Interesting... When was the last time you saw the Gambit you adore.? Then I'd like to tackle your childhood and relationship with your mother. I'd also like to revisit this next week at next session.

I have not seen him in a long time.

What does my mother have to do with it? LOL

We can waste time if you want ...

...I think we're making progress here. I foresee a wonderful breakthrough for you.

Lol


The the 'men crying' subject, I don't mind as well as it's 'restrained' so to speak. I never thought of it as a PC makeover, but I guess it could be. He doesn't even need much of a make over. The ladies man/ harassing angle gets overblown most of the time.

I find it funny that people still let him use that title. Wolverine, Beast, Cyclops, Angel, and even Iceman have been involved with more ladies than him and most them are considered "square". Gambit has earned that title as much as Fantomex is the X-Men's "premier thief". But in today's ultra sensitive climate, I doubt that will change. I think sometimes people forget what may seem as a negative trait is still part of a person. It matters as much as a virtue. If we start cutting away everything that looks not all the way above board, we'll be reading stories about robots.

Ask Marvel. They are the ones that gave him the title during his Max series..

He did, which is kind of baffling, but it wasn't supposed to be very good iirc

You guys talking about the Fatomex Max mini series?  I never read it either, but heard it wasn't very good.

Ugh, don’t remind me. I think it came out around the time the solo was ending, or near there—it seemed like an extra f you to us.

And I agree that his relationships with women are blown way out of proportion.

You missed it because it was an epic flop. Debuted at 19K in sales and finished with a 4 digit number.
No one cares about this character except writers...probably because Grant Morrison created him, I dunno...
He's a cross between Gambit and Deadpool...but crap.

I'm actually surprised someone writing Deadpool hasn't made a crack about him yet... To be honest, if we ever got a Gambit solo, I don't think I'd mind seeing the three of them pull a job together... or Gambit and Deadpool working together, run into Fantomex (possibly doing the same job), and then the three end up fall in. Could be pretty fun. But it'd have to be via a Gambit solo. I don't trust anyone the writes Deadpool to do Gambit justice.

I would read it if it was written by someone who was also a Gambit fan. Otherwise I just know he'd end up being the butt of every joke
