If Gambit ends up in Knights of X, I insist we all call it Kox. Not an acronym. K-o-x, but actually pronounce it as ‘Kox.’


Then we can say: “did you hear, Kox out this week!” “Did you see solicits for Kox?” “Kox just isn’t doing it for me lately.” Or “gosh, I am so excited for Kox! I can’t wait for more Kox!”


I think the best case scenario is Williams writing this book, really, unless it’s an entirely different writer altogether we haven’t heard of or had hinted at. I don’t mind her dialogue because she actually writes a team book and everyone has something to say. compare that to X-Men, which is basically a Larraz  coffee table book of beautiful pictures and Duggan occasionally throwing in a word bubble per page. Takes less than 2 minutes to “read” XMen. At least Williams isn’t Hickman, who drowns you in plot points so confusing you need a diagram to figure out what just happened. And then he literally gives you a diagram. Howard tosses up word salad while the characters do inexplicable things. I’ll take the Claremontian style dialogue bubbles where we actually know what the characters are thinking, feeling, and WHY they are doing the things they do.


I thought I was the only one that felt dyslexic while reading Howard.


Nothing to do with Gambit other than he has cats.
And to tease Don.

Hmmmm... My first thought was that is not Gambit but some villain that stole cool Gambit eyes because of short nose. But Larraz Gambit alwaysbwss alittle bit off for me so it may be him?
Gambit is on #6 variant by Larraz and Gracia.

i kinda doubt it is gambit. he's not scruffy enough. maybe it's that doctor stasis guy, post-irradiation?


i'd have liked it if it were gambit going to space/gameworld with half the x-team.


i could really give two shirts about who captain krakoa is.

Bad news that we all knew but didn`t want to believe. I don't know what Gambit's fans have done so badly in lives to get stuck with Tini Howard`s writing for years. I am out. Won`t buy any Marvel book till Gambit won`t be saved from Tini.

the only thing gambit did in today's excalibur is to ask where his cats were at.


everyone else stood around and told betsy she was great or talked about how great she is.

and fall.. He did a lot of falling, too. Cant forget that. One of the most agile X-Men characters there is... falling, sliding, and being an idiot.

to be fair...all the characters suck. they are the absolute worst versions of themselves.


let's look at the award-recipients for this year:
jubilee - worstest mom award
rictor - whiniest babyman award
gambit - stupidest himbo award
betsy - entitled self-absorbed b!tch award


honorable mentions:
jamie - conveniently useless award
bird-lady - who are you and why are you even here award
shatterstar - [email protected] award


congrats to all our losers! and on a special note, Gambit was the proud recipient of the [email protected] award last year, so him falling out of the stupid tree and hitting every branch on the way down is actually an improvement! Good for him.

Too cartoon-y. Everyone looks like they are 14-yr olds, even if they are given proper features. Laziness.

Going to be honest, this was quite funny to read! Well done!

Great news. I didn’t find anything about it being a mini, though, which is even better.

Me too. I haven’t bought comics in so long.
