Wow, this is Marvel Top Ten Best Costumes. I saw this post earlier but didn't watch. Some choises like Hercules are funny but Gambit made it in #6.

I always thought that Gambit costume was the coolest in XTAS.

Lol to see Hercules there.

Mentioned in one of Cracked.com's articles today----apparently he could solve the world's energy crisis all by himself. (The author clearly isn't a fan though; he describes Remy as a pickup artist who 'smells like Axe and beer-sweat'. XD )

http://www.cracked.com/article_23698_5-far-better-uses-superpowers-than-fighting-bad-guys.html

Came here to post that. Yeah, it's the usual trash-talk PUA bullsh*t. (When did that start anyway?) I do like that the author is being called out in most of the comments--well, last time I checked--and there are a few posts pointing out the Gambit entry.

UA #9 colored no lettering yet. Gambit wearing a snowcap is odd.

Do not like coloring for Gambit costume.

It is not bad but not as good as it could be.

I don't like the ball cap on Gambit but whatever. The costume doesn't look right but whatever. Hopefully it won't be a lame cameo.

Too much hair. This face is a bit too round... At least they got his eyes right. I would hope by now they'd (Marvel) would stop ignoring their own continuity and quit portraying Gambit as some run of the mil, two-bit thief.
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

It's nice to see a lot of trades coming out with Gambit involved in those. Any push for the character is a good one. Even if they aren't "new" stories.
