Marvel link is not working yet.


We must vote for Gambit if he will be on list.

No Gambit on voting list. So don't bother.

Yeah I just heard that the X-Men vote for the team is an actual vote-vote. Don't know if it's for the whole team or just pre-determined spots. I don't have much faith in a vote for an X-Men team that's predominantly sourced via Twitter.

The vote is for one spot on the team, the rest of the team was probably picked by Hickman

Gambit is not an option, thus I am not voting. Yeah, the image is small but once you go to the site, you'll see your choices.
Also, one vote per person.
edit: there isn't a write in vote.

Not an option. Hey, maybe he's part of the team Hickman already assembled. I doubt it. But maybe!

At least this is a list of X-Men time forgot. Always loved Banshee, Marrow, etc, so I may vote.

Hickman ignored Gambit in everything so far and didn't write even a single panel with him.


Zero chance for Remy to be on X-Men team.

I enjoy the optimism but I don't think Gambit will be in the book. However, I've been surprised from time to time. I hope this is one of them. I miss this hobby.

Does anyone actually think if Gambit was in this book that he would be handled well anyway?

Trying not to be pessimistic but no. He's been handled horribly for a long time, I don't see that changing. However, one can hope.

With Hickman's monopoly presumably lasting at least a decade longer I have no hope at all that Gambit will have a relevant role in another book in the near future, much less be written well. This current phase is garbage and will continue to feature the same characters as always. No hope for Gambit now  :(

Unless Disney intros him in 2 years or so, and makes a giant pile of cash and then Marvel Comics will be standing there with their collective D’s in their hands, like wait...wut?

I've said it before, things will change only after Gambit is introduced in the MCU but that's three years away in the best-case scenario.
Title: Re: Please vote for Gambit
Post by: DonPriceTag on January 30, 2021, 09:15:23 PM
I think it's all predicated on this MCU/Disney+ thing that's been heavily rumored by Disney putting out all those Gambit-related trademarks. I very much think if they are doing a Gambit show it's probably going to borrow heavily from Fabian's run (where we saw a lot Gambits past developed) and the 15' script we read.

That feature, whatever it is, comes out, Gambit automatically goes up for more usage with a writer that wants to use him either because they like the character or want to use him as a launchpad. Either way I'd see it getting the upmost regard. For goodness sake, they made Blade an Avenger ( :idiot2: ) and they relaunched Morbius...

Morbius, y'all.

It seems Marvel right now is only pushing properties that will get movies. Shang Chi got mini and ongoing right after it and second new mini. Eternals got ongoing with a Top writer.


Wanda and Vision got nothing at all, lol. FalconAnd Winter Soldier got a 5 issues mini that was just a cash grab with no changes to heroes or influence on other books.
Will see how it will go later.


We desperately need a great MCU Gambit.

I can't say much for Vision outside of his series a few years ago but Wanda has had stories revolving around her nonstop. She's always been very visible.

Yeah, but they both have a D+ show but are absent from Marvel books. It is strange that they both have no solo or team.
Title: Re: Please vote for Gambit
Post by: Nekobaghira on February 01, 2021, 07:59:34 AM
I don't need a book or team if the TV show is good (I'm speaking about Gambit).

Wanda and Vision not getting a book or having a team is moot. They were part of a long string of movies for MCU, that exposure alone is probably enough. IMO

There are plenty of books made into TV series and a large number of them aren't good at all. If they go to the older material for Gambit, update it of course then I'd be fine.  IMO
Title: Re: Please vote for Gambit
Post by: purplevit on February 01, 2021, 09:36:14 AM
I do need a new Gambit solo if MCU will ever create a Gambit series or movie.
And I want and hope that movie will help this book to live longer or get a new chance to be relaunched.


We desperately need some focus and attention to Gambit or he will continue to be written as crap wallpaper in the hands of bad writers like Howard.
In the latest interview Howard was asked a question kinda why Gambit and Rogue are in Excalibur and she answered that Rogue will do smth in the next arc. She just ignored Gambit and didn`t even bothered to answer something about him.

I'm not saying I wouldn't want a book or even buy one but it can't be by the last two writers. I know there of fans for MMX and what not but I would want some adventure without being stuck to another character. More importantly, storylines for Gambit instead of support or borderline background. Just me though. :)

As I noticed before with TH, she can't relate to or chooses not to relate to him because its not what she wants write about. IMO

I've given up on comic books, there is no reason for me to drive 40 minutes, buy a book at $4-5 for the stuff that has printed over the last few years.

 
I think TV guys/gals could actually write him well. If TV writers can put a polish on books (novels) that I think are less than stellar (poorly written in my view) and present it for TV and people watch it, then its completely doable to add a shine and adventure to Gambit.

 
My fingers are crossed with you.

I feel you. I won't buy anything from Tini Howard ever again. Even if that would be a brand new Gambit solo secretly written by Fabian and with Skroce, Mann and Larraz as rotation artists.
Title: Re: Please vote for Gambit
Post by: DonPriceTag on February 01, 2021, 08:49:43 PM
Being a fan of MMX doesn't mean I want pt2! But I'd take it over this Tini nonsense.


My wish is a Gambit solo focused on him and his expanded lore and rogues gallery. It can easily be blended into what the X-Men books are doing especially along the lines of Marauders and even X-Force.


I for one don't believe just because he's married to Rogue that they have to be written together 24/7. Being an adventurer is a job. Most married couples don't in fact work together lol.


The fact that these writers can't fathom the idea of them not being in each other's orbit screams to me that they have a fair tale impression of what marriage is. Getting married doesn't mean you and your partner are glued to each other.


And goodness sake, can they pull back with all the cat puns?


Also, let's get this right... I #&#$&#& hated X-Men Red.  >:(

Maybe Rogue’s role will be with her being a glass paperweight again. Honestly,
 best use of her character yet.

Trademark, copyright or patent may be in accurate. "Reserve" is probably better. I'm sure all the names are already owned by Marvel.

Gambit is Registered Trademark, a "typed drawing." According to the Patent and Trademark office, he's still owned by Marvel. But I suppose they could be a wholly owned subsidiary of Disney...? Don't know why it wouldn't be refiled under the parent company.


Copyright is for written works. Patents are for inventions and processes.


Maybe Tini didn't have anything to say about Gambit because he's off having his own adventures where he gets moved to another book entirely. Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side, keep on the sunny side of life....!

Well, I did want to be Remy when I grew up as a 12 year old. Alas, I never grew to be 6'2", have red eyes, a cool accent, or a charm ability, and devilishly handsome. And wearing a trench coat, while cool, gets you questioned by authorities a lot.

If Hugh Jackman who is definitely too tall for Wolverine can pull it off, why not you with Gambit.  :gambit:


Howard's handling of Gambit is lazy writing. IMO. We can only hope, Gambit gets a new writer and a different book.

I had a trenchcoat, it got stuck in an escalator ripped the bottom to shreds. The issues with height challenged people. :)

I got the height. Coordination and dexterity, not so much. Also my awesome trench got stole in Venice. Now I know how one of Gambit’s victims feels.
