I'm sorry. I know I am VERY late on this and maybe this is a little off-topic. But I just watched GOTG... Did James Gunn actually talk s*** about Gambit, and then turn around, steal his origin story and give a watered-down version to his Peter Quill?! Did that actually happen or is it just my imagination?!


The hating is real. It's like they all know Gambit is a great character, but don't want to admit it for some weird reason.

Happy that you liked :) Yes, greyscale and halftones. No colors. Colors are hard, lol ;D

It is so freaking strange. Like, dude. I promise no one will think less of you if you admit that you like Gambit. There's a reason he has so many fans. *smdh*


Anyway, I don't think this should affect Gambit's origin in the MCU. It's his and is a great story.

Really doesn't make sense. Fans of Fantomex should by proxy love Gambit. He's a shameless copy. Trenchcoat-wearing, french speaking, french named, "super spy", agile, marksmen, "ladiesman" member of the X-Men. If that ain't a carbon-copy - I don't know what is


"Buuuut Pricetag - they aren't anything alike! He wears a full mask and the product of a clandestine organization that manipulates genetics!"


Let me introduce you to the Black Cauldron theory and Mr. Sinister...
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

Ooooh...well, now it make sense why I would like GOTG. Of course it's a Gambit story!

I thought the origin story of Fantomex was to offer commentary on the 90s trench coat wearing, perma stubble anti-hero? Fantomex is not just a copy, he's a gimmick. The coolest, strongest, smartest, bestest, most tragic backstoryiest evah hero intended to make fun of fans who fully embrace that particular type without a hint of irony.

Except Gambit fans aren't Gambit fans because he's the coolest, strongest, smartest, bestest. So maybe Gambit and Fantomex are not the same at all. Let the Fantomex fanboys have their superficial gimmick knock-off. They obviously have no taste and can't handle the REAL THING.

This is all but good news to me! Cuz I also think his works sux hard balls to death... and the fact he doesnt like Gambit doesnt have a thing to do with the char itself, but with his lack of talent

[email protected] straight. The best current era series hands down was Wells' Hellions. And it PROVES there are no "bad" characters, just writers with no imagination who only want to write the same six characters they've been writing for the last three decades.


Some Channing/Gambit non-news-like rumors.

Just make him Jean-Luc or some other Gambit-related character!

That site is just a clickbait with false rumors.


I am in minority but still want to see Tatum as Gambit.
Tatum can easily appear in Deadpool 3 and Secret Wars as Multiverse Gambit.
