down right.

Rogue can be in 2 books, teen Jean and Cyke are in 2 books,  Logan in 4 or 5, so Gambit can be in 2 books too.

I think we saw too many sketches with Gambit for Gold for it to be just a cameo.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: Spoonz on March 08, 2017, 07:03:50 AM
I think for me the thought of Gambit being in 2 ongoing titles is too good to be true.  Happy to be proved wrong though. 

As for Gold, well I think yeah it'll be more than a cameo, when he's in it I think he'll be prominently featured.  But there just isn't much to indicate that he'll remain as a permanent member. 
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: cc008 on March 08, 2017, 08:11:06 AM
I think his appearances in Gold will help set up this new book.  And then it'll run as a sister title of sorts to Gold.. except better because the roster (even with Rogue, for those who hate her) is already infinitely better than the one in Gold lol.

I'm thinking OML sees how Kitty treats Gambit (this is just me spit balling and using the RB Silva posts as a basis) and is annoyed by it, so he recruits him for a separate team.

That's still has to be Gambit's outline... but I'm not excited at the idea of him being slipped underneath Rogue like that... and I'm a Romy fan! You're barely going to see him at all, if he's there. And if it's not him. THEY DID THAT @##$ ON PURPOSE. That outline better not disappear into a freaking pipe or something. That line of blackness is still too distinct to be anyone else unless intentionally placed.  And typically splash covers are representative of the focus of the book. The less you see the character, the less usage they will have in said book... unless you're Mike Carey. Then you're allowed to basically do whatever you want, despite covers and solicit summaries. It's crazy how this went from 'really cool' to 'wtf'. Why the @#@$ is Mystique an X-Man?

It looks like behind OML is Gambit and whoever (Betsy?  Deadpool?) both on their haunches either side, then Rogue and Mystique (boooooo!) standing behind them and then Cable and please god no but probably Fantomex standing up behind them.  

By the way, this is a very big team.

Well end of Wolverine game out and pretty much nothing in it for a Gambit fan unless you like beans.  Having seen the whole arc now, pretty much a waste of an appearance but par for the course for Marvel these days when it comes to Gambit.  Although X-23 is probably my second favorite character right now so it was worth it if you are interested in her.  Otherwise, no buy if you are only interested in Gambit.

Who knows? We don't even have the title of this comic yet, but I'm sure it's an ongoing.

I hope Deadpool is in this book and Marvel goes ahead with that rumored Deadpool/Rogue relationship. Free Gambit up to compete with Warren for Psylocke. *sigh* Marvel's much more likely to ride nostalgia with Betsy/Warren and Romy crap though.

All complaining aside though, this must be an ongoing since they wouldn't do this much fanfare for a limited or mini.  AND this is Gambit finally on a team with A-List characters in a book that looks like it will be a central focus.  Let's at least be happy about that for now and hope they don't screw it up :)

True ... and its not an awful line either. I actually like several of the team members.

Gambit (of course)
Psylocke
Bishop
Archangel
OML (would prefer the one I like the best - but .... on the other hand) - the jokes Gambit may make could be hilarious.



I'm really excited about this cast... except for Fantomex and Mystique. But the fact that we have 4 stealth-based characters, 5 if you count OML, kinda shows where this may be headed. Soule can hit or miss, big miss if you count IvX, I just hope he can juggle a cast this size. No character her is a "support" type. They are all frontline action.

Fantomex noooooo!  Dude sounds like a feminine hygiene product!

I have mixed feelings.  Some of this cast is balls out awesome, some of it really isn't.  I'm looking at you, Fantotampax and Mystique. 

But if we're lucky then we get some cool Gambit and Bishop interaction, or Gambit and Betsy.  I really hope this writer is down with his character research because Gambit and Bishop especially have awesome history together. 

Anyway, I've only read the first line of that Marvel article and it's like "the hardest hitting mutants!" and we're sitting here with freakin' Mystique and Fantomex!!!  Lies, I tell ya.

Not a fan of Soule but who knows maybe he will surprise me in a good way with hid Gambit.

Then I hope that Mistique and Fanto are not part of team.

Between the potential Psylocke/Archangel/Fantomex and Rogue/Mystique/Gambit melodrama, this book could be an absolute disaster.

This would have been much better if Weapon X and this book were merged into one with the cast being Old Man Logan, Psylocke, Gambit, Domino, Bishop, Archangel and Lady Deathstrike.

Agreed on the disaster stuff. That stuff holds no appeal. Not sure how it will be handled, we'll be able to tell with first issue.

Agreed. I suppose it could be okay but .... that means not all of the issues will be needed imo because I'm not going to buy story about a "cast" I'm not vested in. :)

I think this is going to work in the book's favor to be completely honest.

I do like the cast, overall. I'm not going to harp on Deadpool not being in the book anymore, although it seriously bums me out. With Soule writing, who I also like and can look past IvX because I've enjoyed far more books from him than disliked.

I'm excited to be reading Gambit in an ongoing series again and I'm excited he's with OML and Psylocke especially.

And Soule is the one that created that Gambit clone of a sidekick for Daredevil?! Now he's writing a book with yet another Gambit clone in it and Gambit? I was really starting to look forward to this. All that hope about this meaning he wasn't going to be foil in Gold seems to be all for not. If he may still turn out to be a cad.

I didn't say it's no continuity, and it DEFINITELY counts. It's just that I'm trying to make it VERY new-reader friendly.

Right - may not be for people looking for perfectly aligned continuity. It's there, but it's loose. As I said, I'll take the hit.

The continuity thing annoys me. This isn't creator owned stuff. It's something unique to comics and it should be followed. Writers calling it a crutch or non-necessity bugs me. It's not just him, but he's doing that now, and that's annoying.

I think Gambit will be a series regular in Gold where this book will probably be more like that X-Men Unlimited series back in the early-mid 2000s where it stared the same characters in a rotational format that had individual one off stories that didn't deal with storylines currently happening. I hope that's what he's referring to instead of, "Eff their publication history. I got this." Haha

New @#$##$$_ readers? New @#$#$#& there are no new readers! Not enough to base your readership around! What the @$$#?! So we're just ignoring more @#$# to make people that don't exist more interested? They pick a bunch of classic characters (except Fantomex) steeped in lore to appeal to NEW readers?

I'm starting to think that because OML is in gold, this book is going to be treated much like the last volume of AST. Side missions and plots ignored by all the other books. Kinda like Wolverine and friends. Is Rogue set to continue in UA? That'd be another sign. This cover may just be another bait and switch. Mystique may be in then book as much as she was in Uncanny, Gambit might only show for a panel here and there. Bishop might be around for the first two arcs seeing as I think he's the one they will be "rescuing". This might just end up being OML with Psylocke and Archangel with Fantomex tagging along. Everyone else might just be glorified cameos. Marvel doing this day by day reveal just for Soule to say "it's not the roster, just the cast" throws mixed signals and has really dampened my expectations. I expect nothing. Was a OML solo announced?

From what we heard about Astonishing I think that maybe all cast will have their own small solo stories in different places that will cross on some places and with one villain?
I think Soule is planning to do X version of Game of Thrones.
Really excited what he had planned for Gambit

If my guess about small solo stories will be right then i think we will have more then 1 artist. For example Gambit stories will be drawn by Clay Mann, Logan by Sorentino, Rogue by Larraz etc. So we will have a few artists on one issue.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: cc008 on March 11, 2017, 07:13:16 AM
That would be a different/interesting way of storytelling... I'm not sure how successful it'd be, as OML already has a solo and I'd only be interested in reading some of the arcs then. Actually, really only Gambit. I'm not invested enough in anyone else on the roster to spend money to read their parts of the book if it's broken down that way.

Yes, but the masses that vote for these things won't know/care about that.  Heck they get time to prepare, I'd give Gambit an edge over Jean Grey any day of the week because of his natural resistance to telepathy but that's something people won't take into consideration.  That or he'll think of some way to distract her, cardboard cut out of Scott or Logan or whatever.  

*sound snippet from XTAS on a hidden speaker*: "JEEAN!"
Phoenix: "SCOTT!"
Gambit blows her up when she's not looking.  The end.

It's hard to tell, because yes if it's a guest appearance it usually says "guess starring" somewhere, but they also usually make a song and dance about any new members joining the team.  It's weird.  No way to figure it out right now though.  So far I'm still getting the feeling that he's only in one arc, but I guess we won't know until we get it in our hands. 

On a side note, were they not building up to Gambit reappearing in Uncanny Avengers?  Whatever happened to that?  More lead up to nothing?

Abso-##$#_&#-lutely nothing. Duggan completely trolled us and possibly Magneto fans. Deadpool says he went to the X-Men mansion but didn't find anyone... I didn't know the whole toxic terrigen cloud thing was a secret because he didn't seem to know the X-Men weren't there or neither Magneto not Gambit would be there even if it was. There are a few logic disasters not worth talking about. Magneto should be actively tracked by SHIELD, this accessible through Avenger lines and Gambit SHOULD be intertwined with Guild stuff, so getting in contact with him shouldn't be hard with someone like Deadpool is a freakin mercenary for hire ie underworld connections.

I don't think he was really trolling the magneto fans because magneto had never shown up or been mentioned before that one issue and it's entirely possible deadpool wouldn't have been able to find him (because he definitely wouldn't answer if deadpool called him ;)

I think the cable fans felt somewhat trolled. Since cable 'erased' his mind to keep red skull out and the next cover showed cable and red skull fighting on the astral plane. And it's hat didn't happen at all and cable is still erased.

The solicit for Gold #6 says a member of the team may die. I don't want to get my/anybody's hopes up for Gambit appearing after this arc, but maybe he replaces the the team member that dies if that happens?

If a team member does indeed die, who do you think it would be? Not Kitty as she's the new face of the X-Men/mutants. Gambit and Old Man Logan are safe in Astonishing. Kurt died not that long ago so it might be too soon again. I don't think it would be Rachel since it would be pointless to bring back a character, redesign her and give her a new codename just to kill her off in two months. That leaves Storm and Colossus. Poor Piotr would be my guess. Gotta have some drama for the new leader of the X-Men by killing off one of the most important people to her.

There exists a vein of characters who are or should mainstream characters but are ignored for the same 10 characters. Rachel is such a character and does not need to die. Even when in main titles and marketed as a team member, she's barely used. You want someone to die? Let's look at: Storm, Iceman, Colossus, Nightcrawler (again lol), Wolverine (X-23), OML, Shadowkat, Magik, Psylocke, Emma, any of the O5, Magneto. Characters like Rachel, Northstar, Bishop, Polaris, Havok, Chamber, Frenzy, Armor, Gambit, Sage, Warpath, any of the New X-Men, Forge etc need as much panel time as possible.

http://www.cbr.com/gambit-cyclops-mister-sinister-chris-claremont-clone/?utm_source=CBR-TW&utm_medium=Social-Distribution&utm_campaign=CBR-TW&view=list

Gambit was never intended to be a clone of Cyke. LOL

The rest of the article is odd.

I dunno, Claremont originally wanted him to be villain. Making him a clone would also open the door to villainy as he would be expendable. He did make Gambit a clone of sorts in "The End". He wasn't a clone of Cyclops, but of Sinister with Summers DNA derived from Cyclops mixed into his genome, to facilitate the ability to control vast  amounts of power or energy. That mini, how off the wall it was, or wasnt, is the how the X-Men would come to it's end through the eyes of Claremont... I thought it was good and tragic story as long as you didn't let yourself get too wrapped into "should" and "should nots".

CHARLES SOULE LAYS OUT HIS ASTONISHING MUTANT LANDSCAPE

https://news.marvel.com/comics/62313/charles-soule-lays-astonishing-mutant-landscape/

Nothing new really.

Charles Soule: I’ve said this before, but this book doesn’t have a team. It has a cast. It doesn’t have a leader, either. It’s like a novel, or a film, or a TV series. There are characters who are more or less prominent from scene to scene, but this isn’t a story about superheroes coming together with a shared goal to fight bad guys, with a base, and cool coordinated costumes and so on. This is a bunch of flawed, extremely powerful individuals who find themselves in the same place at the same time as something very intense and potentially world-ending happens. Then, we see what they do next. It’s a pretty cool ride, I think.

Man... maybe if Astonishing turns out the way it sounds, with all these different artists and smaller stories, I WILL read Gold if Gambit sticks around there. I'll take continuity over what Soule's been describing any day.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: Nekobaghira on March 28, 2017, 09:16:39 AM
What Soule is describing could bite him with this book. Conceptually, sounds different than the usual story telling in a Marvel book.

Fans are fickle, they are fickle with TV shows too. I hope he realizes that.

Even in shows with large ensembles, you've got to give the fans something. Those shows do that, they make sure all the plot lines get some attention while driving the overall main plot. If he does by arc and not split or move the other story along ... he's only going to get fans for that group of "actors" for his story.

Basically, he's going to have to split his 20 pages to keep everybody sort of happy with this cast. Not that it can't be done, A+X was able to pull that off. Splitting the pages seems to me the way to go. Splitting would also explain so many artists to get the book out on time.


We won't know until the first issue is out, previews won't help in this case.

We still know nothing about book really. Need more information.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: DonPriceTag on March 28, 2017, 11:33:51 AM
So... A satellite book. A collection of short stories with a revolving cast, no true focus, that will probably have no bearing on the outside world and is only slightly steeped in continuity. This could be interesting or extremely pretentious.

I can see why telling us any information could be... precocious. I don't think there will any real arcs but a single story being told over an unforseen measure of time. A synopsis of the book would be confusing and probably have 3 to 4 plot points. This could be good or a huge cluster @#_$ of characters acting unlike themselves for the sake of a story.

Trying to summarize the book would be like giving someone of synopsis of Game of Thrones or 90210. There are like 7 to 10 characters all doing different things but heading in the same direction, more or less. Some stories matter more than others but it's all relevant.

Thats my thinking too Don. The cast gets into a situation, how they get there is the story, while a background plot rolls along.

With the X-Line in shambles, I wonder why Marvel still chooses to keep Gambit on the sidelines and refuses to give him a steady role? Astonishing X-Men isn't a team book, supposedly? SMH, Gambit as a guest star is wearing extremely thin to me.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: DonPriceTag on April 07, 2017, 05:01:22 PM
I've actually been hoping he'd end up outside of the X-Men, like a recurring role in Secret Avengers, or Hawkeye, maybe Daredevil, or all three. His connection to the underworld as a X-Man is so underutilized it's shame. He's one of the few that can logically function outside of the X-Men books and even be a bridge for other characters while are X-Men themselves but not dependent such as Frenzy.

Yeah it was back when we thought Marvel had the cojones to reset their universe and a bunch of thought Gambit have been de-aged and been made DDs apprentice. Which is the only way we would have accepted it. Because a grown man has no reason being the sidekick of another grown man he's actually matched in combat. But no. We got a body double down to the head sock, colors and staff.

Or Fantomex, the more novice thief screws up, Gambit being the head of the guild is told of it, decides to get involved and then seeks the X-Men out for help.

Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: DonPriceTag on April 23, 2017, 09:03:20 AM
The sad thing is, it's obvious that various writers and editors visit the forums of several large websites such as CBR (and even here!). Between that, twitter and conventions, they know Gambit has fans and they want to see him... I don't think they quite grasp the fact that we'd like to see him not be a loser all the time. In his last 4 appearances in the role of "thief", he's either needed help, or just completely botched whatever he was doing;

ANXF: Wolverine catches him and berates him
Storm: Needs her help (probably the only acceptable feature, though he was a bit clumsy and ill-informed)
UA: Rogue somehow finds him with Hamburgler's cousin, doing some low-level ish and then busts him for it.
X-Men Gold: Now he screws up another heist and needs help fixing it?

Not sure if we can count what we saw during ... what the heck was that last nonsense event? Civil War II! Still not sure if was there to counter Fantomex or do what Fantomex was sent to do? I guess he won that, if not somewhat clumsily.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: Spoonz on April 23, 2017, 12:22:55 PM
At least some writers keep the flame alive and write him as competent.  Asmus obviously wrote his as amazing and then Bunn made him out to be pretty good (sneaking up on Fanto, although you know, any self respecting Gambit fan wouldn't really see that as much of an achievement for the Cajun). 

So there are writers who get it.  Or maybe these other writers need an excuse for Gambit to seek help and they're not creative enough or too lazy to think of anything other than he messes up and needs bailed. 

Claremont did it fine, when Gambit needed help he just ASKED for it, because they were his friends and were willing to be there for him.  They even followed his lead. 

Speaking of Storm, I've never really agreed with her being a better thief than him.  I don't pretend to know much about her history but didn't Gambit pretty much teach her for a while?  And even if she used to be a professional, Gambit's been at it loooong since she stopped.

So the next arc of XMG is the Gambit story. Any thoughts? I'm not sure what to expect from this personally. The fact that the arc springs from yet another Gambit screw up, while stealing, doesn't give me too much confidence that Guggenheim is going to give him a fair shake in terms of characterization... I was already a little on edge from the fact the guy that wrote seasons 3 and 4 of Arrow (the worst of the series) was going to be doing this, but at the same time, someone that writes Arrow should be right at home using a character like Gambit, a street level, more visceral character than rest of his normal cast.

When is the issue out, next month?

I was excited for it until the Gambit screwing up thing came to light. Now I'm doing the wait and see game.  If Gambit is good and competent for the rest of the issue I could be cool with it.

I actually like it, it's dark.  And heck I'll take skeleton Gambit front and centre! 

See the internal art, it's so small I can't make out exactly who is sitting there.  Is it Gambit and Rogue behind OML and Fanto?  Who is the other guy? 

Well at least we know Gambit is in the second issue.  Such a big team, there are going to be characters sidelined.

Classic-looking Gambit, I like it! 

This art is waaaay better than the guy on the first issue.  If they would just keep this artist that would be better. 

I dunno, this series looks to have things in it that are going to make it hard for me to like it: constantly rotating artists, not really a core team, no real connection to past continuity.  The large 'cast' thing is what bugs me the most, I mean, some characters are going to get left out for at least a few issues sometimes, and obviously I'm going to wait and see if Gambit is in them before I buy it.  And I'm sure others will do the same, either for Gambit or other characters.  That's not going to reflect well on sales. 

I don't know why Soule is trying to reinvent the wheel here.  Just give us an awesome team book!

X-MEN GOLD: SENTINEL EVOLUTION

https://news.marvel.com/comics/65311/x-men-gold-sentinel-evolution/

Marc Guggenheim: This arc, in several ways, is about pushing the X-Men as far as they can go; pushing them towards their breaking points. For Gambit, who is sort of responsible for this new Sentinel—not on purpose, just through something that had unintended consequences—this is going to be a hard arc for him.

Marvel.com: What else do you say to readers about why they can’t miss this latest arc of X-MEN: GOLD?

Marc Guggenheim: It’s a few things. First of all, the big return of Gambit who we haven’t seen in the pages of X-Men in a while. He’s just a blast. He’s fun to write and I think he’s fun to read. A lot of the story gets kicked off because of his involvement.

15 Superheroes Who DESTROYED Wolverine

15. GAMBIT

Towards the end of his run on Uncanny X-Men, writer Chris Claremont was doing a long-running subplot (that was basically abandoned once Claremont left the series) about Wolverine’s healing powers not working properly and about the hero slowing down in general. This was highlighted by a story that came out during a time when the X-Men were disbanded where Wolverine was captured and crucified by the Reavers. Only the intervention of a young mutant by the name of Jubilee saved his life.

When the team got together, Wolverine clashed with new teammate, Gambit, in Uncanny X-Men #273 (in a sequence drawn by the great Michael Golden) and Gambit took Wolverine apart easily. Wolverine had a victory in a rematch with Gambit during the Muir Isle Saga, but as it was handled by a different writer, it didn’t really feel like much of a conclusion to the character arc.

Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: DonPriceTag on May 23, 2017, 01:21:56 PM
Hmm... I spoke on this over on CBR, but some of us were onboard this "story over continuity" ship because I guess they figured the writers would use it in the way they hoped, not realizing that they may do things like possibly make Gambit and Fantomex buddies (presumably, we don't know if that's going to happen yet), or as we've seen, Gambit a bumbling attempted hero, screwing up the one thing he's supposed to be famous for, doing something he actually shouldn't be doing given his current status, but I can and have said the same about his last 4 guest appearances. The only one that kind of made sense was his Civil War II stint in which he gets knocked out by his ex-girlfriend's mother, via sucker punch. These are comics and at the end of the day, letting a writer pick and choose what they want to ignore or embrace is bad practice, especially because Marvel editorial is so weak these days. Nothing, even amongst "top tier" characters, is consistent, what makes anyone think that that approach would fair well for a character coming out of forced obscurity? I say 'forced' because Gambit had no reason to disappear. He's a got a strong fan following among hardcore readers and nonreaders alike.

she kissed Gambit to remind him that people see him as a good man or to remind herself of something, but we don't know what that is ( im 100% sure it has nothing to do with being in love with Remy or anything like that), man Guggenheim nailed this relationship and highlighted how much it sucks not having these to interact more, Storm never took s*** from Remy and refused to let him be self loathing she was and is his best friend on the X-Men. Even after the MM reveal Storm who was then leader of the Morlocks had a very god reason to be pissed with him and there was nothing, she missed him and talked him into returning to the x-men. Its like his secret was revealed and in stead of anger she had sympathy....God damn it i want these two in a book together just pal ing around robbing stuff

oh yeah edit bit, my only complaint more of a niggle is he never called her Stormy but i chalk that up to it being a super serious situation he caused leaving no time for him to joke around

Storywise - it wasn't bad for a 3 issue arc. It was heavily about Kitty and Rachel but that was okay. The Storm/Gambit stuff in #6 was good. I don't regret having these issues or going out and buying them. Keep in mind, in the end ... not much Gambit.

Then there is the creating the issue for the team to solve and not part of helping in the solution. I saw those comments on CBR and well, I can't debate it.

Gambit was used for a plot device and in general wasn't a very good appearance for him.

He made a mistake that really blew up in his face, and there is no going back on it.

I dunno guys - Gambit is just written horribly so much of late, he is not the character we know and love.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: DonPriceTag on June 28, 2017, 08:07:56 AM
Weak editorial. There's a theory crafted by a Youtuber called "Diversity and Comics". He says Marvel has been burned so many times in the past (starting with the Image exodus in the early 90s), that they don't allow too many people to have power, so if they leave it doesnt hurt them. It's why Bendis is really the only "star" writer. He's a company man with interest vetted into the company. He isnt going anywhere. But he pointed out that any time a book does really well under a writer or creative team, the book is canceled somewhere before 30 issues or so (unless it's an Avengers book, then the creative team just switches up), the writer and/or artist are moved to something else, and the process is repeated until you hear about them pursuing "creator owned" properties or just working with DC or a smaller publisher. He cited several instances and it's holding up pretty well (Remender, Hicks, Mann; to name a few). With this revolving door of creators the editors dont have much control over the books, especially over star writers like Bendis who basically does whatever he wants. There are only a handful of editors that oversee the offices, like Ketchum was over the X-Men, before being fired. Under them, are even less powerful assistant editors (typically between 21 and 25 years old), which do most of the work in terms of fact checking, and continuity assurance... These assistant editors are many and don't last long. Most are afraid of making a mistake or upsetting anyone. Vast majority, if not all, operate out of the NYC office, which I hear is a place of fear and dread. No one wants to lose their foot in the door and know they are expendable. They aren't going to call out their book's writer on something that's less than accurate. In turn we get characterizations and interactions that generally don't hold up properly when scrutinized.

With the 2nd run of the Deadpool kills the Marvel Universe foolishness, we saw that he kills someone that vaguely resembles Gambit, written by someone that claimed to be a fan of his. So is it official that Gambit is now some sort of running joke over at Marvel? From what we got of the dialogue (all dialogue is a look into the writer's opinion), killing Gambit off in these little self contained stories is source of entertainment. Everytime they use Gambit in anything I get ready to cringe.


The current crop doesn't have a high opinion of him and basically ignore anything that doesn't add up to their narrative and the group coming up after them seems to be infatuated with TAS version, probably mostly because he's been mishandled since 07 with only one exception (the Asmus run). I'm beginning to dread the idea of him being lost in the shuffle forever.

Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if he went the way of Captain Marvel. Disappear utterly and completely, until such a time that someone with a passion for Gambit can write him.


I am kind of falling into the idea that I would rather there never be a Gambit movie than a bad one.


Comic Gambit kind of comes off as a punching bag. Akin to the Deadpool Kills, I remember seeing a snippet with MODOX using his psychic powers to pop Gambit's head, sometime during that battle universe thing

Re: Deadpool kills...




It's a Deadpool Kills mini. Characters aren't going to exactly be shown in their best light. And yes, Gambit is a favorite of Bunn's.. so he's going to write him into his books any chance he gets. Even if it means killing him in an AU. It doesn't bother me at all.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: DonPriceTag on July 02, 2017, 02:56:36 PM
I know the Deadpool fan in you wants to defend this, but at what point did Bunn write Gambit in this? He wrote Gambit like Jubilee was in X1. Yeah she was there... If you know what scene to scan. This didn't look like the efforts of fan of the character. This did nothing for him outside of actually furthering the clowning of a character who really didn't need anymore help in that department. I wouldn't have had a problem with Gambit fighting and dying by Deadpool hands in a comic in which is the central point. That not what we got and that's not Bunn "writing" Gambit. The lack of visual authenticity doesn't help. What artist/colorist that supposed to work for Marvel within the X-office doesn't know Gambit's eye color?


You can be a Gambit fan and be cool with something like this but when it keeps happening... Supposed to be like, "oh well"? Well I guess yeah. Gambit the chump is common place now. Here's hoping that Soule writes him as being as competent as at least Squirrel Girl.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: purplevit on July 02, 2017, 04:03:49 PM
Don't care about some alt mini where Deadpool kills everyone but if you will read Civil War II X-Men #4 you will never guess that writer likes Gambit.


Get his jaw broken by Mystique? It is ridiculous.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: cc008 on July 02, 2017, 05:08:08 PM
Bunn didn't clown Gambit here and he didn't clown him in Civil War II either for that matter. Which I still have non problem saying I thoroughly enjoyed.  Sure, he's not being used as often as we'd like and for the most part hasn't been shown in the best light, but there are far worse occurrences recently than Civil War II to be hung up on. 


This new DP mini is exactly that. A DP mini. In an alternate reality nonetheless. My reaction would be the same if it were a "Wolverine Kills" or "Punisher Kills" or anything else of the same vein.  Should we expect backlash from Spidey fans when Wade fires a bullet in his head from point blank rage.. or from Cap or Cyclops fans when Wade finds some sadistic way to take them out in a mature rated, alternate universe comic with the words "Deadpool kills" in the title?  Bunn likes Gambit. So however he can fit him into a story he's writing, he'll do it. That's all there is to it. Anyway he can find a way to have a version of Gambit in his comics, he's going to find a way to do it. If he ends up writing Gambit into X-Men Blue, I guarantee it'd be fantastic.


I'm not defending the mini as a Deadpool fan because I'm not even going to buy it. I can't afford all the Deadpool books plus everything else I want to read, so I stick to the ones that matter. I'm defending Bunn as a writer who clearly enjoys sticking Gambit into his stories. Which I'm all for as a Gambit fan.


Being mad about the colorist and editor screwing up his eyes AGAIN is one thing. Being peeved about Gambit getting a whole page in a Deadpool Kills mini, where characters are dying left and right... eh.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: DonPriceTag on July 02, 2017, 07:38:58 PM
Your looking at it from the small pic. It's just a mini, yeah duh. I see it as; Gambit hasn't looked good outside of the Asmus solo and in like handful of panels, not books or pages, panels. To the person picking up a book who isn't familiar with the character pre-Blood of Apocalypse is going to just know him as this. This is yet another negative on the Gambit brand. Which is not doing well. While X-Men seem to be rebounding he looks to be just holding on. I'd rather he not get used than be used like this.


I'm in marketing. I know how the human brain reacts to stimuli and what the result of conditioning can do. Anybody remember what happened to Ja Rule's career? Or Sony Pictures a couple years back? Bad marketing. 50 Cent, a giant in hip-hop at the time continuously dragged Ja Rule and Murda Inc through the mud for months maybe even years to the point they became a running joke in the industry. Sony's professional name got tarnished due to a hack that exposed hundreds of unsavory emails. They almost went bankrupt. All that bad publicity that just wouldn't go away. It was worse in Ja Rules case because he never recovered (same story with Cannibus and Eminem. Who the hell is Cannibus? Exactly LOL), while Sony Pictures is as healthy as ever.


I'm not complaining about this piece of straw, I'm annoyed by the bail hay on his back. And no, the Civil War showing didn't blow me away but it wasn't the worst thing in the world. Still don't by him being KOed by Mystique, but whatever...
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: cc008 on July 03, 2017, 09:25:03 AM
I understand where you guys are coming from.. like I said over at CBR, I just really don't think THIS instance is one to lose sleep over. That's all. Everything else that's gone on.. from X-Men Gold to not coming back in Uncanny Avengers to his eyes still never being the right color to Peter David's juvenile comments.. that's all fair game and completely annoying.


And I definitely understand human reaction to stimulus and conditioning... 8 years of psychology and mental health schooling will do that to you. So for newer readers.. when they see THIS type of Gambit over and over.. it's what they come to expect. And it sucks, I agree. In the big picture, it stinks that this is what it's come to. Letting an appearance in a mini series about Deadpool Killing every single Marvel Universe character get to us even more about it isn't worth it.

Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: Nekobaghira on July 19, 2017, 01:32:40 PM
Just so you know why these covers cost as much as they do ..... its an ordering thing from Marvel.

The Gambit/Rogue was a 1 in 100 order. In order for shops to get that cover they have to order 100 copies of Astonishing Xmen. I did get the cover, it was $75 ... I have a limit on what I'll spend but I do like that cover.

Now ... for the cover with Jim Lee/card cover ... which you find for $1000 or more is because the shop that ordered it, had to order 1000 copies of Astonishing Xmen.

These shops have to find a way to re-coop their spending and the only way to do that is up the price on the variant.

Seriously, these shops are stuck with copies of books that will not leave the shop. My shop won't sell all copies of Astonishing it ordered to get ONE cover of Gambit/Rogue variant. To get two of that, the shop would have had to order another 100 copies.

Its a horrible business model and a total loss for shops and fans.

The Dodson cover was cheaper (Psylocke/Fantomex) but again ... the price is upped to cover the amount of issues sitting on the shelf.

Now, when we the sales numbers for July and where Astonishing Xmen lands .. which if there were places who ordered 1000 to get a cover to sell for $1000. The number is inflated. It won't actually be based on how many purchased the book by the consumer because its distribution based.

I think we might see the headsock as well at some point. Mainly because Tatum has mentioned it before in an interview already.


Personally, I think they could release a close up shot of his eyes with black sclera, red iris's, and black pupils and maybe a piece of hair hanging in front as an early teaser shot and people would flip and start getting excited. Just my opinion.

That has always been a concern of mine. That they think his eyes will be off putting or confuse the audience because he looks "evil" or something. It's why they didn't do it in Wolverine Origins. But times have changed. And you're right about Deadpool being ugly and not to mention his eyes are just white when he is in full costume. Ever since Channing Tatum was announced to play Gambit I've asked girls who are fans of his what they would think if he was in a superhero movie and he had the black and red eyes. If it would bother them. And they have all said no and in fact most said it sounds kind of "hot". So there should be no reason not to do it at this point.

Came across this on my phone update tab; http://www.xavierfiles.com/ (http://www.xavierfiles.com/)


...Got to the section that displayed the end pages from Uncanny X-Men #350. Reminded me why so much of you guys detest Rogue. Also reminded me how hamfisted the writers were for writing that action in the story, which just didnt make any sense. If they had used a narration box to explain she was still under the effect of her powers (absorbing Gambit's self hatred), it may have been a lighter hit. But that was inserted after the fact when editorial (remember when editors had the power the do that?! lol) forced them to put him back in the books due to fan demand (remember when fan demand meant something to Marvel!?). What a @#@$$. Left him to fend for himself without even a shirt and wearing metal boots!? In the snow!? And she dropped him! "I wouldn't let you die in there", no, that'd be too swift and basically painless. Die slowly and dreadfully out here in a frozen wasteland. Man @#@$ the X-Men... Not a single one of them even asked what happened to him? like;


"Hey, thats messed up... I cant wait to have words with the Cajun" - Wolverine


"Well he's not here"


"Where is he?"- Wolverine


"Think Rogue left him there..."


"Where?" -Wolvie


"In Antarctica."


"So... uh dead then, right?"


"Nah he was alive..."


"...someone gonna go get him?"


"I dunno... maybe"


"... ??? "


"what?"

"Well, I guess his armor has thermo gear..."


"..."

"What? No gear?"

"He had pants..."

"Well #@$# it."

"Yeah, that's what we said on the way back."

That would have been too easy IMO, but a narration box having Gambit's thoughts in it while she flew away or spoke to him would have absolved the situation better, especially if he condemned himself and accepted it. It was an emotional moment that the writers didn't take advantage of. Instead just wrote Rogue being an irrational @#@!$ and uncharacteristically leaving him to die.

In a way, they went hard in the opposite direction. During the trial proper, they had a little panel of Rogue, angry, with Gambit's eyes, and charging a card. When she leaves him, she has her own eyes again and is melancholy. It makes it seem like she is completely self possessed when she abandons him.

I like this idea better than both. It's more subtle, which I think things like this should be. Let the reader wonder. But in this case they left us to make up our own story until it was explained later on. Having her say a couple words the way Gambit would, would have been a great find.

I was really skeptical about this video because every time this guy mentions Gambit he speaks about him in a very condescending fashion. He's obviously one of those "the 90s sucked"- people. But he did a good job on the profile even while taking a couple expected jabs at him.

I agree that he doesn't like 90s era but did well with Gambit. He didn't give information about Witness, telephatic resistance etc. but thats good for people to learn about Gambit's potential.

Post by: bigstupidjellyfish on August 06, 2017, 05:30:38 PM
He's actually a 90s guy. Got into comics with the X-Men. I checked his Twitter when he did the poll for this and he seemed pretty into Gambit.


I think the condescending stuff comes from him being anti-Fox. He gets hyped about DC stuff but he's kinda unhype about Marvel too (except for the Marquis of Death video).

I'm not basing my opinion of him on this video. I'm subscribed to the channel and I've heard him take jabs at Gambit several times. I even asked what his objection to him was. Didn't get an answer but I wasn't expecting one. It's why I'm shocked the video was a good as it was, but you can tell his real feelings about the character if you cut through the BS. To be honest, getting into comics during the 90s doesn't make you a "90s fan". It just meant your started reading around that particular era... He's not all bad. He's got a childlike enthusiasm. He gets excited over even the new Marvel books and has some sjw tendencies (the stuff that's killing Marvel?). But his passion and ability to narrate are undeniable. I enjoy his stuff. But no, if you're a regular viewer you know he's not much of a Gambit fan. Which is fine.

lol. The funny thing about it, its rooted in something noble. I'm not among the majority demo for comics (black, Jamaican/Bahamian-American), I get what some would like to see. Problem comes when those same people feel entitled, or even worse, the need to champion that entitlement in the name of others, most who aren't even asking for it. Another killer are the types who just want to use this medium and platform as a way to make noise, but don't truly have any interest in it. In turn the comic companies take these types, give them influence of the books by either letting them write, edit or conform to their wishes in hopes of tapping into the crowd. A crowd that doesn't buy/read comics for extended periods of time. All the while alienating their core audience and giving new readers a false impression of what the books are supposed to be about.

In my mind's eye ... Gambit's BD is on Aug 20th ... I picked that date because back then I think the release date of the Mackie mini was listed then.

I think we should do some art thing or whatever ... post an appreciation celebrating his birth as it were. What do you want to do?

DonPriceTag is making a Matrix joke and Sheba is making a Reddit reference. Probably. Definitely something lost in translation though.

I think it did, which is why I picked the 20th. I wrote it down somewhere and that date is stuck in my head. I just pick it now for his anniversary. :) (Which means I'm confusing #266 with Mackie's mini.) LOL

I think for Gambit anniversary, we could post quick fics or pics we find.  ;D

Not sure if you know about AO3 .... Archive of Our Own ... has a lot of fics, the Xmen section is kind of thin but sometimes there is stories there, that are not on fanfiction.net

I know we've got a few who love fanfic. Gambit doesn't have his own section or anything on AO3.

FABIAN NICIEZA On 30 Years In Comics, DEADPOOL's Success, & NFL SUPERPRO's Chances For a Return


https://www.newsarama.com/36105-fabian-nicieza-on-30-years-in-comics-deadpool-s-success-nfl-superpro-s-chances-for-a-return.html


Nrama: Deadpool is a big star now, and some of your X-Force creations are coming into their own now. Are there other characters you created or co-created that you think would do exceptionally well in the spotlight?


Nicieza: I think a non-X-Men focused TV series of a younger Gambit would make a great show. I think if Marvel Studios had decided to introduce a few more "cannon fodder" villains as almost throwaway cameos in their movies, combined with a few of their more prominent villains, then they could have more smartly set up a Thunderbolts movie that would have been as much fun as Kurt Busiek and Mark Bagley's first year on the series.


Ironically, I think many of the pitches I made to Marvel -- and even DC - that they passed on contained some of the most viable concepts that they could have expended to film and television.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: Nekobaghira on August 26, 2017, 01:16:26 PM

lol Astonishing will no impact on ANY book. It's an insulated, isolated story barely steeped in continuity. That is the only reason Rogue was allowed to be in a book with an "X" in the title. To be honest... I'm not entirely sure why it even exists.

Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: DonPriceTag on October 31, 2017, 10:45:48 PM
I think he insinuated that it could go on longer if it sold well. Which means it doesn't have a clear path outside of 12. I'm not happy about that. I like the book despite who much Soule doesn't understand Gambit. But having Logan an Rogue in this book when they are busy elsewhere in a story that doesn't seem to occur anywhere within the current realm of continuity doesn't bode well. The fact that Xavier may return through this is its only saving grace, but I doubt anything that happens here will be mentioned anywhere else. I mean c'mon, 4/5 of the cast is in limbo outside of this book.

It started out in a defeatist attitude - a premise what it would be .. then "maybe" be more. Bad marketing in my view.

I mean c'mon, 4/5 of the cast is in limbo outside of this book.

This is why I am doubtful for Gambit. Whatever the new book is, they'll pick the character who has been in the books or wanted and all that ... and for quite some time its not Gambit.

The art of forming a team isn't just throwing your favorites in a bowl and tossing vigorously. Each member needs at least a function or connection to someone else on the team. But in either group you have a theme of redemption and/or darkness. Not to mention, tap into characters with fan followings. If I could I try to sneak Dazzler or Emma in their and then you'll be sure to make this book a top Marvel seller. And not make this a X-Force team, an X-Men team with an ongoing theme, not just a single mission.

Cc found a pic that Anka is drawing Gambit in his X-Factor iniform. He is doing R&G covers but what if it is cover for X-Factor return?





New team book with Gambit or Rogue are coming :)

KT at least stated that this image is new and not and older one .. via CBR. I still don't get why Gambit would be in this particular uniform but its nice to know that it is indeed new art. :)

It must be Gambit as last member. No reason to have Rogue there because team already have 2 tanks. Also Rogue has the same powers as Namor. Evry team need explosive charmer. Would love Gambit to be with X-23 on team. Also Taylor at least is writting Gambit explosions big. Remy blown the whole floor and X-23 into pieces with just 1 card in All-New Wolverine.

I like his old costume but right now prefer it without hedsock.


Headsock is lazy drawing for artists. Draw any face, then add headsock and you will have Gambit.


But, I agree that headsock in iconic and must appear in movie in some way.
Also mo matter what it is always returns in comics.

ROGUE & GAMBIT #2 (OF 5)

 KELLY THOMPSON (W) • PERE PEREZ (A)
 Cover by KRIS ANKA
 Hulk Variant Cover by TBA
 RING OF FIRE Part 2
 • ROGUE and GAMBIT dig deep into their past in “therapy” to maintain their cover, all the while snooping around after hours for clues about missing mutants.
 • Will what they unearth about themselves in this “paradise” mean curtains for their relationship or bring them closer than ever?
 • And what discovery straight out of a horror movie has ROGUE and GAMBIT wishing they’d never agreed to this mission in the first place?!
 32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

All I have to say about this is that the Injustice comic wouldn’t be as successful as it is if weren’t for Tom Taylor. There’s a reason DC brought him back for Injustice 2 after someone else took over for the last two years.


The guy is an underrated writer who’s only just now getting the recognition he deserves.

It's not the characters themselves that irk me it's the assemble braced against how many known and better acquainted characters there are that could have been paired with Jean opposed to this. I'm not planning to snub the book but c'mon. This was a hard sell for me if they didn't announce Gambit. If they would have made this a modified version of the gold team she was on in the 90s or even X-factor in the 80s, I think the book would have a lot more hype around it.


Marvel is trying something new to get fans on board but I don't think they understood it's not the needing something new more than something different and less seen than seen than the Wolverine(s) O5, Rachel, Storm, Colossus, Nightcrawler and Kitty.

I probably wouldn't have read it if Gambit weren't in it. That's not because I don't find the team interesting, that's just because I have my limitations on what I can buy. There are some question marks.. yes.. but the characters I named make me to excited to read with Gambit.

I wouldn't object to that either. Two characters that always seem to be trod upon by everyone else in the last twenty years getting together makes sense to me.


I thought they worked well together back when Gambit was leading that team (was it Uncanny? So long ago I don't remember) with her and Cable and a few others.




I am curious more than anything else to see where this future Romy stuff goes, and I would not object if this latest mini just finally put the period at the end of whatever relationship that they might have had so they can go their own ways without everyone having to go 'butwhatabout'...
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: DonPriceTag on December 26, 2017, 11:05:23 AM
That is something though. Can they be together without being in each other's faces 24/7? Think that'd be interesting. For them to reconcile but not be attached at the hip. She continues on doing her thing and he does his thing with only sparing mentions of each other. I guess that's what a ongoing for the two would do. Keep the narrative going without bogging down whatever other book they may be a part of.

What was the CBR article about? I'd search it and read it but I don't wanna give them my clicks if it's negative haha

Which is why when writers like Wilson and KT makes Gambit "chasing" women and do it such a way that it fails in the humor depart or romantic dept adds to this silly comments from these places. And why some of us who got upset with #1 of R&G. It's just bad and doesn't work. IMO

That's a good point. I'm hoping that KT is using this side of Gambit so she can kind of strip it eventually and get him to the place by the end of the mini where he's not like that anymore. You can still make him a womanizer without having some of the over-aggressive behavior he/the writer uses for "lols"

Well if we're bringing up the book, he's got way more positive reviews from almost every main stream geek culture website and reviewer. Even diversity and comics who personally dislikes KT. But that's not about Gambit but the book he's 50% part of. I actually see some of the slight as reverse hate. People not like seeing him get good publicity so they are just petty and throwing out random venom in an attempt to offset. And c'mon. He's not chasing women. He's chasing "A" woman, which would be the opposite of sleazy, isn't it?


How dare that sleaze ball try to be committed to one woman! :P


But I wasn't talking about the mini. There's a article up on CBR right now. The author just trashes just about everyone, and lays it on thick with Gambit. Who ever this Mason person is, it seems they've only sparingly read anything over the past 10 years.

It's not that its one woman that he's chasing, its the number of times the one woman's various ways of saying "no" is not listened to by him.

Adds to the creep factor regardless and can be pointed to as in a book where the "creepy" behavior occurred.  Views being different, some will see it that way, others will not. 

Anyway, we don't need to go more rounds on it.  :P I don't care anymore - LOL

I saw that Diversity and Comics video yesterday. He made kind of a big deal about how it was a heterosexual romance, which...seemed odd, as I didn't realize comics were lacking in that all of a sudden.

I think the issue here is not how many women, but the "chasing" part. And that the person in that book is pretty clear about not being interested...

And, no, they don't do research. What they do is go off their vague memories of the '90s, and look at out-of-context scans and info they find online.

Well Marvel has systematically separated all their long standing relationships and instead has characters just hooking up with each other all over the place. The only ones that seem have survived their culling are no longer in our reality (Sue and Reed) or have other check boxes ticked like bi-racial and/or homosexual, and when was the last time you even saw Northstar..? I really like Northstar dangit. He's more hung up on the last part, but I have noticed this deep entrenched hook-up culture throughout Marvel. They say it started around the time Quesada was getting a divorce from his wife. Something along the lines of "people can't relate". It works for some characters but is completely out of character for others and looks to be pandering.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: anya on January 08, 2018, 08:23:08 PM
I don't watch that guy, but Marvel has systematically wiped their long term couples, I will agree with that.


About Gambit 'harassing' rogue because she's clearly not interested... that second part just isn't true. The mini where some are complaining about was not trying to show that. And even before that in other  titles it wasn't true. In UA, she was hitting on fake/ RSgambit, and she told him that. Sure Dugan was only writing that to troll the Gambit fans, but it was still there. In Astonishing, on the astral plane, she didn't turn him down, she said I'm not sure if I can take getting my heart broken again, but ok, then we'll save the day, but then Xavier swiped her away.


In the mini, when they wind up on the floor of the danger room, she literally stays there underneath with her arm around him while pixie and Betsy talk about them, when kitty is talking about the mission, she says they need a couple, and rogue says that they are in flux, not over and she's moved on and not interested any more. And again on the beach, she's not sure if they can fix their relationship, not she's not interested.


If you don't like that because you think he should be done with her nonsense, fine, that's a valid opinion. But you don't need to agree with the haters that he's being a creep, going after a girl whose not interested. She shown that she's 'interested' but then gets cold feet, not the same thing.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: remydat on January 08, 2018, 11:45:13 PM
Well yes we know KT wasn't trying to show him harassing her but it certainly qualifies as harassment.  They are at work and he is making unwelcome advances towards her.  Pretty textbook case really.

This isn't the 90s where you kind of of just ignore it because Rogue gives us some hint she is interested.  Even when Gambit says he is carrying the baggage alone, it is providing a clear hint that Rogue has shown no interest in Gambit's unwelcome advances.


So you are pretty much left with ignoring the definition of harassment to excuse the fact it's one of your favorite characters doing it.

Post by: DonPriceTag on January 09, 2018, 09:11:30 AM
Here's what doesn't make sense to me about all this and I've made note not to challenge anyone because I didn't see the point you both seems fairly dug in... I'm not trying to change your minds but now it seems you guys asserting something else I don't really think is fair as we all are fans on equal grounds.


It comes down to writing. This aversion you two have isn't about this book. What happened in this book is mild and despite what actually occurred there's this push back. You've made it obvious because you've said it. You either don't like the Rogue character or don't like the pairing. That's cool. I really don't like Fantomex or Kitty. Most of the reasons I don't is because the character(s) was built up (or not) to be a certain way I don't agree with. But you know what? If it was written out and explained properly I can say things like; "I can see Fantomex even next to Gambit in a buddy-thief cop book or a team book" and " I could have bought Kitty being a leader if it's shown how she became that".


Insinuating that because we can read a story without dismissing outright because we don't agree with it in a way is insulting. No one here was into the idea of them being "insta-together", and it's not even a guarantee that they will be by the end of this book. You talk about ignoring continuity... If you read any of this book you know that's not what KT has done. The separation comes in the interpretation of said continuity. Bending it one way, is no different than bending it in another. But that's not your beefs. Standing on the grounds "If this happened to me I wouldn't want to be around", well you shouldn't compare yourself to a fictional character in a sci-fi soap opera written by two dozen authors of varying talent and experience. What happened here wasn't all that serious... And sadly not all that dissimilar from what we've been given more often than not. Because Gambit seems to be more into it than Rogue doesn't mean she isn't. Throughout the whole book at least from the Sentinel deletion back Rogue was her normal "I don't know"-self but hardly opposed to it. Again, it can be sent to either side but make one more right than the other.


Rogue hasn't been some saint and due to writing habits she's treated Gambit pretty bad. That's continuity. And it's perfectly logical and natural to look at that and hold it up, but at the same time to act as if it can't e corrected (which might not be the case by the end) is as short sighted as ignoring it.


Don't add any emotions to this post, please. Believe me I'm just writing, I'm not attached to either way of thinking other than "open". I could have just gone on but I like conversation.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: remydat on January 09, 2018, 09:34:42 AM
Don, we have had this argument before.  It is sexual harassment as defined by the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

https://www.eeoc.gov/laws/types/sexual_harassment.cfm (https://www.eeoc.gov/laws/types/sexual_harassment.cfm)

Did Gambit make repeated unwanted sexual advances?  The answer to that question is yes.  Open and shut.  It may not be as sinister or harmful as some of the stuff we are seeing because of #metoo but it clearly fits the definition.  If I saw Gambit doing this at my work, I would as a Director be duty bound to intervene and if I didn't I could be reprimanded or fired and I would expose my company to a lawsuit. 

So this has nothing to do with opinion or with whether I like Rogue or Romy.  It has to do with the legal definition of the word.  I am not telling anyone to not like the book nor am I telling you to get worked up by this.  It's a comic afterall.  I am telling you that by the legal definition of the word, what KT depicted in the book is sexual harassment.  That is all.  How you respond to that is up to year and I don't think enjoying it makes you wrong.  I simply don't think we should reinvent what words mean just to defend our favorite characters.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch

Actually we didn't argue you made the point and I bowed out because I thought it was silly. You think I'm ignoring "harassment" and I think your grasping at straws in an attempt to make a soft point. Im not defending anything because I didn't see that remotely the same way you did. If you're going to repeat this for the 3rd time... Again I'm out of the conversation. You can have it. That's as ridiculous as someone saying Longshot rapes every woman he's been with because he manipulates "luck" and probability. I guess you can say the same thing about Domino and Star Fox (not luck powers). Cheers.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: remydat on January 09, 2018, 10:07:47 AM
Don,

All you keep doing is running away from the discussion.  You say I am being silly or grasping at straws but you have yet to take the definition of the word and explain how it doesn't fit these circumstances.

What I see in the comic is a guy purposefully putting himself in an uncomfortable position with his X while at work.  He ends up on top of her and clearly makes an advance.  Rogue responds by slapping/pushing him away and leaving the room.  (Unwanted advance no 1)  This guy then follows her and surprises Rogue coming up behind her.  He does this by putting his arms on her shoulders.  Rogue responds by walking away from him. (Unwanted advance no 2).  Rogue then meets with Kitty. When Kitty tells her of the plan, she clearly says No.  Kitty then tries to shame her into doing the mission which succeeds.  For the rest of the story Gambit keeps trying to get her to agree to rekindle their relationship and Rogue continually tries to shoot him down nicely.  (Unwanted sexual advance 3).

What is silly or grasping at straws about the above?

I don't have a problem if you don't want to discuss but you are the one that keeps making comments but then running away whenever I logically explain my position using the actual definition of the word.  It is like you are channelling your inner Rogue and just running from anything that makes you uncomfortable.  And before you pitch a fit just remember you are the one saying my argument is silly despite providing zero logic for that claim so me noting you are running from the argument again is fair game.  I think you need to make up your mind as to whether you want to discuss or not as I have done nothing but civilly discuss things.  Something isn't silly just because you don't like it.

Again you are deflecting.  All I want to know is why in clear terms you don't consider it harassment.  Merely claiming someone is silly or grasping at straws is no way to discuss something.  I have made it clear why I think what I do and this is now the second time that all you do in return is claim something with no explanation.


Again, if you are not prepared to articulate your reasons for something not sure why you keep trying to discuss it.

Or they have nearly 2 years of development and it's ignore the second it's over (Asmus' Gambit... or XXM before that). Still don't buy Gambit being dumb enough to allow himself to be transformed into a Horseman with no idea that it'd brainwash him, flat-out ignoring what it's done to at least 3 of his teammates in the past... it was a dumb story written by a dumb writer who has now been given control over one of my favorite characters (Legion). Milligan's stories made me quit comics back in Golgotha... I didn't read another comic until after AoX was finished (had to read a bunch of back issues to catch up...). OK...

Yep. It's getting ridiculous now with Rogue. We all talk about how poorly written Gambit is at times but Rogue is written so awful at times too. Are there any Rogue sites where they get together and talk about some of the poor treatment of their favorite character? It's like someone needs to sit Rogue down and explain to her that just because you have an emotional moment with, have admiration for, have affection for, respect, are impressed by, or spend time with a man...   Doesn't mean you have to kiss them or make out with them. It almost seems like a psychosomatic thing at this point. Or maybe she feels obligated. ;)  Anyway, it does seem like a lot of writers have used Rogue as their trophy-piece for a certain character they're writing. Like they like to use her as a little fling for someone.

... Duggan is a great writer but that pairing still doesn't make sense. The build up to that "make out party" was weak. It was like a really whack prize that in the end did nothing objectify Rogue. But those Rogue diehards refused to see anything beyond "she's the leader and star" even though Id argue that Deadpool was a bigger draw during Duggan's run. To be honest, for what he did, she's being awfully chummy. Very unlike her judgmental self. The same woman that left Gambit to die in the Antarctic for doing something indirectly in his youth and murdered a teammate in cold blood for falling victim to a psychotic break.

So with all new Fresh Start announcements what you would like to see as Fresh Start for Gambit? Dr.Strange went to space. Would you like smth completely new like this for Gambit?I would love to see Gambit/Sinister interaction the most.I always liked when Gambit was working for him and would like more of it. Smth like double agent in Messiah Complex.

I've seen speculation of him getting a solo floating about. Has there been any kind of announcement or is it just rampant speculation after promo for fresh start.

I actually asked CB (Marvel EiC) about the idea of lesser characters getting digital books. I don't really understand why this isn't being used. Books like America Chavez, The Defenders, Spider-Gwen and Black Panther don't really sell enough units to stay float in print, but they all sell more than 5k. Why not just transfer them to 100% digital? I mean do more of a profit sharing, employ lesser-known artists and pay them exclusively via sells of the book. It'd be a great way to vet artists and provide a proving ground for a ideas and titles. If it does well, make it a printed title. But 5k at 3.99 would yield nearly 20K. All they'd be spending is bandwidth or paying for servers which are probably only having to deal with 50MB of data per title. No waste, no print, no paper etc. Almost 100% profit minus what they pay the writer or artist. Gambit was well within the 20Ks while not having any tie-in, variants, worthwhile features or even advertising. That'd be closer to $80K (@20K in sales). And digital download doesn't mean you don't insert ads. They should.

@Don, I was waiting to see what the response was? I guess if you didn't add it on, it wasn't one that is worthwhile?


Comics are niche now anyway. They'd probably make a lot more money if they did a lot more digital stuff, plus allow a doujin-type market like what exists in Japan. With Disney holding their leash, though... I don't think that would ever happen, at least not in a way where they wouldn't want to dip into it too, and that sort of goes against the spirit of the doujin.

That's the thing, they dont have to touch the printed stuff, itd just be added to their catalog. There are a lot of good ideas that get pitched, and while they may not make sense from a business standpoint to print, digital books will only make them profit and probably drive readers to stores to read the print-only books, especially if they do it right and have more crossover and continuity usage. Not so much crossover where you can't read one book without reading 3 others, but enough  reference that would get people curious about whats going on elsewhere.

The red line up i saw at xbr made him look like a wierdly shaped pixelated video character. I must be small screen and the way the colors look ao solid.... i half expected him to start moving like a gif.

I thought it looked pretty good for a smaller image. I like the designs for Red honestly. The X placement is in a weird spot for everybody, but besides that.. the slight armored look on everyone looks pretty cool.

Also I thonk in some interview Taylor told that new team member will join team in issue 4. So I hope that in issue 3 Gambit will be doing his own thing and then will run to help read team.

There's go my rack-scan... I mean, who was the editor that said this was something people want? The only people that care about this are the same people who say "I can't wait for the Kitty Pryde movie!" Why? She's had one story of relevance outside of the late 80s. Some people talk about DoFP like its up there with Dark Phoenix. Listen here, DoFP was two issues. So that's it. "Professor Xavier is a Jerk!" and DoFP before being in Excalibur and then limbo basically until the late 90s when she came back to the X-Men proper, at such time I can't recall her doing anything until Whedon's Astonishing run. Kitty is not this transcending fan-mongering vehicle. I can ask everyone I work with "who's Kitty Pryde?" and they'll shrug. Guaranteed. Oh, right, they tried to make her a thing in X-Men Evolution.

I've got mixed feelings about Kitty. I like the idea of her and her powers, but she annoys me a lot of the time and I can't stand the circle-jerk that's centered around her among many X-Fans. I did, however, like her in Whedon's Astonishing as a foil to Emma Frost

Sales are kinda what I expected. there's alot of x-books out and none are doing spectacular. Iceman just ended his run at 11k. and will now lead a X-Team on X-Men Gold. There is a overall sales problem with Comics books. Not sure what Marvel can do to fix.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: Nekobaghira on March 14, 2018, 08:25:30 AM
Sales has been a problem for a very long time. Expectation is high at the company but the product is low (Marvel or DC may not think so but ...), the whole continuity lite and new reader friendly isn't helping them. The movies aren't helping them. Is comic books a dying medium? Maybe? I don't know.
Title: Re: Gambit Watch
Post by: DonPriceTag on March 14, 2018, 09:23:36 AM
Comics aren't dying. Its just that expectations and reality are in conflict. It's not dead, but its definitely contracted. I think the days of all Marvel books selling in the 40k to 60k range (forget the days when X-Men sold 100k each month) are over and they haven't embraced that and adjusted their pay rates accordingly. This is why books get cancelled. They are still using an old model to sell books and pay creators. Instead of paying them in the form of a contract, they should do profit sharing. So the company always gets their money and the creators are paid by merit and they bring in. It'd push them to do more. Better writing, better art, better customer interactions, more grind.

I found it to be overly ambitious from a narrative standpoint, and ham-fisted in its attempt to be politically driven. Like someone that kind of knows what they want to do but doesn't really have a good angle to attack. And by time this team is "assembled" it'll be bogged down and crowded. I just don't see how adding Gambit as an 8th character is going to work. (I'll post extended response in X-Men Red thread)

The one thing I miss about X-Factor was PADs ability to mold banter. The conversations that were had were pretty top notch. I loved Gambit's back and forth's with Quicksilver. I also miss the chemistry Asmus created between Gambit and Wisdom. Hell, the way Asmus wrote Gambit, period was pretty awesome imo. Lot of deep-cut stuff most writers don't bother using. Like exploring Gambit's underlining intelligence, or his affinity for TNG and Harry Potter (probably Asmus pseudo-projecting, but it fit).

It seems that AXM won`t end with 12. Rumour is that it will continue with a new writer and Land on art.

Hmm interesting. Really not a fan of Land, but if they writing gets better I'd be interested bc I really love the lineup

I'm on the fence with this title. Like PAD's older X-Factor ... back in the day, it did whatever the writer wanted. Now, with the audience getting smaller, there isn't as much investment for the satellite books.

I can't say I would like it to continue or not because Soule's version has been disappointing. While I know Liu's got her detractors, I thought she handled the book pretty well for the most part. It wasn't perfect by any stretch. LOL

X-Men Gold 26, just flicked throug it, Gambit was Right, he doesn't seem to take part in the ensuing fight but he does show up later at Peters Bachelor party with Iceman, Pyro, Peter and Kurt, he has some fun banter with Kurt saying they will be doing this one day for Gambit to which Remy replys Kurt wouldn't be able to handle his Bachelor party, Kurt says he will accept that challenge  :) Remy says its hypothetical as he doesn't see him and Rogue ever getting hitched (this seems to be going with Gambit and Rogue being together) anywho its all fun and a nice appearance by Gambit except he uses the term boyo twice and i know he has used it before but its just so odd and Irish its just wrong lol

If you ignore the "boyos", Gambit was actually okay in Gold #26. It was refreshing to see him mingle with Nightcrawler, Colossus and Iceman for a change. Not often we see that with Remy, nice to see Guggenheim provide that.

*sigh* Not surprising because Guggenheim is a big Romy fan. Too many Romy writers currently. We need Marjorie Liu back to help balance that out. It really sucks that Gambit is starting to return to prominence and is immediately stuck with that albatross. I hope Tom Taylor is anti-Romy.

Was Pyro really there? I haven't been keeping up much with comics because of Romy garbo and Queen of Losers Jubilee, but Pyro seems like an odd guest. Did he turn face recently?

Cool to hear Remy and Kurt interacted. That's one of the things I want most from X-Men Red. They always felt like people who should be buddies, but never got a real chance to interact.

I didn't get "pro Romy" from that... It's observing continuity. Writers chosing to embrace and ignore certain aspects of characters is the reason Gambit turned into Racky, why Mystique is a X-Man, how Rogue ended up with Magneto, how Wolverine became an Avenger, all of the Inhumans vs X-Men foolishness, so on and so forth. I think it's healthy for storytelling and great for business as you encourage people to read other books. Otherwise we're reading collections short stories.

I mean... Okie dokie? I don't get the point of your rant. Guggenheim has literally said Gambit/Rogue is one of his favorite couples of all time in an interview and that's where my "pro-Romy" comment comes from. Though, I can't find that interview now so I might have hallucinated it.  Anyway, all I was saying was that I'm not surprised he went there instead of a more generic, but still continuity observing "I've already been married once and I can't see myself getting married again."

"rant"? C'mon, that was like three lines...  ??? . The point of my "rant" was, I don't think it reflects his like or dislike of the relationship, but recognizing it exists especially in the light of an upcoming wedding. I'm sure if Angel and Psylocke were still a thing and Warren were there, the joke/ comment from Kurt would have been extended to him. Writers have this thing about ignoring or adding aspects to characters to suit their narrative. I mean, not bringing it up would have been stranger than anything IMO. I blame weak editorial. Even in the case of clown pants Gambit. I think I've voiced on several occasions my disdain of that cameo. I'd love for someone to address that, even if to explain it away... got a thread idea lol.


Did he say that? I'm asking, I didn't read the issue.

R&G 5 was normal. It wasn`t bad. It was just not as great as previous issues. Also last issue is too Rogue centric for a team up book. Still liked it but dissapointed a little bit. But mini as the whole is very good.

AXM 11. Lame. Gambit speaked only with Rogue and had 1 scene where he made a bait for Proteus.

X-men Gold 7. 1 scene with Rogue and 1 scene where he threw cards into robots. Nothing interesting. really.
