What would happen if Remy LeBeau and Kurt Wagner got into a fight? Both are quite agile and fairly skilled, but when it comes to mutant powers, they're bringing totally different advantages to the table. Will Gambit's explosive power knock Kurt out... or will Mr. Wagner teleport his way to victory? That's exactly what we're asking you this week and you have until Friday to make up your mind! If you already consider yourself well-versed on both characters, then feel free to jump right into the debate and drop a knowledge bomb (link is provided below). But for everyone else, you have until Friday morning (ET) to research these two heroes and cast your vote. May the better X-Man win!

Comic Vine Battle of the Week Rules

  • Combatants are in character (this means morals are on, people).
  • This is a random encounter.
  • They're fighting in a generic downtown city setting. It's unpopulated, at night and all standard city lights remain on. Assume they start roughly 20 feet apart and visible. There's a fair amount of cover between them (parked vehicles, bus stops and such). The entire area is on limits. This means alleys, rooftops, building interiors, etc..
  • All characters have standard gear.
  • Incapacitation, knockout or death all count as elimination.
  • "But Nightcrawler is dead" isn't an original comment. This is obviously pre-death Kurt.
  • And speaking of death, Gambit's horseman powers will not come into play.

CLICK HERE TO VOTE!!!

Viners, you have the week to research, debate and vote! This means there's no reason to vote right away if you don't have all of the info you need to make an educated decision. Check the homepage Friday for an updated article with the following:

  • My extended thoughts on the match.
  • A Viner Argument in favor of the poll's winner (can't include scans and must be in the poll thread).
  • Extra thoughts from other Comic Vine staffers.

Gotta go with Nightcrawler

#4 Edited by Lokheit (492 posts) - - Show Bio

Nightcrawler has the advantage here: Teleportation, ability to teleport his target to a location he can't scape, meld with shadows, incredible agility even if Gambit has peak human level agility, Kurt has enhaced mutant agility. Gambit won't be able to throw him cards fast enough, NC could simply teleport to a heigh where he can clearly see the cards comming and see how Gambit starts wasting resources. The moment Gambit has to start charging debris, which takes more time, NC can do a fast teleport, with no time for Gambit to try to charge NC body as that mass would need a bit more time, and leave him where he can only surrender. If he has fear of Gambit having a card under his sleeve saved for that, he can teleport him making contact just with his tail so he has enough space to react to a rapid throw by Remy.

Kurt has been able to defeat Colossus+Rogue or possesed (so no morals = more dangerous) Colossus + Wolverine before, and other combinations of X-Men. This should be easy cake for him.

PS: If this fight was with no morals, Remy's severed head would be flying over a cliff the second the fight begins.

Wow that's a tough one. Standard gear probably means at least one deck of cards and the Bo staff for gambit and either none or a sword for nightcrawler. (But none is more likely I guess) Ok first the stats both should have comparable strength, durability and speed. I give a slight edge to Kurt when it comes to agility and on the other hand a slight edge to remy at reflexes. In a pure physical encounter without powers I could see gambit at an advantage due to his staff but without it they would be too evenly matched for me to decide.

But now the powers come into play. Obviously with his cards gambit has a huge advantage in ranged combat. But with a teleporter there is little ranged combat to be expected so gambits main advantage is reduced to small card explosions in close combat or charging up his staff for a heavy knockdown.

Now to Kurt's teleportation, he has proven countless times how effectively he can use his teleportation together with his agility to strike from all possible (and a few impossible) angles against his foes. Although people like cyclops have found a pattern in his teleportation I think it very unlikely that gambit could exploit that, because I don't think he is that good of a tactician.

The costumes of both also work as body armor so I neither believe gambit could one shot Kurt with his staff even if he hits nor would Kurt have a easy time since he would have to aim for the face but I see it more likely Kurt scores enough hits against Remys jaw before he could smack him down with his staff or hit him with cards.

To sum it up 7/10 for the German wunderkind.

I'm going to have to give this one to Nightcrawler!

Teleportation is such a hard ability to combat, people like Spiderman or Daredevil stand a chance since they have their Spider Sense or Radar Sense respectively ( and DD can sense changes in the atmosphere ) but I don't see that the Ragin' Cajun' has the ability to do so, and he'll end up going down in this fight, though it won't be without an explosive attempt at victory.

Also, I've never suggested possible fights but I'm going to try!

Nightcrawler has at least as good hand-to-hand skills as Remy and is certainly more agile. Even in a straight up fist fight I think Kurt would win. If you add in powers Gambit just doesn't stand a chance. Nightcrawler has so many options for the fight--he could just teleport in and out while punching Gambit, he could 'port him into the air and drop him, or he could just grab him and teleport him around until the strain of teleportation knocks him out.

Gambit's powers wouldn't help much. His throwing cards aren't faster than normal thrown objects and Kurt certainly has the reaction time to teleport away from any explosions Remy causes. If the fight even started to turn against him, Nightcrawler could teleport away and stick to a wall in shadow and wait to re-engage Gambit at his own pace. I just can't see a way for Gambit to beat Nightcrawler without some serious luck.

#21 Posted by munkieKONG (100 posts) - - Show Bio

I just..... I just don't see how Gambit could win this.

First of all, let's be clear - if there were no morals, Nightcrawler would kill Gambit immediately. Immediately. 100%. The fact that Nightcrawler is a devout Catholic is the only thing keeping Kurt from teleporting Gambit into a wall, or teleporting away with parts of his body (aka teleporting the head off of the body - I forget where he did this, probably in Uncanny X-Force and as AOA Kurt, but still), or the classic teleport up and drop him from a height.

Second, If Kurt wants to get away, or not be touched, he is getting away or not being touched. The likelihood of Gambit landing a final blow is so small....... there would have to be small children in danger or something to prevent Kurt from just leaving and recuperating. In this regard, the only way Gambit could win is if Kurt finds it necessary to sacrifice himself.

Third, say they do get into a close quarters melee, which is the best option for Gambit overall despite his ranged cards/etc attacks, I think Kurt is just to quick and slippery even without teleporting for Gambit to land enough meaningful blows to win. And then..... just add the teleportation factor... so that's out for Gambit too.

With the environment - dark areas for Kurt to hide in if he needs a moment - no innocent bystanders for Gambit to use to Kurt's disadvantage (not that he necessarily would)..... I honestly think this is a 10/10 for Nightcrawler situation.

#22 Posted by FalcomAdol (116 posts) - - Show Bio

Probably Nightcrawler. It's less that he can win, than that he can avoid losing.

How about instead of putting them up against each other you put them each up against three random mid-level (but super powered) villains (if you can find 3 such villains in the Marvel Universe these days).

Also, this fight is more interesting if the city has a power outage, and it's completely in the dark.

I'll be the odd man out and go Gambit. Kurt is by no means going to teleslam Gambit on pavement. He is not going to kill his friend. This also means he won't teledismember anything either. Kurt is also not untouchable, considering both the Punisher and even Wendigo have hit him before. One of Kurt's biggest flaws is that he is predictable. Cyclops has predicted Kurt's patterns numerous times. Iron Fist noticed the brimstone smell of his ports and was able to attack when he ported to him. Daredevil has noticed it (but given his sense of smell, of course he can.) Gambit's a skilled fighter in his own right when it comes to his agility, staff fighting skills, and craftiness. His agility and skill were enough to battle Daredevil while leaping across rooftops, and DD's agility is better than even some superhumans. Gambit's also got some of the best reflex feats street levelers have to offer. He's fast enough to deflect bullets on multiple occasions from even machine gunfire. He's caught grenade shells shot at him and thrown back. He was fast and accurate enough to throw charged cards into oncoming web balls from Spider-Man before.

So someone who has reflex feats beyond some of the people who have tagged Kurt and has ran with him enough times to know how he operates and is smart enough to exploit them should be able to counter Kurt's one advantage he has. Cyclops has shown this is possible. While I will admit there is a big difference between Cyclops and Gambit in tactical abilities, Gambit is by no means an idiot and is extremely cunning. Gambit is quick enough and skill enough to respond and react to Kurt. If people who haven't even fought Nightcrawler before can pick this out, no reason Gambit can't. And unlike Kurt, Gambit has ranged attacks and it is perfectly possible Gambit can lure Kurt in. He sees him, throws some cards, Kurt ports to his location, and boom. Gambit lays a charged card with a simple sleight of hand. Given that Kurt also has his shadowmeld ability, Gambit is incredibly stealthy himself. A city setting at night suits him just fine.

I call that makes no sense. Like, at all.

Gambit vs. deceased Nightcrawler with a hole in his chest = no debate since one of them can't fight. Or breathe. Or anything.

Gambit with his insanely powerful and loosely defined Horseman powers = unfair, not to mention he hasn't had 'em for months.

I think people confuse Teleportation with light speed or something.

Example, Ultimate Nightcralwer.

As seen, Ultimate Kurt is a very skilled Teleporter himself, however it can be countered by skillful foes.

Now lets see how this works with 616 Kurt!

1) Tagged by Cyclopes who predicted where he will go.

2-3) Tagged by Iron Fist twice who predicted where he can go as well being faster than NC reaction.

4) Wolverine is faster than NC reaction!

5) As Kurt states, he is not as fast as Spidey in reaction time!

How is this so one sided!?

#32 Posted by SummersBlood (31 posts) - - Show Bio

While Kurt seems to be the heavy favorite here, it should be noted that he doesn't have a ranged attack. Even porting requires him to get in close, which could go very wrong very quickly with Remy's combination of heightened senses/agility and kinetic charging. If Kurt grabs Remy and ports him into the air, those couple of seconds would be more than enough for Remy to, say, charge up Kurt's outfit, then BOOOM! goes the Elf! I think Remy would also be quicker to get serious; any hesitation from Kurt is gonna equal a world of hurt. Unless Kurt opens the fight at 100%, I'm gonna say Remy takes this, especially the longer the fight goes on.

Gambit has beaten Nightcrawler easily before, twice, once in the Gambit/Bishop crossover comic book series, and once on the Wolverine & The X-Men cartoon. That's 2 times already Gambit has beaten Nightcrawler easily. I'm getting pretty tired of people saying "what if" they'd battle. It's been done. If you allow fans to vote for it, then Nightcrawler wins easily because there are more Nightcrawler fans (not really sure why, he's never appealed to me much) and lots of Gambit haters (also not really sure why, he's not a bad character). Gambit is a clever fighter and knows Nightcrawler's ability, so he'd predict where he'd teleport. Gambit would intentionally throw explosives at him knowing he'd teleport behind him, and then have some charged explosives waiting for him to knock him out when he teleports near him, likely from behind. Also, Gambit is a dirtier fighter than Nightcrawler, with no hesitations due to religious beliefs. Maybe if Nightcrawler had it in him to play dirty, like Azazel, he could stand a chance, .

But yeah, this battle of the week is a sham. Gambit deserves this one, but he's so unpopular nowadays, he even loses to someone like Nightwing just because some bias fans decided so.

With morals gambit wins because he is a master of the dirty shot. They both know each other making NC lose a lot of his advantage. To add on too that kurts morals do him in. He would waist too much time allowing him to be caught off guard. In a no morals fight the battle would end in a second. To who ever struck first

#38 Posted by Anjales (339 posts) - - Show Bio

hmmm I say stalemate. And here's why. NC can easily avoid losing to Gambit but he won't do much to beat him since this is morals on he won't kill his fellow X-Man. There is an argument in story that if he attempt to teleport Gambit to a high area and dropping him on the ground to KO him, but in order to do that he has to hold on to Gambit who will have the advantage hear, he can charge some card and make a small kinetic explosion to knock him off. Though Gambit specializes in long ranged attacks, they're not gonna help him against NC. Gambit has no way of tagging NC unless he gets too close.

my dude, Cadence.

You know how I think in battle scenarios, so I agree it isnt one sided, but unless Gambit has a way of predicting where NC is going to end up that I dont know about, than I say the person that can close distance in NC will win.

1-Cyclops basically trained NC. Gambit has far less training time with NC

2-Iron Fist is the best martial artist in 616. Above Gambit

3-Gambit has got his licks in on Logan but I personally rank Logan ahead of Remy

I know Remy has fought Sabertooth and people like that, but NC closes on people is pretty good in battle scenarios

#48 Posted by jashro44 (19594 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm posting this here just to give gambit some support....

All right Here are some scans of why I believe Gambit takes this. These scans have all ready been uploaded but I am uploading them again just to remind everyone:

Here we see various comments on nightcrawlers ports. The first scan is iron fist and nightcrawlers first encounter. Iron fist didn't know any thing about nightcrawler and yet he was able to predict his ports. And not only that but iron fist states there is one second between nightcrawlers punch and his ports. So there not an instantaneous thing. He has to think and actually punch gambit before he ports away. Next one is cyclops remarking how nightcrawler likes to teleport above people (an observation his team mates have probably made). The prior scan to wolverine punching nightcrawler he used a stealth trick to disappear. He knew nightcrawler would teleport down and look for him and then he got ambushed. This is just to further show its not just cyclops who predicts his ports. Again we see cyclops toss wolverine at nightcrawler so he tries to port above cyclops to attack. Cyclops knew this and tags him.

The point of these scans is to show that nightcrawlers ports have been predictable and this increases the odds of him getting tagged. Gambit being a teammate has probably observed nightcrawlers ports and probably knows nightcrawler likes to attack from above. So he has a very strong chance of guessing nightcrawlers ports.

Moving on to Gambits reflexes.

The first 2 scans he deflects bullets with ease. Next he gets surprised by rubber bullets and dodges the shot and the second scan is a nice showing of the potential radius of his blasts. The final scan shows Gambit catching an RPG. I haven't seen much to indicate from nightcrawler that he has the reflexes of gambit. And another thing to consider is that gambit would also have better reach in melee due to his staff.

Now for accuracy.

First scan is self explanatory. The second scan shows gambit is accurate even when he is using his agility. The next scan doubles as both a reaction and a accuracy feat. Gambit shoots spider-mans web balls out of the air (spider-man has used his webbing to create shields after bullets have been fired). Next 2 Gambit throws his cards down sabretooths throat.

I know it sounds like I am down playing nightcrawler but the major point of the scans of him being tagged isn't to show him getting tagged. Its to show that his ports are predictable. Read cyclops comment about his ports. He knew where nightcrawler was. He didn't guess. Iron fist didn't know anything about nightcrawler and he was able to predict his ports after a short bit. Gambits reflexes are sufficient enough to tag nightcrawler and so is his accuracy.

Nightcrawler. Even with morals on he could still outdo any trickery Gambit would bring.

lol based on what? got any proof to that? Cus I got proof to the contrary (besides the fact that @jashro44: just gave 5 examples of how predictable Kurt is)....

Remy is faster than Nightcrawler, he caught a projectile shot at him (may or may not be at bullet speed), not only is he a casual bullet/laser dodger but he makes it look easy, a knife was thrown and was caught when it was an inch away from his face...

not only does he dodge bullets easily, but he displays agility to rival that of nightcrawler while he does it

More reaction speed (bullet dodging/laser blocking)

More of everything...

He's above Kurt as far as I've seen in speed and easily comparable in agility, now for Remy's combat speed against legitimate super human's with superhuman speed ..... Such as squaring off with and dodging Blade who has super human speed and decades of fighting experience/skill...

Gambit dodges Spider-Man who is also quite super human in speed and a casual bullet timer ...

Gambit hangs with Wolverine who is also a casual bullet blocker/dodger, known for his incredible speed as well as one of the most skilled individuals on Marvel Earth.

Last but not least, the speed at which he can charge objects for a simple KO....

And with that I can safely say that Gambit wins, teleporting around won't work when he gets tagged by an exploding card or is caught when he reappears since Remy is most likely going to predict his next move and slap him with a staff....what's your excuse?
