Hawkeye was kinda fun, though the whole set up was basically to establish Kate as the new Hawkeye and why Hawkeye was ready to ‘retire’. Which isn’t a terrible premise, except for the question of, ‘do super hero teams really need archers? When one retires, does he really need a replacement? Could the aveneagers possible save the world from alien invasion without an on staff archer?  ;D


The plot mostly involved, non-powered gangsters (who had no archers, surprisingly enough) and kingpin showed up (the most ‘exciting’ thing that happened, lol) Echo was one of his lieutenants, I suppose, and was she was fine (though her ‘right hand man’ and translator(she was deaf) looked a lot like a discount Jon Snow and that was kinda distracting…)

Wait, Echo is deaf? But her codename…oh, never mind.


Lol, re: on staff archer.


Well, She-Hulk looks really fun and Tatiana Maslany was amazing in Orphan Black, can’t wait to see what she brings to the character. I am hopeful for some romance in the MCU. WandaVision was the closest we got (as far as I know). They can do rom/com for She-Hulk, save the steamy romance for when Gambit finally makes his debut.

Gambit was mentioned in passing in the Gala today. Jean told Scott if he doesn't get reelected he can take Gambit's spot in the kitchen. That's probably why Gambit was around in X-Men. He wasn't tagging along with Rogue, he was the team's cook.  ;D

Random thing (I will post in the thread looking for all stuff too.)
My hubby went to a convention and his co-worker knows my love of Gambit. Hubby knows my love of Gambit as well, I don't think he actively looks for stuff. I was pleasantly surprised with the gift.  :D
Anyway, this is new - 2021 product. I don't know if I will open it.

He also ran a mini casino in the basement, lol

Yeah... I didn't get that. We know Gambit does cook and he takes pride in that - but I think this was just another dig. They really cant stand that he has a fanbase and they just try their best to denigrate the character at any chance they get. It wasn't funny. I confused me. Glad I just skimmed this thing.
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

I don't think it's a shot at Gambit. He's clearly supporting  the official elected team while not being elected. So how is it justified? He's part of the staff. It's a brilliant cover story too because officially they live in that tree because it's not public knowledge that tree has a direct access point to Krakoa, so you need to make it appear that the team is actually living there. Which means you need somebody buying food or nobody will believe they are actually living there and questions will be asked. Then you got Gambit running his card games in the basement providing another cover for the team. Anybody still suspicious (like the government) will see this shady behavior and conclude the mutants aren't as sparkly clean as they are pretending to be but the card games aren't serious enough for a bust. He's basically disguising their base as somewhere they are actually living in.

Yeah Duggan had mentioned in an interview that Gambit was hanging out in the Treehouse kitchen, cooking meals for the team. Remy’s a doll that way. The few times he’s in Excalibur not being an idiot he’s feeding people, hosting family dinner, making eggs, giving away food. I love that about him.

To be fair Gambit would find everything that everybody else cooks to be bland, except for maybe Rogue who probably never learned how to cook.  ;D

the real reason he threw her pie at bishop is because he didn't want to be forced to eat it.

X-Men THEN: Cool mansion with secrets underneath, two great teams, Blue & Gold, each led by respected leaders and made up of A-list characters.


X-Men NOW: Mutants living on a mutant-only island, which is actually a mutant itself, with multiple teams, one on Mars, one on a pirate ship, one in a world of Dungeon & Dragons, and a main team living in a tree, each filled with mediocre members. If a mutant dies, 5 mutants lay a big egg and bring them back.

I tried to get through this whole 2-hour Chris Claremont interview but it was a chore and I had to stop because I wasn't getting anything. He blabs on and on about all his great ideas that were shut down or stolen and why so many other ideas aren't as genius as his. He comes off incredibly bitter and pretty unlikeable. Maybe just having one of those days. I don't know.


Oh, and even though Gambit is in the title it only comes up a couple times and only twice does he even talk about what's in the series but all he wants to do is talk about "Ro". Nothing about Remy. Doesn't exactly build my anticipation for the series.

Storm was always CC's favorite. Always.

yeah… when i saw cc was doing a gambit series I was willing to give the benefit of the doubt.


when they said it was set in the past, I was okay about it. hey, at least no rogue.


when it co-stars Storm…well, why even have gambit on the title at this point.


Howard killing gambit off on top of that, my enthusiasm at an all time low.
