Thanks, friends :)


Yeah, I think Namor will be the first one who would love to throw Gabby into action.

Dope purp.


In other news cbr made another list. It's a shocker, I know. Kids that are cooler and not cooler than their X-Men parents. They say Legion is not for some reason but they did list the Lebeau siblings from The End/GeNext.

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

Thanks, Don.


One more bad list from CBR. I can't remeber the last time when they made a fine list.

Gambit makes an appearance as part of the team in X-Men Gold #26. Nice panel with him successfully locating Mesmero

He comes off as annoyed. I like it.

I like the attitude as well. Does anyone know if that is the only panel he is in because if so, I'll just copy and paste the image to my machine and call it done. :)

X-Men Gold 26, just flicked throug it, Gambit was Right, he doesn't seem to take part in the ensuing fight but he does show up later at Peters Bachelor party with Iceman, Pyro, Peter and Kurt, he has some fun banter with Kurt saying they will be doing this one day for Gambit to which Remy replys Kurt wouldn't be able to handle his Bachelor party, Kurt says he will accept that challenge  :) Remy says its hypothetical as he doesn't see him and Rogue ever getting hitched (this seems to be going with Gambit and Rogue being together) anywho its all fun and a nice appearance by Gambit except he uses the term boyo twice and i know he has used it before but its just so odd and Irish its just wrong lol

May have to pick this up, then. This sounds like a fun interaction and I love Kurt

If you ignore the "boyos", Gambit was actually okay in Gold #26. It was refreshing to see him mingle with Nightcrawler, Colossus and Iceman for a change. Not often we see that with Remy, nice to see Guggenheim provide that.

*sigh* Not surprising because Guggenheim is a big Romy fan. Too many Romy writers currently. We need Marjorie Liu back to help balance that out. It really sucks that Gambit is starting to return to prominence and is immediately stuck with that albatross. I hope Tom Taylor is anti-Romy.

Was Pyro really there? I haven't been keeping up much with comics because of Romy garbo and Queen of Losers Jubilee, but Pyro seems like an odd guest. Did he turn face recently?

Cool to hear Remy and Kurt interacted. That's one of the things I want most from X-Men Red. They always felt like people who should be buddies, but never got a real chance to interact.

this is a New Pyro called Simon, he was kinda a bad guy but not really and Iceman gave him a second chance to redeem himself and become an X-Man, he went to bat for him with Kitty

I didn't get "pro Romy" from that... It's observing continuity. Writers chosing to embrace and ignore certain aspects of characters is the reason Gambit turned into Racky, why Mystique is a X-Man, how Rogue ended up with Magneto, how Wolverine became an Avenger, all of the Inhumans vs X-Men foolishness, so on and so forth. I think it's healthy for storytelling and great for business as you encourage people to read other books. Otherwise we're reading collections short stories.
