Forget about what's going on with them now and just go with a a dream pairing OR use current continuity to influence your decision. Whatever. Point is to pick whoever you like the best in this situation. Rogue is not on there because the idea is to go with an established character that is both fresh and new yet familiar. I have a lot of choices there but feel free to mention anyone else.


Pick 2: Your #1 choice and then your back-up choice or one that could be interesting.

I can't believe Sage wasn't on the list *wink*

I picked Polaris and Black Widow. Polaris has been my fav for him since the WATXM episode. I think Black Widow would be great for him ... they do shady things out of necessity and I think they'd be fun together.

I'd be a fan of a Polaris relationship.


But I'm hoping something happens with Psylocke in the new Ashtonishing book.   Probably a long shot with Rogue hanging out with the team, but that's always been my dream pairing.

Did you pick two? Because you can. 8)


I'm loving all the different picks already. I like to see who other Gambit fans would like to pair him up with.


I chose #1Polaris and #2Storm. I think Polaris just seems like a great choice. I just have a feeling with those two. Even when I was a kid I remember for whatever reason thinking they could be cool together. And now years later it seems like perhaps I might've been on to something. For Storm I just really see the two going on some adventure that just winds up with a lot of sexual tension and in the chaos of it all they give into it. And the whirlwind romance pretty much is contained within this adventure and they go back to pretty much normal with an added layer to their deep friendship. Or something like that.

I only voted for Kitty (didn't know I could vote twice), but it makes a weird amount of sense to me. The good girl who doesn't mind being bad sometimes and the bad boy who's better than he thinks.

Wow, we think alike. LOL I also would like something to happen with Gambit and Psylocke in Astonishing. I doubt anything will but it would be nice to see.

Been a Gambolaris fan for a bit myself. I had hopes with All-New X-Factor but PAD blew it and the book.

My first choice is Polaris. She is a little crazy and looks like she cares for person she loves. Also Gambit is the only person that make her shine under Magneto's shadow.


My second choice is Dazzler among others. She can fell close with him based on her previous relationship.

Went with Dazzler or Polaris... whoever picked X-23, shame on you.
Rogue being flung vagina-first at the first male that pops up on her radar isn't how I'd define "romance," but Marvel must be using a different dictionary than me.- NicoPony

She shouldn't even be on this list, She-Hulk, Maria Hill, and Captain Marvel should be.

Gambit and Emma would be such a power couple. Or Dazzler even. They'd be unstoppable.


However... voted for Polaris because like a lot of other people, I was intrigued by their relationship in ANXF. And Psylocke.. because I think they'd bounce off each other very well.

Nope.

I also like Polaris (LeBeaularis?), Black Widow and Kitty. Not at all keen on Mystique or Emma and don't think Laura/Jubes should've been options.

Blk Widow and Maria Hill would be very interesting, but would only work if Gambit were allowed to play in their world, and that's most likely through his Guild role. But at this point, I'd rather they'd continue to ignore it rather than force it or have one writer recognize it, and then another bettile it. Continuity means nothing to these guys, sadly. Crazy, big ol' shared universe that they refure to reset, and they choose to ignore continuity to allow "better" storytelling... Still waiting on this enhanced storytelling.

Nope, I like it too. I just gravitate more to Polaris because ... she is alive and an adult. The Jean I would want to see Gambit with is not available or currently "dead".
