hey guys,

I know these two are some, if not the most popular X-MEN,  i'm guessing that Wolverine is probably the most well known.

I just notice that Gambit is pretty popular w/the fans, and was wondering, do you think Gambit will ever get as big as Wolverine in terms of popularity ?!

yeah when they decide to make a movie about him, he'll come in close at least for a few yrs till ppl forget him again.

I actually think in the late 90's Gambit was more popular then Wolverine. That lasted all of maybe two years. But now I dont think Gambit will ever reach Wolverine statues. How could he? Logan's in every arc/team/crossover/mega-event Marvel puts out.

Your right about that! Wolverine is somewhat over exposed. I like both Gambit and Wolverine and I would like to see Gambit get more recognition :)

I don't doubt it.

If marvel makes a movie he'll be huge.. but I'm not sure if he'll be up where wolverine is.
Wolverine had many years to build is huge following and stardom. I mean the wolverine franchise even before the movie was huge. But in time I think if they sell Gambit well enough he'll be huge. He's already very popular in the comic world, but comic readers are not the norm or general public

I think Logan is close to passing Spider-Man in popularity, if he hasn't already.

You guys think wolverine has surpassed Spidy!? 

Do you think Gambit could ever gain a fanbase as big as Wolvie1?

he had in the comics in the 90's that it made me so torn between them.

Hahaha did I say Gambit could defeat Wolverine? Nope. I clearly said they have thrown down several times and Wolverine has yet to kill him. That's fact, read any X-Men comic and confirm it for yourself :) Again I'll say this again, it isn't a battle thread (does no one read the OP's anymore?). However, since you wanna throw out PIS feats I have one for you :D
 
 
Wolverine cant even take a Deer, let alone Lobo ;)

Alot of the people I know who don't read comics are pretty torn between Wolverine and Gambit. Gambit needs to have his own run on tv and it might raise his popularity. But he does have a fan site called Gambit Guild(Don't have the URL) He's been in every series and he is pretty cool.

HE COULD BUT WHINY FANS AND CHILDREN ONLY CARE ABOUT WOLVERINE.

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOLO MOVIES FROM OTHER X-MEN.

@thorson: I think Gambit might be one of the only other X-men that would interest me in his own movie, since he's one of the only other characters from X-men that works on his own and actually has an exciting life outside of being an X-man.

In many ways, he's already replaced Wolverine in that regard.

In my opinion yes, he has a better personality and those bada** card throwing skills.

I am fine with Gambit becoming the third popular hero again on the list. He does not need to surpass Wolverine or Spider man because he's already awesome as he is.

I would have it just like this:

1) Wolverine or Spider man

2) 2nd for the other

3) Gambit

4) Iron man

5) Hulk
