Interesting article about another actor who is a Gambit fan.

Gambit / Re: Why is Gambit in Excalibur, again?
« Last post by Toadman005 on Yesterday at 11:20:11 AM »
If I had to pick, I guess Marauders? Just because it seems to make the most sense. But honestly I'm just not interested in anything they're doing in the comics right now. And with how they're going right now I really don't have any hope for Gambit being portrayed well at this point. It seems like very few characters in general are being portrayed all that well. And I hate to say it, but Gambit being a straight white male seems like it will mostly relegate him to the background of whoever is writing team books, subservient to whoever the female leader is or his wife. That just seems the way of the comics at this point. If he had a solo then that would be another story. But I don't expect much from him in any of these team books. Unless a new writer came in who loves Gambit. But even then I would probably expect them to focus on other characters they desperately want to push.


Nailed it.

Or older ones. TBH I'd rather reread early 90's books than anything made today.

It's a sad state of the affairs of the industry. It reads like a very bad fan fiction you'd find on some obscure website back in the early 2000's. The art is....mediocre, the author terrible and ignorant of the characters, and the story is stupid. Like I say, it's bad fan fiction put to print with an official stamp on it.

Gambit and rogue are married, but there no reason for rogue to be in Excalibur either. She has even less to do with magic than him. Apocalypse and betsy are the only ones ‘needed’ for the story, everyone else is padding out the cast. Like purp said, Gambit (and rogue) were added for sales on the apocalypse/betsy solo. And at the beginning it worked, Excalibur was one of the better selling side titles. But it’s fallen off because ten issues in everyone see’s it’s about apocalypse (illogically) flexing on everyone while betsy runs around confused (but with a sword!) and not much plot holding everything together.

Gambit is popular so they needed to add him to any book. Hickman has 0 plans for him so they added him to Excalibur to boost sales and so he can be just there.


X-Force ia the only good written team book. All others are average books at best. Gambit on grey line again, badass and part of X-Force team is exactly waht I wanted.


He could be on Marauders but not with Duggan as writer.


So if I would be able to choose second book it would be a supporting and good written character for Wolverine solo. Yeah, not the best option but better then other DOX books. Percy is a good writer.
