While the medium of comics may be slowly being whittled away story telling isn't :). Disney and Marvel still have excellent opportunities to translate X-men into other mediums while still giving the core comic experience TAS, EVO, WATX and the movies heck digital distribution prove that. The x-men and what they represent is timeless I'm going to be sure I pass them on in some form to my children and ensure it goes at least another generation :). While I hope comics are around for much Longer than that I kind of believe the X-men will outlive the format and their stories will continue on well after.

Speaking of such things imagine re-living your favorite x-men tales in a VR world I am excited for the future of story telling :).

On a separate note what is the A- Force gambit appearance people are talking about?

I completely disagree with you based on something I have observed since I was 17 to 33, but I will respect your opinion. ^^

Wow, 25 years!  I can't believe we missed that.  I remember his 20th anniversary, but this one just completely went by my notice.  Come on everyone, y'all are slipping not catching that article when it first came out  (joking ;)).  I mean I rely on this place to keep up with Gambit news, articles, and upcoming comic appearances for crying out loud!

However, Jun 19th is an odd date to choose.  Gambit's first appearance was August 15th 1990 - that was the release date of UXM #266.  

Actually August 1990 was just the cover date for the comic- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cover_date

The actual release date for a comic is usually two or three months(depends on the year released) earlier than the cover date.  Uncanny X-Men 266 really came out in June.

We can still celebrate -  images, and fun stuff from now to the end of the year!

Yeah!  



I like this idea ;)

But for good celebration we need a tasty cake ;D

That's a really cool cake!

Thanks for being so polite I am not a wallflower so you can feel free to give me your opinion. Debate is good for the soul and broadens ones views I might learn something from it or not:)

Thanks Thjan for the info.  All good with the date, on places to buy the book its always listed as Aug.  I went with it.  Either way - glad we didn't totally miss it.  

Maybe we got busy this year.  I know this past summer was very busy for me with all sorts of home projects.

Anyway- like I said, we can still celebrate!

Shame on Marvel for not making it a bigger deal. And yeah, we don't usually miss much.  Not sure why it was missed.  Stuff happens.  ;D

Not just us, Marvel didn't care either and look at 2015 in general for Gambit.  Not a very good showing for his 25th year. Killed off in several SW books - and tbh MODOK didn't need to kill Gambit and that would have been okay appearance, Xmen '92 his TV show persona is a parody of him, and Gambit the Collector. 

I don't recall Marvel actually doing anything for any character other than Wolverine or Spider-Man when it comes to highlighting their number of years in comic book existence.

I loved this comments from appreciation thread

Askia: How in the world does the character retain popularity after being pissed on for over a decade, outside of Asmus and Liu..

Jiraiya: Pure awesomeness cannot be so easily destroyed :). There is just something special about him.

The sigil has a direwolf running on an ice white field, with the words 'Winter is Coming' underneath.

No they dont seem to ill check the old issues when im home see if something shows they might do, in Gambit issue 13 when back in the past the guild are meditating in an attic or something but there are banners with weird symbols which are also painted on their bodys, also the Guild have diamond symbols on their foreheads like  Sinister...interesting , also in some other issues when Gambit is shown sitting on the throne there are red banners hanging on the wall with a kinda flaming bird type thing
