Gambit Watch 2022

Gambit Watch 2022 - Let's roll with it baby, baby, let it roll.
I hope that 2022 is better than 2021.
I will close the other thread.

Props to the person who made the art. I would credit but can't find the name, if someone does, lets give the love it needs. :)

Love you all Gambit Guildies.

We love you too, Neko. Youve been a staple of the online Gambit fan community for as long as I've been online. Appreciate you.
As to the art, it's the character model for Gambit in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3.

Wish I had a console that had the game available. Looks like a decent replacement for Marvel Heroes.

Miss that game so much  :'(

I can’t believe I have to wait til March to see him again! Whhhaaaa! Unless he shows up in X-Men so Rogue can yell at him some more, it’s going to be a long cold lonely winter with no Cajun spice.


Man, Inferno ended as a soft tremulous fart, my last comic for months to come! Sitting out the whole Wolverine series. They doubled down on that gamble. Good luck to Marvel Comics on that, bub.

I... I'm just really hoping Chris Claremont doesn't jump the shark on this. Keep it grounded and don't try to swerve too hard. Art expectations are high for me.
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

If Gambit gets possessed or something and spends half the time being a demon I’m gonna be so pissed.


I’m…not sad Hickman is gone. I like elements of this Krakoa era, but all the non-Hickman books I’ve read just seem to be just wandering around and have zero impact. No one could tell a story that might impact Hickman’s Big Idea. Which is all foreplay and no climax. Dude, I’m so frustrated.


I hope him leaving lets writers write more impactful stories.

Yeah, hopefully solicits or even some previews this month.


Gambit mini must be good cause except of it he just will be in Tinis prison for the next 2 years again.


Hopefully when X-Men 97 arrives on summer 2023 it will cause a new book for him.

C'mon now, it only happened once or... three times. Anyways, that hasn't happened in years... what are the chances? No, seriously... what are they? 10 to 1..?

Gambit kinda but not really shows up in X-Men Legends #10.



the events take place during X-Men 1991 #34, the issue where Gambit, Psylocke, Beast, and Rogue break into Sinister’s lab to find Threnody. Hearken back like 20 years our time…. Sinister is hosting a dinner party with Amanda Mueller, Xavier, Magneto (why, is he a scientist?), Beast, and Moira. Note that there are six guests, and Magneto would be a vegetable at this time. They’re gathered together to talk human/mutant relations, but they only have 3 hours to do it. Why? You’ll find out. During the conversation, Sinister, with Mueller’s cryptic remarks has a eureka moment of some kind where he realizes the future isn’t human or mutant, but homo-unitus (something like that). The surprise is revealed that everyone is a clone and they’re set to self-destruct (because deep-dive, remember how Sinister’s clones used to come in pairs) including Sinister who seems to develop a conscience and sends his genius revelation about homo-unitis through what I’m guessing is his version of The Cloud. Y’know, to save all life on earth. Meanwhile in the background, it’s revealed the X-Men are blowing up sh!t in Sinister’s lab causing his dinner party locale (a fold in time and space) to collapse on itself. As Mueller talks nerdy to Sinister re:homo-unitus, Gambit appears on the security monitors behind her head several times in a , I dunno…foreshadowy kinda way?


For all Nicieza’s talk about not remembering stuff, it sure seems like his callback to 1995 is spot on. I didn’t think that kind of geek-recall existed outside of fandom, but there ya go. The story is just…weird. It seems like a setup for something that could directly tie into the previews for Destiny of X, like the images of Sinister winning humanitarian awards.


I spent this issue laughing to myself and enjoying the nostalgia. …but then, I love Cobra Kai with a passion, so keep that in mind.
