With the announcement of the show, the first knee-bend comes from my man Clay Mann  ;D .  Lamenting how much he misses the franchise. Last I checked he was under an exclusive DC contract - but a public tweet is more like a warning shot. His contract is probably coming up and he's throwing out feelers. He's become a star artist. He comes back over the line he could probably pick his project. Avengers was a nice gravy boat with the MCU - but those characters are being phased out on the big screen. The X-Men is the new ticket for the foreseeable future. I said it. Cant wait for those "creators" to all of a sudden love Gambit.

Hickman told that X-Foice have planned stories for next 2 years.
Hopefully it means that 2023 would have X-Men relaunch inspired by X-Men 97 release.
Such big relaunches are planned in advance so I won`t be surprised if Tom King and Clay Mann would get it.


Some of their replies for old 2019 X-Men Monday.


AiPT!: OK, Tom, if you could do a 12-issue maxi-series about an X-Men character, who would it be?
King: Uh, does Jon Hickman leave any left? I don’t know, are the X-Men going to survive this whole thing?
AiPT!: Clay would draw it…
King: Who do you want to draw on the X-Men? You just want to draw Gambit’s butt again.
Mann: No, it’d be the original–the Blue Team, Gold Team.
King: The original X-Men? That’s 30 years after they launched
Mann: I’m Hickman and I redo the X-Men. Blue Team, Gold Team, 10 characters–done. Not this new Alpha Men with flowers…

"Alpha men with flowers" lol. That's funny. But words from a man locked behind an exclusive contract. He won't talk that recklessly, right now.
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

Jeez, has anyone read the Feb solits? Yeah, I think XTAS will be our go-to for news. Even if it is over a year away, we'll get interviews, character designs and teasers along the way in 2022. I know that Lenore Zann said she has the script that she'll be reading this weekend so stuff has already been written so it seems.

I noticed Chris Potter popping up in a LOT of comic-cons (with the rest of the voice cast) and doing many X-Men interviews in the last 2 years. I have a feeling Disney had the new series planned a little while ago with those teaser avatars (remember those?), and probably Covid delayed a few things.

It's going to be a long, cold, lonely winter.


All I want for Christmas is for Excalibur to be cancelled and for a new book with Gambit to be announced. Who is chipping in on my gift?


Our family Disney+ avatar is Gambit. I feel like I'm the only one watching it, so that's fair. Did everyone change theirs?


What do you want to see for Disney+ XTAS Gambit?


No headsock? Third-person talk? End up working for Sinister at some point?

1. A better display of Gambit's thieving skills.

2. The Sinister connection.

3. Some references to Nicieza and Asmus' solo runs. Courier, Joelle etc...

4. From a ROMY perspective, a bit more progression other than just having Rogue rebuff him and then fretting over him whenever he's in danger. Probably an X-Men #24 adaptation could be a good starting point.

5. Gambit and Wolverine team-ups.

6. Jean-Luc Lebeau appearance, unfortunately they missed an opportunity with 'X-Ternally Yours'

7. If they do costume redesigns. I'd go purple and black, I think the Disney avatar has that.

8. No third-person talk, if they REALLY must do it. Minimize it.

9. The cats.

I love all these ideas. Let's have Don weigh in on number 9.


One more: backstory on why Storm knows Gambit well.

Probably a reference to UXM#266-267.

There's Morlock Massacre as well...but I don't think Disney will go that dark.

I want
Jean-Luc: Original Recipe Dapper please, rather than Extra-Crispy Midlife Crisis Pirate.
Romy: please make them a couple...one that COMMUNICATES, ffs
Thieving: I realize it'll go against his statement at the end of X-Ternally Yours, but I don't care, I want him to be a thief. Or, at the very least, use his thieving skills more on missions.
NO THIRD-PERSON SPEECH.
